Georgia Appears to be Sticking With Stetson Bennett at Quarterback


Georgia is coming off a bye week before playing Kentucky Saturday. Some are wondering if the Dawgs used the extra time off to prep other quarterbacks, given how Stetson Bennett played in Georgia’s last game against Bama. Bennett completed only 45 percent of his passes with three picks, and he had five passes deflected.

Reporter:”Given how the Bama game looked. Is Stetson still your guy? Are you still evaluating other guys? Kind of how are you in that?”
Said head coach Kirby Smart:”We’re always evaluating guys. It doesn’t change. Y’all can keep asking the questions, but we’re always evaluating guys at quarterback. They’re always trying to get better. Growing their game. Stetson is still repping with the ones. Taking reps. You don’t base your season on one game. You base your season on what gives you the best chance to get better, and that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
