            10 billion dollars over 70000 years is a lot of money ! I would buy into a trust fund and system like that ! And do certain things that are righteous with God and the justice system for the actual true wrong doing parties and persons.

                                          Usc will go as far as the O and D lines take them. They have great talent on both lines but Helton Development of those talents hasn't been great and that's the real issue. The Strength and Conditioning is a huge reason for that.

                                                  Sherman Person Because this is the same conference who says that Group of 5 should never make a championship, but they also shouldn’t leave.

                                                  Because this is the same conference who tells Group of 5 that they should schedule harder, yet their best teams haven’t played the top 4 most consistent Group of 5 teams in 20 years!

                                                  Because this is the same conference who talks about how tough their conference is yet they lose to Group of 5 and Power 5 conference is OOC games, while their major teams play FCS schools and Top 100 Group of 5 teams.

                                                  Because this is the same conference who has consistently cancelled scheduled games with big Power 5 schools.

                                                  Because this is the same conference who has wriggled out of playing statistically better teams in major bowls and championships, while still proclaiming they are the best in the league.

                                                  Because this conference has the most controversial national championships and playoff appearances over the last 15 years.

                                                  @Brian i just don't get all the hatred every year towards bama college teams ever play no more than two tuff oponents...because college football has been imbalanced since i was a kid...usually only two to five good teams every year...and in fact the sec usually has two of them every year for 20 straight years...

                                                  Sherman Person So Georgia keeps their rank because of past seasons, why isn’t the same applies to UCF or Washington State?

                                                  UCF finished in 2017 in the Top 10 at 13-0 and in 2018 in the Top 15 at 12-1 yet to start the year in 2018 they were ranked #22 and to start this year they were #19.

                                                  Explain that logic please?

                                                  Heck Washington won the Pac12 in 2018, yet Oregon who went unranked at 8-5 last season starts ranked above them?

                                                  Washington State who went 11-2 and finished 10th isn’t even ranked to begin the year.

                                                  Where’s the logic on that?


                                                  Yes Georgia hasn’t done anything. They beat a 0-2 Vandy and a FCS team. That’s garbage.

                                                    Alabama has had a big non conference game every year except this season. They have USC in 2020, Miami in 2021, Home and Home vs Texas in 2022&23. Wisconsin home and home, Notre Dame home and home, West Virginia home and home. So Alabama is going to play a marquee non conference opponent every year. We owed Duke a game any way. Sorry their Star QB went in the draft. The issue with the FCS schools is due to the lack of independent schools, after the SEC expanded in 1992 a There were around 40 to 50 Independent schools that could be scheduled easily, that includes Penn State, Miami, FSU, Most of what is now the ACC. There is only a handful today. With some conferences playing 9 conferences games it limits the scheduling even more as most programs want 8 home games, and with a unbalanced conference line up it makes it even harder. The bottom line is scheduling is way harder now, games are lined up 5 to 10 years down the road.

                                                      Hanzo The Razor Are you seriously going to use that argument given what Bama has been telling Group of 5 teams for years now?

                                                      In 2009 Bama believed that TCU wasn’t good enough to play them even though TCU had more ranked wins than UT.

                                                      Scheduling is much harder now as non conference games are played in the first 3 or 4 weeks of the season. There is some exceptions as some SEC teams have rivalry games against teams in the ACC, Florida vs Florida St, Clemson vs South Carolina, Georgia vs Ga Tech and Louisville vs Kentucky. Prior to 1992 they were playing Penn State the 6th or 7th game of the season. Go back and look at the schedules and you can see for yourself, as conferences expanded it made scheduling non conference games much more difficult. As for G5 teams not many get ranked anyway and with scheduling a team that might be really good now, in 5 or 6 years they are a different team. Alabama has South Florida on their schedule in a few years, It is most likely a two for one deal.

                                                      Joel Klatt: It’s not up to Big name teams to schedule tough opponents

                                                      Also Joel Klatt: Group of 5 teams need to schedule tough opponents.

                                                      Well Joel this is a bit of a contradiction. If you don’t think big schools should have to schedule tough group of 5 teams, then how on earth are these group of 5 teams going to play tougher opponents?

Nick is the sec coach that want a 9 game conference schedule, and would prefer to play all power 5 schools for better games and has said so for years thats why he gets fustrated. I honestly think its alot of schools who turn down bama especially the ones with high expectations its almost to big a risk.! You can tell colin doesnt like nick saban
