Breaking down SEC nonconference 2015 schedules http://es.pn/115KLKg

Quote
Alabama Crimson Tide
2015 nonconference opponents: Wisconsin, Middle Tennessee, Louisiana-Monroe, Charleston Southern
A big-name Power 5 opener at a neutral site -- this time Wisconsin in Arlington, Texas

Auburn Tigers
2015 nonconference opponents: Louisville, Jacksonville State, San Jose State, Idaho
Much like cross-state rival Alabama, the Tigers will challenge themselves right out of the gate with a Power 5 opener at a neutral site (Louisville in Atlanta).

Florida Gators
2015 nonconference opponents: New Mexico State, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Florida State
Any nonconference schedule that includes Florida State can't be criticized too heavily.

Georgia Bulldogs
2015 nonconference opponents: Louisiana-Monroe, Southern, Georgia Southern, at Georgia Tech
We never know what to expect from Georgia Tech.

LSU Tigers
2015 nonconference opponents: McNeese State, at Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, Western Kentucky
[There's no excuse to lost to Syracuse in the dome.]

Mississippi State Bulldogs
2015 nonconference opponents: at Southern Miss, Northwestern State, Troy, Louisiana Tech

Missouri Tigers
2015 nonconference opponents: Southeast Missouri State, at Arkansas State, UConn, BYU
On Thursday, Missouri announced it would play BYU at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium...

Ole Miss Rebels
2015 nonconference opponents: Tennessee-Martin, Fresno State, New Mexico State, at Memphis

Texas A&M Aggies
2015 nonconference opponents: Arizona State, Ball State, Nevada, Western Carolina
They open with a neutral-site game against Arizona State in Houston...

Contract calls for Alabama to negotiate exclusively for 2019 or 2020 Cowboys Classic return. http://ow.ly/OywhR

Quote
A provision in the contact for the Crimson Tide's 2016 game with USC in Arlington, Texas calls for a possible return to AT&T Stadium in the future.

It says Alabama will "negotiate exclusively with ESPN in good faith through August 31, 2015 in an effort to schedule a football game between Alabama and a non-conference opponent to be held on August 31, 2019 or September 5, 2020 at the (AT&T) Stadium."

ESPN and Alabama would have to "mutually approve" the opponent in the game. The contract states Alabama will receive $6 million guaranteed for participation. Also, it says Alabama will receive "a minimum of $1,000,000 more than their opponent for the 2019 or 2020 game."

Auburn, Oregon to open 2019 season at Cowboys stadium (http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/06/30/auburn-oregon-to-open-2019-season-at-cowboys-stadium/)

Quote
Nearly a decade after their epic championship game battle, Auburn and Oregon are set to go at it again on a neutral field.

On Twitter Tuesday, AU athletic director Jay Jacobs announced that his Tigers football program will open the 2019 season against the Ducks.  The game will be played at the home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex, in the annual Cowboys Classic.

Barring a matchup in a bowl or playoff between now and then, the 2019 game will be the second-ever between the programs.  The first was in the BCS title game following the 2010 season, a 22-19 AU win in Glendale, Ariz., that was decided on a Wes Byrum field goal with no time left on the clock.

Jacobs’ announcement means that the next five Cowboys Classic games are set:

    2015 Alabama vs. Wisconsin
    2016 Alabama vs. USC
    2017 Florida vs. Michigan
    2018 LSU vs. Miami
    2019 Auburn vs. Oregon

Kliff Kingsbury on Texas Tech: “We just weren’t good enough” http://atxne.ws/1BTAWRD

Quote
Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury has enjoyed some soaring highs and crashing lows during his first two seasons coaching in Lubbock.

He won his first seven games of 2013, his debut season at Tech. But since then, Kingsbury’s Red Raiders have dropped 13 of 18. They didn’t qualify for a bowl last year.

There was a lot of blame for what happened, from injuries to his starting quarterbacks to poor defensive play, especially thwarting the run.

“For a lot of (last season), coaches were doing the best they could, working harder than they’ve worked. And a lot of time, players were, but we just weren’t good enough. Things weren’t going our way. It doesn’t mean we’re on the wrong track. It just means it wasn’t working for us last year. That’s the biggest deal.

“When you lose, sometimes your first reaction is to blow everything up and start over. After you have time to sit back and look how it all developed, you continue to work hard, work the plan you have in place and go with it.”

With Patrick Mahomes and Davis Webb, quarterback probably will be a strength for Tech this season. And David Gibbs, the former Houston head coach, has taken over the Red Raider defense...

Alabama confirmed in a press release Thursday morning that it will open the 2018 season against Louisville in what will be the third-ever Orlando Kickoff game.  No specific date for the contest that will be played in the Citrus Bowl has been released.

“he 2018 game will mark the seventh consecutive neutral-site season opener for the Crimson Tide,” said UA athletic Bill Battle in a statement. “Neutral-site games have been good for Alabama in national exposure as well as financially under Coach Saban’s leadership. Our first regular-season neutral-site game in Orlando will provide another great matchup of national interest against an excellent Louisville program, but is also a new venue that I believe our fans will enjoy.”

“Kicking off the 2018 season with a great opponent like Alabama is a tremendous way to start the season,” Battle’s UofL counterpart, Tom Jurich, said. “We continually want to play highly respected opponents each year, and adding a traditional power like Alabama in the opener will certainly be an outstanding challenge. We have a vision to be the best we can be, and to do that, we have to play the best. We are also thrilled to be headed back to a destination city like Orlando. I know our fan base will respond for this tremendous match-up.”

Florida State and Ole Miss will square off in the inaugural Orlando Kickoff next year.

...Lyons is also reportedly working on adding more neutral site games (and the big paydays that tend to come with them), suggesting a potential return to Atlanta in 2020. No opponent has been linked to the chatter just yet, but Lyons expects it to come against another power conference team. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff has always had a team from either the ACC or SEC, if not both.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CgmrhFNWwAI5rBR.jpg)

Quote
The game may not be until Sept. 3, but Southern Cal offensive coordinator Tee Martin is well aware of Alabama linebacker Tim Williams.

In the spring game, Williams, who had 10.5 sacks last season, registered a pair of sacks but wreaked havoc on a defense-dominated day.

"He's a great player," said Martin, who joined The Opening Kickoff on WNSP-FM 105.5 on Thursday in Mobile, Alabama. "We're excited about the opportunity."

Martin, a Mobile native who led Tennessee to the national title, joked he wasn't going to give any "bulletin board material."

Martin did say the Trojans have already started preparations for the defending national champions.

Like Alabama, USC has yet to name a starting quarterback.

Just this week, Southern Cal coach Clay Helton announced his decision to extend the competition Monday.

The race is between redshirt junior Max Browne and redshirt freshman Sam Darnold.

Martin is in his hometown this week to be inducted into the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame's 28th overall class.

Alabama and Southern Cal meet Sept. 3 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Chick-fil-A Bowl president and CEO Gary Stokan: "We had Nick Saban sold in 2008 when they came in and beat Clemson. That's really the launch of their run, that started it. Then we had them again the next year against Virginia Tech. ... On the Florida State said, Jimbo took the job in (2010). I asked him to play in the game, and he said 'I'd love to, but not right now. Let me get my program in place and my recruits here and we'll do it then.' So fast-forward 3-4 years we were able to do it.

"I believe that college football should keep its intersectional rivalries, should keep its home-and-home. But on the other side, if you're looking at potentially getting into an area where you want to recruit, where your alumni are, where a financial windfall can take place. In the case of the ACC and the SEC it works because you have four conference games at home, with four non-conference games to schedule. They build their budget on seven home games, so as long as you can schedule seven home games, you've made your budget. Now you've got one game to schedule. And if you can schedule it in Atlanta and make $5 million, where you net $3 million for a home game, that $2 million is a win. For your recruiting base, coming to Atlanta is a win. Playing in front of 30,000 of your fans is a win. So there's no real down side.

"It's harder to do home-and-home, because when you play the away game part of that, you don't make any money. So if you can do like Nick Saban has done and go neutral-neutral, $5 million one year and $4 million the next year, that's $5-6 million more than you would have made playing a home-and-home. Do I believe in home-and-home? Most definitely. That's how college football was built. But when you get an opportunity to play in one of these neutral site games and get a financial and recruiting windfall and where your alumni are, I think it makes sense."
