Georgia won't give Murray the campaign treatment

07:12 AM ET 07.12 | Launching Heisman Trophy campaign sites and social media strategies are nothing new. This isn't unusual, and schools usually get creative. Two years ago Baylor sent media members Robert Griffin III trading cards. Last year Kansas State sent out Collin Klein band-aids, and Texas A&M created a web site for eventual winner Johnny Manziel. So what should we expect from Georgia to promote Aaron Murray, or even Todd Gurley? Not much. Such an all-out campaign isn't really deemed necessary, says Claude Felton, UGA's associate athletics director for communications. "Today is a different age," ... [Felton said] in an e-mail on Thursday. "The most important things in my view are name recognition, being on television, and playing well when you are on TV."

Do not underestimate the Bulldog Nation. They don't need sanction from UGA to do their thing.

Heisman Trophy campaign websites, social media strategies, trading cards, posters ... the Heisman is a popularity contest.

I have always liked Murray, I think he is a very solid QB that will do good in the NFL.

An aside: How many of you expect Brittany to resemble Paula Dean as she ages?

Too soft.

Heroics rather than hype should determine the Heisman.

She's a Southern girl who likes Southern comfort food. Brittany's on her way to the matron look.

Check out the dirty hit from Bama just before halftime in the SECCG and rethink your statement. I'm sure you would've got up from that too though.

How about when nick fairly ripped a gash in his chin and Murray didn't miss a beat.

He's not soft. He is inside of his own head a little too much though.

In the future, you should refer to said individual as "Barner who shall not be named."
