    45 years ago (1977) we opened our season against Oregon and had a pre-game tribute to Joe Roth…..the Heisman nominee from U.Cal who died from cancer only a few months after playing UGA the previous season. Eventhough he didn’t play for Oregon I remember how moved they were that we’d remember a great player from their conference. Hopefully, we will do something similar in memory of Spencer this year. Go Dawgs!!!

    Terrible news. My deepest condolences for the Duck Nation. Wishing you peace, comfort, and lots of love during this difficult time.

    May this young man rest in peace. 🙏

    So young, it breaks my heart to even think of how his family and friends are feeling. God Bless all of them and help them through this. Spencer was just reaching his prime. How quickly everything can change. I will think of him in September

    One of a team's worst nightmares....such a tragic loss of young talent and life. My deepest sympathies to his parents and the team. UGA should do something to honor his memory during the game. I am certain Coach Smart and Coach Lanning will honor him.

    Terrible news. Prayers for his family and the entire Duck Nation. I'm sure all of Dawg Nation feels the same.

    Bless him, Dear Lord.

    Wonderful idea gentlemen! That would truly be a very considerate, thoughtful and respectful gesture and show of sportsmanship that would mean so much to the young man’s family and his teammates!

    Truly hopes this happens!
