Aaron Murray is my new hero

After reading these quotes from an interview Aaron Murray did with David Hale, about why he chose Georgia over schools in Florida, how can you not like this guy already?

"It was huge just because the perception is that if you're in Florida, you're going to go to one of those three schools Miami, Florida or Florida State. It wasn't tough for me because I knew where I wanted to go, but for the people down there, everyone's a Florida fan, so they were all like, 'You need to go to Florida, blah, blah, blah, this and that.' In the end, I was going to go where I felt more comfortable. I fell in love with Georgia."

"So I went to Georgia, and the next week I went to Florida. I left there and I called my mom and I'm like, 'I'm ready to commit.' She was like, 'Oh, so you're ready to commit to Florida?' I was like, 'No, I'm ready to commit to Georgia.' Right then, when I left Florida with Georgia on my mind, I knew that it was the place for me. "

The game against Florida should be a lot of fun over the next few years. Do you think Florida fans will hate him as much as they love Tebow?

The short answer is yes. The Tebowites are going to need something to do after 2009 with their time.

Murray was on Fox 5 News last night and was quoted as saying, "I hate Florida." So the answer is yes, I do have room for another bromance for someone who hates Florida like I do.

I hate Florida more than anyone you know. Do you love me more?
