The Mark Richt Victory Watch

The Georgia Bulldogs claimed their first road win of the season in Lexington on Saturday night, confirming the correctness of the feel good stat of the week in a wild game in which the Kentucky Wildcats never truly threatened to claw their way back into the contest yet never really went away, either. In the end, Kentucky turnovers and Washaun Ealey touchdowns were the difference in a shootout.

It is with great pride, therefore, that I am able to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch. This evening, Mark Richt carded his 94th career triumph to pull within 107 wins of tying Vince Dooley for the school record.

After spending 125 games strolling the sideline for the Red and Black, Mark Richt sports a 94-31 record and a .752 winning percentage. This puts him well ahead of the only two of his 24 predecessors to have coached that many games as the Bulldogs’ skipper.

Wally Butts, the second-winningest coach in Georgia history and one of the namesakes of the athletic department headquarters building in Athens, had an 85-33-7 record and a .708 winning percentage after 125 games. Vince Dooley, the winningest coach in Georgia history and the namesake of the athletic complex in Athens, had an 81-39-5 record and a .668 winning percentage at the same point.
