Georgia Football: Former Bulldog to Capture Heart(s) on The Bachelorette Reality Show
My few readers know I like Georgia football. My few friends know I am also sucker for The Bachelor and its spin-offs.
A strong case can be made for The Bachelor as America’s third-best individual sport. 1. Golf, 2. Tennis, 3. Bachelor. You guys could talk me into swapping 1 and 2, but 3 is staying.
And as some of you know, I take to the Tweets fairly aggressively during Bachelor season as a way to cope with an absence of football. I was light on it this year as the season was mind=numbingly unentertaining, but I hit it hard.

I’ve even talked with a certain member of the Georgia coaching staff about the show.
To address the elephant in the room: Yes, the contestant is Aaron Murray’s older brother. But let’s not sell the guy short. After all, when Josh Murray was drafted in the second round of the MLB Amateur Draft right out of high school in 2002, Aaron was known as “Josh’s little brother.” He’s his own parson dagnabbit!
Furthermore, Josh is a damn good Dawg in his own right. Josh had a breakout moment in 2010 when he went absolutely nuts on the sideline following a series of Auburn late hits on his kid brother.
That kind of passion for family (displayed at the 2:00 mark) is going to make him a front-runner in this competition. And as Reality Steve points out:
And you’ll never guess who’s one of the biggest UGA fans on the planet? You guessed it…Andi’s dad.
Another advantage for Josh: he has impeccable tailgating taste, as seen below with Chad “The Former Intern” Floyd and myself prior to the Clemson game.
So good luck, Josh. And thanks for giving me a reason to blog about this show with some semblance of legitimacy. Go set some Bachelorette records, show her that SEC Speed and make Bulldog nation proud.
That’s all I got/
