September 3rd not only marked a huge bulldog win for the first game of the season, but also a win for our beloved mascot Uga.

Turner South named the best mascots in the Southeastern Conference during its "best of" original show BLUE RIBBON and Uga VI of the University of Georgia scratched and clawed his way to the top, beating out Smokey of the University of Tennessee, Mike the Tiger of Louisiana State University and Aubie of Auburn University.

Viewers and fans voted for their favorite SEC mascot among the above nominees on and Uga was awarded the coveted Blue Ribbon trophy this Saturday from Turner South. Uga will be featured on the Blue Ribbon Award Show Special on Turner South this winter, go to for listings. BLUE RIBBON regularly airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on Turner South.

Interesting.....Turner South....a Time Warner Company....which used to be in part Turner Broadcasting....based out of Atlanta....In the state of Georgia.....less than an hour from way any type of bias was involved.

Clearly, the Anonymous douche-bag above who thinks somehow AOLTimeWarner is institutionally predisposed toward the Dawgs has his head in his anonymous ass. Turner's corporate offices are less than 25 yards from Georgia Tech's campus. If anyone's going to get home-cooked it would be that lame bumblebee next door.

Give Uga his props. He gets chosen as best mascot somewhere in the county about once a week.

BTW, it's not like there's a cash prize for UGA fans. Who CARES if it's biased, jabroni!

Yes, you're right. The bias would be toward Georgia Tech for best SEC mascot if this were 1935. At least once in that "county".

UGA is a great mascot, no doubt, he was just pointing out the fact there really was no shock in that. It would be like Jack Daniel's favorite mascot being Smokey.
