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?

Don’t be surprised to see red jerseys and black pants. Gotta be something on the helmet.

Mikey, much thanks. We do our best to represent the Bulldawg Nation. We are proud to be Dawg fans.

Cuz, and I am guessing you aren’t doing it, “since we are going to loose”, either.

gator69, great name by the way, my pal Gatorzone sent us a link on a Gator blog that was way over 90% in sympathy for the Seilers and us fans. There are some things that transcend smashmouth football. Love for your God, love for your country, love for your family and love for the dogs that love us sometimes more than we may deserve. They become a part of our hearts, not just appendages.

Loose heck, win baby. The SEC DC fantasy league, soon to be trademarked, says Dawgs by ten or more. Bank it, book it, whatever those Tech guys say. They have to run. Willie is good at stopping the run, not good at the pass. They cannot stop either, we have a good night moving down the field. I wonder if I can get Baylie to meet the watergirl. Now that would be awesome.

Baylie wanted to know if the fans could hear us in the skybox. I said probably not. She said she wanted them to know she was making some noise. I think they will get the picture. I will have to take a pic of her when her picture shows on the big screen. This is one of the biggest deals of her life. She will fight through the pain all day. Maybe she should give the locker room speech.

Now that would be an inspiration to all that were present.

I will not wear black. Seiler and English Bulldog breeders in this country breed for large bone and head and pugnacious look at the expense of hip dysplasia, breathing problems, whelpings by C-section because of the large heads, and cardiomyopathy. I wish Uga VIII was not descended from this blood line – each generation seems to die younger. Will Uga VIII make it to 3?

Incidentally, UGA — the university — is not dead. UGA’s mascot, Uga VII, did pass away yesterday.

My Dad told me when he brought us our first puppy, “enjoy him, but don’t get too attached to him.He’s a dog, anything could happen to him.”

Dawghater – Industrial management, the easiest degree to get from the trade school. That’s the major that all football players say they are studying. Tech graduates 40% of it’s football players. WOW that’s impressive. I call that “.go sweep the floors boys”.

UGADawg, I bet the part of the University in front of the Library will have a pulse tomorrow. I bet they will shut that area down for tailgating. I have young relatives without tickets who will be partying there tomorrow. Game, what game.

Im sorry for all my rude remarks. They didnt teach me any better at Tech. Im just a nerd that is jealous of UGA and all it has to offer. I applied to Georgia but my grades were not good enough. I had to settle for Tech. I know my degree is worthless and I will end up working for a UGA grad. At least then I will have some assoication with UGA, even though I will be their Bit@h.

GACracker is correct. Down here we don’t make a fuss over show dogs. We cure them with a .22. It’s sinful to breed an animal like this. Any of you hicks ever heard of Charles Darwin? This poor creature of God was doomed from the get go.
On the other hand, great story about Cuz’s daughter. A real tear jerker.

Woof.

Please don’t replace my descendant with a Pit Bull! I realize the players all want to wear black and dance to gansta rap and drive all around Athens without licenses, but have mercy on my family.

And don’t make my next descendant wear a black jersey or a black helmet for God sakes.

Grow up, wear your regular uniform, obey traffic laws, put more effort into fundamentals than into sideline dancing, and act like mature human beings.

Woof.

I won’t be at the game but, just like I, normally, wear RED – to honor the military – I will be wearing black, tomorrow.

I hope UGA IV is the inspiration, the DAWGS need, not only to defeat Kentucky, but also to whip Tech, in two weeks!!

Donald you my friend are classless gerk. Why you feel the need to come a UGA blog and talk all kinds of trash tells all DAWG fans one thing, and that my friend is that your are one jealous person. Let me guess you wanted to go UGA for school, but you couldnt get in so therefore you had to go to the North Avenue Trade School. I am sorry you were not smart enough to get into UGA, but my friend its time to let it go and get off our freaking blog. I am tired of reading the crap you put on hear. Lets wait and see you or any of the other tech fans get on here after that A** whopping your going to get next weekend. RIP UGA VII you will be missed, and go dawgs GATA and to hell with TECH

Lady Dawg, you shouldn’t correct anyone until you can spell DOG! Damn you people are funny. Sorry to hear about UGA, maybe the bad football and gramma made him sick.

I don’t think they offer that degree at Georgia State.

Hershel Walker running down the field in a black helmet and Jersey. Couldn’t imagine it. Keep the traditional colors.. . . changing colors from red to black etc. denegrates the brand. Lets see should the Green Bay Packets wear red? The black helmets were discusting.

Ooh lets wear all black . . and look like a bunch of pencils running down the field. How gay. Ooh lets wear all white the next game and that way no one will know who we are. Keep them guessing. Gimmicks should not get in the way of tradition. I would have refused to play if they wanted me to wear a gimmick color change. Red helmets, silver britches, white or red jerseys . . . that’s UGA.

I agree with Hershel. UGA has turned into a pansy organization with all the uniform changes.
