Why Mark Richt Has, and the Georgia Bulldogs Soon May Have, Cause to Celebrate

New, 8 comments

Earlier this month, the Georgia Bulldogs signed arguably their best recruiting class in recent memory, headlined by the Peach State’s top tailback, Isaiah Crowell.

In 1980, the Bulldogs won a national championship with a freshman running back from the state of Georgia.

The Southeastern Conference has won five straight BCS national championships with four different teams.

Over the course of the last half-century, the average age of college football coaches in the years in which their teams won national titles is 51.3 years.

Today is Mark Richt’s 51st birthday.

Happy birthday, Coach.
