The Two Davids, a tribute

Talk about your ultimate Verne Crush:

Of course, Lundquist helped bring the story of boyhood friends and later Georgia stars David Pollack and David Greene to a national audience with their youth league photo.

“From Snellville,” Lundquist said. “I never heard of Snellville until I met the two Davids. …I’m not sure why we became friends but the three of us did despite the generation and a half difference, almost two generation bridge. I respected their friendship, I respected their leadership, I respected what they did for the University of Georgia and what they meant to the university and still do.”

Said Greene: “Here’s the thing about Verne. I loved going and sitting down on Fridays. Just good people. It was him and Todd Blackledge at the time doing the color. Just good folks.”

Lundquist even wrote the foreward to Loran Smith’s book “The Two Davids” for the players he said “very quickly became two of my favorite players in the entire conference.”

I bet the GPOOE™ doesn’t have a Lundquist foreword to his book.

  1. Always good to have friends like him.

    Not having a Verne forward in my book was a bad deal. We’ll handle it, and it’s going to be a big deal.

    Will CBS please jettison Gary Danielson now and bring in Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge? Do me a solid, guys!

      Todd Blackledge was the best. Specially loved his “Taste of the Town” features as it showed a real interest in getting to know the places he visited.

        Todd’s in his late 50’s now. He’s hopefully not eating those huge meals anymore. Lest he wants to look like a real Hog body.

          Eh, Blackledge is good but I don’t get the complaints against Danielson. He says what needs to be said and usually adds a few tidbits to the game. He and Blackledge are a toss up to me.

          I’ll miss Uncle Verne, but Nessler is pretty much the best in the business. Looking forward to him, as much as I’ll miss Verne.


  4. I love Uncle Verne. Yeah, he messes up every now and then, but the guy loves his job. We’re all going to miss him. I hope the Redcoats play a rendition of the SEC on CBS theme when we honor him on Saturday.

    I’m excited for Brad Nessler, but Verne will me be missed.

    Tim Tebow needs to introduction.

    I’ll show myself out.


  7. John

    Tim Tebow needs NO introduction, rather.

    I will now show myself out for real.

    “A picture of their youth league photo…..”

    I played against that team as a youth. I did not like it one bit.

    Off topic, but if UNC beats FSU on Saturday does it mean we still suck?


    • Mayor

      It means the team is devolving each week under Kirby’s watch. By the end of the season they won’t be able to beat Clark Central HS.
