Yes, yes, I apologize, I should’ve consulted with you before I posted. I should’ve known that our AD has nothing to do with our out of conference opponents. I should’ve realized, Alabama’s AD has nothing to do with their out of conference opponents? Alabama’s Power Five opponents like Duke and Louisville just happened to magically pop up on their schedule.
No Auburn AD could have prevented LSU and Alabama from being scheduled week to week for upcoming AU seasons. By the way, who else in the SEC plays LSU and Alabama back to back? No AD could’ve pushed or argued moving Auburn to the SEC East when Missouri and A&M were added to the SEC. It just couldn’t happen.
Also Ohio State and Clemson’s AD have nothing to do with their out of conference opponents? The Notre Dame AD has nothing to do with their powder puff scheduling year after year, it all happens by chance. (On a side-note, this particular year, it will be sweet to see Georgia stomp them next week)
Whatever the SEC hands-down, (again, to include LSU and Alabama in two weeks time) our past and present athletic departments have absolutely no control, no say-so, no arguing, no bargaining in it whatsoever. I should’ve known this.
Let the SEC try to schedule the Turds “Auburn and LSU” back to back in two weeks time. See how that goes over in the SEC office.
80% of this board is witching, moaning and complaining about how the Auburn offense looks this year, compared to other teams. One of my obvious points: let us play someone like Kent State for the first three weeks of the season, then watch how good our offense looks.
Another obvious point: when we already have Georgia out of the SEC East, and we’re going on the road to play Florida out of the East, along with our obvious, murder schedule in the SEC West, why are we scheduling a top 10 or top 11 team out of conference? Is that really so hard to understand?
