I don't have the cache on this board to be the one to reminisce and hypothesize, but I gotta think the big fella would have LOVED the Kirby Era and be excited (I can't say optimistic) about our beloved Dawgs' future.

    Great story OBD, and you're obviously a talented writer. Good thread too. I loved Larry and his voice still stirs my heart and gets my adrenalin going. Hopefully more folks will share their Munson stories on here.

    Thanks AD! I guess the bye week is the only time the rest of the Dawgs aren't Munsoning 😎

    I read this one in an article about Larry after his death ...... “ Ok Get the picture “ .... we were playing Ole Miss in the 70s over there in a thunderstorm and heavy rain for most of the game , back then weather didn’t suspend play

    During the 3rd Q , Larry say well, LORAN says he’s done for the night , going in out of the rain , but me thinks he’s going to a local cemetery and look up a dead man named John Daniel

    LoL d....nm wish I had heard this ....I would have fell out of my chair 😂

    1978 Tech-Ga game (29-28 comeback):

    Larry, “Now there’s no sense going away because you KNOW it’s not gonna end like THIS!”

    A Munson Masterpiece was 1978 in Lexington. UGA drove down the field and kicked a late field goal (Rex Robinson). Exciting but far from uncommon. Munson made it sound like Victory in Europe was on the line.
