Winning Smart Victory Post #59

Syndication: Online Athens Joshua L. Jones / USA TODAY NETWORK

It was a perfect Fall day for football. Mr. Squillian attended his first ever collegiate game in person. He didn’t read my post last week, so his neck matches his shirt today. More notes (y’all feel free to take notes too) to self:

• While parking at the intermural fields is free, it is 1.5 miles from there to the stadium. It’s about a 30 min walk each way. Not so bad on the way in, but killer on the way out.

• Speaking of parking – have that sorted before you arrive in Athens. Trying to figure out where you will park once you arrive sometimes works out, sometimes it doesn’t.

• As football season progresses, be sure to check the weather forecast before you go. I found myself wanting long sleeves when the game was over.

• Even after visiting the bookstore after the game, and the aforementioned 30 minute walk back to the IM fields, there was still a LOT of traffic. Be patient.

It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Bulldog Football Wins whenever and wherever they occur. The ugliness or beauty of any particular win is irrelevant for the purposes of the Winning Smart Victory Post. It is therefore my deepest honor and privilege to bring to you this week’s edition of: The Winning Smart Victory Post.

Coach Kirby Smart coached his 73rd game tonight for the Red &Black. He currently boasts a 59-14 record and a 0.8082 winning percentage, having carded his fifty-eighth win overall over the Wildcats of Kentucky.

At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 73rd game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldogs loss to the Sunshine State Saurians in the eighth game of the 1970 season, giving Coach Dooley a record of 48-21-4 and 0.6986 percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 58-15 (0.7945) after a win over Mississippi State.

Seventy-three games into his head coaching career Kirby Smart is one game ahead of Coach Mark Richt and ahead of Coach Vince Dooley by 11 games. As of now, he is holding his own versus the two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.

As always . . .

Go ‘Dawgs !!!!
