It is time once again for the posting to which I most look forward each and every week of football season . . . namely, the Mark Richt Victory Watch, during which we count down each victory en route to Mark Richt’s inevitable overtaking of Vince Dooley for the all-time school record for career wins.
The Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 74. Coach Richt needs just 127 more wins to tie Coach Dooley for the top spot in Georgia history.
At 74-19, Mark Richt has the best record ever by a Bulldog coach after spending 93 games strolling the Sanford Stadium sideline. At the same point in their respective careers, Harry Mehre (57-32-4), Wally Butts (67-24-2), and Vince Dooley (63-26-4) all were well behind Mark Richt in wins and losses.
