Interesting backstory to Marlon Brown’s two TD catches last week:
… Brown’s two touchdowns, for 27 and 75 yards, came on the same play. It also happened to be a play that quarterback Aaron Murray had only become comfortable calling that week.
“I didn’t not like the play, I just wasn’t used to the concept of it yet,” Murray said. “It’s a pretty complex play. We talked about it and I finally got the grasp of it and felt comfortable with it. So I said, ‘Let’s do it’ to coach (Mike) Bobo and it worked. He said, ‘Yeah, that works pretty good, doesn’t it?’ ”
Brown reaped the benefits with a pair of scores and had a more down-to-earth opinion on whether they should run the play.
“(Murray) was talking about firing the play and I was like, no,” Brown said.
“It works in practice so let’s keep doing it. Then last Thursday ( Murray ) was saying, ‘I kind of like that play so let’s try it.’”
Both scores looked like they came off busted coverages, so whatever Bobo came up with, Vandy’s defense wasn’t ready for it. Hey, Mike, if you’ve got something like that lined up for Florida, make sure Murray gets it figured out in practice this week, okay?
