    So we play A&M and AU plays LSU the week before the Iron Bowl. That's.....different. Third game against UGA is a heck of way to start the season..

    Wow can't believe Ut-Martin and A&M games are not switched. At least both A&M and the Aubies are at home but still cant believe the UT Martin game is not played between the two. I am just curious if the Aubies will play a tough game before us or they will get their usual cupcake. The schedule definitely has a trip game or two in there.

    This will be a huge test for the new starter, whomever that might be.

    We'll find out real quick with USC and then Georgia in weeks 1 and 3.

    Then Oct. is a pretty rough stretch.

    This could be a real rebuilding type year with the loss of talent we'll have on offense. I don't think it means we lose lots of games but it'll be a different looking team in 2020.

    BOTH! We are used to rough Novembers, but October has 3 decently tough road games with State at home.

    Re: Alabama announces 2020 football schedule

    I'd describe that as smart scheduling. Looking at probably the two toughest opponents (Georgia and LSU) we see that we have a cupcake game both the week before and the week after Georgia and we have the bye before and a cupcake game after LSU. Good move since we might be a bit beat up physically after those games and thus play lackluster football the week after. It won't matter against the cupcakes. TAMU and Auburn back to back shouldn't be a problem considering they're home games and Auburn has a tough game right before the IB as well.

    Alabama announces 2020 football schedule

    [QUOTE=RollTide_HTTR;3429067]I'm not going to lie. I'm a bit worried about 2020

    I think that schedule stacks up to be pretty brutal as well. I'm a very optimistic fan, but if we finish the season with under 2 losses it will be the greatest coaching job of Saban's career.

    1. We'll likely be in another transitional period on both sides of the ball. There's a 98% chance Tua leaves early, plus potentially dealing with the losses of Harris, Jeudy, Smith, and Ruggs, all who will be draft eligible. Defensively we'll also have our usual draft exodus, so we could be returning as few as 8-10 combined starters.

    2. USC could go either way this year, but a lot of people project JT Daniels as the breakout QB of the year. He's only a soph and next year he'll potentially be in the running as a 1st rd pick. I don't think they will beat us, but that still is likely a huge game against a high-powered offense that requires a ton of focus. Meanwhile UGA opens against UVA and E Tennessee St, which is a significant drop-off in quality. Wouldn't shock me if UGA has a singular focus on us all off-season. (Especially if we beat them again this year) That week 3 game just smells like a loss to me.

    3. Then the last 7 weeks of the season will be one of the toughest stretches in memory. Miss St, @UT, @LSU, FCS, A&M, Auburn, SECCG... That's a lot of trap games, and a gauntlet almost no one could survive unscathed. Wouldn't shock me to take an L somewhere in there as well.

    You can never count a Saban coached team out, and we've seen several times that the committee will consider putting a 2 loss team with the right resume in the playoffs. Plus a lot can change with development, draft stock, the transfer portal, and so many other fluid factors. However, at face value as of right now, this looks like the closest thing to a rebuilding year we've had in years.
