It’s safe to say, after UGA’s road win over Auburn, that “Bulldog fever” is back among the masses.
NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Davis, who played football at UGA, was so happy about Saturday’s win that he recorded a video to congratulate the Bulldogs. He did with a precious bulldog coincidentally named ‘Uga” in his lap. His message (see video at bottom):
“In the words of Ice Cube, one of the greatest poets of all-time, he said ‘Today was a good day.’”
‘Today was a good day, right Uga? We took care of Auburn. We took care of them Tigers. You know, in a few weeks, we’re going to take care of some more Tigers – yeah, LSU. We’re going to handle our business this year.
“And this year, we’re going to be in the title (game). We’re going to be back in the championship round … in the final four. I think we get the job done this year. This team is more resilient this year. They are more focused this year. This team ain’t going to settle for nothing less than taking it all the way to the top.
“I’ve only got a few words to say: ‘How ‘Bout Them Dawgs.’”
Davis, 47, played at Long Beach State before the program folded. He transferred to UGA for his final three seasons, playing running back for the Bulldogs from 1993-95. Davis had an undisclosed issue with former UGA coach Ray Goff — and they finally talked it out a few years ago.
Back to Davis’s football career: He was selected in sixth round of the NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, and the rest is history. Davis shot to the moon in the professional ranks, earning three-time Pro Bowl honors and being named MVP of Super Bowl XXXII.
When Davis gave his Hall of Fame speech in 2017, he gave a shout-out to his alma mater.
Davis remains an avid fan of the Bulldogs, and has attended a few games in recent years, including the Missouri game in 2017. He now works as an NFL analyst for the NFL Network.
