Who owns the Georgia bulldog mascot?
Since the 1950s, Seiler and his family have owned and maintained the unbroken line of live mascots of the University of Georgia sports teams, English bulldogs known successively as Uga I – X.
Is Uga the dog at the game today?
Georgia’s famed English Bulldog mascot, Uga X, will not be present on the sidelines Saturday night for the team’s first home game against Auburn. SEC guidelines ban live mascots in stadiums this season during the COVID-19 pandemic. Charles Seiler, Uga’s owner and handler, understands the decision.
Why is UGA not on field?
Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald shares that Uga, Georgia’s iconic bulldog live mascot, won’t be present on the sidelines due to COVID-19 protocols. Apparently, Uga won’t be considered “essential” to the SEC and NCAA (plenty of Dawgs fans would certainly disagree).
Is UGA a good school?
The University of Georgia has advanced to No. 15 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 ranking of the best public universities in the nation. This marks the fifth consecutive year that UGA has placed in the Top 20, climbing from the No. 16 position last year.
