    I hate that game with a passion looking back on it. Just an ugly game all the way around. We were good enough to beat them by 40 but a plodding offense couldn't close the deal on too many drives. And they were good enough physically to make us work, and yeah, we beat the hell out of each other. Nothing good came from that game at all, for either team.

    I think what was lost in that point was that it was a close game between nearly identical teams and that close games usually lead to more injuries. It was never directly about fcs games not having their share of injuries, it was that close games have them more often so why schedule more than 1 good competition game when you have the sec schedule as well. Hell we lost 3 key guys in FSU and LSU game and couldnít stop MSU and Auburn to save our life.

    MO and LSU have the perfect schedules. 4-off-4-off-4.

    12 SEC team schedule

    Saban’s point was Alabama wasn’t challenged in 2018 and complacency cost us a championship. There’s something to be said for learning to overcome adversity before it costs you a ring.

    If winning every is the goal then take your mickey mouse parade to disneyland and give UCF a championship ring.

    Well quiet frankly if he is talking about the quality of the opponent then he is wrong because we played one of the toughest schedules in his tenure here. What cost us a championship is losing 2 of our most important defensive players for the season and having two recruiters as coordinators.

    You must hate the Saban era and love the Shula era with a statement like that. Because winning every game is the goal for championship teams.

    1) I must have been on some serious drugs during the Georgia game - because I was SURE I saw a guy basically lose a Heisman Trophy and go out injured and get replaced by another guy who had been injured the previous two months. Apparently, I was just hallucinating.

    2) I'll tell Saban to make sure we fall behind 21 points every single game early on - that should satisfy you, no?

    So you're saying we should just tank one....????? Maybe sit out that adversity with UGA, something something???

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    Mizzou has Georgia and Florida back-to-back, the first one on the road.


    LSU does have it line up perfectly - they'll still manage to blow one they should win.

    12 SEC team schedule

    We seem to have gotten off topic so let me restate the question.

    How many conference games should SEC teams play to avoid conference realignment when we renegotiate tv rights as speculated in the link below?

    https://247sports.com/college/oklaho...CC--118642101/

    When conference TV rights begin to expire in six or seven years, my Amazon source says that Amazon and Netflix could easily be prepared to spend ten times what the networks are projected to have available.

    My answer - The SEC rules college football. They don't have to change a thing.

    .
    1) conference realignment will not happen because of conference games its going to be because Texas or Notre Dame makes a power move that threatens a conference's ability to generate enough money to keep network deals

    2) Other than having more opposite division games what purpose does adding more conference games? Seriously do you want to suffer what teams like Ohio St and USC/Washington are suffering just to add to entertainment value. Sure if we had a toddler league like the ACC or Big 12 then I would be all for it, but we don't.

    3) Just to humor you... 9 would the most I would be willing to go (But I'm whole heartedly against adding any)

    Netflix may not survive for 6 years with Disney pulling the plug on ALL properties. Amazon is not ready for it, and neither is Hulu. YouTube is probably the only streaming service willing to buy it. I think we are stuck with ESPN and CBS for a long time.

    Netflix generates most of it's own content. Google owns Youtube. The only reason folks still have cable are because of sports.

    And how much of that content was in some way or fashion linked to the Great Mouse? And speaking of the Great Mouse, who do you wager owns ESPN, SECN, and ABC? You really think someone is going to take the SEC from them? The only multi billion dollar asset that I'm aware of that the Great Mouse has ever lost rights to is Harry Potter, and that is more of an exception due to the weird nature of that situation and not the rule.


    And FWIW Disney is launching ITS OWN streaming service to directly compete with Netflix...Gee I wonder who is going to win that
