Aaron Murray breaks leg – Dawg Nation collectively groans

Plant HS (Fla) QB Aaron Murray broke his leg last night in the first half of Plant City’s game against Hillsborough.  The Tampa Tribune is reporting he will likely have surgery in the next couple of days.

This is a serious injury, but much less so in my mind than a knee injury.  My thoughts and prayers are for a safe and successful recovery.  However, the question many will ask in the coming months is “What does this do to the QB situation, especially if Stafford leaves for the NFL?”

I don’t even pretend to know about medicine (there was this one time at Allen’s, but I digress).  This type of injury is one that will take at least six months to get back to going hard at it.  Garrison Hearst took took two years to come back from a similar injury, due to complications.  Does this affect Murray’s decision to enroll in January?  Does this almost automatically put a redshirt on him?  If Stafford sticks around (right now, I think he will), either Murray or Mettenberger gets redshirted anyway (it is possible both get it), especially with Joe Cox, Logan Gray (if he is still a QB), and Jonathan deLaureal on the roster.

This might seem premature (and it probably is), but just something I was thinking about this morning.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
