Uga VI passed away last night, bringing to an end a most remarkable career as Georgia’s top Dawg.
Damon Evans, UGA athletics director, bestowed the highest praise on the beast that he could Saturday, in a statement:
“Uga VI was a damn good mascot and a damn good dog,” said Evans.
Well said. God speed Uga VI.
As an addendum, Part 2 if you will, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer has an interesting bit on Uga’s Columbus connection. For those keeping score at home, the current Uga line began Dec 2, 1955 in Columbus, GA with the birth of Uga I.
