Paul Finebaum on Georgia QB situation: 'There'll be a controversy at Georgia'
Georgia got all it wanted at Missouri on Saturday night.
The Bulldogs trailed 16-6 at the half and didn’t take the lead until Daijun Edwards scored on a 1-yard run with 4:03 to play in the game, propelling Kirby Smart’s team to a 26-22 victory.
Stetson Bennett entered the game in the eyes of many as a Heisman Trophy candidate.
While he finished with 312 passing yards in the game, it was arguably his worst outing of the season. And he was especially ineffective in the opening half as Georgia fell behind.
Is it possible that Saturday’s showing by Bennett and the Bulldogs could lead to a QB controversy in Athens?
It would seem unlikely at this point, but ESPN analysts Matt Barrie and Paul Finebaum discussed the topic during their Week 5 Recap on Sunday.
“We’re not creating the controversy, here” Finebaum said. “But I can assure you Georgia fans will be creating this controversy, and it’s as predictable as anything that’s ever been predicted. There’ll be a quarterback controversy at Georgia if this continues.
“I’m calming down on my Stetson Bennett for Heisman (rhetoric),” Finebaum added. “… That was pretty depressing to watch Georgia these past two weeks. … Georgia better recalibrate that offense.”
