Russ Returns

UGA VIII has come down with an intestinal illness in his stomach and will miss the Liberty Bowl according to the AJC’s Tim Tucker. 

However, “Russ” the former stand in for UGA VII, who died prematurely in 2009, will return to fill in for the Liberty Bowl.  Russ’ record is  mediocre at 4-4.  However, he led the Dawgs to a huge win on Grant Field last year as the Dawgs upset the 2009 ACC Champion “Maggots” from North Avenue 30-24. 

I believe UGA’s biggest rival will ALWAYS be the “Maggots”.  As Vince Dooley so eloquently stated “If you don’t think Georgia Tech is our biggest rival, then try losing to them.”  Jim Donnan had to come to the realization of that fact the hard way as he was 2-3 against the “Maggots” losing his final 3 in the series. 

 The 2009 win over Tech was special, and in my opinion one of the most important in the history of the rivalry, because it left a gigantic asterisk on Tech’s championship season.  For that reason alone, Russ will always have a special place in my heart.

Go Dawgs!

    How can we have a Vet school that can’t keep one dog healthy? This is getting as bad as our football team.
