Though Fran Tarkenton and Pat Dye made All-American and Bobby Walden and Pete Case were All-SEC selections, things were not the same in Athens.  Coach Whitworth, the defensive mastermind, died three months after the Orange Bowl victory.  The Bulldogs came close to a bowl encore, and Wallace Butts called them the 'most hard luck' team he coached.

Amid much speculation, former player and assistant coach Johnny Griffith is selected to replace Wallace Butts as head coach.  Tackle Pete Case and left halfback Bill McKenny are named All-SEC.

Georgia upset national champion Alabama, 18-17, in the opening game and then shocked mighty Michigan, fresh off a Rose Bowl appearance, 15-7, in Ann Arbor.  Trailing the Crimson Tide 17- 10 with two minutes remaining, Dooley called the 'flea flicker' play that saw Kirby Moore pass to Pat Hodgson, who made a quick lateral to Bob Taylor who went 73 yards for a touchdown.  Georgia still trailed 17-16, hit Moore passed to Hodgson for the decisive two-point conversion.

Dooley directed his first SEC Championship team and was named SEC Coach of the Year for the second time in three seasons.  Georgia rallied from a 10-3 halftime deficit to hand undefeated Florida its first loss as Lynn Hughes intercepted a pass by Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier and raced 39 yards for the winning touchdown.  The Bulldogs also ran by Southern Methodist 24-9 in the Cotton Bowl.

Sanford Stadium was expanded to over 59,000 capacity to accommodate all the fans that wanted to see Dooley's Dogs perform between the hedges.  In a televised game at Grant Field, the Bulldogs beat Tech, 21-14, presenting Dooley with his fourth straight win over the Engineers.

Graduation took it toll on the 5-5-1 Georgia squad.  Bud Carson's Jackets beat Dooley's team for the first time to signify a bitter end to a disappointing season.  Georgia accepted a Sun Bowl bid and was handed a 45-6 defeat at the hands of  Nebraska which won the 1970 and '71 national titles..
