My apologies for my tardiness; I took my son down to Houston County directly after the game to visit relatives. For those of you who were unable to join us, The Blind Pig once again permitted our shenanigans, the goat was sacrificed at half-time and as far as I can tell, a good time was had by all. This was the last time the Goat Roast will be held on Baldwin Street as The Blind Pig is relocating to some shiny new digs in the fairly near future.
While I was away, my colleagues here at Dawg Sports have already dissected the game for us and yes it could have been worse. Fortunately for us, we do have Nick Chubb, not have Ralph Webb as our running back. Mr. Chubb silenced his Vanderbilt critics and proved he is the better running back, at least he was yesterday. For that we must thank the Almighty and please remember to continue to pray for the health of Mr. Chubb* (suggested prayer found at the end of this article.)
It is therefore my deepest honor and privilege to once again bring to you, the Mark Richt Victory Watch.
Mark Richt has now secured his 138th career win, in only 186 total games as the head man in charge in the Classic City. Coach Richt currently boasts a 138-48 record and a .7419 winning percentage. At the identical juncture in their careers:
Coach Wally Butts was 115-63-8 (.6183) following the a win over Florida State between the hedges.
Vince Dooley and the 1980 National Championship Bulldogs featuring Herschel Walker had just won their sixth game of the season against Vanderbilt bringing Coach Dooley to an all-time record of 124-56-6 (.6667).
Mark Richt remains statistically head and shoulders above his historical coevals at the same point in their respective careers and the one man for whom I would leave my new husband, Mr. Podunkdawg**, should I be presented with such an opportunity.
I'll be back later in the week to update the #Chubb4Heisman campaign, until then . . .
Go 'Dawgs !!!
* Dear Lord, We ask in earnest request that you have a hedge of protection over Nick Chubb to maintain his health, add strength to his legs, and quickness to his feet. So that he might lead our Glorious Dawgs to extraordinary feats. Deliver Chubb to a Heisman crown and make the Dawg Nation, National Championship bound. And all the people of this Church say "Go Dawgs!!"
**That was totally part of the vows y'all. It's okay, I told him he could leave me for Stevie Nicks in return.
