good strength of schedule article
 
Sorry if article too Ga oriented, but it's more about how UA and AU sux in this article. Excuse please if posted already.
Tide has a pathetic, easy schedule this year.
Hope we get to meet and beat them in Atlanta, if not Auburn (revenge!)

Hopefully our strength of schedule will help a lot this yr. Here is one ranking list placing us at 13 and UGA at 19.

The type of opponent is more important than where the game is played.

Let's say Michigan State was playing the same schedule that Bama plays this season. Would you say it was an easy schedule for the Spartans?

It's an interesting article offering a view on something that may happen. People laud schools for scheduling games and each summer we see those games canceled or postponed.

Let's not forget this is the same program, UGA, that canceled their series with Oregon that was scheduled for 2015 and 2016. Ohio State and Georgia were supposed to play each other. That game canceled because of the uncertainty of how the B1G schedule was going to work itself out.

It's true Bama and Michigan State will no longer play that home and home. It was canceled due to the uncertainty on how the SEC schedule is going to work itself out. (I still believe we'll see the SEC move to a nine game schedule sooner than most expect.)

Setting that aside I question the assertion you've made about Bama's schedule when it's compared to yours—especially considering there are four common opponents. You want to trade LSU for Georgia? Are you saying Mississippi State and Ole Miss are on the same level as Kentucky and Vanderbilt?

We can take care of this at Jordan-Haire (spelling intentional) during the season then take care of those crimson pachyderms in the ATL in December!
