Vince Dooley was the head coach at Georgia from 1964-1966 when Spurrier was the starting quarterback for the University of Florida football team. Spurrier and the Gators never beat Dooley's Dawgs. In 1966, the Gators had crafted a perfect 7-0 record leading up to the annual "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" matchup in the old Gator Bowl in Jacksonville. Dooley and his defensive coordinator, Erk Russell came up with an innovative game plan and the Bulldogs repeatedly sacked and battered Spurrier on the way to a 27-10 Georgia victory. Spurrier went on to win the Heisman Trophy that year, but the loss against Georgia cost Spurrier and the Gators their first SEC championship. The "Evil Genius" would be first to acknowledge that the loss was among the most painful he ever absorbed and it manifest itself in later years when he was coaching the Gators and continually running up the score in victories over Georgia. Dooley retired before Spurrier became head coach at Florida, so they never faced each other as head coaches. Spurrier was an assistant on at least one team that faced Dooley's Bulldogs.
