This was one of the rare weekends when I was unavailable to watch football. Fortunately it was cupcake week and our Beloved Bulldogs did not disappoint (at least they didn’t disappoint anyone that didn’t bet on them covering the spread.)
Last week I said, “Y’all we’re going bowling and with only ULL and Ga Tech remaining in regular season, we could actually win out and finish the year at 9-4. No promises of course, but statistically speaking, there’s a 12.5% chance it could happen.” Well we’re getting there. There will be two more games for the 2016 Georgia Bulldog Football Team and we have a 50% chance of winning each game. So the 9-4 possibility is now at 25%. I do love positive progress.
It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Football Wins whenever and wherever they occur. The ugliness of any particular win is irrelevant for the purposes of the Victory Dance.
It is therefore my deepest honor and privilege to bring to you this week’s edition of: Victory Dancing, Smart Style.
Coach Kirby Smart currently boasts a 7-4 record and a 0.636 winning percentage, having carded his seventh win of the season over the University of Louisiana - Lafayette. At the identical juncture in their careers:
Vince Dooley’s eleventh game as head coach resulted in a win over Texas Tech giving Coach Dooley an opening record of 7-3-1 and 0.682 percentage.
Coach Mark Richt was 8-3 (0.727) after beating Houston in the 2001 season.
Eleven games in to his head coaching career Kirby Smart is 3rd in line trailing Coach Vince Dooley by half a game and trailing Coach Mark Richt by one game. He’s just slightly behind the two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.
As always . . .
