The Mark Richt Victory Watch

In a somewhat sloppy seesaw battle pitting contrasting offensive styles on a chilly night in Sanford Stadium, the Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to claim the Red and Black’s ninth win over their in-state rival in their last ten tries.

Consequently, I have the pleasure of reporting that the Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 96. Coach Richt trails Vince Dooley’s all-time school record by 105 career victories.

With 129 games under his belt, Coach Richt sports a 96-33 ledger and a .744 winning percentage. At the same point in their respective careers, Coach Dooley was 84-40-5 (.671) and Wally Butts was 88-34-7 (.709). Coach Butts and Coach Dooley are the only two head football coaches in Georgia history to have guided the Bulldogs in more games than Coach Richt, or to have carded more career victories than Coach Richt. Coach Richt’s office is in a building named for one in an athletic complex named for the other.

The Mark Richt Victory Watch

Georgia

Following a slow start against an overmatched opponent, the Georgia Bulldogs used a trio of interception returns, a 35-point second quarter, and 450 yards of total offense to card an easy victory over Division I-AA Idaho State on a sunny yet chilly afternoon in Sanford Stadium. As has been the case in each of the Bulldogs’ five wins this season, the Red and Black never trailed in a turnover-free 55-7 romp.

Accordingly, it is my pleasure this evening to report that the Mark Richt Victory Watch now stands at 95, placing the Georgia skipper 106 wins shy of tying Vince Dooley for the all-time school record. With 127 games under his belt, Mark Richt sports a 95-32 record and a .748 winning percentage. At the same point in their respective careers, Wally Butts stood at 86-34-7 and .705, while Vince Dooley was 82-40-5 with a .665 winning percentage.
