23 for 23: Georgia Football Flexes Dominance in latest game

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett's decision to return for another season after winning the national championship goes viral, sparking excitement and speculation.

After Georgia's thrilling victory over Alabama in the 2022 CFP title game, Stetson Bennett paid a visit to coach Kirby Smart. The quarterback's heroic performance had secured the Bulldogs' first national championship in 40 years and elevated him to a legendary status on campus.

"Everyone's telling me I should just ride off into the sunset, be the iconic quarterback who brought home a national title," Bennett shared with Smart. "But why don't we do it again?"

Despite facing the loss of 15 players to the NFL draft, Bennett still had one year of eligibility remaining and was determined to make the most of it. His commitment to the team's success, even with a championship ring already in hand, was unwavering. While Georgia's first title-winning season had been defined by dominant defensive performances, the following season saw the team's offense take center stage. In the three postseason games, the Bulldogs scored an impressive 157 points, culminating in a resounding 65-7 victory over TCU in the CFP title game. Bennett's individual performance was equally impressive, throwing for 11 touchdowns with a remarkable passing efficiency rating of 204.86.

Despite the departure of 10 players to the NFL, including Bennett himself, Coach Smart successfully assembled a well-balanced team for the upcoming season, ranking sixth in the nation in both offense and defense. By early November, Georgia had secured its place in the SEC title game, setting the stage for a potential historic three-peat.

Although Bennett is no longer present to voice it, the spirit of his question still lingers in Athens and will likely continue to resonate for years to come: Why don't we win it again?
