    Players who get themselves suspended before a huge game like that can't really be counted on anyway.

    I'm scared that in addition to having us so very overmatched, they'll break out the black jerseys again. That'll seal our doom right there.

    AJ is certainly over rated when compared to Aaron Murray.

    Look at these stellar statistics against the two top ten teams Aaron faced this season

    Against South Carolina 11-31, 109 yards, 0 TD's, 1 interception

    Against Florida 12-24, 150 yards, 1TD, 3 interceptions

    That's 23-55 for 269 yards, 1TD and 4 interceptions in their biggest games this season. Hard to top that

    Buck's highest rating is below A.J.'s lowest rating. Look at those TD/Int ratios as well, and passing yardage to boot. I've gotta admit, it looks like Buck should know a thing or two about being overrated.
    In defense of Buck Belue, he played in a different era. I'd be very surprised to hear him say Barrett is overrated as he usually is just kidding around about that sort of thing. I've met him and talked Georgia and Bama football with him before. He's really a class act. You have to remember, he won with their only real national championship team back in 80. You have to understand that he's going to be a homer -- not to be a jerk but believe me Buck bleeds black and red. If you've listened to him over the years he has been very complimentary towards Bama. I have no animosity towards him. Yeah but I do admit, it will be good to beat those Dawgs tomorrow RTR!!!!

    Re: Atlanta radio host and former UGA QB Buck Belue: "Barrett Jones overrated"

    I guess it's easy for Buck Belue (who?) to say that being a QB and all. All he did was stand behind linemen, never actually on the line.

    And how exactly does he come to this conclusion?

    Well, I think Murray's big game performances pretty much has determined what our game plan will be on defense. Lots of blitzes.
    I think it's probably obvious to Coach Saban and staff that if you pressure him and can get into his head early that he really struggles against good teams. That's not a direct knock at Murray, most QB's have the same problem. But in all honesty if he has to make quick decisions he has tended to panic and turn the ball over. Against ranked teams since 2010 he has thrown 19 TD's but has also thrown 14 interceptions. Those turnovers are huge in big game scenarios.
