  Draft Scout by Conference

  Smart continued to give every indication that Bennett will remain the starter. That seemed obvious given he stuck with Bennett after two more interceptions Saturday to give him five in the last two games, matching the number Jake Fromm had all of last season in 14 games. "There was no discussion about it," Smart said. "A batted ball on a pass that he's got to get around a guy is not a real struggle. I know you could say, 'if it happens once, shame on me. If it happens twice, shame on you,' but it's one of those things where he's got to wrap the ball around it, he's got to throw it away, he's got to get another opportunity."

Bennett's two worst games in pass efficiency have come in the last two. Smart isn't judging Bennett on metrics like that but instead on things such as his second rushing touchdown of the season Saturday. "He also did a lot of good things in the run game," Smart said. "He pulled a ball and scored with it. He put us in the right run plays. He handled motion. He handled clock. He did some good things. He didn't get a chance to throw the ball an awful lot (Saturday) because we were able to run the ball." Smart and offensive coordinator Todd Monken haven't turned again to redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis, the starter against Arkansas, or Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels, who has yet to play this season after a torn ACL last year. Making a quarterback change for Florida blew up on Georgia in 2015 and contributed to Smart ending up as Bulldogs head coach. The SEC Network broadcast crew said repeatedly Saturday that the impression they got after talking to Smart and Monken is that this is Bennett's team. - Athens Daily Banner
