It’s Friday at The Daily Caller, and that means it’s time for the Friday Mailbag.

Lots of a great questions this week, so let’s dive in.

Assuming Alabama loses to Auburn in a close match, do they (Alabama) still have a chance to be in the Playoffs?

Alabama vs Auburn Nov 25th – Alabama’s to lose

Winner plays Georgia in SEC Championship – SEC West will win

Clemson vs Miami in ACC Championship – Winner in top 4

Oklahoma vs Whoever in B12 Championship – Oklahoma’s to lose

Wisconsin vs Ohio State in B10 Championship – Wisconsin’s to lose

I think Alabama’s door is closed if they don’t win the SEC championship. I don’t see two teams getting in from the SEC, which means it’s either going to be Georgia or the Alabama/Auburn winner. It’s not going to be two of the three.

Personally, I think the winner of the Auburn/Alabama game is going to win the SEC, and get a shot at the national title.

Who are your four playoff teams?

I think it’ll be Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma and Wisconsin. I think Alabama and Oklahoma will likely play each other in the championship game.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if Wisconsin makes a run. Our defense is nuts.

Your article about Taylor Swift and politics was right on. Why do you think people refuse to just let celebrities not engage in politics?

Glad to hear you liked the article. I have no idea why some people demand others be vocal about politics. Swift’s case is very interesting because her audience is all over the spectrum, and she knows this. She has nothing to gain by alienating large portions of her audience.

Her silence is the smart call. As for the idiots demanding she speak, they’re morons who should just shut the hell up.

Protecting models with the military? How stupid and immature are you? Please find something better to write about.

Take it easy there, little fella. I’m sorry that I just love hot women so much that I’m willing to use the full force of the United States military to defend their lives. Shame on you for not loving women as much as I do.

And yes, I would absolutely order the use of lethal force if anybody got near our models. After all, who are we if we’re not willing to protect the greatest thing about this planet?
