Orson, irreverent, as usual:
Georgia fans were stunned at the announcement this afternoon. Speaking on conditions of anonymity, one source close to the program offered the following verdict:
“How we can lose a damn good dawg like this and still have Willie Martinez is…it’s just…it’s just not right.”
Peach Pundit (from whom I swiped this adorable picture).
Now he’s playing with Erk, in that big DawgPound in the sky.

Yesterday was a thoughtful day for dog lovers, a difficult day for Dawg fans…but a painful day for the Seilers. Everyone else can take their mascot envy and shove it! [...]
But when word spread of Uga’s passing…well, to be honest…Kentucky doesn’t stand a chance in hell.
We’ve got an embattled coaching staff, a baseball player going through the fight of his life, enough seniors bringin’ mommas to fill a two-deep and an empty Dawg House with a funeral wreath. The great Bear Bryant could return to the north sideline in a blue leisure suit with Coach Brooks propped on his shoulders and it wouldn’t make a damn bit of difference.
