“Oftentimes, the most popular player on a roster is the backup quarterback.”

Which begs the question:  when do the trolls start talking up Stetson Bennett IV?

    Well, obviously the coaches won’t play him because he would prove them wrong. He’s the real deal, much better than Eason or Fromm. I heard it from a guy that knew his sister in high school.

    How’s that?

      If you were bringing your trolling “A” game, you’d compare Bennett’s high school stats to Eason’s UGA stats, then mention how they’re also better than Murray’s first season at Georgia.

    At 6 feet tall and 171 pounds, Bennett is more likely to see meaningful playing time at intramural flag football than he is at QB for Georgia. The kid is at UGA to pick up a legacy pharmacy degree and fill scripts for his mama and daddy.

      The kid is at Georgia because we have 2 qbs on scholly, and he might not be embarrassing if he HAS to take some snaps.

      As for accolades, is he the best IV we have ever had at UGA? Can we say that without ever seeing him play a down. (UGA IV not considered of course)

        The kid is at Georgia because his mommy and daddy are alumni of the UGA College of Pharmacy and own some drugstores in South Georgia. If he is going to join the family business (a safe bet since he would be a 3rd generation pharmacist) his only realistic school choice would be UGA (Mercer has an Rx school but it is in Atlanta). Mommy and Daddy are generous donors to the pharmacy school, so IV would have to be a total screwup not to get a legacy admission to the College of Pharmacy. He’s not here to play football.

          I bet it would help the family business if he played some football while getting that pharmacy degree.

          You sound a little bitter about something with all the condescending ‘ mommy and daddy ‘ comments and vaguely questioning his qualifications for admission to pharmacy school. Matter of fact, you’re coming across as a complete dick. Why don’t you lay off the kid until he actually does something? My guess is there’s got to be some personal history here.

          legacies get preferential admissions at UGA?

            The politics of admission to UGA pharmacy school is far different than admission to the university. It’s very competitive but the College of Pharmacy does give preferential treatment to legacies.

              that might be. But last I checked, students are admitted to UGA and apply to COP there Soph year.

    His size, 6-foot and 171 pounds, is likely what kept Power 5 Conference programs from offering him him. Bennett’s film shows a quarterback who has mobility and arm strength.

    I see him starting in JAX running our Pro Style O. No one would see that one coming.

    There was only only line in that speculative article that caught my attention, “With what looks to be an improved offensive line…”. Improved OL? With 3 new starters and two that were average SEC talent? 2017 will be determined by our OL. Last season Eason looked like a deer in headlights for a large part of the season and could not hit water from the side of a boat due in part to the OL. Our running game was a complete mess due in part to the awful OL, and because Chubb was not 100% healthy. I want to say that our OL will be improved and that the offense will find its form in 2017, but I can’t nor will I. There are far too many questions looming that lead me to believe we will witness yet another bad offensive season…1) Will Eason take the need step up? Not likely due to inaccurate passing and poor field vision. 2). Will the OL improve? Not likely due to newcomers learning their way. 3). Will we see improved WR play? This is where I do have some hope. But will Eason first see them and second be accurate enough to connect with them? 4). Will Chubb return to form this season? My quess is no. The OL will certainly not do him any favors. The wonderful cherry on top is that we return a defensive unit that was unable to stop anyone in the red zone last season. So, sit back and prepare for another 8-4/7-5 season.

      I went to pharmacy school with III. Of course he was in Kappa Psi, a pharmacy frat for douchebags. Back then, III looked like he was a member of the Cobra Kai. Funny thing, when III was at UGA he never mentioned he played football at Southern. He was about 6′, 170 himself and when I recently read in the newspapers that he played football at Southern I found it hard to believe. If any of y’all saw him play at GSU, let me know.

    Wow Class envy at it’s meanest. Let’s damn the kid because we hated his father in college years ago. No wonder this country is going to hell in a hand basket.

    All jokes aside, Fromm, Bennett, and Eason’s yardage was pretty much the same if you compare Senior seasons in high school, Eason was the most accurate–then Fromm–then Bennett. Eason has the most experience of course. Fromm went up against tougher competition than the other two, I don’t know if that means anything. Bennett brings mobility into his game as a tri-athlete. So they all are intriguing, although Bennett is way behind the other two as far as reps go. I’d imagine Eason & Fromm are still splitting reps in the summer 50/50 like did in the Spring so that might mean something or might not.

    Here’s a weird thing, at Georgia, you just don’t see much a bump/improvement/performance at Qb numbers wise in year two, was true for Greene, Murray, and Stafford. So I seriously doubt Eason gets a lot better in season two, especially since Chaney is his coach who I have little confidence in, and we lost the majority of starters at offensive line this offseason.

    I don’t think Bennett has a chance to start this Fall, as he’s just too far behind the other two. Total redshirt.

    By the way, let’s not take jabs at Stetson, watch his film, he is a baller.
