Georgia’s Aaron Murray says he was close to going to NFL last year
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray joined the show to talk about their tough loss to Clemson and to look ahead to the rest of the season.
Dan asked Murray how tough it is to overcome a tough loss. “It’s tough,” Murray said. “Especially a game like that. But the great thing is having a game like South Carolina coming up this weekend.”
Murray talked about facing Gamecocks star Jadeveon Clowney. “He’s an extremely talented pass-rusher,” Murray said. “Physically, there aren’t many guys like that walking the street.” Murray said that you have to chip Clowney with a back or extra linemen and you have to focus a lot to slow him down.
Murray said that he feels that since they’re 0-0 in the SEC so all the Bulldogs’ goals are still possible.
Dan asked how close he was to going to the NFL last year. “It was close,” Murray said. “The deciding factor was the SEC Championship Game and how close we were to winning a national championship.”
Murray said he felt bad for what Johnny Manziel had to go through. “It’s hard going to places in Georgia without having to sign something or take a picture,” Murray said. “I can’t imagine what it’s like for [Manziel].”
Murray talked about meeting Jeff Gordon before the Clemson game. Gordon gave a speech to the team, and Murray said since they lost, Gordon will not be asked back.
