I’ve said it before, but I will say it again because by George, it bears repeating*:
We are witnessing something special with Aaron Murray.
Fans may want to complain about this or that. Punks might want to egg his house after a bad loss.
But the bottom line is this: Aaron Murray is one of the best QBs in the history of the SEC and could very well be argued that he is the best to ever play at UGA-behind David Greene. And, if UGA wins the SEC Championship this season, I think you have got to put Aaron in that conversation as best ever at UGA.
I pointed it out after the 2011 season and during the 2012 season. And I am going to point it out again before the 2013 season.
Barring an injury that causes Aaron to miss a significant amount of time, he will leave the SEC as the career leader in touchdowns and passing yards. Going into the season, he ranks 3rd in Passing Efficiency Rating, 10th in all time pass completion percentage…he won’t break those records but still impressive showings.
The young man’s name is going to be in all the record books.
Records are meant to be broken. Murray will have broken Greene’s record in 8.5 years. It won’t be long before someone comes along and breaks Murray’s. It will happen. It always happens.
But, quarterbacks like Murray are special. They don’t come around often. Enjoy him while we have him.
Let’s hope Murray can hoist a few special trophies above his head this season. He certainly deserves it, and it would cement his already outstanding legacy. It would at least get the attention of the national sports media.
Or they could always talk more about Johnny Football
*Also, and I know I’ve said this before, but am I the only one who is amused that UGA-a school known for Vince Dooley 3 yards and a cloud of dust, Herschel Walker and the Erk Russell Junkyard Dawg defenses, will have the top 3 passers in the history of the SEC in Murray, David Greene, and Eric Zier?
