Uga VIII has Arrived!
So there is a new kid in town! At least in the University of Georgia there is. The new Uga has been selected. His name is Big Bad Bruce and his coming out will be this Saturday at the homecoming game against Vanderbilt in Athens. He is the grandson of Uga VI and is 13 months old weighing in at 55 pounds. Big Bad is all set to carry on the tradition of his forefathers. Frank "Sonny" Seiler's family has owned and breed the Georgia mascots for the last 50 years. "We had several puppies that were direct descents from the Uga line to choose from," said Seiler. "We came to the conclusion that this dog had all the physical attributes that we look for in a Georgia mascot." The interim bulldog Russ who has been fulling in so far this season will be able to move on and do other things. Perhaps dog food commercials. Who knows!? At least he can return to the comfort of his own couch on Saturday afternoons. Good luck to Bruce. Go get em boy!
