I was watching BCS Countdown last night and the questioned was posed by Rece Davis who should go to New York besides Jamesis Winston. Neither Jessie Palmer or David Pollack had an answer. AJ McCarron had a brutal loss Saturday, Jordan Lynch has played nobody at Northern Illinois, and Bryce Petty is out after his embarrassing performance against Oklahoma State last week.
I have a suggestion….Aaron Murray. The Charleston Post and Courier’s Gene Sapakoff brought it my attention in his campaign for Murray as the Heisman winner this morning. Now I am a “innocent until proven guilty” guy so Jamesis Winston should win the award unless he is charged in the sexual assault investigation. Look at Murray’s resume. He is the only quarterback in the nation with two wins over BCS top 15 teams (South Carolina and LSU). He is also thrown for 1,345 yards, 10 TDS, 2 Ints, and 4 rushing touchdowns against Auburn, South Carolina, Clemson, and LSU. Murray did not play as well against Missouri but who would with three of your four starting receivers out.
According to The Heisman Trust mission statement “the Heisman trophy recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perserverance, and hard work.”
With all the adversity that UGA has been through this season does any player capture the spirit of this word other than Aaron Murray? Send him to New York!
