Share Your Memories of Larry Munson

The legendary voice of Georgia football died Sunday night at his home in Athens at the age of 89.

Larry Munson, whose legendary calls of University of Georgia football success echoed in the ears of the Bulldog Nation for four decades, died Sunday night in Athens.

Munson, 89, died at his home with complications from pneumonia, his son Michael told the University of Georgia athletics website. Funeral arrangements for Munson had not been determined as of Sunday night.

The beloved broadcaster was the “Voice of the Bulldogs” from 1966 to 2008, during which his passion for the Red-and-Black created some of the more memorable radio calls in college football history.

Some of the most memorable:
“Run Lindsay … Lindsay Scott, Lindsay Scott, Lindsay Scott” (1980 vs. Florida); “Again you guys, hunker down!” and  “Look at the sugar falling out of the sky.” (1982 vs. Auburn); “Oh, you Hershel Walker!” (1980 vs. Tennessee); “We just stepped on their face with a hobnailed boot and broke their nose.” (2001 vs. Tennessee).

Munson told Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Furman Bisher in 2005 that the “Lindsay Scott” and “Hobnailed Boot” were his favorite calls.

Not only did he repeat Lindsey Scott's name throughout the long run down the field, but he fell off his chair...you could still hear him yelling, but his voice was further away from the microphone.

Morgot, then he apologized to the listeners. Classic Munson

And after that, with all the chair talk, he started talking about how all the owners of rental property in St. Simons and the surrounding area had better beware, because there was "gonna be some property damage done tonight." :)

There was nothing like UGA football on Saturdays. We didn't even bother with TV, we just cranked up all the radios. We HAD to hear Munson! Great times! "Look at the sugar falling from the sky"!
