    ^^^^ Wisconsin schedule Lol a joke!....I'm gone say what I think happened in the Iron Bowl.I believe Saban threw that game! When the last time you saw a Saban coached team make that many mistakes? Me? Never! man you got the punter handling a snap on a FG attempt and he bobbles it lol.Saban old school and always uses back up QB on FG attempt.Bo S clapping his hands .D Harris offside trying to block a punt ,he is a running back lol.He threw this game.Look he win a emotional Iron Bowl against Auburn he got to turn around and play a hungry Georgia team the next week! what's gone happen? Whats gone happen in that game? Bama would have had a let down ,because of emotion being so high from the Iron Bowl and got beat by Georgia and then they 100 percent out of the playoffs.Take the iron bowl loss you don't have to play the SEC championship game amd you still got a chance to make the playoffs vs winning the iron bowl and then being 100 percent eliminated by Georgia.He taking his chances and it may not play out but Saban felt this was his best chance to get in.

    One other thing ,Bama beat Auburn ole Gus M would have been gone.More than likeLy! put yourself in Sabans shoes ,he knows Gus style like the back of his hand ! throw Auburn a bone they all happy and Gus stays lol.Gus leaves and who knows who they get ? Saban has to start all over again!.One other thing also Bama only loss is to a team who beat 2 number 1 teams in 3 weeks!Another reason Saban took the loss and the chance.

    Its a stretch but I can see the benefits of losing now vs. in the title game. If they lost in the title game and the other three win out it would be much less chance to get in.

    I say three weeks ago they were the best team in the country. I also say in three weeks they will again be the best team in the country.

    I watched the first half of the iron Bowl that day and then watched the second half Monday morning. With a healthy LB corps, all healthy, Alabama gets off the field on a bunch of 3rd downs. The Auburn defense was good, is good, but not so good they could have stood up under four or five more Alabama possessions.

    With that said, I really think right now the only team left that can beat Auburn is a healthy Alabama team. Clemson can't sop them up front. Oklahoma can't play defense and there best chance is a shoot out. And Wisconsin can play defense but they can't score against a good defense.

    Alabama's best shot is OSU as I am not all that confident in Wisconsin.

    Since we are on the conspiracy kick, when Alabama and Auburn both get in, will the committee make them play each other in game one to get rid of one or do they space them to play each other one more time. The SEC come back !!!!

    Good question .I think they space them out hoping one of not both get eliminated

    Check this out.K Johnson the Auburn running back may not play in the SEC championship game .If he does he will be limited in what he can do.I think GA may be good enough up front without stacking the box and force Stidham to make perfect throws all day.With out K Johnson his game isn't automatic for Auburn slim

    Agreed. I saw him limping and holding his arm/hand late Saturday. I had not heard how bad it was or if it would be an issue.

    I agree without him Auburn gets a little more pedestrian. He makes that offense click.

    Without Johnson I can lean a little toward Kirby Smart with two bites at the apple within three/four weeks.

    I did not see that Georgia team coming.

    Georgia is in, Oklahoma is in, Clemson looks good early. OSU is up and Alabama is screaming roll tide/roll buckeye.

    Well bama is in.I'm guessing the 31 point loss to Iowa for the Buckeyes was to much to over look.

    I thought they would be the fourth team. I also think it is the right four in the playoff.

    I think the difference was the body of work as a whole. Alabama was either #1 or #2 in every poll from opening day.

    OSU was very inconsistent.

    I will say though, trying to be consistent, that last year's Penn State team should have been in the four and this year's OSU team should be in the four. I get picking the four best teams but I still think you have to be conference champs 1st.

    The two loss team was a bit tough to handle and the 31 point loss may have been the deal breaker.

    If all those linebacker's are healthy. I think Alabama is the favorite.

    What does Dabo S ,Kirby Smart and Nick Saban have in common ? All 3 won national championships at Bama .Saban and Kirby as coaches and Dabo as a player.Dabo was on the 92 team that beat Miami.So 3 of the 4 coaches in the playoffs have Alabama ties.Interesting.

    Alabama in 92 was awesome. Coach Gene always looked drunk to me.

    Teague ran the guy down and pretty much took the ball via drive by....

    Defense sells tickets too team.
