I found it interesting to see that the big three in the west mostly have a bye week before they play each other. But then again, I wasn't thinking about all the hype and cash that brings in for each game.
Bama vs aTm - week 3 of the season and both will probably be in the top 5. aTm plays rice and sam Houston state (basically a bye). bama plays va tech then a bye. this plays out better for aTm IMO. 2 cupcakes then bama while bama has a tough first game. if they struggle against va tech, it'll put a lot more pressure on them at a rowdy kyle field.
LSU vs bama - after our early season gauntlet, we get our first much needed bye before the week 11 game (furman the week before that will help too). bama also has a bye and tennesse the week before. both teams could be coming into the game with a loss. bama could be undefeated and #1. we could be undefeated too but the media bama love will have them ranked higher. regardless it'll be the game of the week in Bryant denny.
LSU vs aTm - this works out great for us. bye week, bama, bye week, at home for aTm. on the other side, they play moo state, bye then us. I love our chances in this game. depending on what happens with bama, we could be hosting espn's game day.
LSU vs TCU - last but should've been first I guess (this game doesn't worry me so it's last). they lost to iowa state, texas tech (3 OT), OK state, Kansas state, Oklahoma and Michigan state. TCU won't have any idea what our offense will do and neither do we. the defense is usually ahead of the offense. But, I think les and cam will show them some new wrinkles. On the other side, they have some big boys up front but they can't handle our D line. We roll easily on national TV. TCU schedule Bama schedule aTm schedule
I can't wait for this season. It could be special but it will definitely be fun.
