| SEC Rant|| re: A&M supports LSU's desire to not play UF every year - noladan on 5/21/13 at 10:56 am|
These schedule threads are pointless and redundant.
LSU fans say they want "fair" scheduling as often as possible. Fans of those schools that have rivals from the other division call LSU fans whiners.....We're on page 10 of that here, and we have multiple threads just like this every day.
| More Sports Board|| re: Who are the sleeping giants in college football? - noladan on 5/20/13 at 3:24 pm|
Yeah, I think some people are confusing "sleeping giant" with a program that's just going through a down cycle, (while others are really reaching with their suggestions). I mean, LSU was a legit sleeping giant 15 years ago. We had some success and history but had never consistently reached the level...
| SEC Rant|| re: What would A&M's record be this year if JFF gets hurt? - noladan on 5/20/13 at 10:34 am|
I would guess 8-4 or 9-3. Really even 10-2 would be possible..... To say they have a favorable schedule is an understatement.

Your pods are very similar to the ones I suggested a few pages back. Only major difference is that I separated UF and UGA so that each pod gets one of Alabama, LSU, UF, UGA.
UF and UGA could be permanent cross pod opponents (assuming that sort of thing is implemented)....
