The legend of Georgia football quarterback Stetson Bennett IV is growing by the nanosecond.
While most people try to get hyped up before playing in a football game, Georgia football living legend Stetson Bennett IV tends to go with a much mellow approach in his pre-game routine.
Though many of his other teammates may get fired up for the game on Saturday by listening to hardcore metal, gangsta rap or whatever gets them ready to get ready, Bennett prefers to listen to the late 2000s classic of “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat. It helps “The Mailman” get in the zone to go quarterback the reigning national champions. He listened to this tune in Indianapolis, by the way…
As Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald pointed out, yes, this is the song that goes, “It starts in my toes and I crinkle my nose. Wherever it goes, I always know.”
Here is the late 2000s smash hit by Callait, if you want to understand why Bennett digs the song.
The biggest question is if this was his ringtone back when Bennett still rocked the old flip phone.

I think was this does is bring into question, what would your football hype song be? Surely, some combination of Audioslave or ’90s gangsta rap would get me there, but then again, I don’t play quarterback. For a linebacker, receiver, defensive end or running back, this combination of music would work out just fine. As for a quarterback, you just gotta find your zen, man, above all else.
It is like being a starting pitcher, the mellower, the better. You are going to have to handle failure better than the rest of your teammates if you want to win in the end. Some quarterbacks go the more spiritual route with their pre-game music, which is totally understandable. Others may want to go with easy-listening pop music like Bennett seems to have found when it comes to “Bubbly.”
But for real though, there have to be quarterbacks out there who listen to yacht rock pre-game, right? They walk into the locker room wearing a boat captain’s hat because, well, they are the captain. From “Brandy” to “Sailing” to anything Michael McDonald ever wrote, this would be an incredible playlist to not only get ready for a gridiron battle, but to take the boat out or cook out.
If listening to “Bubbly” takes Bennett to the right place mentally, I’m all for another national title.
