    Not to mention we aren't the only school that loses players. Check out their depth chart it's full of seniors and they have 3 juniors that are likely first round picks. I think we stand a chance

    Looks like we will never face J. Clowney, not unless we go to the SECCG against USCe.

    Would be an interesting match up for CK.

    Schedule is pretty easy looking right now, if AJ comes back, i like our chances of being right in the mix for the SEC and national title again.

    I'm by no means saying that A&M is a pushover,but I just cant see us making the same dumb mistakes again. As for Ole Miss I'm not sold on Hugh Freeze just yet because there was the same talk going into year two for Nutt after an overacheiving first season. I'm more concerned with Rocky Top because they have a talented team that is just itching at the bit to make a statement.

We also get a bye before Lsu. Honesty none of the other games really scare me. Maybe ole miss is the scariest of them all based on how they played us this year and improved during the year. The east slate is a joke and so is the out of conference outside of va tech who was awful this year.

    It's about as good as you can ask for an sec schedule.
    I think we would've played ole miss a lot tougher if the game had started before 8 that night. Nobody was really in that game. It was just an odd game overall.

    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 think you are overselling A&M and underselling Bama. I have my crimson colored glasses off and I see Manziels line diminished and 3 of his Wr's( including Swope) gone. I think Manziel is a phenomenal player but the only reason our defense had fits was because of his WR's ability to stretch the field. Yes he gashed us on runs but he mostly beat us through the air. Also not ot mention that our play calling cost us and the fact we were coming off a very emotional game down in the Bayou. I just dont see us not winning at College Station

    a pretty interesting schedule. If we finish our business against ATM, we could be running for another NC next year.

    Agreed but maybe they'll overlook us.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    Alabama's 2013 schedule finalized

    Johnny Football is set up for a Sophomore Slump if there ever was one. Losing your line is so tough in this league on both sides of the ball. That and the fact that both seasons could hinge on a game so early. It is a big PLUS for both that each could recover from a loss. If UGA can recover from a 35 point blasting it can happen for anyone.

    Bama was not negotiating with VT for either game. They were negotiating with the Atlanta Sports Council. And the ASC was not initially negotiating with VT for the 2013 game. The ASC originally had a tentative agreement with USC to play in either 2013 or 2014 (their choice) and the USC preferred opponent was Bama. Therefore, the ASC was negotiating with Bama for both years because they did not know which year USC would choose. When USC bailed out with the HC and AD changes, the ASC had to look elsewhere. Bama wound up being contracted for both years. VT in 2013 and WVU in 2014.

    I totally agree.

    Those games are exactly why the 12th game WAS added. The rule that restricted playing 1AA teams only once every four years was abolished on the exact same day the 12th game was added.
