The aspirations were high for the Georgia Bulldogs coming into the season. After coming literally within seconds of beating Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and earning themselves a shot at the national championship, of course the tremendous expectations would be there.

What also made a lot of people give the Bulldogs the nod this year was the fact that QB Aaron Murray decided to bypass the NFL Draft and return this season to pursue that title that eluded he and his squad last year. Considered a Heisman favorite as well, everything seemed perfect.

Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out that way. Injuries, especially on the offensive side of the ball, have left Murray by his lonesome for the most part and the Dawgs now sit at 4-3 on the year, with very, very slim hopes of returning to Atlanta to play for the SEC Title.

So, naturally, a lot of people would wonder if Murray regrets coming back now since things haven’t really turned out in the team’s favor.

Well, Murray says no, he doesn’t regret coming back to Athens.

“Obviously I came back to try and give ourselves a shot to win a championship. It didn’t happen. So what?,” Murray said, according to redandblack.com. “Let’s move on. Let’s continue working hard and having fun.”
