Georgia remained at home following a 5-5 campaign. The highlight of the year was Dooley's "homecoming game" on the Auburn campus. Shug Jordan, one of Dooley's mentors, had his Tigers flying high and Auburn could have accepted a Sugar Bowl bid before the game, but the Orange Bowl officials wanted a decision over Georgia. The Bulldogs' 31-17 upset victory re-routed the Plainsmen to the Gator Bowl.

The Bulldogs rebounded to post an 11-1 mark behind sophomore quarterback Andy Johnson and tailback Jimmy Poulos. The tenth victory was achieved before the national television cameras at Grant Field on Thanksgiving night. With 1:29 on the clock, Johnson began a desperate drive. On the Bulldogs' final play, Poulos dove over from the one to notch the 28-24 victory. The Gator Bowl pitted Vince Dooley against brother Bill as Georgia won the defensive struggle, 7-3 over North Carolina.

The Bulldogs' 27-7 win against Tech was overshadowed by the publicity received by Jacket quarterback Eddie McAshan who walked out before the game. Defensive end Mixon Robinson, now a team orthopedist, is awarded an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship.

Offensive guard Mac McWhorter, now an assistant coach, is named All-Southeastern Conference on the field and in the classroom. Danny Jones, a defensive guard, is honored as All-SEC. Georgia defeated Maryland by a single point in the Peach Bowl.

1974 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats
Georgia installed the new veer offense but finished the season with a disappointing loss in the Tangerine Bowl and a 6-6 overall record. The offense looked good but the defense needed to be shored up.

1975 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats
Defensive coach Erk Russell needed a new name to inspire his charges and he came up with "Junkyard Dogs." This new breed of Dog began winning with regularity, and James Brown popularized a song about them. In the Florida game, tight end Richard Appleby threw the first pass of his career to a wide-open Gene Washington for 80 yards and a 10-7 come-from-behind upset victory that left Bulldog fans in a frenzy. A Cotton Bowl berth waited at the end of the season.

1976 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats
Led by quarterback Ray Goff and an experienced offensive line, the Bulldogs finished at 10-1 before losing to national champion Pittsburgh in the Sugar Bowl. The season was highlighted by a 41-27 come-from-behind victory over Florida. Goff was named SEC Player of the Year and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting. Offensive linemen Mike Wilson and Joel Parrish were named All-America.

1977 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats

Vince Dooley's only losing season (5-6) was the result of an epidemic of injuries, especially at quarterback, and a school record number of fumbles. But the foundation was being laid for things to come.

1978 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats
Led by SEC Player of the Year Willie McClendon, the "Wonderdogs" rebounded with a 9-2-1 campaign on the shoulders of many late, come-from-behind victories. Most prominent is Rex Robinson's field goal with three seconds left to defeat Kentucky in Lexington, 17-16.

1979 | Schedule | Lettermen | Stats
At 6-5, there was no bowl game for the 'Dogs, but they did defeat Florida and Georgia Tech. It was a good team with experience, but a missing ingredient had to be found - a tailback.
