Yes, way too early in the season for a bye week but, if it helps them have a better game plan for A&M and beat them in Dallas, good for them. And without even taking a look at A&M's returning personnel, I'm sure we already know what to expect.

SDS has very little respect for the Arkansas program. The only positive article they've written this year wasn't even about the program, it was about the bravery of Rawleigh Williams. Unless you are a fan of Bama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, or LSU theres no reason to read anything on that site  ::)

At USCe, At Bama, Auburn, At Ole Miss............no break in between.  Versus:  Home against TCU, break, neutral site versus A&M.  Hard to believe anyone would think that was well planned.

You realize "we" didn't plan it? The SEC sets our conference schedule and bye week.

Scheduling Coastal Carolina later in the season helps in that regard. That's a game that should allow CBB and his staff to give the starters some rest.

Georgia hasn't really been a contender since Stafford left. They get those 9/10 wins and bow out. Florida hasn't been much better, but the rest of the east has been such a mess that the gators have been able to back their way in. They are all media darlings and have been for quite some time

Are you sure about that? 

I know they do the conference games, but I thought that they other 5 weeks were up to the school's AD.  I remember the "controversy" a few years ago when all the teams in the West & Tennessee had their bye week right before they played Bama.

The schools set their off week by setting their ooc schedule. Problem is, there may be a day you just can not get a suitable opponent, so that ends up being your off week. Or, you may choose to not have a game on a certain date for some reason. Add in that some of you ooc games are set years in advance, and its not as easy as it looks.

They could have scheduled us a conference game in week 3, there's no written rule that we open SEC play in week 4. We opened at Auburn in 2014.

I understand that, sometimes there is a conference game in week 1. 

What I was asking is are you sure that the conference office tells us when our Bye week has to be?

The only benefit of our schedule is that nobody gets a bye before us:

Our schedule sets up very nicely for us this year and most of you know it.
We get the opener on a Thursday night which gives us 2 extra days to prepare for TCU.
We then have a bye week to get ready for probably the most pivotal game of the season, Texas A&M.
We then have a very winnable OOC game with NMSU and that  is great for a potential let-down.

Then we travel to South Carolina, another very winnable game. So we could potentially start off 5-0.

Our least winnable games are on the road, Bama and LSU which means that our tougher winnable games are at home(a BIG +)!

So, we have a 4 game stretch after an OOC game and then we have Coastal Carolina for a second break before we finish with with 2 of our final 3 at home.

How is that not a favorable schedule???

Considering SCar is a toss up along with the Ms Schools and we'll likely be dogs the rest of the conference games I wouldn't really call it favorable. More like less sucky than other years.

I have no idea, not privy to the correspondence between the SEC & our athletic dept.

What I was asking you, are you sure the conference now assigns the bye weeks for the teams,  and is it a change from the past method of 6 reserved weeks? 

Back in 2010, Bama threw a fit when teams manipulated the schedule, where 6 teams had a bye week before playing Bama. That was when the schools were able to chose their bye weeks in advance, has that changed?

Last year we were accused a manipulating our schedule, and was curious if the SEC office was trying to get pay back by giving us such an early bye week, or did our OOC scheduling dictate the bye week?

Exactly.  This schedule is as favorable as we could ask for as a SEC West team.

The operative word you left out bud, is....'again'.

We would still have a LONG (no pun intended) stretch of games...again.

'we' may not be scheduling this. But 'we' are doing a pretty lousy job of getting anything changed. The SEC screws us over a lot.

That's what I think is unacceptable.  As someone who lives in CA and comes to one game a year I want to see a quality SEC game in either september or early october when weather is still warm.    Can't do it this year.  Instead I'm going to the TCU game.  The odd numbered years just don't set up for a good home game schedule for the fans going to the games.
