re: Rumor that we start the year at Bama,
The SEC has a computer model that can schedule 12 conference games in 14 weeks beginning 8/29 and ending 11/28. It should take them a couple of hours to make the matches. They could throw in a few Thursday or Friday night games for TV.

If we get football I don't give a damn if we play the KC Chiefs.

Whatever it takes they need to figure it out.

If it's the same "model" that made us play
at Àuburñ 2 years in a row I want no part of it.

That was an SEC officials decision to simply change locations.
If we played a 12 game conference schedule we would have six road games, five home games, and one "neutral" game, the WLOCP.

Because we were told it was the only way to balance the entire SEC schedule after the 2012 expansion and we're still waiting
on a return game.

So instead of having one more SEC home game we had to play one of our biggest rival on the road 2 years in a row?

BTW,this change forced ANOTHER change down the road because Auburn bitched so much about playing UGA and Bama on the
road on in November during even years.

That comment pertains to the 2020 season, if it happens.

Okay I was trying to figure out the context because I don't think there's any way a 12 game conference schedule takes place this year.I doubt any games will be
added

BTW,AU has acknowledged they still owe us a game.I believe the conference has stated
that it's still gonna take a few years to get it straight...one of reasons I'm highly skeptical of the SEC and their scheduling abilities.

With 50% capacity it has to level the field somewhat, no? Two rent a wins wouldn’t give us much more time to gel....if it is the same date and the home crowd is halved I like it....

That is not a rumor. We won't start the season with Bama.

If we went to a conference only schedule with no adds it certainly would be.

Night game-probably- with 20k fans allowed in
Game day- no. There will be no game day experience this year at any stadium.
