For the first time in nearly two decades, the Georgia Bulldogs and their fan base underwent a major change. Former head coach Mark Richt left the program back in December and took the job at Miami, which caused them to bring in former Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart to take things over.
With a big coaching change comes a big change among the ranks, especially in the department of team slogans. The Bulldogs revealed their new slogan Thursday morning and it seems pretty appropriate for what they want to do this year.

Junior cornerback Aaron Davis spoke with DawgNation about their new team slogan and exactly what it means to the team.
“We have this new motto: Attack the day,” Davis said. “So just take each day for what it has and try to have your best practice every day. During workouts, during practice, all the coaches remind us. Especially coach Sinclair, he reminds us ‘attack the day,’ get better today, and just do all you can.”
Last season, Georgia was favored to win the SEC East in August. They fell short of that goal, but still finished 10-3 with a win in the TaxSlayer Bowl. They will likely be one of the favorites in the division this year, so there is no doubting that they are going to go as hard as possible once they suit up in September.
The Bulldogs open the season on September 3 against North Carolina at the Georgia Dome.
