Alabama football schedule 2017
Cory Diaz USA Today Network Published 8:45 p.m. UTC Jun 28, 2018 GRAMBLING – Mark your calendars GramFam, a couple of changes have been made to Grambling State’s 2018 football schedule. GSU’s home opener on Sept. 15 versus Bacone College, a school that avoided complete institutional shutdown this summer after cutting most of its operating expenses by eliminating athletics and laying off much of its faculty and staff, has officially come off the team’s 11-game slate. The back-to-back SWAC champions instead will use that week as an open date. That change moves the G-Men’s first home game of 2018 to the following week when they open up SWAC play hosting Alabama State Sept. 22 at Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium for High School Day. Grambling opens the season with two road games, at UL Lafayette Sept. 1 to open the 2018 season and at Northwestern State Sept. 8 before being off the following week. Since the premature announcement of Bacone’s … [Read more...] about Grambling makes adjustments to football schedule

Please note: The Associated Press preseason top-25 will be released later this month (our ballots are due soon). Also, consider this the last call for Pac-12 Network questions (go here) before I attempt to get answers from the conference office. Action: USA Today/Coaches’ preseason top-25 poll released Thursday with Oklahoma on top followed by Alabama and Oregon. Stanford is No. 6. It’s easy to dismiss the preseason polls as meaningless, but they aren’t. They set expectations that provide the basis for coaches to receive contract extensions (or walking papers), and they establish a loose pecking order for BCS admission. It’s much easier to finish in the top 14 (required for an at-large bid) if you’re ranked at the start of the season. That said, the preseason polls are hardly a model of accuracy: Last year, only four of the top-10 teams in the Coaches’ preseason poll were in the top 10 of Coaches’ postseason poll (Ohio State, Boise State, TCU … [Read more...] about Action/reaction: Coaches preseason top-25 poll, football scheduling, Stanford basketball and Vacate vs. K(?)
Now that Memphis has released its football schedule for 2018, let's break down what to take away from it with the Tigers looking to build on last year's 10-3 campaign. Remember, times and TV schedule will be released in June.Memphis has seven home games for the third consecutive year and it will only add to the excitement the Tigers generated after a historic 2017 season that ended with them ranked in the Associated Press Top 25. Before last season, a program-record 22,500 season tickets were sold so expect that number to increase, especially with more chances to watch the team.Pray for good weather? Last year's home season opener against Louisiana Monroe was a gnarly mix of wind and rain due to Hurricane Harvey that kept fans away. Cold rain also affected attendance hosting Tulane so one can hope that won't be a problem this year with seven home games for the third consecutive year.No Thursday games and everybody rejoices. The Tigers played twice on Thursday last year, both … [Read more...] about Analysis: First thoughts on Memphis’ 2018 football schedule
