Statement from Governor Sonny Perdue Concerning the Passing of The University of Georgia’s Mascot, Uga VI

Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement today concerning the passing of Uga VI, the beloved mascot of The University of Georgia:

"Uga VI was a tremendous ambassador for the University and the state, including his appearance just a couple of weeks ago at our inaugural economic development conference held in Savannah with officials from Canadian provinces and our neighboring Southeastern states. Though much of the Bulldogs' success in recent years has been attributed to Coach Mark Richt, most true Georgia fans know that his job will be much tougher now without the winningest Uga of all time stalking the sidelines, sitting on his trademark bag of ice and carefully eyeing any opposing mascot that dared to come close."
