I have a working theory. Aaron Murray is a very good player who is going to be great because he obsesses about his mistakes.
“I usually lay in bed at night thinking about every single loss and what plays here and there I could have made,” Murray said Wednesday. “If you go back and look at the games we’ve lost, most of it is due to our errors. It’s tough at night reflecting on the plays we could have had this year that could have changed our season.”
Or as Richt admitted, “When we did turn it over, there were some very inopportune times for those to happen.”
Georgia has committed 14 turnovers this season after having 28 a year ago, but Ealey’s fumbles prevented the Bulldogs from tying the games in Columbia and Starkville. King’s fumble allowed Colorado to escape in what would be the final victory in the Dan Hawkins era, but there is no doubt which miscue Murray wants back most.
“Definitely the pick from Florida,” he said. “The way we were able to come back in that game and put it into overtime, we really felt like we had a shot to win.”
Maybe next year he can fall asleep thinking better thoughts.
