    Also there center, 3 WR's listed as starters on depth chart, starting TE, one of their top RB's, 3 out of 4 linebackers if Moore goes pro, FS, CB, and DT. All of those are listed as starters except the RB.

    If AJ returns, the main question will be replacing three all-star OL. If he doesn't, it's probably not going to be a championship year anyway.

    The last few years we've scheduled one of these teams before Auburn. It basically gives us an off week with a scrimmage.

    I imagine this year we were already making some preparations for Georgia that week because the Barn was also like a scrimmage.

    Yeah, I don't think we could ask for a more favorable schedule than that! (It's about time!)

    I understand what you're saying, but its hard to schedule better quality teams because they want a home & home.

    And why couldn't we have done a home and home with Virginia Tech if we were just going to play them twice in Atlanta anyway?

    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.

    Because this year's game wasn't schedule when the 2009 game was.

    Atlanta is better for recruiting then Blacksburg.

    Saban has said multiple times he likes these games in neutral locations as they're high profile and typically in areas that we want a recruiting benefit...

    Which is fine, but people don't need to come on here and complain when there are empty seats at these games.

    Re: Alabama's 2013 schedule finalized

    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.

    For once we get a break in scheduling.

    The difference is that we have to go to College Station...not the easiest place to play. I think that will be the toughest non-LSU game next year. Though I do think that Ole Miss could be sneaky difficult next year.
