Former Georgia football coach Vince Dooley said he does not want to be a distraction. That’s why he declared Friday morning while participating in the 24th annual Quail Unlimited Celebrity Quail Hunt in Albany that he’s not attending the Bulldogs’ Oct. 9 home game against Tennessee, which now is coached by his son, Derek. Vince, who coached the Bulldogs to six Southeastern Conference titles and the 1980 national championship, told The Herald that instead, he plans to watch the game from inside his house. "I’ve really decided now that I will sit home and watch the game," said the legendary Bulldogs coach who coached Georgia to a record of 201-77-10 in 25 seasons. "I think that I’ll be a little bit of a distraction going to the game, so I’ll watch it at home on TV. (My wife Barbara) will go, there ain’t no question about it." After being asked if she would wear orange to the Tennessee-Georgia game, Vince replied, "I don’t know what she’ll do, but I will stay at home." Pressed further on whether he would wear orange when he visits other Tennessee games his son coaches, Dooley replied, "I’m sure (Barbara) will. I may wear something a little more subtle — if orange can be subtle. I certainly won’t wear any in Georgia. But on the proper occasion, I might wear a little spot of orange."

Vince Dooley will not attend the Georgia-Tennessee game. Good call.
