ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Mark Richt is asking Aaron Murray to do more in his second season as Georgia's starting quarterback.
The coach is asking Murray to tweak his play in such subtle ways as to avoid sacks by not holding the ball as long. Richt also wants Murray to make another change: He's asking the third-year sophomore to lead the team.
It's a major step up for Murray, who says he was focused only on his own play one year ago as he started every game as a redshirt freshman. He says he's ready for the added responsibility of taking a leadership role as Georgia prepares for its Sept. 3 opener against Boise State.
