The Georgia Bulldogs' offense struggled in their loss to South Carolina and a big reason why was quarterback Aaron Murray.

For the first time in six games this season, Murray failed tho throw for at least 242 yards. He completed just 35.5 percent of his passes, finishing 11-of-31 for 109 yards. Murray also failed to throw a touchdown for the first time this season. After the game, Murray didn't mince words about the Bulldogs' performance.

"We got our (tails) handed to us," Murray said, according to Dog Bytes. "It really wasn't a good game all around."

The Bulldogs were only able to gain 224 total yards, less than half of the 536 yards per game they were averaging heading into the game. Georgia converted 7-of-16 third down situations with Murray saying the Bulldogs hurt themselves by being in third and long situations.

"I think we killed ourselves with too many third-and-longs," Murray said. "When you're in third and long and they know you're going to throw the ball, those ends can just gear up."
