Are you guys joking? That's a tough schedule.
They have 2 tough games LSU and A M whith a bye week before both games. What makes it even easier if they split those two games they will play for bcs championship again. The last two years Alabama has lost in november at home and still made both championship games.
They have far more than two tough games. Tennesse is a dangerous longtime rivalry and they are very hungry. Mississippi St is maturing into a fierce rivalry. And Arkansas could be a title contender with their new coach.
To dismiss that four game stretch of SEC rivals ... is like those who look at ND's schedule and look past an MSU and Purdue - forgetting how the long histories with these teams and their being physically near each us ... make for a close game if not a loss - lif the team is not mentally sharp.
Except for the two non-BSC conference teams - Bama's schedule is representative.
