Report: UGA athletes among the least illiterate
ajc - about 3 years
UGA graduate and former quarterback Aaron Murray demonstrates elite writing skills. Murray is headed to the NFL draft in 2014. (AJC file photo) The football season may have been a letdown, but UGA athletes are still winners. A report by CNN indicates Georgia athletes are among the least illiterate. In the story titled “Some college athletes play like adults, read like 5th-graders,” the Atlanta-based news network says 7 to 15 percent of players admitted to some of the best universities in the nation can’t read at the college level. CNN asked for SAT and ACT scores from 37 universities; only 21 responded, including the University of Georgia. At UGA, 7.5% of athletes during a 6-year period (2007-12) scored less than 400 on the reading portion of the SAT or 16 on the ACT reading test, the level considered “college literate.” Twenty-two of the 7.5% were on the football team. One was on the men’s basketball team and one was on the women’s basketball team. Information for athlet ...

Iron Bowl Preview: Alabama-Auburn Rivalry Has Deep Roots
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
The previous four winners of the Iron Bowl -- the annual slugfest between Alabama and Auburn -- have gone on to win the BCS National Championship. And yes, this is a slugfest, both on and off the field. The schools are separated by just 160 miles, and remember, it was a malicious 'Bama fan that poisoned the iconic War Eagle tree. This year's tilt features top-ranked and undefeated Alabama, along with its Heisman hopeful quarterback AJ McCarron. Nick Saban's crew is going for his third straight title and fourth in five years. A classic drop-back passer with an NFL arm, McCarron has thrown a mere five interceptions this season. He's not flashy, but the guy is a proven winner who doesn't shy away from pressure moments. And, whenever the passing game turns sour -- however rare that may be -- 'Bama has a dominant running back to hand the ball to in super sophomore T.J. Yeldon. All in all, the Tide average a staggering 40 points per game. For the Tigers, look out for a high-paced offe ...

AJ McCarron Thinking Iron Bowl Win, Not Heisman Trophy
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — AJ McCarron has risen to the occasion on big stages with Southeastern Conference and national titles on the line. Now, top-ranked Alabama's quarterback steps onto one with something more personal potentially at stake, too: His Heisman Trophy chances. McCarron can bolster his case if he leads the Crimson Tide past rival No. 4 Auburn on Saturday and looks good doing it. The player whose gaudiest numbers are the wins and championships he has collected remains adamant that he's all about winning games, not statues. But a win would secure him an even grander showcase in the SEC championship game for another BCS title game trip. McCarron insists the Heisman isn't on his mind. "I ain't worried about that," he said. "If it comes, it comes. If not, I just want us to win." Wide receiver Kevin Norwood said he's never heard his friend and quarterback talk about the Heisman. Norwood thinks McCarron is worthy, even if his statistics aren't jump-off-the-page terrif ...

Auburn Hail Mary Touchdown Stuns Georgia After Near Interception In Final Minute (VIDEO)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — With Auburn's title hopes hanging in the balance, the ball deflected into the air and into Ricardo Louis' hands. The result was a stunningly improbable touchdown that rescued the seventh-ranked Tigers' equally unlikely championship chances. Louis scored on a deflected 73-yard pass from Nick Marshall on fourth and 18 with 25 seconds left to give Auburn a 43-38 victory over No. 25 Georgia on Saturday night. "I couldn't believe it," Louis said. "It just landed right into my hands. I saw it once it got over my shoulder. It got tipped, I lost track of it ... but when I looked over my shoulders, it was right there." The Tigers (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) had blown a 27-7 lead but pulled out one more huge play to continue the biggest turnaround in major college football. From 3-9 last year, they can win the SEC West with a victory in two weeks against No. 1 Alabama. Marshall heaved the ball downfield with two defenders around Louis. It bounced off safety Jos ...

Heisman Watch: Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel, Tajh Boyd Lead Trophy Race Into Week 8
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
By Dave Miller, National Football Post Seven weeks of the 2013 college football season are in the books, and the race for the Heisman Trophy remains as competitive as ever. Here is how the National Football Post stacks up its Heisman Watch heading into Week 8. Oregon QB Marcus Mariota: The dual-threat Ducks signal-caller finally played a full game after so many blowouts this season, throwing for 366 yards and three touchdowns and adding 88 more yards and a score on the ground in the team's 45-24 win over Washington to extend its winning streak to 10 over the Huskies. Mariota, who completed 24 of 31 passes and topped 300 yards passing for the sixth time in his college career, is playing nearly flawless football this season and seemingly drove the Ducks down the field whenever the Huskies tried to steal the momentum with a score of their own. The redshirt sophomore should remain in the spotlight all year long, so a trip to New York is well within Mariota's reach if he continues on th ...

Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Georgia's Aaron Murray is the new Southeastern Conference record holder for career yards passing. Murray's 24-yard completion to Chris Conley on a fourth-and-4 play from the Tennessee 39-yard line in in the second quarter Saturday gave him 11,538 career yards passing. Murray capped the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Rantavious Wooten that increased his career total to 11,542 and gave the sixth-ranked Bulldogs a 17-3 lead. The SEC record was previously held by David Greene, who threw for 11,528 yards while at Georgia from 2001-04. Murray, a senior, also is within reach of the SEC record for career touchdown passes. Murray's two touchdown passes in the first 25 minutes of Saturday's game improved his career total to 108. Danny Wuerffel threw 114 touchdown passes at Florida from 1993-96.

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Aaron Murray
    FORTIES
  • 2014
    For the remainder of Murray's senior season, Georgia would have to manage without their star player. Murray's Bulldogs finished out the year at 8-5 while defeating Georgia Tech (41-34) in their regular season finale and losing to Nebraska (24-19) in the Gator Bowl on January 1, 2014. Murray was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 5th round (163rd overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.
    More Details Hide Details On September 3, 2016, Murray was released by the Chiefs. On September 4, 2016, Murray was signed by the Arizona Cardinals to their practice squad. On September 12, 2016, Murray was released by the Cardinals. On September 13, 2016, Murray was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to their practice squad. Murray's older brother, Josh, was on the show The Bachelorette in 2014 and eventually became the winner. Josh was a baseball player drafted out of high school to the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system where he was eventually released shortly after rookie ball due to psychiatric complications. After his short stint in minor league baseball, he attended the University of Georgia where he walked on the football team playing two games as a safety for the Bulldogs.
    He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
    More Details Hide Details He played college football at Georgia. Murray was raised in Florida, the son of Lauren and Dennis Murray. His father is Catholic and his mother is Jewish. He graduated from Plant High School after transferring from Jesuit High School in Tampa, Florida. In 2008 the Plant High Panthers won 14 games in a row after a close opening day loss. The Panthers continued to the state championship finally defeating Tallahassee Lincoln 34-14 en route to their 2nd title in three years. As a junior, Murray completed 201-of-329 passing attempts for 4,012 yards and 51 touchdowns with seven interceptions. He had a longest pass play of 78 yards that season.

  • 2013
    On November 23, 2013 Murray tore his ACL in the left knee on a non-contact play during Senior Night for Georgia at Sanford Stadium.
    More Details Hide Details Prior to the ACL injury, Murray surpassed 3,000 yards for the season. This makes him the first SEC quarterback to pass for 3,000 yards per year in four seasons. Murray's highlights for the 2013 season listed above were notable accomplishments. Here's a recap of his senior season with the Georgia Bulldogs who wound up at 8-5 while being unranked by the AP Top 25 Poll. Murray's ACL injury on November 23 was a microcosm of UGA's difficult injury-filled season as a score of key players were sidelined with injuries. Georgia's season began on August 31 with Murray's 5th ranked 'Dogs being surprised in an upset loss to 8th ranked Clemson on the road, 38-35. Murray finished the contest 20-of-29 passing for 323 yards while scoring on a 1-yard TD run with 1:19 left to play. Murray responded to Georgia's opening season loss to Clemson by taking charge in the 2nd half of Georgia's 41-30 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks on September 7. He had another fine day throwing the football (17 of 23 passes for 309 yards with 4 TDs). Murray's final touchdown came in the form of an 85-yard toss to wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley early in the 4th quarter. He also received help from running back Todd Gurley who ran for 132 yards on 30 carries.
    With injuries taking a toll, Georgia ran into trouble later in the year—which saw its hopes of making the SEC title game fade away. Next, Georgia took on eventual SEC East Champion Missouri at home on October 12, 2013.
    More Details Hide Details Murray opened up the scoring with a 7-yard TD pass to Douglas, but it was Missouri that took the upper hand in the first half by taking a 28-10 lead going into the locker-room. The Missouri Tigers held on to win, 41-26. Murray passed for 290 yards (25 completions in 45 attempts) in the losing cause with 3 TDs. Soon, Georgia faced Vanderbilt in Nashville on October 19. Murray's two TD passes and Shaquille Wiggins' 39 yard interception return gave Georgia a 27-14 lead going into the final stanza of play, but it was Vanderbilt's comeback ability that enabled the Commodores to win 31-27. Murray minus his backfield struggled in this road matchup as he finished with only 114 yards off 16-of-28 passing attempts. Conley was Murray's top receiver as he finished with 5 catches for 40 yards in the losing cause.
    Finally, Georgia reached a defining moment in the season of 2013 when the Bulldogs had to travel to Knoxville, Tennessee for a matchup with the Vols on October 5.
    More Details Hide Details The Bulldogs lost several players to injury in this overtime thriller as RB Keith Marshall (5 rushed, 33 yards against UT) tore an ACL that put him out for the year. Other notables among the injury list included Murray's receivers Michael Bennett and Justin Scott-Wesley. Even the team's punter, Collin Barber, was knocked out of this contest. Murray—without his backfield (Todd Gurley had been lost the week before with an ankle injury to LSU)—took this game into his own hands as he raced 57 yards off a scramble early in the 3rd quarter which a play later set up his teammate Brendan Douglas' 3-yard TD run giving the Bulldogs a 24-17 lead with 14:55 left in the 3rd quarter. Soon afterwards, Georgia defeated Tennessee 34-31 in overtime off a Marshall Morgan 42 yard FG. Murray finished the contest going 19-of-35 for 196 passing yards and three TDs.
  • 2012
    And then against Alabama in the 2012 SEC Championship Game, he broke Peyton Manning's career touchdown record which was 89.
    More Details Hide Details Murray now has 95 touchdown passes for his career at UGA. On November 9, at the homecoming game vs. Appalachian State, Aaron Murray completed touchdown passes 114 and 115 to tie and break the all-time SEC career passing touchdown record previously set by Florida quarterback Danny Wuerffel in 1996. On October 19, he completed a 7-yard pass to Arthur Lynch and passed Tim Tebow to become the SEC's all-time leading passer.
    Those athletes stayed in school as this enabled Murray and Georgia to make another run in the SEC East as the Bulldogs made it back to the Georgia Dome again, but this time to face coach Nick Saban's powerful, then-ranked #2 Alabama on December 1, 2012.
    More Details Hide Details Right off the bat, Georgia raced to a quick 4-0 start in September off blowout wins over Buffalo, Missouri, Florida Atlantic, and Vanderbilt. After crushing Buffalo, 45-23, Georgia blasted Missouri on the road the very next week, 41-20. Murray started off slowly but finished with 258 yards passing and three TDs against Buffalo on September 1, 2012. His accuracy was much better in the following week at Columbia, Mo. (22-of-35 passing for 242 yards with three TDs) as senior wide receiver Marlon Brown pitched in by catching a game high 9 receptions for 124 yards to overwhelm the Missouri Tigers—who were brand new to the SEC Conference that year. Two home wins on the 15th and 22 September against over-matched Florida Atlantic and Vanderbilt gave Murray more opportunities to shine as he did—completing 14 of his 19 passes for 342 yards and 2 TDs against FAU (Georgia won this game, 56-20) and connecting on 18-of-24 passing attempts, good for 250 yards and two more scores versus Vandy. The Georgia Bulldogs surprised Vanderbilt, 48-3, in Athens, Ga. as coach James Franklin's Commodores would still go on to finish a successful campaign at 9-4.
  • 2011
    Aaron Murray's redshirt sophomore year started off slowly. Either by design, with a very tough early season schedule, or due to the chemistry of a lot of young talent needing to mesh and gel, Georgia began 2011 with an 0-2 start with losses to nationally ranked No. 5 Boise State in the Georgia Dome and nationally ranked No. 12 South Carolina at home.
    More Details Hide Details The 35-21 loss to the Broncos on September 4 came against a senior-laden Boise State team, while the 45-42 loss to the Gamecocks a week later saw Murray play one of his finest games as a Bulldog, going 19-for-29 passing for 248 yards and four touchdowns. However, three UGA turnovers and a 68-yard fake punt touchdown run by South Carolina's 6-2, 276-pound senior Melvin Ingram proved to be too much for Georgia to overcome. With the whole season in jeopardy, the magic began for the University of Georgia as coach Richt's football team went on a dominating march (during the regular season) through the college football landscape. Murray was largely responsible for the surge as the Bulldogs won 10 games in a row that lifted them to a 10-2 record, a No. 12 ranking nationally by the AP College Football Poll, and a first-place ranking in the SEC East—which placed UGA in the SEC Championship Game on December 3.
  • 2010
    With star player wide receiver A.J. Green receiving a 4-game suspension from the NCAA for selling his jersey during the spring, Murray faced the difficulty of leading Georgia into the 2010 campaign without his No. 1 receiver.
    More Details Hide Details The end result was a brutal 1-4 start as Georgia dropped four consecutive games starting with a 17-6 road loss on September 4 with South Carolina and ending with an October 2 road trip to Colorado as their linebacker B.J. Beatty forced a fumble late in the fourth quarter that resulted in a Buffaloes' 29-27 victory. However, the Tampa, Florida native was resilient as Georgia reeled off five wins in their next six contests, including routs of Tennessee (41-14), Vanderbilt (43-0), and Kentucky (44-31). On October 9, Murray threw the ball with precision going 17-of-25 for 266 yards with two touchdowns and also rushed for 41 yards and two more touchdowns against the Volunteers. On October 16, Murray exploited Vanderbilt's secondary, going 15-of-24 passing for 287 yards with two touchdowns. He also rushed six times for 36 yards against the Commodores. At Lexington, Kentucky on October 23, Murray was 9-of-12, passing the ball for 113 yards as teammate Washaun Ealey ran 28 times for 157 yards, and scored five touchdowns as Georgia built a 44-25 lead in the fourth quarter.

  • 2008
    Murray verbally committed to attend the University of Georgia in April 2008.
    More Details Hide Details Murray redshirted during his freshman season because of an injured shoulder he suffered that fall as Georgia managed an 8-5 record and went 4-4 in the SEC under the leadership of senior quarterback Joe Cox. With fellow freshman quarterback Zach Mettenberger being dismissed from the team for rules violations, transferring to Butler Community College, and eventually to LSU, Aaron Murray took over as Georgia's starting quarterback as a redshirt freshman.
