The 1906 Georgia Bulldogs football team completed the season with a 2–4–1 record. Georgia’s only victories in the 1906 season came against Mercer and Auburn. The season included Georgia's third straight loss to Georgia Tech and the seventh straight loss to Clemson. During the 1906 season, the forward pass was legalized and the team tried to use this new play, however, an errant pass contributed to the loss to Davidson. This was the Georgia Bulldogs' first season under the guidance of head coach Bull Whitney.
The team started the season under the guidance of head coach Bull Whitney, but the season became marred by the "Ringer" controversy. At that time, there were no football scholarships, but enthusiastic alumni often raised money to pay professional players who were referred to as "ringers." After the 1907 game with Georgia Tech, it was revealed that there were at least four ringers on the Georgia and Georgia Tech teams. Thereafter, Georgia completed the season without its ringers and without Bull Whitney, who was forced to resign. Branch Bocock actually coached the last three games of the 1907 season.
