Maybe Logan Booker was on to something – Seth Emerson got three inquiries in his most recent Mailbag about whether a benching of Murray was in the cards so that the staff could get Hutson Mason ready for next season. Skip over how shitty it would be to treat somebody who came back for his senior season and is holding up his end of the deal so far like that. Forget about the fact that there’s no guarantee Mason is the 2014 starter at the position (heresy for some of you, I know). Here’s what I’m curious about: how many examples you can think of when a productive collegiate starting quarterback has taken a seat mid-season like that?
I guess if the 2014 season doesn’t click, we can talk about benching Mason to get the next quarterback ready.
