The Georgia Bulldogs are riding high after a second consecutive college football national title.
The Bulldogs steamrolled the TCU Horned Frogs, 65-7, on Monday night in Los Angeles, and quarterback Stetson Bennett finishes his career with two titles.
The 25-year-old signal-caller went viral for being as old as he is, and now he will be headed to the NFL Draft to pursue his dream of playing football at the next level.
His college resume is quite impressive, especially for a guy who walked on at Georgia after being just a two-star recruit in high school.
However, because Bennett was not voted as an All-American, he will not be eligible for the College Football Hall of Fame.
Stetson Bennett will end his career with consecutive national championships having earned offensive MVP honors in all 4 Playoff games.
But because he wasn't an All-American, he won't be eligible for the CFB Hall of Fame.
That ain't right.

Bennett has two national titles, was named offensive MVP in all four playoff games, he was a Heisman trophy finalist, and held an impressive 29-3 career record as a QB.
However, he won’t be able to be entered into the Hall of Fame.
That’s a bummer and another reminder that the NCAA should consider changing the rules to allow players such as Bennett to get in.
Bennett was named to the All-SEC team but not an All-American.
Nonetheless, Bennett will forever be a legend in Athens and the state of Georgia as a whole, and it will be interesting to see where he lands in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft.
Bennett won’t be in the College Football Hall of Fame, but his resume will always be up there with some of the best in the game.
