The clock just will not stop: Thinking of Munson

Thinking about Munson on a Sunday afternoon.

My favorite Munson call.

The man recorded a eulogy for himself.

Double Caprices point to pimptitude

I apologize for the soft focus here from my camera phone, but those are identical 1990ish Chevrolet Caprice Classics parked together at a house near my neighborhood. And I thought: You just know at least one badass lives there.

Richard Samuel as the punisher

We got offensive line problems, and Isaiah Crowell's departure, more than anything else this summer, just reminds me of them. And as much as I'm looking forward to seeing our freshman get in the mix, for me, hope's name is Richard Samuel. Says Mike Bobo:
“I know after the spring game he was running the ball and had some success running and he was like, ‘Don’t forget about me at tailback.’ He was punishing people and getting yards tough at the end of the game. He has a role for that.
I'm looking forward to more of this in 2012:

The song that kept getting us invited back to parties

Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

Apropos of nothing further, that's beautiful.

Good on ya, C-WASH

Now these are the words of a grown man and a leader:
To: The Dawg Nation I have gotten word that my post on Facebook has gotten a lot of buzz over the past week or so and there are a few things that I would like to say: Although everyone is entitled to their own opinions (even all the people who had negative things to say), I am at fault because no matter how I felt I should never have let those feeling get control of my better judgment. I should have kept it to myself and let the entire situation die down. My biggest regret about the whole thing is that it has cause so much disruption amongst the team. I forgot for a minute that I am here to get an education and play football and that pretty much is the extent of my responsibilities. I am not here to complain about the fanatics and for that I do apologize. I am a leader and I care about the guys that I lead. Believe me, I do know and understand that my teammate made a very bad decision and had to face the consequences, but I rather support him than be negative toward him. I rather help him succeed because I saw all the work that he had put in since spring and I was looking forward to seeing him play! The bottom line is that he has moved on and I’m happy he has found a place to continue his career, but the best thing for UGA football is to let this go and move forward positively. I would like to ask all the fans and supporters out there to help us with this by letting it go also. We have to continue to work hard and do our very best to get to Miami like we planned and I want all of you along for the ride. #beblesseddawgnation
