Aaron Murray took Georgia offensive linemen out for ice cream
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray looked like a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate in a 45-41 shootout victory over LSU on Saturday. The senior threw for four touchdowns and ran for another. Much of his success is owed to the stellar play of the Bulldogs offensive line.
Murray was hardly touched against the Tigers. He was not sacked once, and he clearly appreciated the protection he got. We know this because Murray took his offensive linemen out for ice cream on Monday to thank them.

Apparently this is not the first time Murray has shown his appreciation for the guys in the trenches. Junior guard Watts Dantzler tweeted last week that Murray had taken the offensive line out to dinner.
What a guy. We have heard of NFL running backs buying their offensive linemen gifts for opening up big running lanes, but it seems more rare for quarterbacks to show that kind of appreciation in college. Ice cream is certainly a great way to keep 300-pound men motivated to block.
