Happy Thanksgiving Bulldog Nation! The UGA Paint Line hopes that each and everyone of you enjoy this special and reflective day with your family and friends. Let us be thankful for the many blessings we have, and of course, the Dawgs.
In your first edition of Throwback Thursday, a special Thanksgiving edition, we wish to show you what the Paint Line is thankful for. One of the many things the UGA Paint Line is thankful for is the many individuals that have laid the ground work for the Paint Line to still be thriving today. This week’s Throwback Thursday is a shout out to the Forefathers of the modern day Paint Line.
While UGApaintline.com is still gathering information on the history of the line, we do have an accurate history dating back to 2005. In 2006, the paint line conducted the first ever blackout among the paint line. The paint line at that time spelled out “GEORGIABULLDOGS”.
These gentlemanly scholars were well on their way to creating one of the strongest traditions of students in Sanford Stadium, the modern day Paint Line. Jon Tillman, Paint Line revolutionary, took charge of the Line in 2007. He desired for the tradition to stand strong, and his decisions proved perfect. He, and the rest of the Line, decided to go with full upper body paint, the red whigs, and the trade mark aviators.
In what better circumstances to honor this week’s Throwback Thursday with black paint. This week the #3 ranked Bulldogs take on the Jackets, and the Paint Line and students are excited about a fan BLACKOUT! Just a little something to motivate the players, fans, and send the Dawgs to the dome knowing that we have their back! Spread the word! #BlackoutTech
