Georgia QB Stetson Bennett claps back at cell phone criticism: ‘I controlled the aux and played banger’

This past weekend, Georgia fans took to the streets of Athens, Georgia to celebrate their second straight college football championship, complete with the parade, the pep rally… the full nine yards.

After a vintage 65-7 butt they dealt to the TCU Horned Frogs in last week’s championship game, Kirby Smart and these guys proved they’re hands down the best in college football right now, and they’re not going anywhere, anytime soon.

Much to the dismay of Alabama coach Nick Saban…

Despite this, Stetson Bennett still seems to have upset a few people, including Atlanta-area radio and television personality Steak Shapiro (that can’t be his real name?).

Steak cracked down on Stetson for appearing to have been on his cell phone too much during the parade and thus showing no appreciation to fans and the media.

“Stetson Bennett needed someone to tell him to put his damn phone down during a parade and show some kindness and appreciation to the fans that were sitting in that stadium.

You want to crush the media you think is mean to you, do a press conference.”

This is what the video that triggered the criticism could look like:

I mean, not a great look from Bennett who seems to be at odds with the media right now, even the Georgia media.

Georgia was league No. 1 pretty much all season, no doubt No. 1 in the playoffs, so I’m not entirely sure where that “silence doubters” attitude came from.

Where has this horde of doubters been all season? I haven’t heard much about it…

Even his speech was all about:

But hey, if the plan was to convince yourself that nobody thought they had a shot at the chip this year to motivate them, then congratulations, it worked.

Still, I don’t think it was a shot at the fans at all.

Stetson fired back at Steak with a reply:

He then provided another explanation:

“Mr Med Rare: A phone belonged to me. A phone was connected to the bluetooth. Mine had the playlists. The other had the aux. I appreciate your concern about my image/intents/loyalties/commitments (as well as your willingness to reach out to me to confirm them), you have obviously given some motives that I might have thought through quite thoroughly. However, to help fill in some gaps, can I give you the “Insider” bullet?

Parades are a symbol of celebration, and while last year celebrated that championship, this year’s parade was a celebration of a very special time (for me! Of course, there’s a chance I’m wrong).

And while as a team we value fans, as individuals we value our teammates. You know, the one we’ve broken bones and torn ligaments and bled for years and cried and changed and grown with and laughed with.

To help you fill those damn holes: team (group) celebrates with fans (group) in a big parade. Teammate (individual) celebrates with teammate (individual) in a small personal car. Guess which one I am. Teammate, yes! So, to end it nice and neat, I controlled the aux and played bangers so Sed and Chris and I could have a great time on our last drive to Sanford. That’s pretty much the gist.

Ps: I don’t like you very much Mr. Steak ‘and shake’ Shapiro. But to be fair, I’m not a fan of your work either.”


Steak replied that he had left Stetson for the past two years and that while he didn’t like Stetson’s parade demeanor, he was still a big fan. Georgia QB Stetson Bennett claps back at cell phone criticism: ‘I controlled the aux and played banger’
