Munson: ‘Yeah yeah yeah yeah!’

I remember when Larry Munson, who’d spent a season as part of the newly arrived Braves’ original broadcast team, first took over from Ed Thilenius as the voice of the Georgia Bulldogs. 

Even as a ninth grader, I was already a Bulldog traditionalist, and like many fans, I found the gravelly, staccato bark of Munson took some getting used to after the smooth, mellow tones of Thilenius.

I didn’t dislike Munson. In fact, I felt he’d been wronged when he got crowded out of the Braves booth by the tremendous ego of Milo the Mouth. Still, I remember feeling that Munson came across on his early UGA broadcasts as something of an outsider. 

For some reason, I recall the moment when Munson won me over and I finally considered him one of “us.” It was the 1968 game matching No. 5 Georgia with No. 12 Auburn for the SEC Championship. It wasn’t so much any specific call or turn of phrase; he just sounded so into the game, like it really mattered to him whether the Bulldogs won. From that time on, Munson was the man, as far as I was concerned.

By the late ’70s, fans had started quoting Munson calls, and then the Munson phenomenon really took off in the 1980s (”There goes Herschel!”) as we started getting audio and video compilations of his greatest moments. Eventually it reached the point where Munson became an icon even outside the Bulldog Nation. Hardly a week goes by during college football season that you don’t hear somebody on ESPN drop into a growl to imitate the great one.

Since it was announced this week that Munson is being inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame, it seemed like a good time to celebrate the Munson legacy. 

It’s easy to pick the three greatest Munson calls of all time; most fans have them memorized: “Run, Lindsay” from the 1980 Florida game (including the end bit about breaking “a metal steel chair” and his “Man is there gonna to be some property destroyed tonight!” warning; the whole extended “Hunker down” scenario culminating with “Look at the sugar falling out of the sky” from the 1982 Auburn game; and, probably the all-time favorite, from the 2001 win in Knoxville: “We just stepped on their face with a hobnail boot and broke their nose!”

I asked a bunch of Dawg fans about their favorite Munson calls other than those three, and the ones most often cited are from the 1980 Tennessee game, the 1975 Florida game and the 1978 Kentucky game.

The Tennessee play, of course, introduced Herschel Walker to the Bulldog Nation. It went like this:

“Tennessee leading 15 to 2, the crowd roaring against Georgia trying to make them drop it so they can’t hear. We hand it off to Herschel, there’s a hole, 5, 10, 12, he’s running over people! Oh, you Herschel Walker! My God almighty, he ran right through two men, Herschel ran right over two men, they had him dead away inside the 9. Herschel Walker went 16 yards, he drove right over those orange shirts, just driving and running with those big thighs. My God, a freshman!” 

The 1975 call of an 80-yard touchdown pass from Richard Appleby to Gene Washington, one of my favorites, was an early example of Munson’s penchant for completely off-the-wall analogies:

“Appleby, end around, he just stopped, planted his feet and threw it, and Washington caught it thinking of Montreal and the Olympics, and ran out of his shoes right down the middle 80 yards. Stadium rocking, stunned, the girders are bending now, look at the score.” 

And the 1978 call of a late Rex Robinson field goal that beat the Wildcats was Munson at his simplest and was notable for the fact he never actually said the kick was good:

“Sixteen to 14, Kentucky, with eight seconds! The stadium’s standing. Naw, some of ’em are upside down, but they’re trying to stand. It’s gonna be held just inside the 19. It’s set down, he puts it up, it looks good, watch it, watch it … yeah yeah yeah yeah! He kicked the whatchamacallit out of it!” 

Another early favorite of Andy Johnson fans is from the 1973 Georgia win over Tennessee:

“Georgia’s got a first down on the Tennessee 26, the stadium rocking, the stadium can’t believe it… Georgia is 8 and a half yards away, minute 17, minute 16, minute 15, second down on the 8 and a half. Andy’s gonna take it give it to Harrison …  Faked it! Andy Johnson! Touchdown Andy Johnson! Touchdown Andy Johnson! What a fake, they hit Harrison dead on the 9 and Andy bootlegged to the left and scored. My God Georgia beat Tennesee in Knoxville.”  

And then there’s another call of a famous kick, Kevin Butler’s 60-yarder to break a tie with Clemson at Sanford Stadium in 1984:

“So we’ll try to kick one 100,000 miles, we’re holding it on our own 49 and a half, gonna try to kick 60 yards plus a foot and a half, and Butler kicks a long one, Butler kicks a long one … Oh my God! Oh My God! … The stadium is worse than bonkers. Eleven seconds … I can’t believe what he did. This is ungodly!” 

Indeed. Great Munson memories. Any others that you’re particularly fond of?

Larry Munson is just as big as any other Bulldog. He is the man!!!! I loved his style and his voice. And you are right bilndog there will NEVER be another. As a younger DAWG I never have heard the call at the end of the Sugar Bowl victory over Notre Dame. Does anyone know where I can find that? I like the call against Tech in like 96, or 97 when Brooking was called for interference and UGA wins with a pass to Corey Allen in the end zone. “And our heart that was torn from our chest and bleeding we just picked it up and stuffed in back inside” Or something like that.

Thanks for the memories. For me it was Butler beating Clemson. I still remember driving down I-20 listening to the game. Unbelievable that after 25 years, I can still remember where I was for a football game…Munson was the best.

We can’t forget the memorable calls and phrases when the Dawgs are losing. You felt Munson’s pain when he said, “Lady Luck is just spittin’ on us,” “Hard waves of nausea roll over the stadium,” “Their huge, old guys are just beatin’ on our linemen. We’re just so young!” “Hunker down, you guys!” and “The clock just keeps movin’. We’ve only got 95 seconds and no timeouts left.”

The guy made me a fan when I was a kid. Thanks, Larry.

Seriously I would love to know where I can find that Notre Dame call. Or if there is a place where I can get some of his calls for cheap or free, 50-75 dollars is not to feasible to spend on the greatest calls right now.

Wow, what memories this brings back. My wife nor I went to UGA, but we have season tickets to both football and Women’s basketball and it was Munson that made us fans of the school.

I remember that kick by Robinson in 1978. My brother and I sat in my bed room and listened to that game. We had a special interest in Rex because we went to the same church that his mom and dad and family went to. WONDERFUL people!

I guess, for me, there are just so many ones that I remember. My grandmother ran a little flower shop that sat on Peachtree Road between the Peachtree Battle shopping center and the old Peach’s Records and Tapes. She was a bit of a Tech Fan because she had a lot of customers that were, but I was red and black all the way. I would work a lot of fall Saturday afternoons with Larry giving me “the picture” on the air.

I found something the other day that was a treat to hear again. I have a tape that I made that has most of the last drive of the 82 Auburn game. It is complete with the post game show (and I had forgotten that Larry use to ask the coach questions from the press box in one segment) and a Hix Green Buick ad where GM had just announced amazing finance rates of 11.2% on a new car!!! WOW, imagine that…. and if some in our government have their way we may see those rates again with the inflation that is coming… but I digress!!!

Anyway, on behalf of all of us folks that Munson made fans let me just say THANK YOU! Saturdays in the fall are still special to me and my family, and I have Munson to thank for that!!!! There will NEVER be another Larry!

Happy Friday and GO DAWGS!!!!!

There never will be another Munson! Regardless of whether or not you are a GA fan (although I can’t fathom being any other type) you just have to appreciate the gravely growl and colorful calling of the game. You didn’t have to be in the stadium or watch a televised coverage to know EXACTLY what was going on. Scott (Howard) does a good job, but he’ll never fill The Man’s shoes – Go Bulldawgs!

With Munson I always felt like he was calling the game just for me. I get chills when I hear some of his best calls. I remember as a teenager listening to Georgia games while cutting grass on an old snapper riding lawnmower and almost jumping off the thing when Georgia scored. I will always think of two things when I think of Georgia: Uga and Larry Munson.

Yeah, all of those Munson calls are awesome. My favorite is the 1980 Florida “Run Lindsay Run” game. He is the greatest announcer ever, in my opinion. I never liked Scott Howard, so when Larry left the mike, I quit listening.

I am, and always have been, a Tech fan. But I always listened to UGA on the radio just to listen to Munson. It was especially good to listen to him when UGA was losing. But he was great, no doubt about it. You felt his joy and his dejection.

Great calls on the Butler kick and Andy Johnson. In ‘78 or ‘79, Georgia had a long string of road games and comeback wins.During, I think, the Kentucky game in Lexington on a Saturday, as he called on the Dogs to “hun-ker down one more time,” he wondered aloud to the Georgia faithful,” How long…can we keep doing it…on the ROAD?”

Larry’s one of us…the Bulldog Faithful. I had season tickets for years, but when I quit going to road games, and started to listening to Larry again (since I’d been at the games during and after my years at UGA, I’d missed the radio since high school), I realized that I’d been missing out on years of Larry! He’s amazing. I miss hearing him call the games. In ways, listening to Larry was better than being at the game live!

Congratulations on the Hall of Fame honor, Larry…it’s well deserved. GO DAWGS!

I was at Clemson during the Herschel Walker/Danny Ford/Vince Dooley era. Clemson games started at 1:00 p.m. and I believe Georgia games often started at 1:30 p.m. My friends and I would leave Memorial Stadium and head back to the dorm room to listen to Munson call the last few minutes of the Georgia game. I remember “It’s a long, long, long Broadway punt” and “The big back goes for 6.” Other than maybe Woody Durham at UNC, no one was as good as Munson. The two saddest things to happen to college football (in my opinion) were the end of the Clemson-Georgia series and Munson retiring. Someone should bronze his voice.

“Well, the stadium just fell down, now they will have to rebuild this thing”, after the “Run lindsay Run” game in Jax!! And who can forget that day in Auburn,” Hey you guys, I hate to ask you again, but HUNKER DOWN one more time, followed by “They broke it up, they broke it up, they broke it up”. UGA broadcasts just not the same, but nothing is forever!

The Bulldog Nation has collectively pulled for Scott Howard because we all understand the enormous shoes he has to fill. As a younger dawg, I’ve heard my parents stories of the 1980 GA-FL game and subsequent Sugar Bowl along with numerous other games from the 70’s and 80’s. Larry’s calls give chillbumps every time we listen and see those games, even now. There are so many great games that were so meaningful to Georgia, the 2002 Auburn game has not been mentioned yet, I don’t think. Larry’s calls will live forever, and we only wish that he will too.

My dog is named “Munson,” by the way-

I was eleven years old when Munson broadcast his first GEORGIA game.It was a lot different back then.There were usually only one or two college games on tv each week and one of those was usually Notre Dame so all we had was radio and boy was it great.I remember listening to all the Georgia games each fall.Munson would paint the picture for us.We lived and died with every call.I didn’t attend my first GEORGIA game until I was 15.What a thrill.I remember the tracks,the old Texaco scoreboard with the bulldog holding the club with a nail,Poss’s bar-b-que sandwiches and Kelley’s YMCA pee wee’s playing before the game.It was all great and Munson was always there to paint the picture for us.We miss you Larry.

Everybody knows “hobnail boot” and “our heart that was torn out and bleeding, we picked it up and put it back inside”. Munson, however, made some vintage calls before he ever got to Georgia. In calling the finals of the Mideast Regional basketball finals in 1966 it was “Who could believe it, little Vanderbilt leads Mighty Michigan!!”

The best may have been, “This one’s going down to the wire, folks. Hang on. We’ve got Gish coming into the game. It’ll be Vandy’s ball out of bounds. Wait a minute. What’s this? Gish has lost his pants! Bob Polk has pulled off Lance Gish’s pants in front of six thousand screaming fans! The place is going crazy”

Most folks forget that 2 SEC schools claim him as their all-time best.

Loved listening to Larry when I couldn’t make it to a game or when the Dawgs were on the road. In the late 60’s, 70’s and 80’s there weren’t a lot of games on TV, but Munson really could “paint the picture” and make you feel the emotion of the game. Thanks for all the memories Larry!

Ed

I remember Munson calling Lindsay Scott’s 99-yard kickoff return at LSU in ‘78. I was in Lakeland, FL and the broadcast was crystal clear. I also remember the ‘78 Kentucky game and Munson mentioning before the field goal try that he met Robinson’s parents before the game, and he already missed two field goals. The guy was pessimistic in an enduring way.

In general, I remember the vivid descriptions of the weather, of the crowd trying to “push it’s way in” just before kickoff, of Georgia trying “to save ourselves”, of the half-yards and foots or inches to go, such as “we’re third down and a yard and a foot” or “we’re 4th and 3 inches.” Larry Munson is truly an original, there will never be another like him.

In the late 60’s early 70’s Munson was the voice of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Their football team – not so great; their basketball team – wonderful. He painted a picture then too. When I moved to Atlanta in 1974 it was wonderful to be able to listen to him again. Congrats Larry for all the years you made us feel a part of the game.

My two favorites are from my freshman year at UGA, perhaps because they introduced me to Larry’s style of narrative, a style which I fear will prevent me from enjoying anyone else’s call.

The first has already been discussed … the 1978 road game at Kentucky. I listened to it at my mother’s home in Rabun County and because the signal was faint and scratchy on an old AM radio, it took on a special feel which was truly thrilling. Although the call on the final Robinson kick was great, my main memory was of the final drive, during which Munson breathlessly called out the time repeatedly as seconds rather than minutes between each play … “Willie McClendon DRIVING over the right side five, seven, TEN yards … 99, 98, 97 … Jeff Pyburn brings them back up to the line … 94, 93, 92 !!”

By the time he got to the final kick, Munson was wrung out and so was I … it was wonderful.

The second was the Georgia Tech game the same year … the game was a see-saw affair in which Georgia got up early only to fall behind, get close again on a punt return by Scott Woerner only to have Tech run the ensuing kickoff back 100 yards and on top of that get a two point conversion, so there was plenty of exciting stuff for Munson. At any rate, the Dogs got the ball very late, tried to move and it boiled down to a fourth down play. Time was called, and during the timeout, the radio broadcast went to a station break … Munson did the usual “so a 20 second break, this is the Georgia Football Network” type of thing. However, after a pause, you heard Munson pipe up again:

“There is no sense in going away, because you KNOW it’s not gonna end like this!”

And they went to a station break. Of course, it didn’t end like that, and Munson knew it before the rest of us did.

I am going to miss his call more than I can possibly say … the greatest compliment I can come up with is to say that when he said “All right, get the picture now…”, we did. Every single time.

I have some of Larry’s best calls on my iPod and when I’m listening in my car with my iPod on shuffle and they come on I always get chills.

I had the opportunity of meeting him randomly on my birthday in December this year. My bf and I went to the movie theatre at noon on a Thursday to return some tickets to a movie we didn’t see and while we’re at the box office we see this elderly guy walk up with a female caretaker and he was wearing all Georgia attire. I mean from head to toe. Georgia hat, shirt, pants, everything. My bf turned to me and whispered “do you know who that is??” and I did. Then he spoke and there was no denying it. We walked up and asked if he was Mr.Munson and he said he was. And then we just shook his hand and told him what an honor it was to meet him. We asked him if he thought about the upcoming bowl game and he said “I’m not sure if they’re prepared mentally.” Smart guy. We told him to have a great day and we left. Best birthday present EVER.

I think it was a UGA/Clemson game, not sure which year (1980?) when Scott Woerner either took it to the house or almost did, and Munson yelled out – SCOTT WOERNER – 97 Yards!

Georgia vs. Yech in ‘97 was classic Munson…something along the lines of “they tore our hearts out and we picked it back up and put it in our chest”. The whole fourth quarter you can hear him living and dying with every call. It’s vintage and doesn’t get mentioned much at all.

murfdawg

The call in the KY game in 1978 is the most memorable for me and my neighbors. As Munson started yelling Yeah, Yeah,Yeah, my wife and I started yelling at the top of our lungs, jumping up and down, dancing around the living room(with the drapes open)and somehow glasses and beer bottles were being thrown at the fireplace with cries of “Take that!!” It was a warm October night and all the windows were open and my neighbors(who were from Michigan) were returning from watching a chick flick. The next morning there were groups of neighbors standing around talking and looking and pointing at my house. when I approached one group, the spokesman said that if I my wife and I have a fight we should at least keep the drapes drawn and the windows closed.

Only Munson could evoke that kind of emotion!!My wife and I have held season tix since 1973 and will celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary Monday. I hope Scott Howard can do for the new Bulldogs, what Munson did for the old ones.

GT game Bobo to Allen, “Touchdown Touchdown in the corner! We took are heart bleeding on the sidewalk and we shoved it back in and drove down the field!” That is close to what he said! Another good one was the Auburn game where Stan white got stuffed and couldn’t get another play off before the clock ran out. Nothing like Munson begging the guys to stay down!

Bill…you’ve captured all the great ones here. I also fondly remember the David Greene-to-Michael Johnson pass on the Plains…the kickoff return by Lindsay Scott at Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night…and being a Washington County native – I’m partial to his call of Robert Edwards’ final touchdown against the Gators in 1997.

Great column, Bill! Those of us in the Bulldog Nation will always treasure Larry’s calls, because there will never be another Munson. You mentioned some of the all-time greats, but some of my favorites are as follows:

3. It was a game we didn’t win, but the 1985 game against Alabama…. Labor Day weekend, a night game, between the hedges…. Larry said we’d been behind “for 16 hours” or something… then we block a Bama punt and he’s screaming “get on the ball” and “Touchdown!” about 5 times! Then, Mike Shula drove the Tide down the field in the last 80 seconds to beat us, and you could hear how crushed Munson was (we all were)… but it was great drama in about a 5 minute window.

2. The UGA-Clemson game in 1984…. I remember because I was 14 and the game was NOT televised because the Tigers were on probation. So the only “video” of the game was ABC break-ins about every half hour. Well, I was listening to the final minute, when Georgia got to midfield and Kevin Butler came out to try a 60-plus yard field goal…. and I swear to you, i grabbed the family Bible and held it as Larry made that call… “it’s a long one… a long one… Oh my God! Oh my God!!!” It was amazing to hear that… And somehow, I thought between Larry’s pleading and the family Bible that God DID help that kick sail through the uprights!

1. Finally, the 2002 Georgia-Auburn game on The Plains… the Dogs had a chance to win the SEC, but had fallen behind the Tigers. I remember Larry saying bitterly “We’ve had some shots, haven’t we?”, summing up what we ALL felt, that Georgia had blown it and didn’t have a chance. Well, calmly, David Greene put up that pass to the corner, and suddenly Larry EXPLODED as Michael Johnson caught it for a score… he just blurted out “TOUCHDOWN! MY GOD A TOUCHDOWN!” It was so unexpected, and that’s what made it so great. My heart lept with excitement, and I let out a blood-curdling howl of joy… good thing I was alone at work, listening to the radio, otherwise I would’ve scared the bejesus out of someone! I remember calling my wife and screaming “We’re going out to celebrate tonight!” She didn’t know exactly why her crazy husband was taking her to a steak dinner at 9 p.m. that night, or why he was hollering like a lunatic, but she did have an idea as she heard Larry blaring on the radio behind my phone call…. “I take it Georgia won?” she calmly asked.

Those were some great calls, and I consider it an honor that I got to hear Larry Munson’s broadcasts for 30 years before he retired. We all love you and treasure you, Larry, and we miss hearing your voice on Saturdays in the fall. God bless you and Go Dogs!!!!!

Remember when Auburn ran on the one without a timeout left and Munson told the Dog defenders to “lay down you guys”…….. Auburn never got the next play off before the clock ran out. “We saved ourselves, no…old lady luck saved us”!

Larry, you will always be the “12th man”!

Larry was and still is my hero. Georgia games will never be the same……………ever!!! Meeting my idol at Picture day in ‘95 was one of the coolest experiences in my life!

Larry said phrases like “we” and “our guy.” His broadcast were deep and rich, yet they contained an so much exvcitement.

I even enjoyed the broadcasts he did with the Falcons. During the early 90s during a playoff runs.

I’m not even a DawgFan. But man, that Munson sure could preach a sermon from the broadcast booth.

“RUN LINDSAY RUN”
“THEY HAD US DOWN AND BLEEDING, KICKING US WITH HOBNAILED BOOTS”… or something or other like that.
