    Nothing confirmed, but Twitter (insert eye roll) blowing up that he is gravely ill. Any word from Peach State SportsJournalists.com?

    One of the greatest calls of all-time...

    "Buck back. Third down on the 8. In trouble. Got a block behind him. Going to throw on the run. Complete to the 25, to the 30. Lindsay Scott 35, 40. Lindsay Scott 45, 50, 45, 40. Run Lindsay! Twenty-five, 20, 15, 10, 5. Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Well, I don't believe it. 92 yards and Lindsay really got in a footrace, I broke my chair, I came right through a chair, a metal STEEL chair...Do you know what is gonna happen here tonight? And up at St. Simons,Jekyll Island and all those places, where all those Dawg people have got those condominiums for four days...MAN, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight!"

    Truly a legend. Enjoyed him on Falcons games, as well. Hoping for the best.

    Augusta Chronicle has a story ... but it's based on the Twitter speculation.

    For some reason it registered in my head as Lester Munson, even though you mentioned the peach state. I'm glad I read the story linked above.

    Most southern announcers annoy the shit out of me... For whatever reason, Munson did not.

    Granted, I have a family tie to UGA and usually root for the Doggies, but I don't think that was the reason why I always got a kick out of Munson.

    This is my favorite part of that whole call.

    Dawgs had Munson.
    Chickens have former QB Todd Ellis.

    "Sanders to the 40, the 45, the 50, the 55 ..."

    May he take a hobnail boot to whatever ails him.

    Not sure if he's gravely ill. Just know he has a gravelly voice.

    A grammatical nit, but is the thread title supposed to be asking if he has withered away? Or is it supposed to be asking where is he?
