Richt's Bulldogs ascended to the summit of the Southeastern Conference East Division standings Saturday night when South Carolina fell 44-28 at Arkansas. Georgia, which has not controlled its divisional destiny in November since last winning it in 2005, is alone in the East with a 5-1 league mark but faces longtime rival Auburn this week at Sanford Stadium.
"I know we all understand what's at stake and that we are in a better position now and that we do control our destiny," Richt said Sunday afternoon. "We've been fighting like mad from the moment South Carolina beat us, but the thing that has gotten us this far is, on a weekly basis, just trying to take care of business. Our focus has got to be for every man to do his job."
Auburn will be a big road block to Atlanta. I wouldn't mind hearing about some bad feelings breaking out in practice this week.
