Georgia soccer finally defeats its Alabama demons

Stetson Bennett is a good passer and moxie athlete, but compared to the rest of the Georgia and Alabama starters, he seems like something a little kid could hold onto in their sleep. Most quarterbacks are fired; Bennett is thrown. But most quarterbacks don’t win national championships for their home state team, and Bennett just won.

Georgia did, finally, but ultimately it’s all that matters. The Bulldogs won their first national title since 1980, and while there were long periods of uncertainty in their 33-18 victory over Alabama, in the end it was obvious that Georgia was the most worthy team. Alabama coach Nick Saban said it himself: Georgia was the most consistent team all season.
