I wish he would go a step further and tell the nation that the schedule maker for the SEC is a Bama graduate and former Alabama athletic dept employee.

...meanwhile, Alabama chokes against A&M and still wins the National Championship.

I don't disagree that LSU fans can be whiny bitches. I hate our fan base the majority of the time. But, the complaints about the schedule are problably the worst example that you could think of to prove that point.

LSU fans have a very valid complaint whether you want to admit it or not.

You are wayyyyyyyyyyyy to late.

ESPN noting the "what da frick" nature of the SEC out of division schedule in reference to LSU is a good thing.

Too bad our own SEC office seemed totally unaware of what was going on.

I really don't understand why the media both around the SEC and the nation has not jumped on this.

The media normally likes these kind of stories.

That makes no sense. That's like playing a baseball game where one team is only allowed one strike, and then you say, "well, if y'all would've hit the ball, you probably would have won."

Beating Bama, alone, would not have gotten us anywhere. We still would have had to beat all but one of Florida, A&M and South Carolina (which we did, accomplishing more than Bama did in its season). All Bama had to do was beat us, and they could still afford to lose to A&M because they didn't have any other tough teams. And the schedule was (and continues to be) set up for them to be able to lose to us and still win it all because the odds of us going 10-1 or better against the murderer's row we have to face are extremely remote. If we lose to them, we are boned because they are set up to make it nearly impossible for them to lose two other games. And besides, even if they lose to us and we go undefeated, they are still set to win it all because their schedule makes it fairly easy for them to win all the rest of their games just like 2011.

Apologists for bullshite, people that want to blame their own team when they get screwed, that's just so inferior imo. It doesn't take much to stand up for people who are getting screwed, especially when you are supposed to be on their side. It takes nothing at all, no brains, no courage, no guts, nothing, to hide behind excuses because you're afraid of how you'll "look" to everyone else.

Catch-22. If you complain, you're whiny.
Incorrect. A Catch-22 is a system where the rules screw you no matter what you do. There is no "rule" that people who complain are whiny. That is purely a subjective opinion, in this case one created by people with an agenda of intimidating people into accepting bull shite. Just because they say it does not amount to any reason whatsoever for anyone to give a billionth of a shite about it.

If you or your team are being screwed, you goddam well better complain about it. And if anyone calls you "whiny" for it, then they are just worthless, pathetic, spineless fricks who are either doing the cheating, or enjoying the fruits of it because they (and/or their teams) lack the balls to face you (or your team) in a fair contest like men. So just laugh at the puny fricks and don't give them any thought because they are not worthy of it.

That's funny because I guarantee you whine about something LSU. Just because fans want fair scheduling and are vocal about it doesn't mean they are complaining.

The revolution, "muckrakers", civil rights brought out the truth caused change.
Scheduling isn't important like those things were but it is unfair in our conference and it needs to be changed.

From the Gump Sports Board--talking about a 3-peat


We have a lot coming back and an easy schedule for 2013. I think there's a good possibility that we will be back in the NCG come next January.

SEC fans need to remember stuff like this when worrying that some team in another conference might make the BCS CG.


So, Georgia was taken off the Alabama schedule and added to the LSU schedule while Kentucky was added to the Alabama schedule?

What east team had been on the LSU schedule and taken off so the SEC could add Georgia or had Georgia always been there?

re: Chris Low (ESPN): All SEC Schedules Aren't Created Equal


While I agree beating Alabama would have helped our swagger, there's no way we beat the UGA that played against bama, and who frankly was a coin flip to win in the last moments of the SECCG. We were clearly worse and they were clearly better than the teams that played each other one year ago.
