    Murphy actually had quite a few blocks as a Gator. They just weren't the "block it into the third row and then glower at your opponent" kind of blocks.

    First game seems to have been the exception and not the rule for Murph...

    Erik was 2nd on the team this past season with 25 blocked shots. Pat was 1st with 58. Both are pretty good numbers.

    And a lot stronger. Thus the 10 fouls.

    It sounds like Eric had a dreadful first game and then looked very good after that. The reports of his demise are greatly exaggerated.

    Wouldn't you say the thread title was spot on?

    Lol, just to clarify, I'm a HUGE fan of Murph and think I missed watching at most 3 or 4 games in his whole career here. That was just a little tongue-in-cheek comment :devil:
