How it it soft? Would you like to trade schedules with us? If we're not playing a top-10 team then people dont think we're playing anyone. Comes with being the best program in college football I guess...
outside of lsu, auburn, atm, which are never played back to back, you have hardly played any of the good east teams, and your ooc is a joke!

2012 we played LSU then A&M the next week. Probably had an impact on losing to the aggies. Just being in the west makes our schedule harder than any team in the east

From top to bottom, it's not as big of a disparity as you think between the East and West anymore IMO.  For example, in head-to-head competition last year, the West was only 2 games better than the East (8-6).  And in 2012, it was even between the East and West in head-to-head competition (7-7).  That's a big difference in what it was several years ago (things have tightened up between the East and West).  

It was 15-3 in 2010 when each East team played three West teams (before adding Missouri and Texas A&M).  That was embarrassing for the East that the East only had 3 wins vs. the West out of 18 games.

But who are those west teams that they played? Georgia vs. LSU was the only big win the east had over west last year.

By definition of the SEC scheduling, every West team played an East team twice.

Possibly Missouri over A&M could be considered a pretty big win.  There weren't many big wins for the West either other than Auburn over Missouri and possibly Auburn over UGA.

Usually the top teams win in each Division.  That's why I said from top to bottom.  I do admit that the West has had the dominant team in both divisions over the last several years (the SECCG results prove that over the last 4 years).

Given the number of talented players at Alabama, Saban is no longer filling needs.  It's more like Alabama is stockpiling talent just to prevent them from playing elsewhere.

I like it. There is so much competition to get on the field, it makes everyone hungry.

  Can you imagine the negative recruiting that everyone else uses....

Do you really want to play on Alabama's scout team?

This is kind of true, tho. Guys that could be big time contributors here at State wouldn't see the field until possibly their junior or senior season at Alabama.

When they come to Alabama they know what the scene is. They know they may have been top dog at their HS, but this is something else. This is the stage where the men are separated from the boys. The first day the freshmen get a  look at the veteran players on the field it hits home what they are up against. They either decide to get in the ring, and fight for a place on the team or they run away to a place where they don't have to compete so much for PT. But they know what they are getting into either way.
