I'm hard pressed to agree with you. I point to Cecil Hurts' tweet (paraphrased): "since 2014 Alabama has had 12 non-conference September games in BDS and only 1 has been at night. During the same period LSU has also hosted 12 non-conference games and all 12 have been at night."The Conference is not letting its broadcasting partners do something that harms the Conference. The question is how long Alabama continues to quietly suck it up for the good of the "team". I just wanna make sure folk know this is not some sort of Alabama vendetta... the Conference is looking after the health of the conference.
No team has played more September day games than Alabama. If it is not a vendetta, it certainly has all the characteristic of a bias, and an indefensible one at that. Similar to the open date before playing Alabama issue that existed for so long. We only got relief by calling out the conference leadership in public. Apparently we're taking that approach again to attempt to resolve yet another inequity imposed by 'The Conference' and it's partners.
