It was the first home game of the season, and the Bulldog faithful showed up loud and proud. While I couldn’t be there in person, I know those who were there cheered as loudly as I would have (I could hear them in the TV coverage). Your final score against the UAB Blazers was 56-7, with their only score coming on a late pick-6 thrown by Carson Beck. All in all, it was a solid game that was never in doubt.

It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Bulldog Football Wins whenever and wherever they occur. The ugliness 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 68th game tonight for the Red & Black. He currently boasts a 54-14 record and a 0.7941winning percentage, having carded his fifty-fourth win overall over the UAB.

At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 68th game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldogs loss to Mississippi State in the third game of the 1970 season. Giving Coach Dooley a record of 45-19-4 and 0.6923percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 55-13 (0.8088) after, ironically, a win over UAB.

Sixty-eight games into his head coaching career Kirby Smart is one game behind Coach Mark Richt and ahead of Coach Vince Dooley by 9 games. As of now, he is holding his own versus the two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.

As always . . .

Go ‘Dawgs !!!!
