But we didn't. Two SEC QBs are going to New York. Both had similar numbers, but didn't have to deal with the injuries to key offensive skill positions that Murray did. Also, an SEC running back, who is doing so on the back of a (very impressive) one game showing is going. And all of their schools did something to promote those players, particularly Auburn, which litterally blanked the voters with emails in the three days after the SEC Championship Game.
UGA? Nah. Not our scene. And it is absolutely terrible that we didn't do it.
The money shot? I'll let Bernie rant:
And yet it was some South Carolina sports writer from Charleston that had to beat the drum for Aaron Murray. Embarrassing.By the by, read the rest of his post. It is a perfectly worded expose on why UGA athletics takes the attitude it does, and why there is no downside to the campaign in the first place.
