I think it was cnnsi's guy that wrote an article a few years back about how the G wasn't that recognizable outside of the south. All I can say to that is currently I am at North Lake Tahoe on a skiing trip. I wear a black long sleeve t-shirt with only the G on it under my ski jacket and plenty of people knew exactly what it represented even without a connection to the University or the south, although I have been pleasantly surprised to meet plenty of fellow alums or people from the state out here as well. Just wanted to point that out.
I know whenever I take trips out west to parts of California, or Vegas the UGA "G" is plenty recognizable. I cant count how many "Go Dawgs" I got the first time I walked the Vegas strip in a UGA shirt. I'm sure most of the "Go Dawgs" people were from the South.
Still most of the college football fans I have met out West that have no connection to the South whatsoever seemed to atleast recognize the UGA "G". I also remember a backpacking trip I went on to Wyoming in 2008 where my UGA shirt was recognized by far more people than I would of expected.
Mark Bradley of the AJC said this as well, that people wouldn't know the G helmet. I emailed him and said that sports fans identify UGA with UGA, the dog. My two year old recognizes UGA, the dawg.
Love Tahoe. I've taken a ski trip every year out west for quite some time and Tahoe is my favorite, Heavenly to be exact. There is no path more scenic than Ridge Run. It is truly awesome.

We have been at Northstar this trip, but in the past when my college roommate whom I visit out here lived in LA ( now in SF), we skied Mammoth/June Lake. I have to say that although I have enjoyed this trip, June Lake is still my favorite. Never crowded and some of the best views of any ski mountain summit.
Agree on Tahoe being my favorite place, but as a boarder, I have to disagree with Heavenly. Too much flat ground for us and I wear myself out having to skate around. Ridge Run is great and the view is unmatched. I love Squaw and Sierra. Don't have the view of Heavenly but are both great mountains. I enjoyed Northstar as well. The Tahoe 6-pack is the best deal in skiing period. Throw in the view with nighttime gambling at Harveys or Harrahs and you have a perfect vacation week. Squaw is easily one of the most unique mountains around.
Just returned from Squaw. 1st time skiing there but loved it. Scenery was absolutely the best part of the trip. Prefer Beaver Creek and Vail to all others though.
I was sitting in a hotel bar last night in Memphis Tn and a older couple came up and sat down beside me. They were from northern Iowa. And they got to talking with me telling me they was retired just traveling the country. They had never been down south. Anyway I had my G hat on and they ask me if I was a Georgia fan and I was like O yeah! I was floored that they knew what the G stood for from the stories they was telling me. (I had to buy them a drink for their knowledge).
I def get a Go Dawgs most places I got! We are pretty recognized!!
I wear my 'G' all over Oahu/Hawaii
They remember the BEATDOWN to their beloved 'Warriors' and Colt Brennan
Yeah that just happened!! every day around here.
Oh, if you're looking to visit Hawaii, don't do it on Oahu - many of these 'islanders' could care less about you - and
they'll be sure to let you know; many think 'we' (white-America) stole their land.
not much recognition of the G in northern california. i've gotten (and given) a few "go dawgs" over the years, but people out here don't really seem to notice. not that surprising, though, since no one cares about football...
