Nicknames


It was not until 1920 that the nickname "Bulldog" was used to define the football team, a name bestowed by sportswriters. On November 3, 1920, Morgan Blake of the Atlanta Journal wrote a story about school nicknames and proposed:
The Georgia Bulldogs would sound good because there is a certain dignity about a bulldog, as well as ferocity.

Shortly thereafter, another news story appeared in which the name "Bulldogs" was used several times to describe the Georgia team and the nickname has been used ever since. Prior to that time, Georgia was simply known as the "Red and Black." In more recent years, the Bulldogs have been referred to by fans as the "Dawgs."

Uniforms


Georgia's standard home uniform has not significantly changed since 1980, and consists of a red helmet with the trademarked oval "G", red jerseys, and silver pants.

James Wallace "Wally" Butts, Jr. was an American football player and coach and college athletics administrator. He served as the head coach at the University of Georgia from 1939 to 1960, compiling a record of 140–86–9...

 first introduced the "silver britches," as they are colloquially known, in 1939. When Vince Dooley became Georgia's head coach, he changed the team's home uniform to include white pants. The uniform was changed back to silver pants prior to the 1980 season, and has remained silver ever since.

Georgia's earliest helmet was grey leather, to which a red block "G" logo was added in 1961. The shirts were usually red, sometimes with various striping patterns. Georgia's uniform in the pre-World War II years varied at times, sometimes significantly. Photographic evidence suggests that black shirts, vests, and stripes of various patters were worn at times over the years.

Vince Dooley was the first to incorporate a red helmet into the uniform 1964, adopting the oval "G," a white stripe, and white facemasks. Anne Donaldson, who graduated from Georgia with a BFA degree and was married to Georgia assistant coach John Donaldson, was asked by Coach Dooley to come up with a new helmet design to replace the previous silver helmet. Coach Dooley liked the forward oriented stylized "G" Mrs. Donaldson produced, and it was adopted by him. Since the Georgia "G" was similar to the Green Bay Packers' "G" used by it since 1961, Coach Dooley cleared its use with the Packer organization. Nonetheless, Georgia has a registered trademark for its "G" and the Packers' current, redesigned, "G" logo is modeled after the University of Georgia's redesign of Green Bay's original "G" logo. The helmet change was part of a drastic uniform redesign by Dooley, who also replaced the traditional silver pants with white pants that included a black-red-black stripe. The jerseys remained similar to the pre-1964 design, however, with a red jersey and white numbers.

Prior to the 1980 season, the "silver britches" were re-added to Georgia's uniform with a red-white-black stripe down the side. Since the 1980 season, Georgia has utilized the same basic uniform concept. The sleeve stripes, trim colors, and font on Georgia's home and away jerseys have varied many times, but the home jerseys have remained generally red with white numbers, and away jerseys have remained generally white with black numbers.

The most recent trim redesign occurred in 2005, when sleeve stripe patterns were dropped in favor of solid black jersey cuffs on the home jersey and solid red cuffs on the away jersey. Matte grey pants have also been used at times instead of "true" silver since 2004, mainly because the matte grey pants are of a lighter material.

Alternate uniforms


One of the things that makes Georgia's uniform unique is its relative longevity, and the fact that it has very rarely changed over the years. There have been occasions, however, when alternate uniforms were worn for one game during a season.
  • Red pants were used instead of silver as part of Georgia's away uniform at various times during the 1980's.
  • Black facemasks and a white-black-white helmet stripe were worn during the 1991 Independence Bowl

     and the 1998 Florida game.
  • Black jerseys were worn instead of red as part of Georgia's home uniform in games against Auburn and Hawaii during the 2007 season, and in 2008 against Alabama.
  • A unique away uniform was worn during the 2009 Florida. This uniform included black helmets with red facemasks, a white stripe, and the traditional oval "G" logo; white jerseys with black numbers; and black pants.
  • During the 2011 Chick-fil-A College Kickoff

     against Boise State in the Georgia Dome, Georgia wore a Nike Pro Combat Uniform that was significantly different from the traditional home uniforms. The Nike Pro Combat uniforms used a non-traditional matte-finish red color, and included the following:
    • Silver helmets with a large red stripe and traditional oval "G" logo
    • Black facemasks with a large red stripe in the middle, mirroring the red stripe on the helmet
    • Two-tone red jerseys with black sleeves, trim, and numbers
    • The word "Georgia" on the back of the jerseys instead of players' names
    • Red pants

. All three rivalries commenced over 100 years ago. With long rivalries, it is not surprising that there is some disagreement over the records between the schools. For example, Georgia discredits two games in 1943 and 1944 against Georgia Tech, both UGA losses, because some of their players were in the war. Georgia also credits a game against Florida in 1904 (a Georgia win) that Florida does not count because allegedly it did not have a football program at that time.

Georgia has long-standing rivalries with other schools as well, with over 50 games against five additional teams. Since the formation of the Eastern Division in 1992, Georgia has an emerging rivalry with the Tennessee Volunteers
