Head coach Gus Malzahn of the Auburn Tigers reacts after their 21-16 win over the Washington Huskies at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on September 1, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Our guys are excited to be back home for our second home game", Malzahn said in the opening statement of his press conference Tuesday. "There have been a number of conversations with our conference office, and they also recognize the challenges these kick times present for our student-athletes and fans".

"We are disappointed that our game against Southern Miss has been selected as a daytime kickoff at home", the statement from Alabama's AD and president read, citing no reason other than preference. There are several notable SEC games in Week 4 and the Crimson Tide's contest should be a blowout, so it gets the noon slot. "Personally, I wish it was at noon".

That Alabama's nonconference schedule is the equivalent of pound cake doesn't help its argument to be slotted anywhere but early; however, it's nonetheless amusing that the Alabama's gripe is Auburn's entertainment.

But then again, Texas A&M has a 7 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday as well, so maybe he just hoped he would have been able to watch their game live after already taking on Kent State.

And if it wasn't, you can bet that Alabama will probably still take it as one.
