ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The University of Georgia has revamped its specialty license plate in the hopes of getting even more backers of Bulldog Nation to show their support.

UGA already has some 60,000 of the specialty license plates on the road. The new design features the university's iconic "G'' logo with the words "University of Georgia" in red.

For each license plate, $10 is directed annually for need-based scholarships through the UGA Foundation. The new license plate replaces one that had featured UGA's mascot, Uga.

Those interested in the new tag will have to pay a $25 manufacturing fee plus $35 special tag fee plus any other standard fees and taxes if applicable. After receiving a temporary tag, the specialty tag will be shipped within seven to 10 business days.

Let's hope the new design is not another diss-sign by those flea bags at NIKE

UGA apparently smart enough to get some of the tag fee money put directly into their fund. Smart!

Most specialty tags go into the state general fund and do not help the represented organization in the slightest.

Make sure you are getting what you pay for when you buy a speciality tag!

I heard the dollar for "What Would Jesus Do" tag stickers so many people have bought actually goes to pay for BIOLOGY TEXTBOOKS!

So the foundation only gets $10 of the $35? I think I stick to my $3.00 decal. If I were to get a tag it would say MGMAYOR.

The Bulldog logo looks so much better. Why change it?
