Georgia’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes is now going to be honing his skills in a new line of work, albeit one close to the football field. Former Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray confirmed today that he will be in the broadcast booth for CBS Sports this coming season.
Following a collegiate career which saw him smash many school and conference records (he still holds the SEC marks for passing yards and touchdowns), Murray was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he was never able to supplant Alex Smith as the team’s quarterback, was eventually released, then bounced around as a free agent without ever catching on anywhere else.
Murray seems like the kind of affable former player who should be at ease in the booth. He’s also a well-known student of the game and a fiend for preparation, both of which will serve him well.
Remember when Ethan told us the Egg Bowl was going to keep getting weirder? Well that didn’t take long.
Steven Godfrey of our very own SB Nation is reporting Leo Lewis will be requested to appear before the Committee on Infractions when they meet to decide the penalties to levy against the Ole Miss football program. So is this really bad news for Leo Lewis and the Mississippi State Bulldogs?
Don’t get me wrong, I would rather not have Leo Lewis appear before the NCAA for any reason, and I can’t imagine any college coach would want such a thing to happen. This is why I have never bought into the “Dan Mullen arranged for this to happen” conspiracy theories. Yes, Leo Lewis was granted limited immunity, but the idea of a player for Mississippi State testifying before the NCAA is not something that makes me happy.
