Georgia QB Aaron Murray: near the top of 2014 Draft Class

aaron-murray

The Georgia offense will be led by QB Aaron Murray, who rates near the top of the 2014 NFL Draft class. What holds him back is his height; the same problem AJ McCarron and Johnny Manziel have. Still I think Manziel won’t be hled back too much by that. And I’d rate Manziel ahead of Murray, McCarron behind Murray among the SEC signal callers.

Other blue chip QB prospects in 2014 include Tajh Boyd of Clemson and Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville.

With the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue dropping yesterday, Kate Upton is the talk of the country right now. So she’s getting plenty of attention. But do you know Kate Upton sister? Laura Upton is an accomplished Georgia Bulldogs equestrian.

I don’t much about that sport other than what I learned about dressage and Mitt Romney’s wife’s dressage horse Refalca. However Laura Upton must be good at her sport because she’s on the equestrian team at an SEC school. Then when you look at her record, she’s among the elite in her sport.

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

A year after making the NCAA Tournament, the Georgia Bulldogs took a step back in Mark Fox’s third season in Athens.  The outlook isn’t much better this season for the Dawgs who lack any real firepower on the offensive end.
