UGA means business

A concrete likeness of one of the most famous faces in Georgia sits atop a mailbox in Gainesville, Georgia.  I passed “UGA” while running a 5K Saturday that took us through an industrial park.    There have been several generations of UGA mascots at the University of Georgia in Athens.   He’s had lots of national exposure on TV during football games.  Having this concrete statue in front of a business probably attracts business.   On the other hand, I wonder if Georgia Tech, Auburn and other university loyalists are turned off by UGA.  On balance, it must be better for business than not.
