    Russ = DGD.

    Soooo…mindless commentary about Russ underachieving from the usual sources, or will GTP get at least one day of reprieve?


    • DawgPhan

      Nope. Someone came at me yesterday on twitter with the usual “Russ isnt committed to winning” nonsense. And then follow up with “Sorry, that’s the truth”.

      Pretty sure he was serious because he had about a dozen tweets to that effect on his timeline yesterday. So no, we wont get any respite even for a DGD that was always there for the Bulldog Nation when we needed him.

    Russ did the best he could, always available when needed. Couldn’t hep it that he was b bi rn “wrong”. Enjoy yor golden years old boy, Que will take it from here. Mizzou might be a good week for the transition.

    So, how long till the PETA Peckers chime in about their usual crap?


  5. Back in the late Seventies, didn’t we get a new UGA right before we won the NC? 🎈

      Sorry Joy, Uga III ascended to the fireplug in, like 1972, hung up his cleats in 1981. Four (Fo) had a few more wins, but was a typically underachieving mascot with no national championships.

    Wow! Staff changes really are reaching into every aspect of the program.

    When asked about the change by Bark Madley, Russ responded he was taking it “ruff”.

    How is our program supposed to have any sort of success with all this instability at the Uga position? Typical boneheaded “Georgia Way” decision.

    Oh please God, not before the Bama game, Sonny, please.

    I guess being named Uga is sort of like being named Pope. Your name becomes “Uga” regardless of your name before that. Here’s to Uga, long may he reign.

    Q Dawg lit up the Bayou Bengals one hot night in Red Stick….

    I read the change won’t happen until the 2016 season.


  13. Russ Is one of my favorites.I will be dissatisfied to see him retired.

      Eleven is pretty long in the tooth for an English Bulldog. Thank God we had him when we needed him. I just hope the Seilers brought in some fresh blood.

      Ditto on the no collar ceremony during the Bama game.
