Fran Tarkenton

Many people lose sight of UGA greats prior to the years Herschel Walker was running over people. I heard NFL Hall of Famer, and former UGA quarterback, Fran Tarkenton on the radio this morning talking about his new book, "Every Day is Game Day".

Fran Tarkenton led the 1959 Dawgs to the SEC Championship under Coach Wally Butts. He's been inducted into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, the NFL Hall of Fame, and the College Football Hall of Fame. His book is essentially his autobiography which highlights some great days on and off the field.

Bottom line, if you've finished Munson's book already I suggest swinging over to Tarkenton's website and picking up his new book. The best part is (for my fellow memorabilia junkies) you can get it personalized from Sir Francis himself on his website for $16...helluva deal.
