Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray is no stranger to teams like LSU and of course Florida, having played in the SEC. The all-time leading passer in SEC history had some strong words for the Tigers-Gators matchup this weekend.
Murray was a guest on ESPNU’s channel on SiriusXM radio. When asked about the matchup between the LSU Tigers and Florida Gators, Murray was quick to paint a picture of just how bad this matchup could be. “I expect Florida to run up and down the field on this team. I just see a lot of uninspired football”, Murray said.
He has not shied away from the fact that he loves the Tigers quarterback Max Johnson. Jokingly bringing up the one-time transfer rules to get him to Athens to play quarterback. When discussing the southpaw, Murray called him a “one-man band.” The Tigers have been average at best in the trenches on both sides of the ball. With no running game and now being without their star receiver, it will be up to Johnson to play the role of hero.
I think Murray speaks to the level of disinterest among the fanbase for this game against the Gators. Given the talk before the season with Florida’s Ventrell Miller essentially guaranteeing a win would spark some sort of fire for this upcoming game. Miller won’t play as he was lost for the season, but the fact that neither team is competing for their divisions has taken some of the luster from this rivalry game.
On a Saturday morning where these teams kick it off at 11:00 a.m. local time, there is no level of anticipation for this game. Given that oddsmakers put this as a double-digit margin, tells you that he could be dead on and it could get ugly this weekend for the Tigers and head coach Ed Orgeron.
