Florida's Tyler Murphy Says He Wants To "Emulate" Alabama's A.J. McCarron

Not because of Katherine Webb.

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron has been negatively labeled as a "game manager" by many college football analysts and fans. Florida's Tyler Murphy would gladly take the title.

Murphy, who was promoted to the Gators' starting quarterback role after Jeff Driskel went down with a season-ending leg injury, told reporters today that he "emulates" McCarron. He cited the Tide star's two BCS championships.

While McCarron has been praised for his play this season, more credit is usually given to the Tide's offensive line, their running backs and head coach Nick Saban. It's great to see one SEC quarterback acknowledge another's success.
