Saturday night’s narrow escape from Nashville was not pretty in any aspect, from the play on the field to the margin on the scoreboard to the postgame fracas, though the same could be said for a similar win by the Georgia Bulldogs over the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Music City, and that season didn’t end too badly, did it? It is in that spirit that I present to you the latest installment of the Mark Richt Victory Watch.
The Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 101. Coach Richt is exactly 100 victories away from tying Vince Dooley for the all-time school record; he is exactly halfway to surpassing the existing standard in the Classic City.
Mark Richt is the most successful head football coach in University of Georgia history after his first 137 games on the job. With a 101-36 record and a .737 winning percentage, Coach Richt is out in front of the marks posted by Wally Butts (91-39-7, .690) and Vince Dooley (91-41-5, .683) after the same number of games.
