DawgNation Happy Hour: Kirk Herbstreit discusses how Stetson Bennett can get his ‘mojo’ back vs. Florida

Georgia takes on Florida Saturday, and a number of UGA fans are skeptical of whether the Bulldogs are capable of winning the game given some recent struggles by the Bulldogs’ quarterback, Stetson Bennett.

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit understands the fans’ frustration, but based on some comments on TV Tuesday night, it seems Herbstreit hasn’t given up on Bennett as UGA’s starter or the Bulldogs as a championship contender.

“The challenge is where are we with Stetson Bennett and the balance of this offense? They could run the ball, but against Florida, they’re going to need to be able to stay up with Kyle Trask,” Herbstreit said. “That means Bennett is going to have to make plays, and he has. That dude plays with a chip on his shoulder, and he plays with an attitude. Now, he’s thrown five interceptions in the last couple of games.

“He went from being everybody’s favorite son to this guy is a bum. That affects your mindset. That affects who you are. They’ve got to get his mojo back and get his confidence back. I don’t think Florida can play with Alabama. I do think Georgia can, so they’ve got to find a way to get it going this weekend.”

It’s unusual to see Herbstreit more confident in UGA than some Bulldogs fans currently are, but everyone around DawgNation certainly hopes that Bennett can find his s0-called “mojo” again this Saturday vs. the Gators.
