The official mascot of the Georgia Bulldogs football team is unsurprising, a bulldog –the entire town is talking about the superstar of Georgia. With his all-white figure that resembles a cue ball or Q tip, the current mascot of the football team Uga X, also known as Que is regarded as the most successful mascot ever.
The long wait for National Championship success for the Georgia Bulldogs is finally over. A strong fourth-quarter performance against the Alabama Crimson Tide handed them a first National Championship since 1981, in a 33-18 win. Quarterback Stetson Bennett threw two fourth-quarter touchdowns to secure the title for Georgia.
Even in the tension of the play, the center of attraction of the stadium in Indianapolis was UGA the mascot dog. He is the latest in a line of bulldogs to be the Georgia Bulldogs mascot and the descendant of the former mascot Uga IX, also known as “Russ”.
Russ when turned 11, retired from his post. He had an eventful journey of about 5 years as the mascot and was officially prompted by a UGA IX during the 2012 season. Que is the grandson of Russ and carries the legacy of his grandfather with pride. He made his first debut at the Stanford Stadium at the 2015 annual countdown kickoff event.
Georgia’s cute and cuddly mascot lives in a permanent air-conditioned house near the cheerleaders. When it rains at Georgia home games, his handler Charles Seiler jumps in the doghouse with him. He chuckled and rebelled that it was his habit since he was a kid.
He also sits on a bag of ice to chill during the hot fall Saturdays in Greece. He was illustrated in the sports and magazines and they called him the No. 1 mascot in all of college football. Uga rides to the Georgia game in his car that has a custom license plate with his name on it.
