screw  a gentlemans agreement....this football dammitt !!!  :trollface:
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Pleased to hear of these discussions inasmuch the reason Bama is playing in Atlanta this year and played there last year is because LK chickened (pun intended) out on a tentative agreement to play in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic in either 2013 or 2014 (their choice). USC's (read Pete Carroll's) preferred choice of opponents was Bama, therefore the Atlanta Sports Council was in negotiations with Bama for both years, not knowing which year USC would choose. All of that went out the window when PC left and LK came in. Bama wound up being contracted for both years.

Enlighten me on which gentlemen's agreement? There's a lot of unspoken rules among programs, like not snitching. I'm curious which one Bama took advantage of...

Only one I can think of is hard work and hitting the recruiting trail harder than any coaching staff. A lot of athletic departments hate Saban for that.

the level of fan arrogance between these two teams will create the need to reinforce the stadium just to sustain the skull weight.

Silly assessment. SC playing Clemson doesn't have a damn thing to do with whether or not they win the SEC East and go to Atlanta. Stupid Posted Imageing remarks!

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.

Haha, exactly.

Everyone in the SEC watches out for their own best interests. Saban isn't "taking advantage" of schools like UF, USC and UGA with the 9-game conference schedule stuff, he just wants a 9th game to preserve the Tennessee rivalry and give his team an advantage in seasons in which resumes vs other conferences will be compared (8 conf games vs 9 conf games). Richt, Muschamp and Spurrier don't want 9 conference games because it hinders their ability to schedule OOC matchups since they already have permanent OOC rivalries in place.

The stuff you guys find to blame/accuse Saban for is mind-boggling, sometimes.
