My final four in alphabetical order are: Auburn, Clemson, Oklahoma and Wisconsin
Auburn wins the Iron Bowl in a close one at home and spanks UGA again to become the first two-loss playoff team. Clemson takes care of SC and Miami. Wisco wins out. Bama gets in by way of most impressive loss amongst the one loss teams.

1. Wisconsin (only unbeaten team)
2. Clemson
3. Auburn
4. Bama

Bama beats Wisconsin and Auburn beats Clemson in the rematch. Title game is an Iron Bowl rematch. Bama wins that one. Very hard to beat the same team twice in one season, especially Bama.

I think that is actually Bama’s best chance. They’re hurting on defense right now and if they go to the SEC Championship game a week after the Iron Bowl then I give Georgia the edge in that one due to injuries. If anyone knows how to prepare for Bama, it’s Kirby.

Side note: This scenario would involve 3 rematches of regular season games.

What do you predict happens to Oklahoma? You have them out of the playoffs.

I saw the “respect” sentence but it thought it was sarcasm because it was in such conflict with the rest of the post.

I can see why you thought that my comment about FSU was sarcasm. That portion was not meant to be sarcastic, I should have been clearer.

At the start of the season, I was actually shocked to see #1 vs #3 and was pleased to see such a great match up so early in the year. In as much, I am always disappointed to see the SEC cupcake week the week before the iron bowl. Heck, why not just take a week off vs playing a FCS school?

What irked me this year is that Mercer sold the potential health of their athletes in order to pocket over $1M (combined income from playing Auburn and Alabama in the same year). I put the largest portion of that blame that on the Mercer administration, not on the FBS schools. Mercer is an FCS school with a 2015 enrollment of 8,600. Compared to the FBS schools of Alabama (37,665 in 2016) and Auburn (27,287 in 2015). Mercer student athletes are most likely to be physically smaller and according to their roster, they are a young team:

Fr. 29 30.53%
Jr. 5 5.26%
R-Fr. 19 20.00%
R-Jr. 12 12.63%
R-So. 14 14.74%
R-Sr. 1 1.05%
So. 5 5.26%
Sr. 10 10.53%

I feel in a contact sport like football, that it is irresponsible of the Mercer administration to play the larger, more physical opponents.

In the spirit of good football, Top ranked FBS teams playing middle of the road FCS teams is a joke. I would hope for at least a FBS vs FBS matchup. Heck, we only get a few weeks of football, I want as many good games as possible.
