    My thoughts, exactly.

There is no question that a move to the SEC West would make sense from a natural rivalry standpoint but it would seem that such a move would require the Tide to move to the SEC East. Such a move, along with Auburn, would probably not sit well with Tide fans. A west with Mizzou, Ark., T A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, MSU, OU, & say OSU or even Texas would be a strong division and moving the 2 Ala. schools to the east would strengthen that side of the conference. I'm not holding my breath on such an outcome. If we move, I think it will be to a reconfigured Big 10 west along with Texas. Lots of talk out our way of a possible merger with the PAC-12 or certain members of that conference. There are pros and cons to all these scenarios. And of course, the Big 12 could stand pat. Our strong OOC future schedule may be saying we are staying but strengthening our product so that the home schedule is attractive.

    From a fan perspective... yes
    From a SEC perspective... no

    The SEC is most likely to to try and get a NC school and VA school combo in which markets are very lucrative and they aren’t just getting another Alabama. I think the ideal choice is Virginia and NC st.

    I just can’t muster excitement for a game 13 years away. Wake me up in 2031 and maybe I’ll get excited.

    The news presented this story as “the University is listening to fans who want more home+home series”. Technically yes, but most of us would like it during our lifetime. Seriously, there should be an NCAA rule that you can’t schedule games more than 5 years out. The only reason this happens is because one teams schedules way out, so the next team has to as well, and so on and so on. If everyone was only allowed to schedule 5 years out then it would not be a problem.

    Anyway. The starting QBs for these games are 6-8 years old right now. So, start grooming your boys tidefans dads! My son is way too tiny, he’s no QB. Maybe a kicker but, I think baseball is more his style.

    I think Oklahoma would be a better fit for the Big Ten than the SEC. You could get Nebraska back as an annual opponent.

    Re: Alabama, Oklahoma announce future home-and-home

    Appears several of the P5 schools; Alabama, UGA, Texas, and Oklahoma, among others are preparing for the inevitable 8 team CFP. Expecting SOS to be a major factor in selection of the at-large teams. Hopefully that will be as far out as they are scheduling.

    Didn't include ND in the above because they have always scheduled many years in advance. Which is why, when it was revealed they were in discussion with Alabama, I predicted on here that it would be at least until 2029 before they would even consider scheduling Alabama. Several of you disagreed, and I was wrong. I missed it by ONE year.

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

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

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    I don't - theres no reason to schedule something more than a few years out. It's not like we're sending humans to Mars here, we're scheduling CFB game...

    I'll be 82-83 -- and if family history means anything I'll not be here...none of my grandfathers lived past 65 and my own father died at 77.

    Announcement from UGA and OU may be delayed because they are attempting to be matched in Atlanta and Dallas neutral site games in 2023 and 2031. Which is what they should do. Split year H/H scheduling is stupid.
