The first mention of "Bulldogs" in association with Georgia athletics occurred on November 28, 1901, at the Georgia-Auburn football game played in Atlanta. The Georgia fans "had a badge saying 'Eat `em Georgia' and a picture of a bulldog tearing a piece of cloth";[1] however, it was not until 1920 that the nickname "Bulldog" was used to describe the athletic teams at the University of Georgia. On November 3, 1920, Morgan Blake, a sportswriter for the Atlanta Journal wrote a story about school nicknames for football teams and proposed: is the 332nd day of the year (333rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1901 (MCMI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Monday [1] of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ... is the 307th day of the year (308th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Sportswriting is a form of journalism who writes and reports on sports topics and events. ... The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the only major daily newspaper of Atlanta and metro Atlanta. ...

The Georgia Bulldogs would sound good because there is a certain dignity about a bulldog, as well as ferocity.[2]

Shortly thereafter, another news story appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in which the name "Bulldogs" was used several times to describe the Georgia football team and the nickname has been used ever since then. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the only major daily newspaper of Atlanta and metro Atlanta. ...


The athletic department suffered through several controversies in the early 2000s, including a major scandal within the men's basketball program. In 2003, a power struggle between University President Michael Adams and athletic director and beloved Bulldog legend Vince Dooley stole headlines across the country when Adams refused to renew Dooley's contract, effectively firing him. The battle became one painted as academics versus athletics, though this idea was rejected when the University's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences faculty issued a vote of "no confidence" on Adams' leadership in 2004. Michael F. Adams (B.A., speech and history, David Lipscomb College, 1970; M.A., communication research methodologies, Ohio State University, 1971; Ph. ...

To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


The firestorm has calmed slightly since then, however, largely due to the success of Dooley's successor, Damon Evans. In 2006, the Bulldogs recorded the highest profit margin of any athletic program in the country (according to the EADA report[3]), pulling in USD$23.9 million, and also recorded another highly-successful year on the field.

The Bulldogs' most historic rivalry is with the Auburn Tigers , referred to as "The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry" and dating back to 1892. The other rivalries are between the Bulldogs and the Atlantic Coast Conference's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ("Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate") and the Florida Gators (The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party). In addition, UGA enjoyed a strong rivalry with the nearby Clemson Tigers for many years in football, especially in the 1980s. The Bulldogs and the Tennessee Volunteers annual showdown on the second Saturday of October has become a rivalry as a result of the 1992 division of the Southeastern Conference into Eastern and Western divisions. Before 1992, the two teams had only met 21 times since 1899. Beginning in 1992, the two teams have played annually as members of the same division.[5] Head coach Tommy Tuberville 9th year, 79–33 Home stadium Jordan-Hare Stadium Capacity 87,451 - Grass Conference SEC - Western First year 1892 Website AuburnTigers. ...

The football team has celebrated recent success, compared to some relatively lean years in the 1990s. Between 1989 and 2000, the Bulldogs earned a record of 86-53-1 under head coaches Ray Goff (often derisively referred to as Ray 'Goof', a nickname given by former Florida Gators and current South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier) and Jim Donnan.

In addition to their 2 national championships, the Bulldogs have won 12 Southeastern Conference (SEC) championships, the most recent coming in 2005, boast two Heisman Trophy winners (Frank Sinkwich, 1942, and Herschel Walker, 1982), and hold the distinction of having three graduates become Super Bowl MVPs (Jake Scott, 1972, Terrell Davis, 1998, and Hines Ward, 2005).

The Georgia-Florida game is held annually in late October/early November in Jacksonville, Florida, a site intended to be neutral. However, it is worth noting that the neutrality of the game's location is a point of contention for many Georgia fans; many of whom argue that Jacksonville's location relative to the two universities favors Florida. The city lies 342 miles from Athens, Georgia, home of the Bulldogs, but only 73 miles from Gainesville, Florida, home of the Gators. University athletic directors recently extended the agreement to continue playing in Jacksonville till 2010. The game is considered a must-do for many UGA students and alumni. Georgia holds the all-time advantage in the series, posting a win-loss record of 47-37-2 (46-37-2 according to the University of Florida, which does not include the 1904 game in Macon, Georgia before officially sanctioning its football program.) The University of Florida began closing the gap, going 15-1 between 1990 and 2003. Georgia has begun to even up the series since, winning in 2004 and 2007 while the Gators took the game in 2005 and 2006. “Jacksonville” redirects here. ...

Men's Basketball

The UGA men's basketball team has not in recent years been as successful as the Lady Dogs, and among men's sports, it has always been overshadowed by the football program. Both the men's and women's basketball teams play home games in Stegeman Coliseum. The current men's head coach is Dennis Felton. NBA star Dominique Wilkins is considered the greatest player in school history.[12] However, in one of the great ironies of college basketball history, Wilkins never played in the NCAA tournament; the Bulldogs made their first NCAA appearance in 1983—which would have been Wilkins' senior year had he not opted for the NBA. The 1983 team made it to the Final Four of the NCAA Championship. The 2007-2008 team won the 2008 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament, securing that champion's automatic bid for the 2008 NCAA tournament.

2008 SEC Tournament: The Dream Dawgs

In the 2007-2008 season, Georgia's men's basketball team came into the SEC Tournament with a 13-16 overall record and a paltry 4-12 conference mark. At one point, the team sustained two five-game losing streaks during a 2-of-12 stretch in conference play. In the first round of the tournament, Georgia was slated to play Ole Miss, who had beaten the Bulldogs in the season-closer, securing the Rebels' only road SEC win of the season. The game went into overtime after Rebel David Huertas hit all three free throws after a three-point shooting foul, and looked to go into a second extra period after Chris Warren did the same. However, with 0.4 seconds left in overtime, Georgia senior Dave Bliss banked in the game-winner to shock the Rebels and send Georgia into a second-round matchup with Kentucky. The University of Mississippi, also known as Ole Miss, is a public, coeducational research university located in Oxford, Mississippi. ... The University of Kentucky, also referred to as UK, is a public, co-educational university located in Lexington, Kentucky. ...


On the night of March 14, 2008, tornadoes hit Atlanta, in whose Georgia Dome the SEC Tournament was housed. The Georgia-Kentucky matchup was rescheduled for the early afternoon of March 15, and both teams faced an unenviable situation: the winner would have to face the SEC West's #1 seed, Mississippi State, that night. Even more daunting for Georgia was the fact that the remaining games in the tournament would be played at Alexander Memorial Colisseum, the basketball complex of Georgia Tech, UGA's most hated rival. Again playing an overtime game in which Georgia star Sundiata Gaines fouled out, Georgia freshman Zac Swansey hit a turn-around three-point jumper with 1.4 seconds left to give the Bulldogs the team's first ever win over Kentucky in the SEC Tournament[13]. That night, Georgia defeated Mississippi State 64-60 to become the first team since Kentucky in 1952 to win two tournament games in one day, and the first-ever #6 seed to advance to the modern (post-1992) SEC tournament finals.

In the finals, Georgia faced Arkansas, who had lost to Georgia 82-69 in the regular season. Georgia prevailed again, at one point leading the Razorbacks by nineteen points en route to winning its first tournament championship in 25 years. Sundiata Gaines and Terence Woodbury were both named to the All-Tournament Team, with Gaines winning the tournament's MVP. The improbable list of achievements -- winning the tournament as a 6-seed, playing two games in one day to reach the finals, playing two games (against Kentucky and Mississippi State) in which star Sundiata Gaines fouled out with a substantial amount of time to play, doing it on a rival's home court, and winning four consecutive elimination games following a season during which their longest winning streak stood at three -- earned the 2007-2008 team the love of Bulldog fans everywhere, as well as the nickname of Dream Dawgs[14] The University of Arkansas is a public co-educational land-grant university. ...
