Blog: Bobo raising the bar for Murray

If preseason practices are any indication, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray could be more on target this season.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said today that Murray is completing about 14 percent more of his passes this camp compared to a year ago.

The redshirt junior has worked on improving his footwork this offseason.

“He’s doing a good job of not being on his toes anymore, finishing every throw on balance,” Bobo said. “There’s times we’ve got to throw off balance, but his accuracy has improved.”

Murray completed 59.1 percent of his passes last season, down from 61.1 percent in 2010.

Bobo had set a target goal of Murray completing 62 percent of his passes, but he’s raised that to 65 percent this year.

“He’s a fourth-year guy in the system,” Bobo said. “I just want to set the standard a little bit higher than 62. I think we’re capable of reaching that. To be the elite quarterback that he wants to be, we’ve got to complete passes at a higher percentage.”

Murray completed 12 of 17 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in Georgia’s first preseason scrimmage on Wednesday.

That 70.6 completion percentage, of course, came against the Bulldogs’ second-team defense.
