“Vince Dooley Day” in Sanford Stadium September 27th?

At this moment, I have yet to find any University of Georgia football season ticket holders that have received their tickets in the mail; you know, that day where no matter how hot and humid it may be outside, all becomes a perfect 72 degrees and fair as you realize fall Saturdays are right around the corner. But on twitter, I discovered a University of Tennessee fan who tweeted a picture of his ticket for the Sept. 27th Dawgs/Vols game in Athens. And what was printed on the ticket alludes to something that may be very special for Dawg fans…

 

The ticket, which is clearly printed by the University of Georgia, features a mural of sorts of legendary coach Vince Dooley. And at the bottom it states:

In his 25 year coaching career, Dooley lead UGA to 201 victories 6 SEC Championships and a National Championship in 1980. He was indicted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1994. Please join us in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 season — the beginning of the Dooley era.

 

 

Vince Dooley Day

Somebody please chime in and let me know if you’ve already heard of a “Vince Dooley Day” so to speak this fall in Sanford Stadium, or if I’ve just been too busy and missed the announcement. 

 

It is not uncommon for UGA to honor and celebrate the milestones of teams, and I have barred witness to several in my years attending games. But this one seems a bit more geared toward a potential Dooley celebration. 

 

Any coincidence that president Michael Adams is gone? All theories welcome in the comments below…
