Saturdays in the South
Has anyone been watching this series on SECN? It's really good. I didn't know that UGA played Yale way back then and that money was offered and checks torn up. Very interesting story about UGA and Yale.

Also I knew the bulldog wasn't the first mascot for UGA, but a goat? LOL!!!! Killed and BBQ'd after the second game!

Some of it is very good.

The rest is predictably ruined by the usual politics, envy, and evil deceit that comes with the commie yankees at espn getting to be the ones to tell the "story" of Southern football.

Examples:
-Confederate monuments are all symbols of hatred and veiled attacks on civil rights
-white supremacy! white supremacy! white supremacy!!!--as if that was only regional at that time
-labelling politicians of the 1890s as "progressive" as if that means the same thing as it does now
-framing Christianity as the boogie-man that tried to get rid of footballll...wait for it.....
-UNTIL THE NORTH SAVED FOOTBALL!!!!
-because a Southern "progressive" governor was worried about offending northern "progressives"
-my GOd, the arrogance and deceit of these cancers

Like I said... when it discusses football, it's pretty good. But they can't resist spreading on the usual wall to wall demonization =.

Translation: They know that SOuthern football and all that comes with it is pure Americana greatness. But, they have to shite on it so they don't feel bad about not having any part whatsoever in creating it. Rinse...... repeat. Whatever.

Completely agree about the politics.

But seems that Mr Heisman wasn't a very honest man. I've learned a lot about southern FB watching the series.

Also agree about ESPN and their spin.

Who knew John Heisman was such a prick.
All hail the Iron Men of Sewanee.

Cool story about that game. After my great grandmother passed in the 90’s I had to help clean up her house. She was quite a hoarder and lots of stuff had to be thrown out. The one thing that was worth keeping was a program from that game in near mint condition.

I'd love to own a ticket stub from the game, that's like the uga fan holy grail IMO. The only one I've actually seen in person was at the museum on the backend of downtown. I was doing some community service there and couldn't beleive it, I asked the owner what the deal was and she said it was owned by a citizen that donated it to the museum, she didn't seem interested in entertaining bids for it.

For one season...1920...UGA was also called the Wildcats.

The first time a dog was used as a mascot was in 1894. That was a solid white Bull Terrier.

A variety of dogs were used at periodic times after 1920...The first 'real' bulldog was used in 1946, and a couple of others followed until 1951. They were of the white and brindle variety.

They were owned by a man from Warner Robins, who lent them to the team. One died of natural causes, and the other was shot and killed by a Warner Robins cop after he was roaming the streets, after having escaped from his pen.

Finally, in 1956, came the Bulldog mascot we all know and love...UGA I.

Didn't see it but what was the deal with checks being torn up and how much money was involved?

More like the Midwest (most notably the B1G)

In the early 50's they gave Beyers a dictatorship that lasted till the late 70's when Oklahoma and Georgia went to the Supreme Court. SEC was good back then but Beyers had the monopoly on what games the NCAA put on TV. Most telling sign was when the CFA formed, not on damned B1G or PAC team crossed the line to join the CFA. While the CFA was short lived, at least its finally gave real power to the south and midwest - where the real football was actually being played.

If you are old enough to remember Beyers you can drink a toast he is gone from the NCAA

Centre College busted the myth that only the Ivy League could play football
Sewanee gave us the Iron Men, who were from the south
Tulane gave Alabama the shot to play in the Rose Bowl
Alabama busted out the Rose Bowl and gave a national voice to southern football

(Rose Bowl limited to just B1G and PAC after WWII to monopolize the national tone)

You'd have to watch the first episode. Its too much to explain here, especially from me since I like to go into a lot of detail and would probably make the description a novel on this board. Unless someone else here can explain it in a short version. Nothing illegal was going on between the two teams.

SECN is replaying the first episode a lot so you should be able to watch it in the next few days or you can always DVR it.

Always thought you were probably in your 50s. If my math is correct, you're older than my dad.
