In the aftermath of the Bulldogs' dramatic come-from-behind victory over Vanderbilt, it is time once again to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch, in which we here at Dawg Sports count down the wins on Coach Richt's inexorable march to breaking Vince Dooley's school record of 201 career victories.
The Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 66. Coach Richt needs just 135 more wins to tie Coach Dooley as the winningest coach in Georgia football history.
85 games into his tenure on the Sanford Stadium sideline, Coach Richt boasts a ledger of 66-19, giving him the best won-lost record of any head coach the program has ever had at the same point in his career. Harry Mehre (51-31-3), Wally Butts (62-21-2), and Vince Dooley (57-24-4) all had worse records after 85 games than that claimed by Mark Richt.
