The Winning Smart Victory Post, #60

It’s Halloween, and I presume that had a lot to do with the feeling of doom and dread that took hold of me Friday morning and didn’t let go until the clock struck 0:00 at the end of the WLOCP. Either that, or “as a Georgia fan, I’m constantly physically and emotionally prepared to lose to some random non-bowl eligible [Florida] team again and again.”

However, 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 74th game Saturday for the Red & Black. He currently boasts a 60-14 record and a 0.8108 winning percentage, having carded his sixtieth win overall over the Swamp Lizards of Gainesville.

At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 74th game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldogs win over the WarPlains Tiglesmen in the ninth game of the 1970 season, giving Coach Dooley a record of 49-21-4 and 0.7101 percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 58-16 (0.7838) after a loss to Florida.

Seventy-four games into his head coaching career Kirby Smart is two games 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 !!!!
