End of an era

Hadn't really had a chance to process Larry Munson's retirement, but I can say that is was a long time coming. While Munson had begun to slow down in recent years, his playcalling skills had really diminished this season. In fact, I was forced to turn off the radio and listen to the TV broadcast during the Central Michigan game because it was getting rather confusing.

Which is a shame since he's arguably one of the greatest play-by-play announcers of all-time and a legend in Georgia athletics. Folks have been calling in to the radio shows offering their favorite Munson moments, and one that I haven't heard yet that is my personal favorite is his call of the Bulldogs' 37-17 win over Florida in 1997 that ended the streak (the first one!).
