The Mark Richt Victory Watch

For the second straight Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs claimed a two-touchdown victory over an SEC opponent from the Magnolia State in a game in which the ‘Dawgs were dominant defensively yet allowed the other team to remain within striking distance due to second-half offensive anemia and field goal woes. Nevertheless, the end result was a win, which affords us the opportunity to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch.

Mark Richt registered his 99th victory as the head coach of the Red and Black this afternoon, putting him 102 wins behind Vince Dooley’s all-time school record. Mark Richt did so in his 135th game as the Classic City Canines’ skipper; by coincidence, Wally Butts’s 135th game as the Georgia head coach also was against the Mississippi St. Bulldogs.

Coach Richt has the most wins, the fewest losses, and the highest winning percentage of any Red and Black head coach 135 games into his tenure. At the identical juncture in their respective careers, Coach Butts (91-37-7, .700) and Coach Dooley (89-41-5, .678) both trailed Coach Richt (99-36, .733).

Go ‘Dawgs!
