Please let M. Obama say something about college football players being bribed with ice cream. Pretty please with ice cream and a cherry on top!
Aaron Murray knows how to get the attention of an offensive lineman — offer him food. And that’s just what Georgia’s quarterback did after being sacked five times in the Bulldogs’ first two games.
Before facing Florida Atlantic in Week Three, Murray promised his protectors that he’d take them out for ice cream if they kept his jersey clean. He’s only been sacked once in two games since and he blamed that one on himself for holding onto the ball too long.
Left tackle Kenarious Gates — all 318 pounds of him — had this to say on the matter:
“It’s motivated us. We’re playing for each other, and you always have that ice cream in the back of your head.”
Murray said last week’s ice cream trip went on his mom’s credit card to the tune of 50 or 60 dollars. Which means UGA fans can start worrying about an NCAA investigation… now. (Kidding.)
