That is a weak argument. Alabama and Auburn are in the same conference. We are talking about rivals that are not in the same conference. It makes no sense to compare the two situations.

Ok, consider the argument as if Auburn was not in the $EC. The pull that Bama has within their conference is such that the Iron Bowl would have gone on. That's the point Danny is making, and he was discussing it in that context.

Really of course that’s what he’s talking about. If Bama and Auburn were in the situation that we are in with USC they would find a way to play the game. What makes no sense is telling us that we can’t play our rival.

Also, Ford understands both games having lived in both states and played and coached in both games. It is the same thing and it is comparable because he is saying "if" it was the same situation. That means the same scenario that Clemson and Carolina are dealing with.
