    Charley Trippi, age 96, last living Bulldog from the 1943 Rose Bowl team

    Very interesting segment on GameDay.

    Still sharp at 96.

    I love his one answer when asked, "what is your favorite memory of the Rose Bowl?"

    "Winning!"

    Trippi was the MVP of that game, having run for 115 yards on 27 carries. I am sorry that he did not feel up to making the trip to LA for this one, but it is certainly understandable.
    Go Dawgs!

    Privileged to have met him.....what a kind and thoughtful man he is.

    He deserves a statue somewhere on campus......the most complete athlete to ever play at Georgia.
