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?

Espn just reported that mark richt is being investigated for the death of UGA. Apparently he was trying to rally the bulldog nation for the Kentucky game. Willy is going to his defense, but we doubt that is going to be effective.

I wouldn’t mind seeing the team dress in all black, I liked the black helmets just not the red facemask. However, if they do it, they need to announce it. Because if they don’t and come out in the black, I don’t know how the fans will react.

Why can’t tech and gator fans get on this blog and act human? You are no better than the drunk jackasses you make fun of. Classless losers who think they are different than idiot UGA fans. when you grow up , come back to blog then.

Agree with mdawg. Didn’t mind the black helments, but the red facemasks screwed up the whole look. Black facemasks with the black helments from now on please.

And whatever they wear, they need to kick some butt!!

Dawgh8ter, what about the fifty players at Tech each year that wind up with no degree at all? That is a disgraceful number. UGA was just as bad before Richt took over, but it is obvious that Richt has taken steps to stress academics in the football program at UGA. Is Tech going to institute similar changes or will Tech continue to exploit athletes?

I like the way stadiums look when everyone’s wearing the same color. I don’t like the idea of a half-cooked blackout. Then it just looks like half the people don’t care. Just wear red and paint Uga on your cheek or something. Guys, if that sounds too girly, maybe just get some eye-black and write “Uga RIP.”

If CMR or the team want to wear something a little different (like at Jax), grow a pair and get a life.

As a long UGA Fan & dog owner I always had a dog from childhood & now. My deepest sympathies
go out ot the Seiler family UGAVII was not just UGA’s mascot but a beloved pet & member of the family. Severeral yeas I was at a game we went to the Butts Mehre Building & Saw UGA when they leaving to go the game they were nice enough to let us meet him & get our picture taken with him!!
that was a big thrill!! he is a very well behaved & sweet dog I still have that picture which I cherish & would not part with for anything. UGAVII was loved & will be missed but he died with his family & knowing that he was with them & loved by them as well as all UGA & pet lovers rest in peace UGA next to your dad & GO DAWGS!! Cindy

How about the black helments, jerseys and pants to mourne the loss of UGA VII?

Fans in black yes. Very fitting and a good idea. The Black Jerseys were meant to fire up the fan base, and add to the pagentry, would not be appropriate at this time.

Sad news indeed. Made me walk to the RIP corner of the backyard and visit a couple of “old pals” of my own.

SugarHill, a small lesson on protocol: The tradition of wearing black is not FOR the person, or mascot in this case. They wear black in a show of sympathy for the “family”. The jesture is for the Seilers, well worth risking looking like an idiot. (especially since its not really a stretch to wear one of the school colors to a school sporting event)

To all you “dawg haters” sorry but this is a house divised and we own nothing but “BULLDOGS”. This was one of the best looking UGA’s ever TO BE breed! My husband is a huge gator fan and we just recently had to put down our “BULLDAWG” that was named “GATOR”. I will be wearing my black shirt that I just puchased from “bulldawggraphics.com” that reads “OFF THE CHAIN”. . .. Go DAWGS!

I think it would be a nice gesture for the team to at least wear something black, pants or jersey, even the helmets.

I am ok with the black helmets- just put black facemasks on them. The red was hideous.

Michael

look folks, all black would be too much. If we are going to talk about uniforms, I think the already classic looking red helmet/black jersey/silver britches would work fine.

either that, or maybe we go with the red jersey and black pants? any other combination should be outlawed (except white jerseys and black pants…that needs to happen asap)

and I know people are saying this is a fan thing, but the seniors called for it as well, so I wont be suprised if the Dawgs are clad in black

but it will likely be a 50-50 chance. either way, it’s all about WINNING THE GAME FOR THAT DAWG!

Mikey that white stripe all by itself was just as hideous. I think a dual white thin stripe with a white or black, preferable, grill. And real good full eye visors.
