Uga IX, "Russ", currently serves as the Georgia Bulldogs mascot. He had been the first interim mascot since Otto in 1986. He is the half-brother of the late Uga VII and the father of the late Uga VIII. He received a "battlefield promotion" in 2012. Current record: 11-2 (.846).
Uga I was succeeded by his son, "Ole Dan's Uga" at an impressive pregame mascot ceremony at Homecoming 1966. With the Georgia Redcoat Band lining the field, Uga II was led to the center of the field by Charles Seiler, son of Sonny and Cecelia. The student body erupted in a cheer that was picked up by the entire stadium, "Damn Good Dog!"
