R.I.P. Erk Russell


An email I received today from my friend Parker:

This morning at 9:10am in my birthplace of Statesboro, GA: Coach Erk Russell died of a stroke behind the wheel of his car. With his passing goes the man who created the Junkyard Dawg Defense and lead UGA to some of it's greatest seasons from 1962 to 1980, as its Defensive Co. and Asst. Head Coach. Without Erk there would have been no Dooley, no Sugar Bowls and no 1980 National Championship, period. The heart and soul of college football in the state of Georgia is no more, dulling our bright silver britches forever.
