Nick Saban Wasn't Happy With This Schedule Question After His Team's Blowout Saturday
Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports
Nick Saban was asked about Alabama's scheduling after his team domination of New Mexico State 62-10 on Saturday. "Scheduling" wasn't something the Crimson Tide head coach wants to talk about anymore...

Nick is right. And I bet he would like to play 10 SEC games; that guarantees favorable calls from SEC officials in 10 out of 12 games.

Norte Dame might be stupid enough to play them again

Is he afraid of a rematch with ULM?

Start following the rules and everyone will line up to beat Bama's irrelevant butt.

Nick Saban is right. Nobody wants to step foot in that shithole state. He’s told me more than once how stupid the population there is.

If Alabama was going 6-6 every season, teams would be lining up to play.

He answered that question like my alcoholic uncle would answer a question during the holidays once the liquor starts kicking in. Civil at first, then he gets a little perturbed

Please let some Power 5 schools call UA out on this bull crap.

Call them out? Nobody wants to play Alabama, he's right. They are not knocking down the door to go for a home and home.

I'd love to have Clemson schedule a home and home.

About every school has people saying they want Bama.

how about taking on Troy, ya a-hole?

He infers that no one wants to play them, but never says they have reached out to power 5 schools to schedule home and home series. If this is the case, then that would explain the weak OOC schedule, but I doubt this is true. It also doesn’t take into account how come they are scheduled against the two strongest east teams, Florida and Georgia less than anyone else in the west.

Cant wait for some power 5 team to call his bull shite and say we tried to play them but they turned us down.

B4M4 won’t even address in-Conference schedule issues, let alone out of conference issues. “Though it’s clear that Tennessee, from the SEC East, has the biggest disadvantage by having Alabama as its permanent cross-division opponent from the West, the bigger picture involves LSU. Basically, while the Tigers – who get Florida annually – are squaring off with the fourth-strongest program in the entire conference and the second-best from the East, the Crimson Tide are playing the third-worst team in the SEC.”

I guarantee you that there's a Power 5 team out there that would play you, Nick. You can run that bull shite on the press in Alabama, but the rest of us are onto you.

Bull shite. LSU plays a top ten team every other SEC school played a cream puff.

There was this A&M vs #1 Clemson game Saturday. East/West divisional set up needs to be dumped or start playing 10 SEC games to at least try to level the degree of difficulty in conference and end all the rent-a-wins.

Ya I’m calling bull shite Nick. Man how I would love to just smack him across his face in the middle of that rant.

And why does Alabama always have a bye week the week before LSU? "I have nothing to do with that" but I respect Coach Saban, he's right...about the Power 5 issue...but it does help bring interest for the small schools to come play on the big stage...and who isn't interested in an upset>?/

Does LSU not have their bye week before Bama? The timing of the Bama LSU game is such that it works for both teams to have their bye week before that game

So, the one with a statute on campus has NOTHING to do with scheduling. Uh huh. Yeah right. This is the kind of response you get from someone who thinks he smarter than everyone else in the room. LOL!
Reply12 months
What he was implying is that he cannot make other schools play them, not that he is not involved in Bama's scheduling. That was pretty clear.
