    It is 100% feigned outrage by our AD to appease our fans.

    They've known since May this was going to be a day game.

    If Bama would quit playing football we wouldn't have this issue

    No. I don't know what its like sitting in 90° + heat in Neyland during September. Doesn't get hot in Tennessee.

    And I admit I misread the deal about 10&2. I was wrong about Georgia. They are however leading the race to playing 2-3 P5 teams + 8 conference games.

    Regardless if Bama is the only school willing to vote for a 10&2 model, it ain't passing soon. They aren't scheduling more than one P5 right now.

    We’re voting for 9 conference games...something everyone else should be fully in favor of, but aren’t for some reason. Once again, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal to ask for a shitty night game once in a while.

    We've been trying to do 9 for a while. Saban is on the record wanting 10 SEC games with 2 P5 OOC games.

    Not sure what is bullshit about that.

    Saban was the only coach to vote in favor of 9 conference games a few years back. I think since then Malzahn has come out in favor of 9, but nobody else.

    What's everyone else's problem with 9 conference games?

    Alabama was the only team that voted for a 9 game schedule when it came up in 2014. I think Gus recently came out in favor of it as well, but I could be misremembering. You’re way off base here.

    So again, why don't the rest of you scared pussies want 9 conference games?

    though I agree it's an incredibly silly thing for our AD to bitch about

    Don't think there is a big deal with that at all. And the facts are, thats already happening. Been 3 years since your 1st early season home game with an early kick, 2nd in the past 5 years. Pretty much Once in a While, which isnt the same as this:
    Not enough afternoon/night slots for 1 of the 14 teams to get it that 1 or 2x a year, every year.

    But no doubt the SEC Office factors in requests like that into scheduling. We know that schools basically get 1 big scheduling request filled from the Conference, quid-pro-quo some other sacrifice. [E.g. Auburn getting LSU right before Bama so they could play Georgia earlier in the year.] Granted, the TV companies dictate times for ratings more than the Conference.

    That's fine, but we have only gotten 1 night start since 2014 with 11 day starts.

    LSU has had 11 night starts in that span.

    It doesn't have to be perfectly equal, but it could be more fair than that.

    I think we’ve had one September ooc kick at 6 or later in the past 5 years, against Colorado State iirc. I don’t think Saban gives a shit either way, other than it would get way more fans in the seats, so thy will be done.

    Because y'all are the worst match up in the league vs San Jose St. It will take the least amount of eyes off the UGA-ND game.

    Given how good LSU looks, I wonder if CBS regrets selecting ND/UGA? I assume not because ND will bring in a ton of eyes, but it’s damn near impossible to see that being a competitive game. You could probably say the same about Bama/LSU too though, so maybe it’s a wash.

    Attendance for the early September kicks is pretty terrible at times. Obviously not an issue for conference games.

    I'm all for nine conference games in a perfect world, but why would the SEC want to make it harder to get teams into a four-team playoff? The fact is you have programs like Clemson and to a lesser extent Ohio State and Oklahoma who are playing much, much weaker schedules.

    Kirby clearly thinks there will be an eight-team playoff relatively soon and he's scheduling accordingly.

    Nobody made y’all play a neutral site game. :idk: I bet it was a lot more comfortable than any other game that day.

    Regardless, it was still well over 90 at 6 pm last weekend. It was going to be miserable either way.

    I'm not complaining. I'm all about day games in September when I'm watching at home.

    I just pray the Ole Miss game is a night game because I'm going to that and want to see the new lights.
