It has been said for years, that Alabama “has a weak schedule” so on and so forth.
But the truth here is the fact that Alabama is only left with a handful of opponents, because schools don’t want to play the Saban-led Tide.
They’re left to choose from teams that are at the bottom of the barrel, teams that are rebuilding.
When people say that the Crimson Tide has a weak schedule, they don’t take into account the fact that nobody is chomping at the bit to play them.
Even though they know that it will help them with experience and they would receive a nice check for games like that, teams honestly are uninterested in playing a team that seemingly dominates year in and year out.
Nick Saban said it best before this season ever started when he said “I tell you what, I’ll give you their phone number and if you can convince them to play us, let us know and we’ll schedule them, but until then, I don’t want to hear the ‘weak schedule’ comment.”
So before you comment on Alabama’s “weak schedule” take into account the honest truth behind their schedule.
