Stetson Bennett IV cemented his legacy in the state of Georgia Monday night when he threw two touchdown passes and no interceptions as the Bulldogs delivered their first national championship to the school since 1980.
The 23-year-old quarterback had himself a night on the field and off the field if you believe what Internet observers took away from Bennett’s Tuesday morning appearance on Good Morning America.
Fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that Stetson might’ve done a little partying into the Indianapolis night after finally ending so much heartache suffered at the hands of Nick Saban’s evil empire.
First, let’s get to the appearance, and then we’ll dive into the reactions.
"You gotta bet on yourself." — Stetson Bennett on his journey from walk-on player to @georgiafootball's starting quarterback!

That’s clearly a grown man who needs a nap on the plane before firing up the party bus later tonight in Athens. Now, I’m not going to jump to some conclusion and assume that Stetson got hammered on the finest booze Georgia boosters could get their hands on. No, sir. I don’t know if Stetson drinks, but Internet observers hold their own beliefs.
They think there might’ve been some well-deserved partying going on late into the night and the quarterback was right in the middle of it all.
Now sit and think of what this win means for the rest of Stetson’s life. I’ve seen people comment on how this most likely guarantees him a membership at Augusta National. He’ll be throwing out first pitches. He’ll most likely end up with a massive car dealership across the state. Mall autograph signings are guaranteed for life. A statue. Never buying a drink ever again in Jacksonville for the Cocktail Party.
Let’s face it, the NFL isn’t in Stetson’s future, but nobody is ever taking away that national championship and the benefits that come along with that, including the free booze that Internet experts think he sucked down this morning before someone threw him in front of a GMA camera.
He clearly drank a whole keg last night 😅😅😅😅 https://t.co/EVvAjlMPaW

I’d recognize those eyes anywhere. Black out pass out around 3:15am, someone woke him up 10 minutes before this hit and he just stumbled to the chair and he’s got no idea what’s going on https://t.co/ZL1dtGJfOv

I'm not sure Stetson would believe there's a brighter light in the universe than the one that hit him in the face this morning. https://t.co/ONMXEmktUh
