Aaron Murray Still Has One Goal He Can Accomplish This Season

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray could have entered the draft last season. He would have been picked up by someone. Depending on who he might even be playing already. Playing or not he would at least be making an NFL-sized paycheck---which would have been pretty good no matter when he was picked.

Instead he came back for his senior season with hopes of leading his team to the Promise Land--- an SEC title and a shot at the last BCS one. A Heisman trophy was a possibility too. All three are pretty much impossible now, there is still one goal that he can accomplish.

“I’m still playing football. I’m still out there with my buddies, having fun, competing,” Murray said. “Obviously I came back to try to give ourselves a chance to win a championship, but it didn’t happen. So what...I’ve been having fun all year, working my tail off, and I think everyone on this team is doing the same thing.”

He can still beat Florida one more time.

Rivalry games can make or break a season. Take the Texas Longhorns--they could lose out and still be satisfied since they beat Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry; something the seniors had yet to do.

The Floirda/Georgia rivalry is one of the more storied ones in college football as much for the party as the game itself. Known as the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party it's pretty safe to say that there will be little pain felt by anyone over Rivalry weekend and cab drivers will be working overtime.

Murray has done well against the Gators and would not mind finishing his college career off by dominating the Bull Dogs rival:

“Aaron would love to be 3-1 as a starting quarterback (against Florida),” Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch said.

Should he do so he'll enter rare territory. Since the rivalry began in 1904 (or 1915 depending on who you ask) there have only been two other Georgia quarterbacks that beat Florida three times--and that is something any good football player would love to hang his hat on.
