ATHENS, Ga — If there was one bright spot during Georgia’s 6-7 2010 season, it was the stellar performance of freshman quarterback Aaron Murray.
Many thought that this position would be a major question mark heading into the season, but Murray did a great job of answering the call.
In his first year at the helm of the Georgia offense, Murray shined, and completed one of the best seasons in the history of Georgia football.
Murray finished the 2010 campaign with 3,216 total yards and 3,049 passing yards, which was good enough to rank second all-time amongst SEC freshman.
He also finished with a passer rating of 154.48, which ranks second all-time for quarterbacks in the history of Georgia football. The only person to post a higher number is Georgia offensive coordinator and quarterback’s coach, Mike Bobo.
If those numbers don’t impress you, then Murray’s 28 touchdowns and 8 interceptions should do the job. Murray threw no more than three touchdowns in any one game, but he would do that six times.
With that being said, Murray will go without a very important piece that helped him succeed in 2010, A.J. Green—that really goes without saying.
If Murray was a question mark in 2010, then who he will throw to is one of the major question marks in 2011. A topic that I will address later. (more…)
