While Georgia may have gone out with a victory over Kentucky in its final home game of the 2013 season, it was a bittersweet afternoon for the Bulldogs. UGA quarterback Aaron Murray, who has been a starter for all four of his years in Athens, tore his ACL near the end of the first half of the game and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Murray will need surgery to repair his left knee before he presumably moves onto an NFL career.
This morning, Murray took to Twitter to thank Georgia fans for supporting him through the years. He also vowed to come back "stronger than ever."
It's hard not to feel for Murray here. He made the decision to come back to Georgia for his senior season to have a chance to play for a BCS national title, only to suffer a major injury near the end of the season that could affect his pro career. Hopefully he recovers quickly and finds success at the next level.
