Two stats, via Chip Towers:
… Georgia’s last four coaches — dating back to the early 1960s — averaged six wins in their first seasons. Mark Richt, who went 8-4 in 2001, was the best among them. Jim Donnan went 5-6, Ray Goff 6-6 and Vince Dooley 7-3-1.
Extended over the entirety of the previous century, that number falls to an average of 5.5 wins for first-year coaches…
That takes care of 2016.
Georgia’s average wins in Year 2 under its last two head coaches — 11.5.
The Process versus expectations. That should be a doozy of a battle to track. As we’ve already seen, the schedule won’t be much of an impediment. I guess there’s always the talent gap to blame if they can’t handle Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech again.
