God, just listening to the interviews of players and the coach for Bama, all they were doing was making excuses for being tired/beat up. Welcome to actual college football where you play every week!
Yeah I don't get how they are the only conference that schedules that way. It really makes the end of their season anti-climatic. Florida is actually finishing the season with 3 straight non-conference games.
