I imagine this year we were already making some preparations for Georgia that week because the Barn was also like a scrimmage.
It would be nice to have the first off week after a few games, but all in all it looks like a favorable schedule to make a run a back to back to bacxk titles.

Well, our schedule is set up for another championship run. We've gotta make it count!
I really think we will not be challenged until the SEC championship and heres why.
Va Tech isnt as good as they had hoped to be by this time.
TXS A&M will lose key people on the offensive line along with swope (i think)
LSU will be losing big play makers in Mingo and Montgomery along with a few recievers.
Our defense will be way more experienced.
I know Johnny Football is coming back but if people would look closer it wasnt all him doing it. I think they are in trouble if they cant fix that line and fix it quick.
I think LSU will be the biggest fight in the regular season but UF/UGA is the only team I think really poses the biggest and most forseeable threat to a title run outside of big injuries.
“There's not too much to say. Alabama thoroughly beat us. They are a better team. They were coached better, they played better, and they looked like they will have a big season. They have a heck of a team.”
