    SEC Scheduling (LSU Conspiracy Theories)

    I've been reading some other team's boards (unfortunately), and one of the things the LSU people are up in arms about is that they have to play UGA next year. They say we should have to play them instead of Kentucky. Anyone know anything about this?

    After the way we've been screwed over in this conference, no other team has a right to complain, much less the Hogs...

    So what happened? Did they just rework the schedule to accommodate A&M and Mizzou?

    Alabama playing 6 straight SEC teams off a bye to end the season: A-OK.

    Speaking of schedules, I just noticed we play Chattanooga and Georgia State next season. Is one of them going to be moving up to FBS next year, or are we going to be playing 2 FCS schools? Sorry if this has been discussed already.

    I think GSU will be in the Sun Belt next season like South Alabama this year.

    I think Alabama suffered from the scheduling monster for several years where it added up across consecutive seasons where Alabama played like 14-15 SEC teams coming off their byes. At one point Alabama played 6 consecutive SEC teams coming off their bye.

    I wouldn't bother with too many LSU internet fans. It is quite funny how they commonly call us "arrogant" yet I have found they are about as arrogant as they come. They love the "we play down to our competition" phrase. How convenient. Trust me, it's not that any team is better than LSU. NOOOO!!!! That is impossible. They just "play down to their competition". Anytime they win it's because they are so great. But anytime Bama wins (against any team) go look at their boards. Excuse, after excuse after excuse of how "lucky" Bama was and "they're not really that good" etc. It kills them to say Alabama is good. That is why they come up with all this conspiracy theory mess. Yet I can't tell you how many games I've watched (against other teams besides Bama) where they benefited from non calls or calls that shouldn't have been called on the other team that helped them.

    They've handled success the wrong way. Obnoxious is being kind.

    I was just trying to find out what happened. I'm guessing it has to do with the addition of A&M and Mizzou.

    In 2009, Alabama played 8 SEC teams. 7 of those teams went bowling.

    We also played a 10-win Va Tech team
    We were also the only team to beat not 1 but 2 teams (facing two 13-win teams) - Texas & Florida.

    Number of Alabama fans whining about too tough a schedule or unfair: 0

    Besides, we played Florida last year and everyone said we got off easy! Now we don't play them and we get off easy!

    Remember kids - SEC schedulers are psychic.

    I assume it has something to do with the fact that before A&M and Mizzou came to the SEC our home and home with Georgia would've been this year and next year. They got replaced with Mizzou

    Alabama's SoS was #2 that year. #1 was Miss. State who had to play Alabama...

    In 2010 Alabama had to face an insane number of teams coming off of bye weeks (and I believe all their losses were in fact against teams coming off of bye weeks) and on top of that it was also the 14th most difficult schedule in the country.

    Alabama has had more than their fare share of difficult schedules.
