    The schools just announced a home and home series for the 2022/2023 season.

    I think that is a great thing.

    Cool! I'm sure we'll have some pessimism on this form there's always a few.

    Win-win. Maybe Saban is gone by then and they aren't still this Monster Bama. If they are still this Bama, no shame in getting beat - get credit for stepping up and playing them.

    There's always shame in getting beat but thanks for assuming it will be a loss. "Credit" ?

    And then again, bama may get caught making millions in payments to these athletes and get the death penalty. Who knows a$$y? Did you catch that.... I called him assy instead of aggy with 2 dolla signs.=)roll

    Texas is 7-1-1 against Alabama all-time.In four years my guess Saban will be retired and Texas hopefully can recruit and build the OL and DL to win in the trenches Unknown by most ,DKR never lost to Bear Bryant of Alabama who many consider the best college coach of ALL time.

    Why? They are on a totally different level. If you think your program is on par with Bama, you are as delusional as some of the folks on Texags.
    If you played them this year you would get killed. But who knows in 4 years. If they stay what they are, nobody will blame you guys for getting beat.
    If you expect to be Bama is 4 years, good luck with that.

    This is great for college football. I hate OU, but was glued to the tube for OU/tOSU last year. This will be bigger. A lot bigger than BU/Incarnate Word anyway.

    I recently went to Orange Beach, Al. In one of the ocean side restaurants there was an obnoxious wall full of bama pictures from mnc games. Guess which one was represented the most, yep you guessed it. Bama's daddy. 7-1-1 and they wouldn't have won that one save for a freak injury to Colt. Not to mention, GG almost came back and won that game. I think we beat them.

    This is bad for Longhorn. You can't keep telling people about the good old days and referring to yourselves as "Daddy" if you have to actually play them on the field today. Stick with the 7 on 7 league. ;)

    By the time this game is played, who knows who will be who in CFB. It is very likely that Saban will have retired by then. Alabama won't be the top dog forever. They'll have their drop off, just like every school does. Everything ebbs and flows, and Alabama is not immune to that.

    I love blue blood vs blue blood. This is what college football is about.

    You never know this could be Alabama trying to show America they're back and Texas is on top when we get to this game. Things change and for us I'm hoping hiring TH was the correct solution.
