    1. Probably the toughest on our schedule next year, but we seem to handle these big away games pretty well with CNS
    2. I like the fact that we'll have the "revenge" factor in play
    3. Our defense should be loaded for bear next year!!!

    Yeah...when was the last time that a Saban coached team lost to anyone twice in a row?

    Re: Alabama's 2013 schedule finalized

    It's a favorable schedule to be sure with 2 main games that stand out... but we are losing our two best/experienced DB's in Lester and Milliner. The rest of the secondary has been shaky as all get out this year plus two new guys will be thrown in.

    Because of that I expect the A&M game is a definite loss unless for some reason Manziel can't take the field that day. The LSU game will be a toss-up like usual.

    So I would say we are looking at 11-1 or 10-2. The good news is that the A&M loss would be VERY early and on the road so if it's a close loss it would be forgivable at the end of the year with no more than 1 Undefeated team out there.

    I would certainly take 12-0 all day long....I just don't think you can prepare for or handle Johnny Football.....especially that early in the season with a YOUNG defense. He ad libs plays for 10-20 secs and you just can't maintain coverage for that long....The kid is crazy good.

    I am wondering how you think our defense will be loaded next season. We lose Jesse Williams, Damion Square, and Quinton Dial from the d-line; Nico Johnson for sure from the linebacker unit; and Robert Lester for sure from the defensive backfield. I would think that both C.J. Mosley and Dee Milliner will be leaving early. That is a lot of experience and ability. I am sure that we have younger guys with ability, but losing that much experience will hurt. It is like comparing this year's defense with last year's defense. While the stats are similar, last year's defense was quite a bit better.

    I think we will always be good as long as Saban is here, but I worry about who we lose on defense next year and who we lose on the offensive line. Losing that much on both lines doesn't usually bode well in the SEC when it comes to making championship runs. The good thing is, though, that we never know until we play them on the field.

    Wow, no UF, UGA or USC from the East. That will give TOBC something to scream about.

    That's what stuck out to me. We will definitely be hearing about it soon enough, I can hear it now.

    If I am not mistaken, the Ole Miss game is in Oxford and thus we will play our first three SEC games on the road. I do not ever recall that happening. Or was the Ole Miss game changed to make them come here 2 years in a row?

    Yes. The game stays in Tuscaloosa.

    Bye weeks before our 2 toughest opponents is great. This is a fairly good schedule although I wish Alabama would stop playing teams like Georgia State and UT Chattanooga. It doesn't do much for the team. Sure they give Alabama a break but it wouldn't hurt to schedule in a team like Duke, Iowa State, Kansas or any other FBS team.

    That's a lot less losses than last year and this year we are in the national championship game. I know the defense has been shaky in some big games but we have tons of guys who have contributed on the defensive line this year that should be able to replace those guys. Mosley leaving would be the only thing that worries me about LB. Milliner will be a big loss but Fulton and Geno Smith have showed some ability, Belue will be one more year in the system. We have recruited really well at safety and have a bunch of guys with playing time there already.

    Compared to our losses from last year I think we lose far less on both offense and defense. I know we lose the three OL and Michael Williams but they have known for a long time that those guys will eventually be leaving I assume they will be able to deal with it.

    Definite loss? No way man.

    Manziel had a superb year but he ain't unbeatable. Maybe you're forgetting what WE did to beat ourselves.
