The Winning Smart Victory Post #70: The Going Ugly Early Edition

Good morning Dawg fans!

Someone once said (paraphrasing here): you’re never as good as your best win, and you’re never as bad as your worst loss. Yesterday wasn’t our best win, and I think we all know we are better than that.

Ladd McConkey had a very uncharacteristic 1st half, but was able to shake it off before the 2nd half began. Stetson Bennett threw his first interception of the year (and it looked to me that he had a couple other balls that could have been picked off). Overall, it was a lackluster performance, certainly not a game that highlighted our #1 ranking, but………..

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 85th game tonight for the Red & Black. He currently boasts a 70-15 record and a 0.8235 winning percentage, having carded his seventieth win overall over the Kent State Golden Flashes.

At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 85th game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldogs loss to Auburn in the tenth game of the 1971 season, giving Coach Dooley a record of 58-23-4 and 0.7059 percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 66-19 (0.7765) after a loss to Tennessee.

Eighty-five games into his head coaching career Kirby Smart is four games ahead of Coach Mark Richt and ahead of Coach Vince Dooley by 12 games. As of now, he is holding his own versus the two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.

As always . . .

Go ‘Dawgs !!!!
