They will play the FCS schools like Jacksonville State and Samford, but they won't play the FBS schools. Heck, Troy has been around over 100 years in football and have never played Alabama or Auburn. UAB has been around since the mid 90's and has never played them either.

It's our SBC cross to bare. Our SEC counterparts won't throw us a bone. UGA will schedule the heck out of App St, Troy, and ULM but we will never get a shot. Auburn and Alabama have us scheduled but they won't look at you guys. It's all very deliberate and frustrating.

Georgia Southern has scheduled UGA and GT several times over the last few years.

And they weren't FBS then either. See how often that happens going forward.

GT was aware of our FBS intentions the first time they scheduled us and we were already FBS the second time they scheduled us.

GT found out fast that we would pack the house, they needed the attendance boost.

UGA, especially with the new cash cow SEC Network, doesn't need the boost - or the risk. Taking them to overtime and so contributing to some degree to the oust of Coach Richt, isn't lost on their new coach.

Giving credibility to another instate FBS prgram outside of their "hate" game isn't something the red coats want to do - nor most other SEC programs apparently.

We were on the uga schedule every four years before our move up. The last game was moved up a year at their request, and we have disappeared from their schedule forever it seems. I'd actually like to see some sort of state legislature mandate that requires them to schedule us every other year and pay us the going rate that they send out of state instead. I suppose the argument against such is that it is a wash if we get the same rate from an out of state program. 2 Million goes out, and comes back in. But it sounds like a good reason to get them back on the schedule to me! 03-wink I just want to take them down.. just one freaking time.
I'm glad we didn't play them last year. Since ol'slick willy set his mind on the graveyard tour at tulame - we've really struggled. I'm putting a lot of hope in us getting back to our identity this year and I'd love to see us in full triple option form, get a shot at those guys. Taking down the red coats and getting paid almost 2 Million to do it? Ah..... would be mighty sweet!

As for Auburn and Alabama ever playing Troy, USA, UAB (once they've built their power back to where it was) and probably even Jacksonville State now that they gave Auburn everything that could handle, the chances are ZERO. Sure they play instate schools but they are always traditionally weak FCS programs. That doesn't stop Coach Saban from bragging about playing instate schools though.

Auburn did play Samford and UAB. But its been 20 years.

Auburn played Samford a couple of years ago when Pat Sullivan was still their HC. There have been talks of another UAB vs Auburn football game. Who knows what will come of it, though.
