Damon Evans, a Georgia man through and through, said: "Uga VI was a damn good mascot and a damn good dog. He was an outstanding representative of our fine institution. While this is a sad day for all Bulldog fans, our condolences especially go out to the Seiler family." Michael Adams, in what surely will be remembered as the most dignified and respectable moment of his presidency, remarked:
The burial ceremony in Sanford Stadium will be private and, although no formal "passing of the bone" to the heir who will take up the mantle as Uga VII has yet been arranged, the Seiler family has "stated that the lineage is secure," so there is no need for unease during this interregnum.
Rest easy, Uga VI. You were a damn good dog.
