Alabama Adds Louisiana-Monroe to 2015 Schedule

Nick Saban will have his revenge, even if he must wait eight years to do so.

It was confirmed by Al.com today that Alabama will face Louisiana-Monroe in 2015. The Warhawks, you may recall, are the team that stunned Alabama 21-14 in Nick Saban's first year as Tide coach in 2007.

It must be assumed an at least six-figure payday was secured by the UL-Monroe athletic department in order to rubber-stamp this ritualistic ass-kicking, but I'm still salty they're allowing Nick Saban a chance to even the score.

(If you don't think Nick Saban would have been haunted to his grave by his 0-1 record to Louisiana-Monroe, you're kidding yourself.)

Alabama is set to open the 2015 season in a date with Wisconsin in Jerry Jones' monstrosity in Arlington, Texas.

Don't be silly, that's what the perceived "strength of the conference slate" is for.

Remember, you can't spell "cupcakes" without S-E-C.

I think it's more of using L-M as a warmup for AU.  IIRC they run an uptempo no huddle type offense; right?  That makes a lot more sense than scheduling Navy right out of the shoot.

It's all about the cost of doing business. Oddly enough, mirrors AL's recruiting pitch.

Dolla dolla bills, y'all

Saban: trying to slow the game to leverage advantage, and now revenge on a lightweight. College football is all about him, apparently.

Yes it is. Saban gets what Saban wants

I'm under the assumption that he has dirty pictures of everyone at the NCAA, thats how he gets his agenda accomplished

Imagine that.. The Wisconsin game could be huge for the B10, but again unlikely Wisky will win. 

Mac..yeah

Same thing Michigan is doing with Appalachian State. Here's a hint for both of those out-for-revenge squads: you won't be even. You lost and it will always be hilarious.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

Another Juggernaut that will be completely overlooked by espin. If we did that - they would take jabs for the next year and a half.

I want to see a major Saban meltdown when Monroe hangs another loss on them.  That would be epic.
