You can take an old dog to a new season.

Russ, the bulldog that served as interim mascot following the December death of Uga VIII, will remain in the mascot position for the opening game of this football season according to Savannah Morning News

The opening game against the University of New York at Buffalo will come September 1 this year.

The Seilers, the family that serves as caretakers for Uga, have not released any information about Uga IX, according to the article, but Charles Seiler did express worry about placing the puppy in the recent heat swells.

Uga IX has yet to be announced. Russ, according to the article, perpetuates the Uga bloodline and has sired "several" puppies over the last year-and-a-half, according to the article.

Heading into the season, Russ boasts a 14-10 record and followed the Bulldogs all the way through their 2011 season, which ended in a Southeastern Conference title.

    Understand the history of UGA the dawg (Knew Mr. Sonny well when I grew up in Savannah!) But Russ has done well and I do hope he gets recognition for our SEC East win.
