Quote of the day, Oct. 29

Larry Munson, on American college football (Georgia v. Florida, 1980)

“[Quarterback] Buck [Belue) back, third down on the eight. In trouble. Got a block behind him. Gonna throw on the run. Complete to the 25. To the 30! Lindsay Scott! Thirty-five, forty! Lindsay Scott. Forty-five, 50, 45, 40! Run, Lindsay! Twenty-five, 20, 15, 10, five! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Well, I can’t believe it. Ninety-two yards, and Lindsay really got in a foot race. I broke my chair. I came right through a chair, a metal, steel chair with about a five-inch cushion. I broke it. The booth came apart. Well, the stadium fell down. Now they will have to renovate this thing [the Gator Bowl] … This is incredible … We were gone. I gave up; you did too.”
