Anne Donaldson, who graduated from Georgia with a BFA degree and was married to Georgia assistant coach John Donaldson, was asked by Dooley to come up with a new helmet design to replace the previous silver helmet.
Dooley liked the forward oriented stylized "G" Donaldson produced, and it was adopted by him.
Wally Butts first introduced the "silver britches", as they are colloquially known, in 1939.
When Vince Dooley became Georgia's head coach, he changed the team's home uniform to include white pants.
The Bulldogs have won 15 conference championships, including 13 SEC championships (tied for second-most all-time), and have appeared in 54 bowl games, tied for second-most all-time.
The program has also produced two Heisman Trophy winners, four number-one National Football League (NFL) draft picks, and many winners of other national awards.
Georgia has won over 800 games in their history, placing them 11th all-time in wins.
In 1932, the Georgia Bulldogs left the Southern Conference to form and join the SEC, where Georgia has won the second-most SEC football championships, with 13, behind Alabama (24) and tied with Tennessee.
The first mention of "Bulldogs" in association with Georgia athletics occurred on November 28, 1901, at the Georgia-Auburn football game played in Atlanta.
The Bulldogs compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).
They play their home games at historic Sanford Stadium on the university's Athens, Georgia, campus. UGA claims two consensus national championships (19); the AP and Coaches Polls have each voted the Bulldogs the national champion once (1980); Georgia has also been named the National Champion by at least one polling authority in three other seasons (1927, 19).
