    They don't want to start a series with BYU because the AD thinks it is "too soon for the young Rams team" but they are considering playing BAMA? I guess BYU isn't offering $1 million per game.

    I can see that.

    Seriously, though, it depends upon how you look at it. You go to Bama to play a game and you know that A) you'll get a big paycheck and B) no one will expect you to make much of a game out of it, much less win. You go to BYU to play a game and you know that A) you'll get a smaller paycheck and B) some people will expect you to make a game out of it, and some might even expect you to win it.

    You play the game and lose big to Bama - no one really notices.
    You play the game and lose big to BYU - it could adversely affect the view of your team/program by outsiders, possibly your own fans, and even possibly your own players.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    Hard to get real excited. Not much to gain rankings-wise.

    Agreed. With the new playoffs ahead, CSU doesn't bring much to the table.

    Beats the heck out of Western Carolina. Bama should NEVER play a 1AA team. There are plenty of Colorado States out there.

    I will be so happy to see a 9 game conference schedule that will eliminate one of these type games. Just hope it's a Western Carolina that is eliminated rather than a Western Kentucky or a FAU.

    I was thinking the same thing but geez--give your team and your coach a *little* credit!

    I opened this thread thinking we were bringing CJM back.
    Pronounced as or-e-bama not Obama.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    I would agree with you if All conferences had the strength of the SEC. I think Alabama did their part in scheduling Michigan as the first game folks forget they were ranked 8th now we have Va Tech coming up & who knows about them next year.
    In the SEC we are just beating the heck out of each other but still have3 teams in the top 5.

    Bring on the playoffs the having to hope another team has an upset is tough.

    Playing 8 games now in the SEC is tougher to me than what any other conference has to do.

    Actually, Bama will get more love (albeit not much; but more) in the rankings demolishing Colorado State than they do when they demolish Ga State, Western Carolina, etc.
