ATHENS — Three Georgia quarterback cracked ESPN’s list of the Top 75 collegiate quarterbacks since 2000, but it could have easily been four with a couple of others deserving consideration.

Some interesting and controversial names — Rex Grossman (No. 30) and Colin Kaepernick (No. 31) — surfaced before the first Bulldog came up on the ESPN pay-site list at No. 37, Stetson Bennett.

Kaepernick put up giant numbers at Nevada, winning WAC Offensive Player of the Year honors twice and becoming the only D-1 player to pass for more than 10,000 yards and rush for 4,000 yards.
