Welcome to Between The Hedges!

| No TrackBacks
Good afternoon, Bulldog Nation! I'm Kate and I handle a lot of the social media for the UGA Athletic Association. We are so grateful for your support on our official pages, which has helped us get over 350,000 "likes" on our Facebook page ( and over 37,000 followers on Twitter (@UGAAthletics)!

Our next big project is this blog, which we will affectionately call "Between The Hedges," and which we hope will give you another avenue - a looser, more casual avenue - to follow your Bulldogs. Posts here will typically be shorter and more informal than you might see in a press release, and my hope is that we will be able to give you a behind-the-scenes look into the daily happenings around the UGAAA and with all your favorite Bulldog sports teams.

We will officially "launch" Between The Hedges tomorrow, Feb. 1, in conjunction with National Signing Day, so please check back for updates on all the commitments Georgia receives throughout the day. We will also be keeping you posted via Facebook, Twitter, and on ALL DAY LONG, so you have no excuse for missing a minute of the action! 

I am working on getting an official blog e-mail address created so that we can take your feedback, so stay tuned for that and other exciting announcements. As always, thank you for your support from all of us here at UGA Athletics, and we'll see you tomorrow on Signing Day!
