Whisper in his ear

Mark Richt claims not to have known what his quarterback was doing over spring break, but Mike Bobo knew what Murray was up to:

“No, it doesn’t bother me,” Bobo said. “He’s been to the Manning Camp, too. I think anytime you can go somewhere and get one thing or two things that might help you be more accurate or help you with footwork, it’s good. It’s the same in coaching. You’re always looking for one more thing that might be the difference in getting a first down or winning a game. I think it’s a good thing.”

The only qualification Bobo had for Murray was “don’t be messing with your release.” Murray obliged.

“We didn’t just throw my old form out the window,” he said. “It was really about tweaking little things here and there and working on a couple of things.”

If you read the piece in its entirety, what comes across is that Aaron Murray wants to have a plan to deal with Jadeveon Clowney when his offensive line doesn’t.  Who can blame him for that?

    What intrigues me is AM dropping weight might look worse to the NFL while improving his chances at a MNC. Success at the two levels doesn’t correlate, just look at Heisman winners NFL success. The best player in CF maybe has a 50-50 shot at success next level.
    Murray is a leader and a winner. He wants it now. He didn’t come back to ‘improve his draft stock’, he came back bc he likes UGA and wants to win.

  2. What fresh hell is this?

    At this level of football it is surprising to me that CMR was completely out of the loop re Murray’s spring break workouts and, Bobo, his position coach, was mostly out of the loop and claimed to only be concerned with not changing his release. Earlier articles about the workouts mentioned changing Murray’s body turn/torque and driving with the elbow. Is it really possible to make those changes without effecting his release?

    This is probably a much ado about nothing, but I can’t help wondering if this had been Saban/Nussmeier and A J McCarron, would there not have been a whole different level of communication and coordination?

      “….would there not have been a whole different level of communication and coordination?”
      Probably……. not that there is anything right about that.

        Is it wrong that the thing I enjoyed most about that video is the avant-garde spelling of “alternate” in the video title? If so, I don’t want to be right.

          Alternant is a behind-the-guard contrarian from the planet Nant, which took the place of Pluto somewhere beyond Uranus. They like to be spanked. It is all part of Nick’s interplanetary recruiting plan: First, Australia… Tomorrow, the Milky Way.

            Thought it was a new species of ant. Thought Saban was imitating an Eucharitid wasp.

            • AthensHomerDawg

              OK for all the guys and gals that didn’t attend classes on Cojones’ side of campus; Eucharitids are wasps and are specialized parasitoids of ants, which means each wasp species is only parasitic of one genus of ant. The Saban wasp is parasitic of a new species of ants –the McCarron ant. I’m not sure what the Saban wasp used as a host prior to the emergence of the new species of McCarron ant…….. Conjones? You want to fill us in?

                Adam Ant because of his Napoleonic headgear?

                • Cojones

                  The Eucharitid has better headgear than Adam. It has a rhinestone jacket, a thin waist and a boomin’ butt. I call it “the J-Low Wasp”.

                    Sure, a J-Lo has a big ass but can she splice the mainbrace and shiver her timbers like an Adam Ant?

    I have a plan to deal with Jadeaveon Clowney, but it involves putting a dead hooker in the trunk of his car this summer.

    • Dog in Fla

      That’s a plan. Not only would it give South Carolina points in the Fulmer Cup, it’s already been adapted into a screenplay that does not implicate Craig James

    “Aaron Murray wants to have a plan to deal with Jadeveon Clowney”

    AM’s best plan for dealing with Clowney should involve the Donald bringing back the USFL and signing Clowney in mid-August to one year contract with the New Jersey Generals for a cool 10 million in CASH.

    If all of this means that Aaron is going to run more, I can’t wait until Fall Season. Hope to see it in the Spring Game.
