Murray vs. Garcia

My stories are filed, and I'm prepared to go home to my cable television.

(Which was finally installed, but without channel descriptions. Supposedly they're coming tomorrow to fix it. Considering the horror stories a lot of you posted, I guess I got off lucky.)

First, though, I wanted to leave you all with one final note, which you'll hear a lot more about a month from now. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and South Carolina's Stephen Garcia are from rival high schools in Tampa, Fla., and Murray said they've met and spoken a couple times.

“I’m just excited to play at South Carolina. It’s pretty cool that it’s against another Tampa quarterback, so it should be pretty exciting,” Murray said.

Murray was a sophomore at Plant High School in Tampa when Garcia was a senior at rival Jefferson High. But the two didn't square off then: Robert Mavre (now at Purdue, after starting his career at Miami) opposed Garcia.

"It was the big Mavre-Garcia game," Murray said.

This year it'll be the big Murray-Garcia game. Murray is being thrown into the fire as a redshirt freshman. Garcia was too, though later in the season, started every game last year and enters this year as one of the SEC’s most experienced signal callers.

“There’s a lot of hype about him this year. I’m excited to see what he can do," Murray said. "He definitely matured over the past couple years, on the field, and continually got better, so it’s looking like he should have a good season.”
