My name is Dan. My handle (DaveRobicheaux) comes from my love of James Lee Burke novels. Born and raised in Snellville and attended Shiloh High. I enrolled at UGA when I was only 17 and remember not being able to get into O'Malleys my freshman year...probably a good thing. I was never a Georgia fan until my second year of undergrad. I remember going to the UGA/GT game my freshman year and not even caring which team won. I grew up a pro football fan. My father, a transplant from New York, has had falcons season tickets since 70'. Needless to say, I have become quite obsessed with college football and the Dawgs. I love to watch any Div I game on TV. I Graduated in 2000 with degrees in biology and biochemistry. Went to the Medical College of GA, which is also where I met my wife. Did my residency in Emergency Medicine at LSU. I know live in Carrollton and have a girl (4) and a boy due May 18th. I like my back porch, good cigars, good bourbon, and of course my Dawgs. I'll keep my day job until my tour card comes in.

I was born in Chattanooga TN, and moved to Roswell when I was 15. That's where I met a guy that would end up being a brother to me, Jermaine Phillips. He played receiver at UGA for his 1st 3 years there, 1 as a redshirt, and played safety for his last two. Anyway that's how I ended up rooting for the dawgs, and HATING tennessee. Actually the color orange just hurts my eyes in general to be honest. I been a fan ever since he signed there in 1997, and even once he left I just stuck around because pullin for the dawgs just felt like the right thing to do in my heart. It literally means that much to me and I know the rest of you guys know what I'm talkin about. I'm 32 and about to graduate from Valdosta State University witha degree in Office Administration and Technology. Other than that I think this was a cool post and good idea to get everybody to introduce themselves. GO DAWGS!!
I was born a poor black child. Delivered on the kitchen table. Daddy wanted to throw me out and keep the stork. Something about Mama and the gas man and the wood pile out back. But then the midwife slapped me on the butt, I began to squall, and miraculously turned a whiter shade of pale.
At the age of 5 I invented oxygen, and later my idea for the Internet was stolen by Al Gore, but that's another story.
I played high school football for a South Georgia coaching legend (I know this cause I've seen his picture on the wall at the Albany Civic Center). My senior year we went 3-7. I also suffered an extended hitting slump that spring which derailed my dreams of a career as a professional baseball player.
One of the proudest days of my life was the day I received my "Official Letter of Acceptance" to the University of Georgia. I couldn't wait to tell Mama and Daddy the good news at supper. Dad, being a practical man said; "Son, you might ought to look for schooling closer to home. You'll need to get some part time work, too, to help pay your way."
I graduated in 1981 with a degree in brain surgerying, with a minor in double-naught spying.
Mama had a picture made of me receiving my diploma from former president Jimmy Carter, though for some reason she has always refused to hang it on the wall.
After graduation I was having some problems finding gainful employment, so I decided to go west and become a mule skinner. However, while crossing the desert I was abducted by aliens and taken back to their home planet of Trafalgamore, where I was kept in a zoo, with three beautiful women, and was forced to make love to them three times a day and beg for boiled peanuts.
But the Trafalgamorians were kind, and after 30 years, they have returned me to this planet. They were supposed to erase my memory so that I wouldn't remember my experience, but strangely, the only thing I can't remember is the 2009 and 2010 football seasons.
And by the way, it's true that Elvis is alive, and was an alien, just from another planet. I guess the old saying that you can't go home again ain't true afterall.

My name is Clarke, I'm 25 and I live in Charleston, SC (hence, marshlanddawg). Attended Presbyterian College from 05-08, transferred to finish my degree at Anderson University b/c my grades weren't good and my parents were tired of paying full tuition since I wasn't pulling my weight. My greatest regret in life is not buckling down and earning my degree from Presby. I love that place with all my heart and whether people like it or not, Presbyterian will always be my home.
My mothers family is from Athens, GA so I've been a dawg fan since I was little. I can't remember my first game but I know I'd go to one or two every now and then growing up, but mostly sitting in my grandfathers living room w/ the other 20+ members of my family cheering on the dawgs. In middle school, hs and college I went all over the place to watch the dawgs, our family even bought tickets to the Rose Bowl in '04 when the thought was if we beat LSU we'd get put out there. UGA lost, but we made a golfing wknd out of it and it was a blast. Tons of favorite UGA memories but being the Sugar Bowl in the blowout win against Hawaii was awesome.
My favorite teams are: UGA, the 3 main ATL teams, Vancouver WhitecapsFC, and the Vancouver Canucks. I follow all of them pretty religiously.
You can follow me on twitter @phishdastream. But be warned, I tweet a lot. Go dawgs!

Great stuff guys
Enjoyed reading all of them
My name is Nathan. Born in Colorado and lived all over as a kid due to my father being in the service. I'm going to be a junior at UGA in the fall. Grew up in northern VA hence VirginiaDawg. Ive missed one home game since 2002, my dad and i drove to every game from Virginia every fall weekend to see our boys tee it up between the hedges and my love for UGA has gotten to the point where I shed a tear or two when I got that acceptance letter. Both my parents are UGA alum do I've been a dawg since before I was born and will graduate in two years with a history degree and poly sci minor. I am also soon to be apart of the Bulldog Battallion(Army ROTC) and will serve our great country after I graduate. Other than football, I'm a huge hockey and golf guy so if you guys want to talk hockey, golf or history I am your guy. The PM box is always open.

God needs a Safety on His team. RIP 21
I'm Dave, originally from Watkinsville. We moved there in '73 from San Antonio...but I became a Georgia fan on Thanksgiving night, 1971 against Tech, not knowing I'd be moving close by 2 short-years later. My father retired from UGA in 2000, and my 2 sisters and I all attended UGA. I have many, many reasons to be thankful for all the wonderful things that have occurred in my life. Starting school at UGA as a freshman in 1980 rates very high. Currently, I work in Ft. Lauderdale and have been in south Florida since '93. I'm surrounded by Gators. Literally. At work, in the canals behind my house, crossing the road. Some end up in swimming pools, some end up in staff meetings. They're all offensive, especially in the fall. My existence has not been pleasant during late-October, early-November over the last 20-odd seasons for obvious reasons. However, things have changed. I believe Georgia, provided we can keep our composure and remain disciplined, is poised to go on a serious run against Florida. We are also building the kind of defensive foundation and consistency that will sustain this program for a long, long time. Defense wins championships, and we've got one hell of a defense...and it's not going to change as long as Todd Grantham is around. Go Dawgs!

Brent here, 32. Born in Stone Mountain, moved to Lilburn when I was 6. Moms side of the family is from Bogart (everyone went to UGA). Played baseball in high school at Brookwood but moved to Birmingham, AL while still in highschool. Finished at Hoover, many of you probably recognize Hoover as Coach Propst's (Colquitt) former home. Lifelong dream to go to UGA was realized in 98'. Unfortunately, I was young and stupid and chased a girl back to Bama after my freshman year. Finished at Samford Univ. Got married two years ago to an Auburn fan (what was I thinking). Currently working as a banker in Birmingham.
The university of georgia has always been like a family member to me. My father is a UGA grad and he took me to my 1st game during the Herschel days. Some of my fondest memories were those early Sat mornings driving to Athens to tailgate before the games. It felt like a reunion every week cause we had family in Bogart that would meet us at the games with the greatest home cooked food I have ever had. I mean who here doesn't consider UGA part of their family? Honestly, what other fan base in College football can truly say they have an emotional attachment to their mascot?
Will bleed red and black till the day I die.....Go DAWGS!

My name is Josh. Handle came obviously from me being from Perry, but born in Minot, ND. I'm 24 years old, married with one beautiful daughter (three in Sept) and wife, work full time and attend college all year (which sucks). I have been a dawg since I was about four after I started watching them on the television, and now my wife thinks I'm obsessed. My first game was the 2002 UGA vs UF game during my freshmen year of high school where UGA was undefeated up to that game and UF managed to break my spirit that night. I would certainly be attending UGA for college, but they do not have my degree and I wouldn't go to GT even if Hell froze over. Currently I drive a tractor-trailer for a food distributor, but cannot wait until I earn my degree so I can trade the hard life for the good life. Nice to read about everyone that visits the site, maybe one day we'll meet. God Bless and Go Dawgs!

It appears, from the down votes on my previous post, that some of you think I am lying. I assure you that what I wrote is totally true, except for the parts that aren't true. I had a hard day at the doctor's office yesterday and must have had a reaction to something.
In my other life I'm 52 years old, live in Leesburg, Ga. with my girlfriend of 11 years, and a bob-tailed cat named Bob Katt. I have a grown daughter, who I must say, showed great intelligence and maturity by marrying a UGA grad. I have a 2 year-old grandson who can already say "GO DAWGS" and "Herschel". I teach computer networking and security for a Sowega college.
I was a Dawg before I can remember. I can prove this because my Mama has a picture of me and my brother in our Bulldog outfits, complete with shoulder pads and helmets, that we received for Christmas when I was 2 1/2 years old.
My first Georgia Bulldog game was the 1976 21-0 white-washing of Alabama on Bear Bryant's last visit to Sanford Stadium. Man, was there a helluva party that night.
I'm Morgan. I'm one of the old farts on this site being 50. I was raised in Carrollton. Now I live in Toccoa. Graduated from UWG in 1984, MCG in 1988. I am now and for the last 22 years an Emergency Medicine Physician. But I have been a Dawg fan all my life. My first game was in 1978 when UGA beat the bugs and Eddie Lee Ivery. I was also at the first night game at Sanford Stadium when UGA beat Clemson. As always GO DAWGS.

I though your original post was pretty funny. Don't let the down voting discourage you.
Just turned 30 yesterday. Born and raised a colorado buffs fan in boulder colorado until 15, when I moved to Peachtree City. Earned my bachelors in finance from uga in 04, my masters in accounting in 05 and my Ph.D. in economics in 09. (I should get free tix for all the tuition I gave the university). Now a professor at university of west georgia. built an amazing group of friends, and now family over the years at georgia and owe a lot of my happiness and success to that school and town. Go Dawgs! Love me some G-day!
My name is Daniel, im a 19 year old student. I moved here to north Georgia in 2004 from Long Island, New York.
I never really liked football, didn't even know college football existed when I randomly tuned in to a Georgia game one day. It wasn't until the 2008 bashing of Hawaii that I fell in love with Georgia football.
Born a Yankee, will die as a DAWG
