The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that UGA VI, the mascot of the University of Georgia Bulldogs, died Friday night of heart failure. UGA VI had replaced his father, UGA V, as the Dawgs' mascot in 1999.

Burial is scheduled at Sanford Stadium on Monday.

These days everything that happens takes my mind back to Dr. Giddens. Dr. Giddens, a huge University of Georgia football fan, could "Woof" with the best of them.

Perhaps it's not too silly of me to hope that the Dawgs win the national championship this year in memory of UGA VI and especially in memory of Dr. Giddens.

Here's wishing great success to UGA VII.
