    I don't know where you have been since the rest of the nation has sobered up after the jubilation of Clemson thumping Bama, but all I have heard since then was how pathetic Bama's non conference schedule for this season is, and for that matter schedule period. I know if I am tired of hearing about it coach Saban has to be too.

    I'm curious how many CNS PCs you've seen over the years? This is not him being "obnoxious" at all. He's very well known for having similar "lectures" to the press.

    Let’s face it. CNS saw this question for what it was; a thinly veiled version of “why aren’t you playing a tougher opponent?” Funny, you think Lincoln Riley was asked a similar question after their South Dakota victory? You think the lead in question next week for other coaches playing G5 cupcakes will be “why aren’t you playing someone better?” Probably not.

    It’s old. It’s tired. CNS has stated time and again his preference for playing an all Power 5 schedule with a minimum of 9 conference games. They (media) need to let it go.

    The “attendance” questions need to go away as well. It is well established CNS wants capacity crowds that are there to the end. But CNS doesn’t control that, nor the conference tv schedule, nor the weather. All he can do is have his team prepared to play at the time and on the day scheduled. And by the way, attendance at games across college football is an issue, not just at Alabama. It is only made worse when games against “Cupcake U.” are played in the middle of day when heat indexes are not only extreme, but dangerous as well.
    If you want an answer to that question, go ask Byrne about that. If they want to know why the conference insists “frying” Alabama fans in September afternoon games, go ask Sankey.

    Ask. Better. Questions.

    And they need to be lectured. Apparently they never got that from their professors while pursuing their degree. A Cecil Hurt is extremely rare.

    The other one regarding centers was outright obnoxious answer ... nobody knew that Dickerson is playing center becos both centers were injured. I follow pretty closely and I didnt know Chris Owens was injured. Also it was valid question since they were shuffling on Oline due to Duke ineptitude.

    MAybe he was angry with how the game went or something
    I really don't have any issues with his answer after the game. There was rumors that week that Dickerson was going to start... so it wasn't well kept secret....

    Do people every listen closely to Cecil? You can tell Cecil has earned CNS’s respect over the years. Cecil will ask quality questions with the intent of really “wanting to understand” and gain insight and knowledge about the team, the program and the players. CNS gets it and actually appreciates it.

    Some of these guys are only thinking about “how can I ask him a question that makes me look smart?” {go back to the bonehead during fall camp that asked him about “12 package” or in the “20 package” or something along those lines}.

    Many could learn a bunch from Cecil.

    As has been said above, the question was basically snarky. If the questioner is so dense that he didn't realize that it was, then perhaps he's in the wrong profession. The rest of the problem is that Saban has been beaten over the head with it literally for months now - and giving the same answer - that we can only play the teams which will agree to play us. Despite all the "we want Bama" crap, there's not a long line waiting on the opportunity. It's the reason neither of Saban's scheduling proposals has a chance. Teams don't want the nightmare of being ordered to play Bama. If the questioner didn't anticipate what was coming then he deserved what he got...

    Well said.
