R.I.P. Erk

The state of Georgia was hit today (Friday) with some very sad news.

Erk Russell (aka Junkyard Dog) died in a car crash.

Erk Russell served under Vince Dooley as the University of Georgia's defensive coordinator from 1964 to 1980. Most will agree that Erk Russell was as good a defensive coordinator as college football has ever seen. After leaving UGA, Erk went on to lead the Division I-AA Georgia Southern Eagles to national titles in 1985, 1986, and 1989.

Erk Russell was a college football legend and he will be deeply missed...

This is truly a sad time for the Bulldog Nation and for all who love college football .. Erk was the greatest defensive coach I've ever seen, and just one hell of a man .. GATA, Erk, and rest in peace
