With Georgia one win away from playing for a national championship, quarterback Aaron Murray has suddenly imposed a media blackout.
The school says Murray met with coach Mark Richt and got permission to be relieved from his media responsibilities leading up to the Southeastern Conference championship game between the third-ranked Bulldogs and No. 2 Alabama. The winner will advance to face top-ranked Notre Dame for the BCS title.
Murray has always been one of Georgia's most accessible players, usually meeting with the media on Tuesdays and after games. But he gave a hint that approach would change when he didn't hang around following last week's win over Georgia Tech.
Murray is the nation's top-rated passer and the first quarterback in SEC history with three straight 3,000-yard seasons through the air.

Georgia Bulldogs LB Alec Ogletree had a vicious tackle of Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets WR Robert Godhigh during Saturday's college football game in Athens that turned out to be more of a combination body slam and pile driver.
It happened in the second quarter as Godhigh caught a 4-yard pass, and probably wished he hadn't after Ogletree picked him up and slammed him...
Aaron Murray has opted to remain incognito this week as his No. 3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs prepare to face-off against Alabama this weekend. However, his absence from the microphone hasn’t kept tongues from wagging about the overwhelming challenges he’ll face playing against the Crimson Tides’ vaunted defense. While there will likely be no shortage of opinions on what aspect...
A lot will be made of Rambo’s statement that Georgia is “more talented than Alabama”…however, if you listen to the whole interview, Rambo is hardly dissing the Tide. Either way, it makes for good media fodder, I guess. But you can guarantee there won’t be too many more interviews granted after this one. Either way, give it a quick listen.
Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree is one of the Bulldogs’ better tacklers, and he proved that with his WWE-style takedown of Georgia Tech wide receiver Robert Godhigh on Saturday. The expression “tossed like a rag doll” is one of the most overused in football, but Ogletree did just that with Godhigh after the receiver caught a pass over the middle with less than two minutes...

He will not get invited even if he goes bonkers against the Crimson Tide, but he has more important things on the line.

If we have learned anything from the media this season, it is that Alabama has played one of the nation's toughest schedules while Georgia has played mostly FCS schools. Georgia has no business even being in a championship game with a school that plays as toughest schedule as Alabama, right?
