Here's some words to remember if Georgia gets a rematch against Auburn in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
After doing an on-field interview with CBS in the wake of a 40-17 rout of the Bulldogs last Saturday, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn was picked up on the audio saying, "We kicked the dog crap crap out of 'em, didn't we?"

At his weekly news conference on Monday, Georgia coach Kirby Smart was asked about Malzahn's comment.
"When you perform the way they did on the field, you earn the right to say whatever you want," Smart said. "I don't get into what Gus says, and he probably doesn't get into what I say."

Even with that attempt at diplomacy, it's probably not a stretch to surmise that Malzahn's words will be posted somewhere in the Georgia locker room should the No. 7 Bulldogs land another shot at No. 6 Auburn in less than three weeks..
Georgia has already earned a spot in the Dec. 2 league championship game by winning the SEC East, while the Nov. 25 Iron Bowl between the Tigers and top-ranked Alabama will determine the West champion.
