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.

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!

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

I'm not going to worry too much about 2020 right now.

Sure that schedule looks tough on paper but we have no idea what our own team will look like much less our opponents.

We will most likely lose Tua, Jeudy, Ruggs III, Smitty, and maybe Najee on Offense. That's a lot of Firepower.

But we will still return plenty of skilled talent. The big question is who takes over for Tua?? My guess is it's a battle between Taulia and Mac.

But Fromm will be gone from UGA and who knows who will be AU and LSU's QB's??

USCw hasn't been a scary team for a while now either.

I think we'll be okay and especially IF we can finally have a year with ZERO coaching staff turnover.

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..
IF we lose to UGA in the third game of the year then the rest of our opponents for the year will be cursing Georgia because they will awaken a sleeping giant. I do not care about losing all that experience. CNS is one of the best at using failure to motivate his players. I would imagine a very mean team the rest of the year. As far as playing the Barn after A&M I am not particularly worried. I'm not even sure Malzahn will still be the coach in 2020.

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.

In 2021 we will play at Florida ...not Georgia. We finish at A&M and at AU. The SEC let AU out of finishing with back to back SEC road games every other year and now Bama and LSU must finish with back to back road games every other year. The SEC gave into the whiny AU.

We actually do not know the exact dates for 2021 just yet. Maybe they will move others around? I doubt it but we can hope.
