    Texas A&M drops USC, Oregon from schedule

    Such an unbelievably weak move by A&M and the SEC. Unreal.

    Pansies. They should just have to play Alabama 12 times each year.

    Re: Texas A&M drops USC, Oregon from schedule

    B.S. If the quote below is true, then why cancel them until you know the SEC schedule? Maybe they would have fit well. It is a shame to see TAM retreating into the isolation of the SEC. Sure it is a tough conference, but it is the inter-conference play and bowl games that really show how tough they are.


    "Those games are no longer part of A&M's plans, [A&M AD Eric] Hyman said, because "having switched from the Big 12 to the SEC, we've had to scrub our whole schedule - throw it almost out. Going forward, we've had conversations with people, but we really can't be contractually (obligated) until the conference says you've got the green light." Slive said this week, moving forward, he intends for SEC schools to first receive their league game dates and then schedule non-conference contests around those. "When we know what we've got and we know where the holes are and what we have to work with," Hyman said in regard to when scheduling can be tackled.

    We should pick up the game with USC and we both wear home jerseys.

    Wait, their Ad's name is Hyman? Sounds like he fits right in with the rest of them.

    Someone was telling me that he's had it rough lately, and that he's a broken man.

    Re: Texas A&M drops USC, Oregon from schedule

    SEC is playing everybody and completely getting away with it. They get credit for this amazingly tough conference, but their schedules on average are easier than Big 12 and Pac 12 schedules.

    -8 conference games
    -bye week late in the year
    -week off against an FCS team late in the year
    -2-3 bad teams at the bottom of the league

    Big 12 teams could only dream of schedules that easy. But it is clearly the best conference in the top half so all those things get completely ignored. Alabama was playing quite poorly at home against FCS Georgia Southern the same day OKState lost to ISU on the road, it works great for them.

    Yeah, but outside of the 9 game schedule the B12 could fix that and organize it to be a little more friendly. I, for one would like to see a game added as an exhibition. You could play whoever you wanted whenever your schedule allows. Then you place a "No-FCS" restriction on the rest of the season. The SEC is going to move to a 9 game schedule so that will help but they still seem to schedule **** compared to a lot of the teams elsewhere. The thing is, Nick Saban is the only coach that seems to get that playing junk will eventually dissuade fans from buying tickets, mostly because of TV coverage. He still schedules poor teams but what he says and i believe how he votes is in favor of making things better.

    Yup, and while the SEC makes up for that late bye\fcs late in the year by scheduling conference games early in the year, the fact is its better in the court of public opinion (2/3 of the BCS formula and who knows what portion of the playoff committee's decision) to get any losses out of the way early, as you have the rest of the season to recover your ranking. 2 teams with identical slates of opponents, but one loses only to Team C on Aug 31 and one loses only to Team C on Dec 1, and the team that lost on Aug 31 will be ranked higher at playoff\bowl selection time than the team that lost on dec 1.

    According to USC, there was no USC-aTm series.

    From May 17:
    Texas A&M to host ULM in 2014; TAMU-USC Series in 2015-16 Never Finalized

    2015-16 Texas A&M-USC Series Never FinalizedBack in 2009, then Texas A&M Director of Athletics Bill Byrne announced that the Aggies were “finalizing a series with USC for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.” To date, a contract has not been completed for that series.
    A spokesman for the USC athletic department told us last night that “there were very preliminary discussions between the schools, but nothing ever came of it.” Officials at Texas A&M have not yet returned a request for comment.

    Texas A&M drops home-and-home with USC - CBSSports.com

    "Hyman also initially gave the impression that Texas A&M's home-and-home with Oregon in 2018 and 2019 had been cancelled as well, but has since corrected himself, as those games are still a part of A&M's future schedule."


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    If it's like it reads, I can't blame them at all....and if it was ISU, most of us would agree.
