Not Sure if Wisconsin will make it, still undefeated, but think strength of schedule will play in it.

Clemson
OK
Wisconsin
Auburn
Strength of schedule.....
At the start of the season, Alabama's schedule looked pretty tough, but as the season progressed, their best wins have come against three-loss LSU, which lost to Troy, and four-loss Mississippi State. Their only other Power 5 win against an opponent over .500 was vs. Texas A&M which has now lost 5 games.
If Auburn goes on to win the SEC, the loss to them might actually help Alabama's case.

Alabama loss hurts Wisconsin's chances by allowing more teams into a legitimate discussion.
Will be interesting to see if Big 10 is excluded from the final 4 this year.

If Wisconsin wins against Ohio State next week Alabama won't be in a legitimate discussion, lotta tide fans will be pulling for the buckeyes.

No matte what WDE (War D**n Eagle), will be pulling for my Tigers and Wisconsin. Predict Oklahoma, Clemson,
Georgia, Wisconsin final four, Think Georgia too good to beat twice in one year.

I think you may be right. It would be great to see alabama and auburn both in the top four. We could end up with an alabama auburn national championship game

Mn Gophers hired PJ Fleck January 2017
Fleck made $800k at Western Michigan in 2016 and Gophers paid him 3.5 million to come to Minnesota.
5 yr contract 18.5 million total making him the 6th highest paid coach in the Big Ten (14) schools.
Plus they paid 8 million buyout to get rid of the previous head coach and his 13 assistants.

2015 Gophers 3-6 and 9th of 14 in Tracy Claeys 1st year as Head Coach
2016 Gophers 5-4 finished 7th of 14 in Big 10 and Claeys fired

2017 Gophers 2-7 tied at 13th for the 2nd worst record in the Big 10 with 3 other teams... Illinois was 0-9
So of course the state of Minnesota rewarded him with a 1 year extension making it a 22.25 million 6 yr contract.

Average NFL head coach $4.85 million per year, average age 52
Fleck 37, 3.75 mil extension 5 lowest NFL head coaches $3.5 m and the NFL plays 30% more games per year.

Sounds like Minnesota is most of the politicians alma mater.

Yep....amazing how fickle the alumni are these days. Give you a raise and extension one year then run you off the next. Ten million should last him a little while anyway. 8-5 may look darn good the next few years.

If they don't make final four I hope OU doesn't make it either and we get to watch the top pop off lower teir bowls bidding on a Bama Sooners rematch from @3 years ago. Remember that one? I think they would match up pretty good again this year.
