Saban must be a pastry chef….cause look at the cupcakes on this schedule…Kent State,N. Texas and Georgia Southern….yeech!

well, that makes 5 difficult games for a 12 game schedule…

@Penn State

I’d like to see BSU or TCU win those 5 games in a single season.

its the sec it not the pac 10 with sorry washington stae or wash or ucla or the big ten with minnesta and purdue so you should have at least one big nonconfrence game the rest should just be weak

After the schedule Bama endured in 2010, this schedule looks alot better. No other university even came close to playing schools with 2 weeks to prepare for them, plus carrying the National Champ target, plus the Heisman target Ingram carried and still finish 10-3 in the SEC…a year people shortchange, including the BCS.

I really wish that Bama would renew their rivarly with Notre Dame. Throw in a team like Miami (FL) and that’d be a fun schedule! Replace those cupcakes with the likes of Air Force and East Carolina and we would have a respectable schdule
