Which Game Is This From?

Wes Durham is a great announcer but really needs to work on his "splash play" calls

Learn from the master, Larry Munson:

7. Worse than bonkers: Sept. 22, 1984, Georgia 26, Clemson 23:Georgia trails No. 2 Clemson 20-6 early before rallying to take a 23-20 lead. It’s 23-all when Georgia’s final drive stalls at the Clemson 44-yard line. Coach Vince Dooley sends on place-kicker Kevin Butler to attempt a 60-yard field goal in the closing seconds -- a distance that Munson initially describes as “a hundred-thousand miles.” As Butler’s winning kick clears the crossbar, Munson says, "Oh my God! Oh my God! The stadium is worse than bonkers! Eleven seconds! I can’t believe what he did! This is ungodly!"

5. Looking at the sugar falling out of the sky: Nov. 13, 1982, Georgia 19, Auburn 14: Munson begs Georgia’s defense to stave off Auburn’s last-ditch comeback effort. "I know I’m asking a lot, you guys, but hunker it down one more time!" Munson pleads. After Auburn quarterback Randy Campbell throws incomplete on a final fourth-down pass, Georgia is able to run out the clock to claim an SEC championship and a spot in the Sugar Bowl. "Look at the sugar falling out of the sky," Munson says as the final seconds tick off the clock.

4. My God a freshman: Sept. 6, 1980, Georgia 16, Tennessee 15:Georgia rallies to beat Tennessee in the first game of the 1980 national championship season behind freshman running back Herschel Walker. On Herschel’s first touchdown run, he plows over Tennessee safety Bill Bates near the goal line, and Munson commemorates the moment with this: "He’s running all over people! Oh, you, Herschel Walker. My God Almighty, he ran right through two men. They had him dead-away inside the 9. Herschel Walker went 16 yards. He drove right over orange shirts, just driving and running with those big thighs. My God, a freshman!"

2. Run Lindsay Run: Nov. 8, 1980, Georgia 26, Florida 21:Munson implores Lindsay Scott to go the distance with a 93-yard touchdown catch in the final seconds as the Bulldogs earn a comeback win on the way to a national title. "Run, Lindsay!" Munson says, later adding, "Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott, Lindsay Scott!" as he crosses the goal line. As he reflects on the touchdown, Munson tells listeners, "I broke my chair. I came right through a chair. A metal steel chair with about a 5-inch cushion. I broke it. The booth came apart. The stadium, well, the stadium fell down. Now they do have to renovate this thing. They'll have to rebuild it now."

1. The Hobnail Boot: Oct. 6, 2001, Georgia 26, Tennessee 24: Munson says, "We just stepped on their face with a hobnail boot and broke their nose. We just crushed their face," after Verron Haynes' game-winning touchdown catch in the final seconds at Neyland Stadium gives Richt a rare UGA victory against Tennessee and his first signature victory as the Bulldogs' head coach.

Nobody can do what Larry Munson did and college announcing is different than the NFL.

Wes Durham is more button-down and smooth and I love listening to Durham who does a great job - but he could spice it up a little...he needs to be himself (not Munson) but his splash calls have gotten stale.

great post G dawg, no doubt Munson was the best! I remember being in the car going somewhere and having the radio on for the 'run Lindsay run' game.

Although the years he called the Falcons game, he always seemed like a debbie downer. Of course I can see how most of the time those teams could kill the excitement in ANYONE

Munson was probably exhausted doing Falcons games the day after a Georgia game. He always seemed to have to conserve his energy.

I am a Georgia alum (got there just after the Herschel years - bad timing!) but my first game ever was the UGA/Clemson game and the call above when Kevin Butler kicked the 60yd fieldgoal - it was awesome! little did I know, 4 years later it would be the best game I ever attended.

Clemson was ranked #1 in the country that year and Dawgs were down 23-3 at halftime.

Maybe it'll help if you add what the play by play contains. A lot of fans on here don't listen to 92.9.

All I can recall at the moment is "They just play actioned the world and Ryan threw a laser to Tony" or something like that.

Pretty much my predicament. I have never even heard the audio being that I live in Miami so all I know is its a play action to Tony. Which then just makes me curious how many times Matt threw to Tony off play action. lol

Thanks! Yeah, I will tune in for special events and such sometimes online. That is familiar, but have no idea.
