What would really suck is if the Saints are playing the prime time NBC game next year on Thanksgiving.

who cares about thanksgiving anyways

Oh you mean the best holiday of the year? I do.

I don't mind this game too much though. As long as home games won't be on Thanksgiving. Though I would like to make an A&M trip at some point and I'd prefer not to give up Thanksgiving to do so.

I'm serious when I say that LSU should forfeit the first Thanksgiving game. What would the SEC do, give us a harder schedule than other teams in our division? Tell bowl teams to not take us so that they can protect UGA? While focusing on protecting UGA, is the SEC going to start allowing other bowls to take lower ranked teams that we have already beaten ahead of us?


It would be a drastic step, but it might finally shine some light on the screw job that LSU gets from the SEC office every chance they get.


It would also cost the Aggies millions in gameday revenue and tell them exactly how we feel about their tradition. If it was that important they should have stayed in the Big 12.

I'm not even worked up, yet. Last night when I read this I was worked up. I had a good night's rest, and I feel pretty relaxed right now.

Why do people make stuff up like this? Saban doesn't work for CBS. CBS chose LSU/Arkansas every year and then decided to pick Alabama/Auburn and then went back to LSU/Arky in 2011 when LSU was preseason #1.


If you think that CBS would rather show LSU/Arky than the Iron Bowl.

And for throwing out false information like LSU being preseason #1 in 2011.

Oops, LSU was ranked lower than Bama

The Tigers’ game at Texas A&M will be on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27, per the Aggies’ wishes.

LSU will not be playing home games against Texas A&M on Thanksgiving Day, the source said. As has been the case with the LSU-Arkansas game, the Tigers will play the Aggies in Tiger Stadium on Fridays or Saturdays to end the season.


I guess if they want to play on Thanksgiving in College Station then fine, but the minute we start doing that shite in Tiger Stadium it's going to be an issue.

Someone from LSU, either Alleva or Miles, needs to go off on a explitive filled rant about the SEC scheduling. I am going to be serously pissed off if this is true.

LSU can't just sit down and take it anymore.



Agreed. I have no issue with the aTm game being moved to the end of the season, but not on Thanksgiving. It was the one thing LSU said they didn't want, and the SEC ignored it. Wonder if this is backlash from the traction the scheduling issue got at media days?

I personally have always hated the Friday afternoon game. I'm either shopping or hunting, so I always have to figure out a way to get to a TV to watch it. Back in school, it was by far the least appealing game, as most of my friends had gone home for the holiday, and we usually just met up and went straight to the stadium.

To be completely honest, I'm surprised the SEC wants anything to do with that timeslot. Since the NFL added Thursday night games, there's no way college football is competing with that.

This move to LSU/A&M on Thanksgiving started long before Les Miles got vocal about the scheduling this past offseason. It's been coming down the chute since A&M joined the SEC, and LSU has been fighting it.


Isn't it so nice that in 2012, Alabama didn't want to play at A&M because that would mean that their home schedule would be overloaded with big games in even years, but the odd years would leave a boring home schedule, so the SEC allowed Bama to be the only team with 4 divisional home games, and A&M had to travel for 4 divisional road games, instead of the balanced 3/3 like everyone else?


So basically, the SEC office asks for Bama's approval on scheduling, while LSU's requests are repeatedly denied.

I'm not sure how you don't get this. Obviously Alabama and Auburn would rather play a week earlier because they would get a bye before the SECCG. The fact that they had to be ordered by a vote of the other 10 schools to play a week later proves that they were opposed to playing a week later. Just because they didn't put up a fight doesn't mean that they weren't opposed to it.


What part of the highlighted section below are you not getting?

quote:

In 1993 both schools agreed to move the game up to the week before Thanksgiving to give themselves a bye for a potential SEC Championship Game berth, but in 2007 the conference voted to disallow any team from having a bye before the league championship game, returning the game to its traditional Thanksgiving weekend spot.


BAMA wasn't asked to change a tradition...it was asked to return TO a tradition. How is that not clear? Or is your suggestion that anytime the SEC finally steps in an tells BAMA "No" about something suddenly means fairness reigns?

re: looks like we play @ aTm on Thanksgiving in '14, UK in TS


One of the things that ticks me off the most is that it seems like the LSU administrations doesn't even put up much of a fight. Last year about and hour and 15 minutes or so before the Alabama game, I watched Les Miles walk out of the LSU locker room with Mike Slive and they were just yucking it up like old buddies. This was not long after the 2013 schedules had been released. If I was Les I would have told Slive to get the frick out of my locker room and he can go hang out with his pals from Alabama in the visitor's locker room.

All of this playing nice has gotten LSU nothing but the shaft.
