This post at A Bulldog in Exile, comparing Aaron Murray’s and John Brantley’s credentials, inspired a hypothetical. Presume for a moment that Murray succumbed to the charm of going to his state school and became a Gator instead of a Dawg. It’s likely that he’d be backing Brantley up this season.
So here are my questions: were that the case, how many pundits do you think would be promoting the idea as the year progressed that Murray the backup, feasting on opponents at garbage time, would be good enough to start for “x” number of SEC teams? And how large a number would that “x” be?
I’ll hang up and listen to your answers.
