The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Penn State Nittany Lions 24-17 in the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl on Saturday.

Shortly after the game, former UGA head coach Mark Richt congratulated the coaching staff and the players on the win.

No matter your opinion of Mark Richt’s coaching abilities and record, there is no disputing that he is a first-class human being.

Go Dawgs!

    I am hopeful for the new coaching staff but fearful for the day we will rue this decesion.

    This game was not the same with out Coach Richt. To me he was Georgia football. He brought so much more to these young men’s lives. He is a man of God that touches lives where ever he goes. It was hard to feel the same excitement today. Miss you and I know God will richly bless you. Well done good and faithful servant.

    Thank you Coach Richt. I agree with Donna’s post that it is hard to get excited when I am still grieving your loss. I am praying Jesus will use you mightily at the the U.

    There will always be at place in my heart for Coach Richt. I just read on 247 sports that Devon Gales the WR for Southern University has gained some feeling in his knee and feet!!! What an Awesome God we serve!!! Many blessings to Coach Richt and family.
