    I can't understand the way some treated Stetson Bennett?

    Stetson has the most experience of any QB on the roster, and he's a good player. The other option - Beck had never throw a pass in a college game.

    Who do you think should start?

    Brock Bowers is a freshman sensation! Amazing speed and already runs great routs.

    People who booed the mailman doesn't know to much about football. During the COVID season, Stetson played good football. The two games we lost, he had the Dawgs in the led. The defense was not playing to the standards. If the defense was on their game, maybe Georgia win them both. Don't hate on Stetson because he was not given the media praise of being a top recruit. If you guys notice, it has been the lower ranking recruit who shines.

    I was upset like others about Bennett starting and I still believe it was the incorrect choice but I would never boo him. That's not a very classy thing to do. I guess those people are the same ones that yell constantly at the refs.

  • SmartsTheManSmartsTheMan Posts: 1,508 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Some people simply amaze me. Would they rather see the offense struggle for 4-Quarter's just to get next years 'maybe' QB a few extra reps?

    You would think Beck hadn't been given any game time and is not getting developed.

    1st game was Clemson: No opportunity to get another QB any reps.

    2nd game, first opportunity to get 2nd QB game reps. Beck get's around half the plays available, and he get's eased into the role.

    Meanwhile, today's first QB off the bench get's the other half of the plays, which could pay off big time if Daniels goes out in a close game against a ranked opponent.

    Isn't that the best possible way to manage the hear and now as well as developing for next season.

    It's one thing to say before the game Beck should start, CKS called him the #2, I get that. To say that it was the wrong choice in hindsight, I don't get it, kid was obviously not ready to lead this team.

  • reddawg1reddawg1 Posts: 3,562 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    We got the win, Carson got to play, and we can all evaluate what the near future looks like anyway, and it doesn't include Beck starting anytime soon, barring an injury., but he will still get to play some. Hopefully we'll get to see BEck and Brock compete for scrap time.

    Come on some of you Dawg fans! It’s a long season with a lot of big games to play in front of a national audience. Either learn some class or stay home, get drunk in your recliner and pass out by the third quarter. Oh, and give your tickets to some fan with class! Go Dawgs!

  • Dawg4lyfDawg4lyf Posts: 20 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Today was the perfect example of why CKS gets paid the big bucks to make hard (and sometimes unpopular) decisions while the rest of us sit at home / in the stands and watch. Bennett starting was the move needed with Beck coming in periodically to get his feet wet. This is why I will put my faith in CKS' game plans and not in [email protected]. GO DAWGS!

  • UGADad20UGADad20 Posts: 1,661 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I understand CKS wants UGA to look explosive on O for the media and for future recruits. There is no doubt SBIV outplayed CB15. He had the game of his life. But if you want CB15 to progress and be ready for bigger games this year and next he needs to be on the field. Growing pains against UAB wouldn't have mattered. If SBIV starts next year UGA will lose CB and BV to transfer. One of them has to start next year so they need to be prepared this year.

    Hard to say anything bad about the first 2 games but at times our OL couldn't block a parked car (except for pass protection which is awesome) Once this is settled there should be no glaring weakness.

  • rhbatchrhbatch Posts: 730 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    As a Dawg fan and simply as a human being, I cannot understand why anyone would boo any UGA player. I especially cannot fathom booing Stetson. Is it because he is not the prototype passing qb that is so much in fashion these days? Is it because he is not over 6 feet tall? Is it because we lost 2 games that he started (one of which we were leading 14-0 when he was injured and unable to return)? Whatever the reason, I have zero respect for anyone who boo any UGA player.

  • 87dawg87dawg Posts: 362 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    I was not happy with the decision to start Bennett, not because of his abilities but because of the constant talk about how Beck was number 2. My feeling is, how do you justify that to a kid who knows next year he will be in the fight of his life with the guy on the scout team. No one threw their first pass in a game till they threw their first pass in a game. I felt it did him a disservice, although admittedly, I have no idea what is said in practices.

    I would never, EVER boo one of our Dawgs. I have been unhappy in the past but I have never booed my team, much less an individual player. I think Bennett puts in the work and is a valuable asset to the team and the University but I do believe that if Beck started he would have had through the roof numbers. Seriously, Bowers was wide open on a short route where Bennett lobbed the pass, which needed to be lobbed, but I do believe Beck would have settled and lit it up. As for Beck's interception, it was a perfect throw but the receiver wasn't looking. Don't know who to blame but by that same token, was he maybe overplaying and forcing things to show he deserved to be in? I don't know.

    What I do know is I am unhappy with our running game. I question the constant rotating of backs, meaning no one gets into a rhythm. I know we have a bunch but I'd like to see one establish himself.

    Let's see. The University of Georgia football team just won a game by 49 points, the starting QB tied a school record with five (5) TD passes -- IN THE FIRST HALF; the defense has given up zero points all year while scoring two TD's of its own; the team is ranked 2nd in the country behind only the defending National Champion -- and yet many UGA (so-called) fans are still complaining. Yes, we ALL AGREE that Stetson Bennett is probably the least talented of UGA's QBs, but the kid is 4-2 as starter, and the two games he lost, he actually had us in the lead, so maybe we should blame the defense. And remember, Bennett gets far fewer reps in practice than the other QB's. Imagine how well he might play if he got his fair share. Many are saying, "Bennett played well and was the right choice for this game, but CKS STILL needs to find a way to play Beck to get him ready for next year." Let next year take care of itself. For all we know, Gunnar Stockton comes in as a freshman and is lights out and starts over both Beck and Vandagriff. Or maybe JT Daniels fools all of us and decides to return. I've decided I'm going to let the coaches coach and I'll just enjoy it. Please, since when is winning -- and winning big -- not good enough for us? If Bennett can keep winning games when called upon, I don't care if the other QBs ever play. And if that means they transfer, then so be it. I think UGA football will survive. Go Dawgs!

    So, complaining about anything UGA makes you a "so called fan"? I remember sitting in Sanford complaining that Ray Goff called a timeout against auburn and gave them time to rethink their punt. I believe my exact comment at the time was "that is the kind of decision that gets you fired".

    It did.

    As a fan I can complain, I can second guess and I can dislike. I will not boo because I am a fan but as a fan and a booster I am absolutely entitled to complain or be unhappy with any situation that I wish to be unhappy about. That does not in any way diminish my love and support of the players, the coach or the University of Georgia. I have that right as a 40 year booster. Not just fan. Booster.

    There are many benefits to blowing out UAB with Stetson Bennett, verses something less ( Carson Beck - Brock Vandergriff ).

    Brock Bowers - "For the second game in a row, the freshman tight end led Georgia in receiving yards. He found the end-zone twice, with one of them going for 89 yards." That doesn't happen if Bennett doesn't get the start.

    You can bet Oscar Delp is paying close attention and you can bet he likes what he sees. The same goes for any uncommitted Blue-chip receiver that Ga's recruiting. It's one thing to tell recruits, we can use you this way. It's another to prove it with real game evidence.

    So many seem to realize the value of developing Beck for next season, yet they seem to be completely over looking the future recruiting bounce from actually displaying an explosive offense.

    I think you can accomplish both at the same time. I think that's exactly what was accomplished last Saturday.
