Beloved Mascot Uga IX Passes Away
One of our most beloved mascots, University of Georgia's Uga IX, passed away Monday morning. Uga died in the care of his owners, The Seiler Family, who has been raising Georgia's mascots for almost 60 years. Russ was officially promoted to Uga IX during the Florida Atlantic game on September 15, 2012, he served as the team's mascot until November 21, 2015 and left an overall record of 44-19. He will be missed!
Below is an excerpt from a story we did on Uga IX in our Aug/Sep 2015 issue.
