Georgia could have two players wearing jersey No. 11 starting on Saturday against Clemson.
Quarterback Aaron Murray will start for the 42nd time in his Georgia career. Safety Connor Norman is likely to start for the third time after getting the nod last year against Buffalo and Missouri.
Later when my camera wasn’t running, Murray found it amusing that reporters were asking him about the contacts he was wearing.
“Oh God, is this going to be some huge article now?” he asked. “`Aaron Murray wearing contacts.’ God. Holy Scnhikes.”
He says he doesn’t need to wear them in games.
“Probably not right away,” Murray said. “I don’t know. Definitely not this week. I’m not wearing them during the game. I’m not used to them yet.”
He’s worn the contacts for a couple of weeks off the field. He wore glasses last year in class.
“It’s fine,” he said. “It really is just in class if I’m sitting in the back and the small words on the screen get me in a little trouble. Really my eyes aren’t bad at all. It’s just more for classroom stuff.”
Yes, Murray said he can see safeties on the field.
And he’ll be able to see the guys that wear orange on Saturday.
“I can see colors,” he said. “No excuses because of eyes. That’s for sure.”
