"Oh Lord, Here He Comes!"
Before the season started, most people thought starting a freshman QB would be what kept the Dawgs from having a good season. While the Dawgs have definitely been having a horrible season, the QB has been far from the problem. In fact, he's been friggin' awesome.
"In six games, Murray has thrown 10 touchdown passes and only three interceptions and has rushed for four touchdowns, tying D.J. Shockley’s 2005 mark for most rushing touchdowns by a Georgia quarterback in a season under coach Mark Richt.
“I’ll tell you, this quarterback is something special,” Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said on his coaches’ show. “He’s got a strong arm. He was very fast and then having A.J. Green in there really provides a dimension that causes problems.”
Murray has the best touchdown-to-interception ratio (3.33) of any quarterback in the SEC and the best ratio in his first six starts of any quarterback Richt has coached at Georgia.
Murray’s 61.8 completion percentage trails only David Greene’s 63.6 percent."
Against Tennessee last week, Aaron Murray started the scoring for the Dawgs when he scrambled for a 35-yard touchdown and took advantage of a downfield block from receiver Tavarres King.
"Murray can scoot," King said. "I ran my route, and I looked back and saw Aaron starting to run. I thought, ‘Oh Lord, here he comes.’ I turned around started driving my guy towards the hedges. Luckily Aaron’s got some wheels on him."
Murray would finish the day 17 of 25 for 266 yards and 2 touchdowns along with running the ball 7 times for 41 yards and 2 more touchdowns. Damn Good Dawg. Gooo DAWGS!! SIC EM!! WOOF WOOF WOOF!!!
