Pretty sure it's vs ECU in Charlotte.

But Texas AM on a Thursday night sounds better to me.

That would be a monster opener if we both make it to the SECCG this year.

Spurrier is pretty good in Thursday night games with us. I would welcome it (if we were at home)

I think what you're thinking is that aTm is our permanent cross division rival beginning in 2014, they'll come to Cola.

Default Re: 2014 Opener....

It would make for a great opener, no doubt. But I would not want this game to be the opener unless the Georgia game was moved to the third week of the season.

There is a little precedent for this. For example, in 2008 we opened with back-to-back Thursday night games against NC State and Vandy before playing Georgia in the third week.

So, if we started 2014 like this:

Week 1 - Home vs. Texas A&M (Thurs)
Week 2 - vs. ECU in Charlotte (Sat) OR vs. a cream puff at home
Week 3 - Home vs. UGA (Sat)

Then I'd be totally down with A&M as the opener. But I think we've learned from last season that getting tough SEC teams back-to-back (to back) is not easy to manage. So, we should lobby to get the "tough" games spread out as much as possible.

That all said, I know that the SEC/ESPN powers do what they want to do with the scheduling, and if we have to play A&M and Georgia back-to-back next year, well, BRING IT ON.

I'm pretty sure manziel is a sophomore and a college player has to have at least 3 years before declaring for the draft

Gotta beat the best to be the best...except in the case of Alabama who only has to win against the top echelon at the end of the season.
