Not a day goes by that former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray isn’t asked about “The Pass.”
… But Murray’s pass was tipped and the ball fell into the arms of Georgia receiver Chris Conley at the Alabama five-yard line. The clock kept running. Georgia was out of timeouts.
“It was the longest eight or nine seconds in my life,” said Murray. “There had to be some way to get that clock stopped. But there wasn’t.”
Murray says he still gets questions about two plays from his career:
“The Prayer at Jordan-Hare (a miracle touchdown pass for Auburn in 2013) and the pass against Alabama,” said Murray. “I will never escape those plays.”
Murray said he will be doing an event with former Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, the starter on the 2017 team that lost to Alabama for the national championship.
“I guess they put us together because we’ve both been stabbed in the heart by Alabama,” said Murray.
There are demons waiting to be exorcised Monday night. No pressure, guys.
