Stetson Bennett 'Didn't know football' before OC Todd Monken's arrival

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett’s historic college football career came full circle this season.

Bennett didn’t get a chance to be the preseason starter until 2021 and led Georgia to it’s first national title.

Flashback to the season prior in 2020, Bennett was given a chance to start as the Bulldogs struggled to find a quarterback post Jake Fromm.

Bennett wasn’t the only new face with a large part in that young offense that year as first-year,

 offensive coordinator Todd Monken had just came over from the NFL to take the reigns for the Bulldogs.

“Before he got here, I didn’t really understand football. Maybe I’m a slow learner,

but finally it did start clicking whenever he would tell me the same thing for the 20th time and look at me like I was,

“I’m your coach. And so just repetitive, just doing that. I think honestly, the most important thing that he’s done is just stay consistent.”
