Georgia’s offensive linemen decided about three weeks ago to not talk to reporters.
Not a word from the players in the trenches who didn’t allow a sack on Aaron Murray against LSU or North Texas after giving up four at Clemson and two against South Carolina.
Murray is fine with his protectors avoiding the media.
“Whatever they’re doing is working, so I’m sorry if y’all can get an interview,” the fifth-year senior said.
Murray began taking his offensive linemen out to lunch or for ice cream on Sundays last season in return for keeping his jersey clean.
“The ice cream and the food I’ve been getting them — my wallet’s mad,” Murray said with a laugh.
After Georgia’s win over South Carolina, Murray, the offensive linemen and the running backs went to lunch:
Murray on Richt’s emotions after LSU win
Murray said he was “a little bit” surprised at coach Mark Richt getting emotional after Georgia’s win over LSU and shedding tears in a post-game interview in CBS.
“People always think of Coach Richt, he’s standing on the sideline, same face. But Coach shows a lot of emotion,” Murray said. “He shows a lot of emotion in the locker room, on the practice field. Sometimes he might now show it on the camera, so everyone thinks he’s like this stiff guy who doesn’t say anything. But he’s really a very emotional guy. Loves Georgia, loves this team. He shows it all the time, so it’s great to see that he’s just so passionate about it, just as passionate as we are about Georgia, this season and this team.”
