Reasons Schedule is Great For Us

Several reasons:

1) We have only one major cold weather game (New England on Jan. 1). The only one close to that is Nov. 20 at Cleveland - which shouldn't be extreme.

2) We have no prime time games - this is great. There will be less coverage; we'll have a good reason to have a chip on our shoulders.

3) While our schedule is on paper very tough, it doesn't always work out that way as teams expected to be "soft" are tough and vice-versa.

4) Looks like only two games on the "dirt" since we have a bye in week 4 and two road games after that. The only way we'll have another dirt game is if the Marlins make it to the World Series - which, is a decent possibility.

5) The early "bye" has always been a bad thing to me. Last year, however, by the time the "bye" week came 'round, the season was over. This "bye" week will be good for us, however, as we will be working in TWO new systems on offense and defense. That will give us an early week off to work on the mental side of the equation and implement some new things, as well as make necessary adjustments as Saban sees what his players will do. Given the new systems, I like the early bye.

More reasons? Any disagreement?

I also find it interesting that Saban will be returning to Louisiana - should be an interesting "homecoming" of sorts for him. Will be interested to see the fan reaction. They should appreciate him for bringing a Championship to that part of the country - It SURE ain't going to happen with the 'Aints! :roflmao:

The biggest problem with NO Prime Time games is that we are going to be wearing our Orange jerseys on a hot Sunday afternoon instead of at night. :(

At least we can look forward to a high pick in next years draft, if we don't have a good season this year.

I really hope to be optimistic about this season. I agree with everything you said except I'm not so confident about the early bye being a good thing. I was hoping for it to come during midseason.

That's a really good way to look at it. I mean, like the other guy said we'll have to wear the orange jerseys during the day but maybe we'll wear them in cleveland, where we wont be affected by them. I really like your post though.
