why the hell would any major college want to play at a neutral site when they got their own damn stadium to play in damn. saban = scared to play at any major college home field
Maybe because Alabama plays Va. Tech in '13, WVU in 2015 then home-home 2016/2017 with MSU. We need one neutral for 2014.
And, of course, Wisconsin knew this before they ever counter-offered with a home and home. They did it just so they wouldn't look like complete wimps for being afraid to take a neutral site.

A home and home takes money out of our pocket. If we play four OoC games in a year, usually three are at home and one is a major neutral site game (Michigan, VaTech, Clemson) then ESPN brokers get big ad revenue and a big payout for each team.
With a home and home, we lose revenue because there isn't a big payday for it. It could mean one less home game with 101,000 in the stands.
Our program declined last year? That's news to me. Hope you guys enjoy playing 2nd fiddle to the Wolverines and Buckeyes in the near future. Will you guys still love Dantonio when he starts losing consistently to Michigan?

Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Yes, because there is no such thing as internet, television, sports media in general, other coaches who have played there, stadium reputation, or anything else that would let them know how it is playing in Tuscaloosa.
I don't usually post here, but you are the dumbest person I have seen on BB in a while.

Yeah dude! You don't get it because this federally mandated "special person" CtrlAltDel had one of his imaginary friends find out that Wisconsin actually does Alabama's scheduling for them! So they of course would know EVERYTHING about Alabama's upcoming schedules until the year 2086 as well as being able to read the minds of everyone on Alabama's coaching staff! Duh!
Pass it over, man.
Alabama's recruiting hit another level when Saban started doing the neutral site games. Not sure how the fans get ripped off tho?
Whisky isn't worthy of a home and home with us/
Pretty dumb quote considering the fact that the game would have to be played in September. Do you not know when your own conference plays their OOC schedule?
2009, 2011, 2012 Champs
Now you know that's not true. I have family in West Virginia and Virginia. Both places are similar to Alabama.
You must be Nostradamus since you can predict future teams records.
They do when you play them in atlanta or dallas, two of the bigger cities in america for d1 recruits.
Again, congrats on USC recent success against Minnesota and Syracuse. Those are some true juggernauts, as is BC and ND.
I ask once again, how many BCS Natty's does USC own again?
We couldn't get into atlanta for recruiting until we started playing there almost every year. I imagine that the sec west will start doing better in texas when we start playing a&m there.
A neutral site in a huge recruiting area is smart business.
Took you three tries to get that just right huh?
Your a retard.
You're going to scrutinize me for hitting the wrong keys on the keyboard?
How many BCS Natty's USC have again? Hit me up when you get a couple.
Macdaddy isn't this the pot calling the kettle?
WVU All-Time Record Against SEC Teams before Missouri and A&M joining
Total vs. SEC East = 18-17-2
Miss St 2-0
Ole Miss 1-0
Total vs. SEC West = 4-3
Total vs. SEC = 22-20-2
Leave no doubt tonight! No doubt tonight, no doubt, they shouldn't have played the Old Gold and Blue!
I see what you did there.
Against "current" SEC teams (excluding A&M and Mizzou) overall you are 21-20. However, against the SEC, WVU is 14-18-1. Let me explain......
USCe was in the ACC when WVU won all 7 of their games, actually the record was 7-3.
WVU was also 0-1 against GT (1954 Sugar Bowl) in which they got mudholed 42-19.
