Vince Dooley favors extra game

Albany -- Former Georgia head coach and Athletic Director Vince Dooley favors a change to the current college football post-season process.

In town for his book signing Thursday, Dooley admiring a strong finish for the Bulldogs, including beating rivals Florida, Auburn, and Georgia Tech.

While not ready to commit to a full playoff, Dooley says he'd like to see a "Plus One" game, which is one more game played after the bowl season to determine a national champion.

If the "Plus One" was in effect this season, it would likely be LSU, Ohio State, USC, and Georgia in the mix, and Dooley says he'd like the Dogs chances.

"They finished very strong, and could have been one of the top, if not the top team," says Dooley. "If we had a little playoff, I'm not sure we might be national champions. Nevertheless, they did great, and I think it's a great indication of things to come."

Georgia takes on Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl New Years Day at 8:30 pm.
