Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett spoke Wednesday about the difficulty of repeating as national champions, noting the importance and difficulty of maintaining the hunger, drive and work ethic the second time around.
"Good or bad, what they tell you, it's not true," Bennett said, per ESPN's Alex Scarborough. "And then you forget—like, you literally forget how you did it. And it's the craziest thing in the world because you want to [remember], but you took so much time off that you've forgotten how to do the work to get there."
Georgia won its first national championship in 31 years last season thanks in part to Bennett, who threw for 29 touchdown passes, including two in a 33-18 win over Alabama in the national championship game.
The redshirt senior returned for his sixth and final season of NCAA eligibility this year and helped lead the Bulldogs to a 13-0 mark with 27 touchdowns (20 passing, seven rushing).
