The Mark Richt Victory Watch

Boy, 2010 feels like a million years ago right about now, doesn't it? - Michael Chang

The Georgia Bulldogs claimed their second straight SEC East championship and evened their 120-year-old series with the Auburn Tigers. That is worth commemorating in the Mark Richt Victory Watch.

Though I arrived home from my first trip to Jordan-Hare Stadium at 3:00 in the morning, it was well worth the journey to see the Georgia Bulldogs card a victory that was so consequential in so many ways that I feel obliged to wait until later in the day on Sunday to offer a postgame recap, in order to ensure that I do the experience justice. In the meantime, though, it is time to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch.

The Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 115, leaving Mark Richt just 86 wins shy of matching Vince Dooley’s school record for career triumphs. Coach Richt’s 115-39 won-lost record and .747 winning percentage through 154 games keep him well out in front of his coevals, as well.

With 154 games under their respective belts, Wally Butts stood at 102-45-7 (.685) after a 1953 win over Villanova and Vince Dooley was 103-46-5 (.685) following a 1977 victory over Richmond.

More will follow tomorrow later today, after I am better rested and fit to give this triumph the attention it so richly deserves. For now, though, it suffices to say that it’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog.
