That’s Mark Bradley quoting Vince Dooley and it’s as appropriate an epitaph for Uga VII as I can think of. Maybe he wasn’t as feisty as some of his predecessors, but he still wore the jersey well.

I second Paul’s condolences to the Seiler family.
But I also had to laugh at Orson’s take:
“How we can lose a damn good dawg like this and still have Willie Martinez is…it’s just…it’s just not right.”
Seriously, scan the interwebs and see how many feel a need to say something about his passing. How many mascots engender that kind of response?
Rest in peace, boy.
Looking at this week’s broadcast schedule, I can’t help but wonder how the Dawgnation has sinned in the eyes of the WWL.
Kansas State @ Nebraska (ESPN, 7:45pm)- Brad Nessler, Todd Blackledge, Erin Andrews
Kentucky @ Georgia (ESPN2, 7:45pm)- Mark Jones, Bob Davie
Kansas @ Texas (ABC, 8pm)- Ron Franklin, Ed Cunningham
6-5 Kansas State’s coming off of a 38-12 loss to Missouri. And when’s the last time Kansas won a freaking game? As Mark Jones himself once said in a different context, that ain’t right.
Auburn’s #93 reminds you to wash before sampling.
On the threshold of Colt McCoy breaking his NCAA record for most wins as a starting quarterback, a gracious David Greene is the subject of a very nice piece by Tony Barnhart.
I really enjoyed these quotes:
“David had all the tools and I knew pretty early he was pretty darned good,” said Richt, now in his ninth season at Georgia. “He may have been the best student of the game from the very beginning of anybody I’ve coached. What he learned in our meetings he took directly to the field and he would progress exactly the way he was taught.”
“It’s funny. With every quarterback I’ve ever had, even with guys like Charlie [Ward] and Chris [Weinke] there was a time when they didn’t play well and everybody wanted to get rid of them,” Richt said. “David really never went through that. He has his defining moments early in his career and just kept on winning.”
“If there was ever a perfect fit, it was me with Coach Richt,” Greene said. “He taught me how to play the position and how to manage a game. That’s what a quarterback has to do when he is surrounded by good players. You just get the ball into the hands of guys who can make plays. Don’t try to do too much.”
I sit behind the visitors’ sideline, so I can’t believe I missed this. (h/t EDSBS)
Way to feed into that stereotype, fellas.
I wonder if that GA thought his job description would include “washroom attendant”.
