Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post No surprise

Wednesday January 7, 2009

Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford today announced their intention to enter the NFL Draft. Each had nothing but good things to say about their Georgia experience.

“It’s been an amazing run here,” said Stafford. “I’ve had an amazing time at Georgia. There is no better place for me to go to school. The way the coaches and fans treat you makes it feel like home. There is no better place in the country. This program has done a lot for me. I’m glad I got a chance to wear the “G” on my helmet and represent it the best I could.”

Moreno added: “Coming to Athens has been like a second home to me. It’s been wonderful. The coaches have been there for me with open arms. We have great fans. It was like a dream come true coming here and playing in front of 92,000. Running out of the stadium and having them cheer for us really means a lot. They are great fans and the best in the world.”

Want to hear an incredible stat? Given Georgia’s rich history of tailbacks, it took Moreno only two years to become Georgia’s #4 all-time leading rusher with 2,734 yards. Stafford also re-wrote the record book this year. His 25 touchdown passes sets the Georgia record for a season, and his 3,499 yards of total offense in 2008 is the highest ever for a season at Georgia.
