Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray finished the 2011 season in some good company after tossing a program record 35 touchdown passes in one season. Murray now is heading into his junior year and third straight year as a starter with the team, and it's looking like he might just be able to supplant himself within the top ranks of Georgia lore.
Fran Tarkenton, Buck Belue, Eric Zeier, Mike Bobo, Quincy Carter, David Greene, D.J. Shockley and Matthew Stafford never had such a passing performance during their tenures between the hedges as Murray did last year.
So where does Murray's legacy go from here? Well, the statistical machine that he was last fall plans on returning to 2012 even more mature, cognizant and physically prepared to continue success—and cut down on the 14 interception total that might have been a major factor in Georgia's 33-30 loss in the Outback Bowl against Michigan State.
Georgia heads into 2012 with head coach Mark Richt and defensive coordinator Todd Grantham under new contracts, and expectations for this team are as high as they've been since the 2008 preseason when Georgia was ranked No. 1 in the country by the Associated Press.
Murray is a big reason why this team has so many expectations and the success of this team definitely is on his shoulders.
Here's an analysis of the entire Georgia quarterback position as we get closer to summer camp.
