    I wonder how good AR will be in 4 years when he is the same age SBIV is now?

    Not sure what the benefit is of being invited and attending, especially for a guy like Carter whose name has been drug through the mud. The best thing he can do is keep a low profile and work hard.

    "I wonder how good AR will be in 4 years when he is the same age SBIV is now?"

    If SB had AR's physical attribute combo of size 6'5", speed 4.4 forty and huge arm(75 yards?) he wouldn't of had to wait as long as he did to become the starter. Heck he might have even led us to a 3rd NC. He was overlooked not because of talent issues, (see what all the UGA defensive guys said about him on the scout team perparing them for the Oklahoma game), but due to his physical appearance.

    THen later the braintrust actually thought D'Wan Mathis was a better starting candidate than SB. All because he must of looked good in practice, I suppose, and the fact that he was the most gifted in terms of height, speed and how far he could toss a football. Sounds similar to AR-15? Great skill set however, If that were all there is to being a good QB, then the NFL would never miss on their draft picks and CKS and CTM woudn't have been so wrong about SB.

    If physical attributes and athleticism alone, defined a QB...they would be a lot easier to find. Lol

    I think, what it boils down to, is...do you want an "Adonis"...or do you want a "football player"? 'Cause, they aren't always the same thing.

    Bennett had something all, but, Young, Duggin and Stroud, didn't have..."HEART"! It's what allowed him to focus and sacrifice...and become the QB nobody gave him an ice cubes chance in hell, to become.

    Now, all those same so-called "experts" are bending over backwards, to nitpick his game...on the field as well as off. Why? To validate their initial critique. Lol...there's no way, they could be that wrong about a player. The arrogance of some of those critics, knows no bounds.

    I guess, if he and Hooker traded spots...Hooker would be the "25 yr old former backup that benefitted from a great defense". Lol...and, that wouldn't be "false", either.

    Stetson is going to shock some people, come Fall Camp. What WILL "They" say, then? More importantly...will the Sportswriting world reevaluate how they evaluate players? Or...are they going to hang on to the old "hype model"?

    I love Stetson's resilience and determination. I think the NFL is probably not his future. If he succeeds great but unless you are a bonafide superstar in the NFL you cannot get away with the off field stuff. Being a 3rd string NFL QB is a lot harder work then people realize and your years in the NFL are probably limited to 3-4 tops.

    Stetson would be better off finding a niche entreprenurial opportunity where he can use his namesake to an advantage. Since he loves to drink and have a good time I suggest becoming the front man for a new Kentucky Bourbon company. Turn his embarrassment into riches and prove everyone wrong.

    I really believe his drive will make him wealthy in the business world and that is where he should focus his energies. Not on getting beat up in the NFL running from 300 lb monsters.

    JMHO but I've watched enough football as an avid fan over 50 + years to know that there are and have been many back up QB's and even so called starters in the NFL that couldn't hold SB's jockstrap and they played and some currently still playing for many years.

    THe thing about SB is he is singularly focused on playing football. I don't think he WANTS to do it, it's more like he HAS to do it. It's who he is as a person, perhaps his greatest strength(motivator) as a player and maybe even his greatest flaw as a person. He doesn't know who he is outside of being on the field playing the game. I would liken him in terms of mental makeup and deriving his selfworth from playing to Tom Brady. Brady's got what 6-7 RIngs and over 40 years old and is/was still trying for more whereas most players well before his age with his accomplishments hang up there cleats and move onto the next chapter of their lives. Brady doesn't know how to let go. I could envision a similar type future for SB.

    I cannot see SB channeling his football mojo into a successful insurance business or some other venture. SB couldn't give a rats patoot if you like him or not, that usually doesn't bode well for running a successful business that requires that you care what others think of you outside of your performance on a football field.

    This is all psychoanalysis on my part, except I'm not getting paid, so, consider the source. Go Dawgs!

    Lmao...show me a College Football Player that doesn't like to "Drink and have a good time"...and, I'll show you a Ghost.

    Most people only drink on Holidays or Special Occasions. Let's see...Bennett had a drink or two after they won both Natty's...and one night in Texas. Sign him up for AA ! Lol

    People can't be that s.t.u.p.i.d. There's no way in hell, Bennett, or anybody else for that matter, could've achieved anything, remotely in the neighborhood, of what Bennett's achieved over the last 5-6 years...if they had a drinking problem. Or...went out every night. Didn't happen. Couldn't happen.

    The difference between Bennett and his fellow CFB QBs, is that the press covers for the other guys little mistakes. They seem to want to see Bennett fail...now. it's like they're saying...."we built you up...we can take you down".

    The only problem with that, is...the press had absolutely nothing to do with Bennett's success...so, they can't "take him down". That's gotta be eatin' em up inside.

    Lol...kinda reminds me of the "never-ending axe-grinding" the media has going on, with the former POTUS. They just CAN'T seem to "take him down"...no matter how hard they try. Because...they had nothing to do with him being there, in the first place. The harder they try...the more inept they look...even resorting to lies and exaggerations.

    That's your U.S. Press service, in a nutshell. Arrogant and frequently wrong...because they don't actually research stories or use actual sources, anymore. They monitor Social Media and ask a smaller publication to break the story, to maintain "plausible deniability" in case the story "goes south".

    That's the new US Media business model. Don't feed into it and allow them to manipulate your opinion about ANYTHING...including the UGA QB Situation. Wait for the "WHOLE Story". Today's media lags behind "The Truth"....whereas, they used to lead the way.
