Uga VIII laid to rest in Sanford Stadium; passed away in his sleep, on his bed, with his toys
For those of you not from the State of Georgia, UGA VIII is the beloved mascot of University of Georgia. Although he makes appearances at football games, he transcends football and is a symbol for the school. He represents strength, courage and loyalty as well as a kind and playful pet. He represents what we like to see in ourselves and our fellow man. That is why so many people are mourning his passing.
