UGA VIII Is Dead, And I Don’t Feel So Good Myself

UGA VIII has died:

The white male English bulldog, who took over as Georgia’s mascot before last season’s homecoming game against Vanderbilt, was diagnosed with lymphoma early last month.

“We all mourn the loss of Uga VIII, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Seiler family at this time,” Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said.

Let’s hope a new UGA can be chosen quickly, as I don’t think our football program can survive Russ’ record much longer.

Meanwhile, as I’ve been out of town and mainlining Nyquil, two of our front page posters have written posts which require violent disagreement.  But, it is Friday, and these matters can wait.  I’ve posted my column for today below, and I’ll leave you all to your weekends while I hopefully finish off this cold and my supply of meds.

    Seiler seems to have run in to the same problem as Richt lately.

    Can get the new talent in, can’t coach ’em up to get anything out of them once they’re there.

    “…violent disagreement” hopefully is a metaphor for a sharp pencil coming…..these are trying times…..

        And in bankers it is a virus first noticed in the Okeefenokee Swamp, termed “Me First” , now known as “Goldmansachitis” and airborne transmitted in financial circles….

    Since this is an open thread, did any of you see British PM Cameron saying that tolerance for radical Islam should be lessened? Finally!!! It’s about damn time someone grew some balls and called out these animals. Only Australia and England are saying what we all feel.
