"At the same time we know that we have a lot at stake and we don't want to forfeit that by going in there against a Vandy team that has played us good every year that I have been here. They are a good ball club."
Gary may say that Vanderbilt is good, but the Commodores have been trying to prove him wrong lately. They lost to Mississippi State earlier this month and dropped a decision to Navy last weekend. Right now they are 1-6 and winless in the SEC.
But Gary says that in order for Georgia to stay in the hunt for the SEC title, the Dawgs must pay attention to the task at hand.
"We are going to have to stay focused and take it week by week instead of looking ahead," he said.
Not doing that has cost Georgia a perfect record.
"I think that's what really got us when we went to LSU. We kind of started looking ahead instead of taking it week by week. Taking things week by week has been working for us," he said.
Gary and the rest of the Dawgs look to keep taking it week by week this weekend in Nashville, even though the schedule seems light before the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
