Larry Munson Dies: Georgia's Official Statement, Obituary

The Georgia Bulldogs confirmed Larry Munson's death Sunday night, releasing a statement shortly after his passing.

From the University's official announcement, which also serves as an extensive obituary, collecting his finest quotes along with tributes from around college football:

Larry Munson, legendary voice of the Georgia Bulldogs for 42 years, died at his Athens home Sunday night with complications from pneumonia according to his son, Michael.

Funeral arrangements had not been determined.

Munson wrapped up a lifetime of sports broadcasting in the fall of 2008, most of which was spent with the Georgia Bulldogs from 1966 to 2008. His dramatic delivery, along with an unabashed partisanship for the Bulldogs, endeared him to generations of UGA fans.    

It would be impossible to put together all of Munson's most-beloved play calls, but his personal site has a pretty extensive list. We're collecting some videos for the morning.
