So while setting up my computer with the websites needed for this research, I came across this site:

History of UGA

Within about four clicks, I had come across these absolute horrific gems:

The line of pure white English bulldogs, which epitomizes everything Georgia...

and

Although Otto was not pure white like his father...

I mean...really? I dont know what else to say. Anyway, let's look at the rest of the Georgia Bulldogs.

Summary:

If you are a UGA fan and I have missed something here, I do apologize. I rely upon the school's AD website for most of my information, and the UGA site was lacking in some places, especially when compared to its conference bretheren.

At any rate, lots of close calls in there for UGA, with three NCAA runner-up finishes in the past few years. UGA really presents as a fairly typical, towards-the-top of the heap SEC team with their Learfield Cup standing and steady performance. Certainly they are beatable in some sports, but will be ahead of the game (and us) in many others.
