Georgia Honors Verne Lundquist With a Portrait of Verne Lundquist

The longtime broadcaster will retire following the season.

It’s hard to beat watching a Georgia Bulldogs game with ol’ Uncle Verne Lundquist handling play by play duties on CBS.

With the 76-year-old Lundquist set to retire at the end of the season, UGA gave the broadcaster a parting gift for his efforts.

Brad Nessler will take over for Lundquist, who has held the position for 17 seasons, next year. Nessler’s great in his own right, but it’ll never be quite the same.
