I’m reading this piece on the young quarterbacks facing off in the Liberty Bowl when out jumps this admission:
… Georgia coach Mark Richt said he would have played quarterback Aaron Murray during his first year in college as well, but Murray was sidelined with tendonitis.
First time I’ve heard him put that so baldly. I wonder when Richt would have played him. Hopefully not in the fourth quarter of the Florida game, although Murray couldn’t have made matters any worse.
Seriously, had that happened, I wonder how far the coaches would have gone with it (start against Tech after Cox’ meltdown in the second half against Kentucky?), and what kind of message it would have sent to the other QBs. We’ll never know, but that goes to show how little the G-Day performances meant to Richt and Bobo.
