RE: Memphis vs. Alabama?
Played them a lot in the mid 1980s to early 1990s, winning one game, although none of those were vintage Alabama teams. Stopped playing them just before Stallings had them back on top winning it all and being contenders for about five years

One thing Saban did not say was that they would play anyone anywhere

But would certainly go to Tuscaloosa a few times for a Memphis return game

He specifically said p5 teams. He would play any p5 team and would want a schedule with nothing but p5 teams. That leaves us out.

Any of you want to guess the last time Bama played at a non P5 school and why they did?

Alabama is like Duke basketball . Pretty much plays at home and neutral field outside of the conference

Alabama would be a helluva lot better 2 for 1 than Arkansas from a prestige standpoint.

But

The odds say we go 2-1 or 1-2 against Arkansas but 0-3 against Bama (assuming Satan still coaching there.

2003, they were on a 2 yr bowl ban and the ncaa decided to let teams add a 13th game if it was at Hawaii.

Boom played 2002 and 2003 because of bowl ban. Last time before that was at Tulane in 1992.

Agreed...

I think Arkansas is a better 2 for 1...

We get 2-3 wins out of the series AND a check. Cant really beat that.

UAlabama would likely beat us so thoroughly we likely wouldn't be taken seriously the rest of the season...Kind of like Cincy when they got murdered by OSU. If Cincy doesn't lose another game they still won't be respected

I think Saban's point was that he didn't want to play them either. Just P5 schools only.

Well that's not going to happen, so we might as well go play them & get $1.5M check too.

I agree. Worst case it would be a quality loss.
