UGA Athletics website goes down

ATLANTA -- Thursday morning, Georgia Bulldog fans wanting to buy season tickets, or get more information from the UGA Athletics Department were greeted by an empty website.

GeorgiaDogs.com -- the official Athletics Department website -- was down and replaced with a generic message offering to sell the domain by internet registration service Network Solutions.

Management of the site is contracted to IMG and CBSSports.com College Network, which runs official collegiate athletic department websites for about 175 schools across the nation.

The website was set up so that its domain name would automatically renew, but for some reason it didn't on Thursday. The domain issue has now been fixed, but school officials say the  site is still repopulating. Depending on your internet service provider, you may or may not be able to see it already.

In the meantime, the university is giving out the phone number to the school's ticket office -- 706-542-1231 or 877-542-1231 -- for anyone interested in purchasing UGA season tickets. Tickets can also be purchased through http://www.thegeorgiabulldogclub.com/ 

Season ticket holders will also have one extra day to renew their tickets. The deadline is now Friday.
