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

    I've been wondering why no official announcement...good info, thanks. I much prefer home/home over neutral site games. Part of the allure is going to a new game day atmosphere. I cherish my experiences in T-town, Knoxville, and Tallahassee to name a few. I miss Lincoln.

    I've been around a few and think you are right.

    I don't. Though I will say Omaha is really a nice city to be in from May- July.

    TBF Their 55 and up fans are some of the best that youll meet, and what many older fans here remember and think highly of their fanbase. But I think all the blown championship runs in the 80's, the run in the 90's, and the drought since has made some of the worst fans you'll find in this country. The only worst fans Ive met are Michigan and UGA fans.

    I hate that these games are pushed so far out into the future. One of my most favorite football memories, even though it ended in disaster for us, was that 2002 game in Norman. You guys jumped out to a big lead, but then we mounted a comeback for the ages. Rinaldo Works (and an untimely Watts fumble) did us in at the end, but that was still an amazingly fun game. We held our own the next year in Tuscaloosa as well, despite being very out manned.

    What is stupid about playing games in your own stadium?

    You are absolutely correct. Based on talent alone, those OU teams should have beaten us soundly both times, yet both games were very close.

    I think (hope) he meant the 8 year gap H/H. That is stupid.

    I agree on that point. If you are doing home/home, it should be in consecutive years or no more than two years apart.

    The gap was severe in 2003, Mike Shula's first season. But we were not that far apart in 2002. We had NFL talent all along the DL: Kindal Moorehead, Jarrett Johnson, Kenny King, and Antwan Odom. These all may not have been 10 year NFL starters, but they were all talented enough to be drafted and make rosters. I remember Johnson having a long career with the Ravens. We had guys like Justin Smiley, Evan Mathis, Wesley Britt, and Alonzo Ephraim on the OL. Smiley and Mathis had productive NFL careers. So at least the lines were well matched. Then we just had a lot of gutsy guys like Watts, Ahmad Galloway, Lane Bearden, Charlie Peprah, etc.

    That was a really tough, blue collar, hard nosed team. Which makes me hate that HC all the more as I type all this out, for the way he did them in at the end of the season. Dishonorable doesn't even begin to describe. Forgive my tangent.

    Anything other than consecutive years is stupid.

    Conjecture on my part about the neutral site games, but I can't imagine what else would be holding up the announcements.

    I agree. The Iowa State connection already puts them in Big 10 territory also. Any future additions to the SEC are likely to come from North Carolina, Virginia, or some other state that was once part of the Old South/confederacy. Oklahoma does not fit that bill and will likely follow Texas anyway.
