Rick Neuheisel recaps Georgia's dominance, calls Stetson Bennett the 'little train that could'
Rick Neuheisel discussed Georgia’s dominant season and praised Stetson Bennett for his unexpected rise as Georgia’s starting quarterback.
Georgia finished the season with its 2nd national championship in a row with a 65-7 win over TCU on Monday night. Georgia’s offensive success was due in part to the meteoric rise of Bennett over the last 2 seasons.

While appearing on ESPNU Radio on Sirius XM, Neuheisel covered Georgia’s dominance throughout the course of the season.
“It may have been feeling like a monsoon in Los Angeles, but it didn’t dampen anyone wearing Georgia red,” Neuheisel said. “It was dominant and then some. It was men against boys. And that’s not to knock the TCU Frogs. They would say the same thing if they were being honest.”
Neuheisel mentioned the inclement weather in Los Angeles during the national championship and noted how it did not impact Georgia’s performance. Neuheisel went on to explain what that game did for Bennett’s legacy in college football.
“Stetson Bennett will forever be etched in history as the little train that could because boy, could he. He played brilliantly last night and so did everybody wearing red. They painted the town red,” Neuheisel said.
Georgia closed out the 2022 season with a 15-0 record.
