Georgia Bulldogs fans are counting on quarterback Stetson Bennett to win Heisman

This is a comment from Charlie Russo, a Savannah resident and businessman and lifelong Georgia Bulldog fan.

I do not play. So the summer before college football started, I called my best buddy Denny to ask him to see what the odds were of Stetson Bennett winning the Heisman Trophy. Denny called me back quickly and told me it was 100 to 1. Wow! So I said we should deposit $1,000 with a chance of winning $100,000.

In my eyes it was a castle. Stetson was coming off a national championship and the upcoming season for the Georgia Bulldogs looked challenging but was doable with our talent. So we jumped on the Bennett train, and Denny and I paid $500 each.

So now comes the opening game against Oregon and we’re favored by 17 points; we win 49-3. And again we thought – wow! Stetson has a great game and now we think if we keep winning big Stetson is going to New York in December.

Stetson Bennett for Heisman?UGA footballer, Kirby Smart weigh in

Darnell Washington acts like Superman and does not jump over high buildings but high defenses. Wow! Brock Bowers is every quarterback’s dream – two of the most talented tight ends in the country. The coaches are the best on both sides of the ball – defensively and offensively. And offensive coordinator Todd Monken has never had so much talent to work with. The tools that Stetson has at their disposal are amazing.
