… Before Murray’s 2011 season, only four quarterbacks — Tim Couch, Peyton Manning, Danny Wuerffel and Andre Woodson — threw for more than 3,000 yards and 35 touchdowns in a [SEC] single season. Those were also the only quarterbacks to throw for 35 touchdowns in a season before Murray. Murray — if he stays healthy and remains at Georgia for all four years of his eligibility — is on pace to break Wuerffel’s SEC touchdown record of 114.
We can bitch all we want about Murray’s shortcomings, but that’s some damned impressive company he’s keeping, especially when you consider that Georgia’s receiving corps was a big question mark going into the season. Somebody deserves a little credit for what’s going on there.
