Why He’s Due for a Letdown
After beginning the season with high Heisman hopes and BCS title aspirations, quarterback Aaron Murray must just settle for a solid senior campaign and a long shot at an SEC title.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
To his credit though, the Bulldogs have been ravaged with injuries. It’s cost Murray a couple of his top receivers along with the team’s leading rusher Todd Gurley.
It’s certainly shown in his recent play, as he’s failed to top 300 and complete at least 60 percent of his passes in four consecutive games. In fact, in five conference games, Murray has averaged just 241.4 yards per game on 58.8 percent passing.
Don’t expect the slump to stop against the Gators’ vaunted secondary.
Through seven games, the unit ranks No. 5 against the pass, giving up just 172.4 yards per game through the air. Furthermore, Florida has conceded an FBS-low four passing touchdowns all year.
Not to mention, only one quarterback has topped 160 yards against the unit.
I wouldn’t bet on Murray being the second.
