Will anybody be surprised in the slightest if Georgia is tied or behind in the second half on Saturday? And will anybody be surprised if Aaron Murray does something about it?

Joining ESPN Gameday this week… Junior.
I’d rather listen to Condi Rice talk about college football.
Aaron Murray sure likes playing between the hedges.
In games at Sanford Stadium, Murray is 20-2, with the only losses coming to South Carolina (2011) and Arkansas (2010). In those 22 home games, he’s thrown 63 touchdown passes to just 11 interceptions, five of which came during his sophomore season. Here’s Murray’s year-by-year home splits:
2013 … 3-0 record, 67.8 completion percentage, 11 touchdowns, 2 INTs, 203.0 rating, 338.3 passing yards per game
2012 … 7-0, 71.4 percent, 19 TDs, 2 INTs, 209.6 rating, 295.0 yards per game
2011 … 5-1, 65.3 percent, 19 TDs, 5 INTs, 168.8 rating, 203.3 yards per game
2010 … 5-1, 66.2 percent, 14 TDs, 2 INTs, 177.9 rating, 244.2 yards per game
Gotta like his odds this Saturday, even with a banged-up receiving corps.
Marshall Morgan’s noticed a little change in attitude from his teammates.
“After the LSU game, I really noticed that just the teammates, they would compliment me more,” said Morgan, who hit on 24-, 55- and 38-yard attempts against LSU. “They have a lot more faith in me. Before the game, they are a lot more positive towards me. … After the Tennessee kick, now I think they really have gained a lot more confidence.”
They sound a lot like us, in other words.
Classic “other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?” quote from John Lilly about his punting unit:
“We’ve made more impact plays this year on the punt team than we have in the six years I’ve been here,” said Lilly, whose unit was tops in the nation in net punting in 2009 at 41.95. “We’ve forced two turnovers, we got a successful fake and then you give up the big plays and it is disappointing. If you can throw out the two catastrophes, we’re up in the top five in America in net punting.”
Well, yay for that.
Georgia currently ranks 45th in net punting, in case you were wondering.
