Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Tributes a-plenty

Wednesday November 26, 2008

The last game of the season usually gives us an opportunity as fans to recognize and reflect on another outstanding senior class, but two other big tributes will also be featured during the day.

The Vince Dooley Athletic Complex will be dedicated in a ceremony on Saturday morning at 9:30 at the Butts-Mehre building. The ceremony will be followed by a ribbon cutting and unveiling of a plaza and statue along Lumpkin Street to honor Dooley’s contributions to the University.

Of course the last home game means Senior Day and a chance to recognize this year’s seniors for their accomplishments and dedication to the program. The ceremony should begin at roughly 11:45.

When the first quarter wraps up, keep your seats. Larry Munson announced his retirement earlier this season, but there was never a formal ceremony to honor Georgia’s legendary play-by-play man. There will be a short ceremony between the first and second quarters featuring a video tribute and Larry’s first visit to the Sanford Stadium field during a game. The ceremony will be brief at Larry’s request, but it will surely be emotional and raucous.
