By the way, after last weekend's game against Georgia Southern, Murray now leads the nation in passer rating. Not too shabby, huh? I wonder where Hutson Mason would be in the rankings.
Many fans have given Murray flak, including myself, but after he's done at UGA, he will statistically end up being one of the top QBs in SEC and UGA history. If--and this is a big if--UGA wins the National Championship this season, which would involve beating our biggest rivals and three top-two teams, it will be hard to argue that Murray is not one of the best UGA and SEC QBs ever.
Right now, Murray has 87 TDS, which places him fifth all time in passing TDs behind only Tebow (88), Leak (88), P. Manning (89) and Wuerffel (114). If he returns next season, which he likely will, and stays healthy, he'll pass Wuerffel. Oh, he'd also be the top yardage leader in SEC history, passing our own David Greene...all of this while playing on a somewhat conservative team that doesn't run up the score and likes to run the ball.
I know; I know. Murray has looked mediocre in beating the Gators (twice) and has not shown up in "big" games. Luckily for UGA and Murray, he has three big games left this season. (Yes, considering everything, the GT game is a very big game.)
I wonder how long it will take for UGA fans to fully embrace DGD Aaron Murray...
This is another great storyline in this magical season. Go Dawgs! (I'll spare y'all the love for Bobo talk, but he kinda needs credit, too.)
