Georgia's Bulldog Mascot Uga X Won't Attend Games Due To COVID-19 Protocols

Georgia's mascot, Uga X, will not be attending football games this fall due to COVID-19...

Uga X's owner and handler, Charles Seiler, says there will be no four-legged cheerleader at home games in Athens this season ... citing the guidelines surrounding the pandemic.

"It’s my understanding the SEC and NCAA consider the field a ‘bubble,’ and the only people allowed in the bubble are essential," Seiler told the Athens Banner-Herald. "As of now, no dog on the field."

Not only will Uga be absent from the field, Seiler says he will not be in the stadium AT ALL to prevent crowds from forming around the doggy celeb.

"The whole idea is to not have people to congregate ... and if you know anything about the dog he’s kind of a magnet and he draws people and they’re trying to avoid that."

Maybe Clemson will keep their mascot off the field. That deranged looking Tiger on drugs.

This is getting fricking stupid. Whats next? Not allowing the punter on the field until its 4th down?

We didn't have Uga in South Bend, and it turned out just fine.
