    Just for the record, Louisiana Tech is ranked by Sagarin as #99, while Duke is #51, so La Tech is doggier dog shit than Duke is. (if you were saying Texas and Ok State are far better than Duke, you'd be correct, but I'm not sure the relevance of OK State in that comparison)

    Bama's SOS is actually stronger than LSU's at the moment, though to me it makes no difference playing the #75 team vs. the #150 team, but it does to SOS rankings.

    Bama's 4 opponents so far: 35, 51, 87, and 156.
    LSU's 4 opponents so far: 12, 84, 104, 222

    I said that a couple of weeks back. Right now -We are Oklahoma with a Miss St level defense. We’ll be pretty good though if / when everyone gets healthy.

    I think we'll be pretty good if we stop losing so many players and if our FR and RS-FR develop as they should. Pretty good, not great.

    Your illustrious soul mate, the foul mouthed Pop said TX wasn’t any good because they barely beat OK State. Please don’t get foul mouthed like him.

    You are also right in the 75 to 150 reference. I fully agree. I also think regardless of ranking Vanderbilt might beat everybody on your schedule to date including South Carolina. That game might be pick’em. I still not convinced LA Tech might not beat or at least give Duke a close game.

    It’s still a dog meat schedule until you play somebody as tough as TX. Look at it. Every team on your list is dog meat.

    I will also state for the record that when I predicted TN would hardly ever be more than mediocre because recruiting had changed I was right. Everybody jumped me. Time has proved i was correct. The traditional opponent was just to keep AL from playing FL and Ga as much as they would and risk losing a game. It was also keep LSU and AU playing the toughest opponents in the SECE by playing FL and GA every year.

    Saban says AL wants to play tougher opponents. Then why don’t AL get rid of the traditional opponent? Then SEC can play the 9 SEC game schedule he talks about. Even in those season opening games AL plays an opponent like Duke. You need to toughen your schedule.

    You can keep banging on this all you want, but Duke was a one-time thing because Bama couldn't find a better team to fill that void. Since Saban has been here

    @Bill_D you really should consider trying to have an idea about what you’re discussing before you start making shit up.

    Par for the course with you.

    The DYNASTY haters schedule argument is total bullshit anyway as we ALWAYS have to play 4-5 consecutive playoff worthy teams at the end of the season to win CPF... every time. The de facto NC game has been the SECCG several times.

    So it had nothing to do with the traditions of the 3rd Saturday in October? It had nothing to do with keep a rivalry alive? They only did it to screw LSU and others over?

    Poor Bill...you are obviously a victim here.

    So if Alabama stops playing UTk, that'll open the door to 9 game SEC schedules? That's the obstacle we must overcome? Do you realize how stupid that sounds? It sounds that stupid because it's a dumb fvcking thing to say imho.

    Only Duke counts. Bill needs to feel cheated and you're cheating him out of it.

    Lest we forget, this was perfectly acceptable when Tennessee was good at football and bammer was not.

    GOAT stupid comment for Bill. I remember Ucheat being a battle every single year in 70-80-90s... LSU was like a homecoming game and we usually named the score until “TheOne Who Left Them “ Arrived.

    Once again- LSU football was a fvcking joke for 30 yrs. someone needs to look up the records during those years.. it would be a hoot.

    According to Bill, Gerry Dinardo was a better coach than Saban.

    Look at the games from 2012 2019. Look at the results. Not a one had a chance to stay close with Bama and everybody knew it.

    As I said check those neutral site games . I will admit though Saban right. It is hard to get somebody decent to come there and be cannon fodder for AL.

    Does that include the last EIGHT vs LSU. You should have gotten better players and coaches. You always said they had better talent AND coaching.

    The results haven’t pretty much the same in the 5 years of playoffs. Did the selection committee make 20 mistakes?

    Which coach has the best record vs Top 10 teams?.. say it.

    Compared to Bama? Not very often...but that's sort of the trick, no? We've been the standard for more than 10 years.

    Our schedule is light this year. Most years it isn't unless you're measuring Bama vs our opponents because were a shitload better than most teams.

    You were provided a list above of our marquee OOC opponents above. Feel free to ignore that and remain ignorant if you must. And we didn't just recently start playing UT. They suck now and you're always crying about that. I'm sure you were much happier when Bama played UT every year in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's however.

    Florida hasn't exactly been a powerhouse lately either ftr. But either way we've beaten LSU's ass head to head over the last 8 years so your bitching makes no sense.

    You said if Bama wants a 9 game SEC schedule then we should stop playing UTk. That didn't make sense...it still doesn't.

    If LSU wants Bama to play tougher schedules, corn on the cob potatoes. And yes, that sentence makes as much sense as yours did.

    Because Bama is MUCH better than the average team. If LSU played the same teams you'd be more than satisfied with the level of opposition. Your double standard is based on the fact that Bama is good and these reputable football programs couldn't hang with us.

    Neither could LSU over that time frame, lol. This is why we say you have LATAS.

    Bill, review this list of past and future opponents and tell us Bama doesn't attempt to challenge itself. Do it with a straight face. If you do, I'll assure you that I won't have one.

    2007: Florida State (neutral)

    If we beat the ever loving shit out of all of these teams, Bama will still have made an effort to schedule quality opponents. There isn't a sliding scale because Bama is better than most teams. That's beyond ridiculous.

    South Carolina would probably be a 2 TD favorite over Vanderbilt if that game was today.

    Duke would be a 10-14 point favorite over Vanderbilt, and more over LA Tech.

    Since losing to Alabama, Duke has won 3 straight, including 41-18 @ Middle Tennessee (a La Tech like team) and last night at VT they won 45-10. A VT team that is probably better than Vanderbilt.

    Depends on what kind of waffles. Blueberries on the heels of corn on the cob potatoes sounds like a Michael Symon combination. Professional type meals, IMO
