“I don’t know what I’d do without an Uga.”

I’m a sucker for stories about Georgia’s iconic mascot, and this one certainly serves.  I love this bit in particular:

In the years since Uga’s beginnings, the mascot has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and appeared in multiple movies. When Georgia won the 1980 national championship, Uga III received an inscribed championship ring.

“He didn’t have a finger,” Seiler said. “So I wore it for him and still do.”

That’s one ring you’ll never see for sale on eBay.

  1. Traditions like Uga will always make college sports better than pro sports.

    You think Uga is more iconic than the Dallas Cowboy Star?

    And despite what the iconic symbols like Uga, Ralphie,. Bevo, etc. mean to the game, we are still banned from bringing Uga into the ND stadium right? Kind of makes the word “tradition” mean less when you think of the Domers doesn’t it?


  4. This sounds like a great stunt in the making. I haven’t thought it all the way through but parachuting UGA in at half-time while the band is preforming sounds like a good place to start. We can sneak UGA into South Bend ,we have the technology . These anti-canine mo-fo’s need to be resisted.

       Someday when the  team is up against it , and the breaks are beating the boys, tell em to win one for the dawg.


  5. This sounds like a great prank in the making. We should find a way to get UGA in the stadium uninvited. I don’t know if it’s parachute him in at half time or sneak him in inside some band or team equipment box . This can be done….we have the technology. These anti-canine mo fo’s need to be resisted with great fervor.
    Someday when the team is up against it and the breaks are beating the boys tell em to go out and win one for UGA.. Go Dawgs.
    It’s easier to get forgiveness than permission. Get UGA in the stadium and than dare the sum bitches to throw him out….see how that works out for em.

    I would love for Uga to go after their little leprechan the way our previous Uga went after the Auburn receiver…but this time, catch him!

      +1 And that would be another iconic picture I would have to buy and frame. Even if it doesn’t happen, someone should do a drawing of it!
