I thought it had to be three in order to qualify as a streak? At least that's what Major League told me. 

"Lou Brown: We won a game yesterday, if we win one today that's two in a row. If we win one tomorrow that's called a winning streak. It has happened before. SO LET'S SEE SOME HUSTLE! SO LET'S JACK IT UP A LITTLE!"

Maybe Iowa & Iowa St can play for the Golden Tractor as a trophy.

Another way of saying that is "scoreboard."

Yeah. So if your math is correct, you need to win the next two Iron Bowls and three straight against South Carolina, without tripping over any of the other road apples in the meantime, in order to have a winning streak going against every SEC team simultaneously.

Really the South Carolina thing kills it. After this year they won't play the second game until 2024. They don't play in 2025, and the SEC hasn't posted their schedule beyond that. So it's conceivable that the third game would be another five years after the second game. So Bama would have to sweep out the SEC East for the next decade. They would obviously have room to drop an early West division game or three, and still build those series back up to three game winning streaks before that third Gamecock game takes place. But they'd have to pretty much dominate the SEC for another decade, give or take. 

Now maybe South Carolina can win the East here and there, and bulk up the series with a few SEC CCGs. But barring that...

And although Saban may scare the pants off of Father Time, I'm pretty sure Saban isn't going to be coaching 'Bama after 2025.

They have a very good front 7 on defense, and a few grad transfers themselves. Their QB is pretty good too.

Plus, they've had a week off to prepare.

Crazy though, Shaq Smith sat out the entire Syracuse game with a groin injury.

Hope he's back for Temple. Then, a week to prepare for PSU.
And apparently, the coaching staff doesn't adjust at halftime. 

Another long season. 

Just hope to go bowling.
