Oops. Georgia to Correct Mistake

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Not so fast, Georgia.

The school distributed plaques to its senior football players at
its annual awards gala in December with 7-6 inscribed as the team's
record. The problem, though, was that the Bulldogs were 6-6 at the
time.

Sure enough, the school had to take back the 23 plaques after
the University of Central Florida defeated Georgia last week 10-6
at the Liberty Bowl.

It's not the first time the school has had to revise senior
plaques, Bulldogs spokesman Claude Felton said. He said the team
routinely includes a bowl victory in the record on the plaques
during the annual gala, which is always held before the bowl game
in December.
