            Clemson doesn’t play another ranked team. They’d still crush whoever, just like Alabama will. I do agree with Bama not going to other people’s house. I wonder how many teams don’t return Alabama’s calls?

              Because 1 or 2 losses eliminates teams.

                      Love how Colin talks trash about Alabama schedule again. When he had urban Meyer on the show he talked about how urban Meyer went all out of his way to make a tough schedule .
                      Please go back and look at every single year that Meyer was as Ohio state lol.

                        LOL, look at Clemson's schedule. The ACC is weak. BAD weak. Citadel beats Georgia Tech. Kansas beats Boston College. V Tech squeaks by V Tech, but let's just talk about Tennessee and Alabama's schedule.

                                  10 billion dollars over 70000 years is a lot of money ! I would buy into a trust fund and system like that ! And do certain things that are righteous with God and the justice system for the actual true wrong doing parties and persons.

                                                Funny how Helton wins two games and now people think he is the second coming. Just last year the SC fan base was calling for his head. Stockholm Syndrome.

                                                                        Because this is the same conference who talks about how tough their conference is yet they lose to Group of 5 and Power 5 conference is OOC games, while their major teams play FCS schools and Top 100 Group of 5 teams.

                                                                        Because this is the same conference who has consistently cancelled scheduled games with big Power 5 schools.

                                                                        Because this conference has the most controversial national championships and playoff appearances over the last 15 years.

                                                                        Washington State who went 11-2 and finished 10th isn’t even ranked to begin the year.

                                                                        Where’s the logic on that?

                                                                          Alabama has had a big non conference game every year except this season. They have USC in 2020, Miami in 2021, Home and Home vs Texas in 2022&23. Wisconsin home and home, Notre Dame home and home, West Virginia home and home. So Alabama is going to play a marquee non conference opponent every year. We owed Duke a game any way. Sorry their Star QB went in the draft. The issue with the FCS schools is due to the lack of independent schools, after the SEC expanded in 1992 a There were around 40 to 50 Independent schools that could be scheduled easily, that includes Penn State, Miami, FSU, Most of what is now the ACC. There is only a handful today. With some conferences playing 9 conferences games it limits the scheduling even more as most programs want 8 home games, and with a unbalanced conference line up it makes it even harder. The bottom line is scheduling is way harder now, games are lined up 5 to 10 years down the road.

There is some exceptions as some SEC teams have rivalry games against teams in the ACC, Florida vs Florida St, Clemson vs South Carolina, Georgia vs Ga Tech and Louisville vs Kentucky. Prior to 1992 they were playing Penn State the 6th or 7th game of the season. Go back and look at the schedules and you can see for yourself, as conferences expanded it made scheduling non conference games much more difficult. As for G5 teams not many get ranked anyway and with scheduling a team that might be really good now, in 5 or 6 years they are a different team. Alabama has South Florida on their schedule in a few years, It is most likely a two for one deal.
