Alabama and USC have met to open the season versus each other before...twice...1970 and 1971.

And they were two of the most significant football games in Alabama history.

Would be amazing just for the nostalgia of it.

Yep, due to "uncertainty of future SEC scheduling". I honestly think Saban wants to do away with home and homes and play neutral sites with the big games. More money, maybe bad and good for fans though.

Yeah, we ditched them and replaced them with SC. Nice! It should make lots of people very happy! The fans of both SC and Alabama, plus the media. It will give them something to talk about. I really hope it happens! We have tried for a long time to get this game together. I think it is deemed a far more popular game on a national scale, and we are thrilled to death with the possibility.

It would be a huge advantage for Bama, you would have to think it would be like a home game.

I only hope Sark has them half decent by 2016, then it would be even sweeter.

Yes cause Saban clearly has a track record of dodging quality opponents. He may be the only coach in the SEC who voted for a 9 game schedule, but, damn him trying to weasel out of playing... Mich St.

You're trying way too hard. You think USC won't be better in 2 years?

Saban wanted to play 9 SEC games because he knew that would disadvantage the SEC programs that have quality OOC rivalry games.  Alabama is without a doubt a dynasty but a lot of their success came from smart strategy and knowing the rulebook well enough to cheat before it was called cheating.  What other programs considered a gentleman's agreement, Bama called an opportunity.  That doesn't take away anything from the incredible success they've had, imo, but let's not guild a lily for crying out loud.
