As for "all the AD's being involved", Aleva specifically denied that he had any sayso whatsoever in drawing up the schedules, for this past yr & next yr. Funny how, in "working around existing scheduled games", bama gets to play 2 teams with a combined 2-14 record & LSU gets to play 2 teams with a combined 14-2 record this past yr. Simply a coincidence I presume.
The SEC office has set Bama up for a 3-peat next fall. They have to go to College Station, but it's early enough in the season that they can make up the ground if they finish strong. They get us in Tuscaloser and avoid Florida, USCe, and UGA altogether. The worst part is that LSU fans are coming off as whiners when all we want is a level playing field. We can hate Bama all we want, but they are experts when it comes to playing the system to their advantage.
