    Yeah. The SEC and its broadcast partners are involved in a conspiracy against them. Right.

    Part of that has to do with the way games are selected, right? Those non-conference games are going to be the only time the SEC Network can get them before CBS and ESPN scoop up the big conference games.

    And it's obviously been such a hindrance to Alabama. It's a miracle they even manage to win those games by 40 points.

    That and the low-tier teams they are "forced" to play (at home of course).

    Alabama can play the game any time it wants. Pay the fine the SEC would levy for breaking ranks with the TV contract and show up when you please.

    Ala-fucking-bama bitching about kickoff time is rich.

    It is weird, though, that Alabama usually gets the 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. game when they're on the SEC Network, and LSU is always put in the 6:30 time slot.
    Since the SEC Network was launched in 2014, Alabama has played 14 day games and three night games (including the upcoming one against Southern Miss) against non-conference opponents at home. The last was in 2017.
    LSU has played 16 night games and zero day games.

    I've got a question.
    What damn difference does it make?
    You're gonna win 62-3.

    Because they are feeding into that aura about Death Valley at night.

    No such aura exists in Tuscaloosa. That team is hard to play any hour of the day.

    Mostly that it's going to be hotter than the hinges of hell out there Saturday afternoon.

    It's fucking hot at night in the deep south too until October or later. The lowest humidity of the day this time of year is about 5 a.m.
