The Mark Richt Victory Watch Celebrates 100 Wins . . . and Counting!

In a game in which the Georgia Bulldogs relied heavily upon underclassmen, Mark Richt reclaimed his ownership of the SEC East series with the Tennessee Volunteers by guiding his team to a close, hard-fought win in a night game in Neyland Stadium. In the process, he also essentially reduced the "hot seat" talk to the province of message board yahoos and radio shock jocks desperate to retain their fading relevance.

It is, therefore, with great pride that I provide this historic update of the Mark Richt Victory Watch. Coach Richt earlier this evening notched his 100th win as the head coach of the Red and Black, putting him 101 triumphs behind the father of the man he defeated in Knoxville tonight.

With a 100-36 record and a .735 winning percentage, Mark Richt is tops among Georgia coaches after 136 games. With as many games under their respective belts, Wally Butts was 91-38-7 (.695) and Vince Dooley was 90-41-5 (.680).

Get used to the Mark Richt Victory Watch, Bulldog Nation. Our head coach is nearly halfway to the all-time school record, and, right now, it’s looking like a pretty good bet he’s going to get there.
