Wearing black for Uga VII?

Fans plan on wearing black for Uga VII. (University of Georgia)

Fans plan on wearing black for Uga VII. (University of Georgia)

There’s been no official call for a “Blackout” and I fully expect the team to be in the traditional red helmets and jerseys Saturday against Kentucky.

Which is as it should be.

But I’m hearing from a lot of fans who plan to wear black, or at least black shirts, to the game as a mark of respect for the Seiler family on the death of Uga VII.

That sounds like a good idea to me. Not a big media thing, not a “Blackout.”

Just the Bulldog Nation mourning its lost mascot.

What do you think? If you’re going, do you plan on wearing black?

Thanks CO-STARRING, Baylie is very excited. I hope the trip will not be too demanding for her. I just finished a radio segment on WGAC-580 in Augusta about the contest and her winning “The Ultimate Fan”. She was the subject of news stories yesterday while we were picking up the tickets. I hope the rain holds off long enough for us to get in a good game.

GO DAWGS!!!
GO SEILERS!!!!

Yikes!

LMOA! Prozac would be helpful with dawghater’s depression, but that is not his primary diagnosis. He has delusions of paranoia and grandeur. These patients usually refuse treatment because they are certain they are correct.

Donald Duck you too must be a true Tech fan also no class.Enjoy your few moments of glory for they will not last much longer. The Dawgs will mess up your dreams of an 11-1 season and Clemson will end your BCS dreams when they beat you in the ACC championship game. Why dont you geeks stick to your Tech web sites and try to impress each other with the crap you guys put on the Dawg sites. What no comic book convention for you nerds to go to tonight

Those graduation statistics are nothing to be bragged about for either school. Besides, I thought this was about UGA VII & paying respects to the Seiler family. You folks have my deepest sympathies on UGA VII’s untimely passing. I’m not a UGA fan, but it’s still sad about UGA VII. It is obvious that the donkeys making stupid comments have not had pets & realize how attached you get to one.

Hey Donald! Why do you have to keep saying dumb things? The stuff that you are saying about UGA fans are not that funny. I think that the only people that are laughing is you.

God I hate Tech fans. Jesus Christ they win one game (barely) after losing 8 straight, and they are ready to anoint themselves national champions! Guess what Tech fans, every year Tech will lose to an inferior team, and this year it will be UGA. Georgia has one chance to salvage this season, and beating Tech would do just that. I CAN’T WAIT TO RUB IT IN EVERY TECH FANS FACE WHEN WE ROLL INTO BOOBY DOOD AND STOMP THE BUMBLE BEES!

p.s.- Im not a stupid redneck Georgia fan, I’m a halfway intelligent student at UGA who was also accepted into Tech. I just dont want to spend the next four years around a bunch of losers and geeks when I can get a degree from UGA that is just as comparable as one I could obtain from Tech.

p.s.s.- And Dawghater, tell me why Tech fans (like you im assuming) always consider UGA fans to be rednecks and hillbillys. Is it because we have a MUCH bigger fanbase than you? Is it because we have MORE students and MORE alumni than Tech? Is it because up until this year our football program has been worth a damn? You all consider UGA fans to be classless, but look in the mirror my friend…I can make a post and make no personal attacks at all. Can you?

I’m in. Black it will be. I am so proud to be a Georgia Bulldog. We are among the oldest, proudest, and finest academic and athletic institutions in these United States. UGA VII was a continuance of one of the most iconic and recognizable mascots in all of college sports. Tomorrow will be a great day in Athens, Georgia as we are reminded of who we are as fans and family. It will be a great day for the seniors and our beloved football team as a whole. It’s too bad all of the recruits couldn’t have been at Sanford Stadium tomorrow instead of last week. God Bless you Coach Richt. WE ARE GEORGIA — Go Dawgs!!!!!!!

Don’t even MENTION anything like this. As much as Coach Richt loves this gimmick crap, he’ll have the team prancing out in dog costumes. Haven’t we had ENOUGH of this silly-ass dressing up…for ANY reason?
If we want to honor UGA, let’s quit worrying about what we’re wearing and go win every game from here on out.

Dawghater,

Tech is a very good school, so is UGA. You and all your Techie friends always wanted to point out that there was a higher academic standard over there because you couldn’t keep up on the football field. Tell me just who do you think beleives that you only recruit 3.0 students??? Sell that sh#% to the Tech alumns, they’re the only ones buyng. What was Reggie Ball’s GPA? How about Stephon Marbury? I was told by a very reliable source from GT, he left after 1 year because he was over his head in the classroom. By the way, we also have an O-lineman who was a gnat’s ass away from valedictorian of his high school and have our share of scholar athletes too.

GT is a great school and much improved thanks to CPJ on the field but trust me; he aint just recruiting top scholars over there!!!!

RIP UGA VII & GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!
