    Didn't want to quote your whole post but I agree. Our opinions may all change depending on how this season goes but as of right now I wouldn't be at all shocked if 2020 is the first year we miss the playoffs.

    We will still get crap about 3 of our 4 OOC games but that is a very difficult schedule. I wonder if the TA&M game before the Barn game is a permanent slot.

    I assume our 2021 road games are going to be UGA, MSU, TA&M and the Barn. Pretty brutal if in fact we play UGA in back to back seasons.

    Our rivals will still complain about our schedule and say it is "easy", "cupcake". "Blah blah blah UT Martin."

    Re: Alabama announces 2020 football schedule

    Okay, your reminder of what to expect.



    1) If we lose to Georgia, the parade of "the dynasty is over" crowing cranks up. It'll be as loud as it was in 2015.

    2) If we steamroll this schedule, we'll hear about how we didn't play anybody.

    3) If we lose 2 games - never mind the facts - it becomes, "This is why Alabama has avoided tough scheduling since Saban has been here."

    4) When several teams on this schedule fail to live up to the billing, it will be used against us - and they'll name another foe we "should have played." Remember folks - we played FSU in a "playoff preview" game in 2017 and when the season was over, folks were saying we needed to play UCF.

    Had we scheduled and smoked UCF, of course, these same imbeciles would be saying, "But they were afraid to play FSU."


    But Auburn took the cake here. "Hey, we're tired of having Georgia and Alabama back-to-back."

    SEC: "OK, we'll move Georgia. And HERE'S LSU for ya!"
    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 think this erases all hope of USC luring Urban to the Left Coast to take over their program after the current regime gets run out of town after this season.

    It looks like the whinny AU tigers got their way. Now they don't finish the year with back to back away SEC games every other year. So how did the SEC respond... Now Bama and LSU end every other year with back to back road games. The whinny babies got their way. I don't like Stanky.

    Re: Alabama announces 2020 football schedule

    I was really wondering about that UT Martin game, thinking it must be listed in the wrong spot. But looking at it closer, we are always a bit down the week after LSU, so maybe that game is in the right spot. But A&M and Auburn back to back. VERY interesting finish. Maybe we can get Tua and the Wide Outs to hang around another year!

    Correct. No one ever seems to give us credit for all of the SEC games sandwiched around UT Martin. I guess conference games don't count as quality games, unless you're in the ACC.

    The SEC made the call, not UA. All of the national whining about the down game the week before rivalry week finally paid off.

    Brutal schedule on paper, a year away. And all of this just to accommodate Auburn's complaint of the Georgia game? Ship them to the East division already and be done with it.
