One Week til Kick Off

After 36 years between The Hedges, Loran Smith is retiring. The Bulldawg Radio team is evolving, following a natural progression, whateverthatmeans.

“Whaddayagot, Loran?”

Georgia fans heard legendary radio voice Larry Munson ask Loran Smith that question down on the field for more than three decades during Bulldogs football games.

Munson retired during the 2008 season and now Smith will no longer be Georgia’s sideline reporter.

Georgia is replacing Smith as sideline reporter with Chuck Dowdle, the former WSB TV sports director who already does postgame locker room interviews. Smith will continue in his role as co-host of Georgia’s pregame radio show.

[…] The catchphrase “Whaddayagot, Loran?” uttered when Munson threw it down to the field to Smith during radio broadcasts is part of Georgia lore.

So much so that the English Bulldog mascot Uga VI was named with that phrase.

Happy Trails, Loren. Catch you next time at the Mayflower.
