The Mark Richt Victory Watch

There are few things in life better than a Saturday night that ends with the opportunity to update the Mark Richt Victory Watch, but, lo and behold, we have ourselves another one.

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail, so I guess it follows that, if all you have is Ryan Mallett, a game against a top-tier SEC team looks like an L. The defense got it done on third down and Joe Cox had a career night to give Coach Richt his 84th career victory. Coach Richt needs just 117 more wins to tie Vince Dooley for the top spot in the Georgia Bulldogs record book.

The win improves Coach Richt's ledger to 84-23 after 107 games on the Red and Black sideline. Mark Richt remains out in front of his predecessors who lasted that long with the Classic City Canines, as Wally Butts was 78-26-3 and Vince Dooley was 70-32-5 at the same point in their respective careers.

I'll have more on the game Sunday evening, but, for now, let's take a deep breath and relax. Georgia is 2-0 in conference play, and there ain't nothing better than that.

Go 'Dawgs!
