This is the fifth in a series looking at the 10-year tends of SEC football teams.
Here is a look at Georgia’s 10-year trend.
After a couple of rocky seasons, Mark Richt appears to have put the Bulldogs back on the rails in Athens. Georgia went 8-5 in 2009 and then dropped to 6-7 in 2010. Richt and Co. rebounded for a 10-4 record in 2011 and went 12-2 last season, winning the SEC East title. In fact, Georgia was one botched play away from beating eventual national champ Alabama in the SEC championship game.
Richt, 53, is 67-29 in 12 seasons as the Georgia coach. The former Florida State quarterbacks coach, who had never been a head coach before arriving in Athens, is 67-29 in the SEC. Just once has Richt posted a losing SEC record. That was a 3-5 mark in 2010.
The past two years, Georgia has gone 14-2 in conference play. Georgia’s only regular-season league loss last year was 35-7 at South Carolina.
