I didn’t think Oregon was that good and Florida State was that bad. Most fans, and certainly broadcasters don’t understand the snowball effect. Momentum is such a huge part of the college game.
Don’t care about Oregon right now. Give huge credit where credit is due: Ohio State came though in this game big time. With a national title on the line, Cardale Jones wins in big time fashion. Ohio State almost didn’t make this game, but the committee set it up perfectly.
No one can ever take this one away from Ohio State. A genuine playoff, a genuine plow through the best teams in college football, and a genuine team effort. Their defense came through for them tonight, after the first quarter, Ohio State kicked the Ducks in the ass. The tempo thing wasn’t a big deal for the Buckeyes, and unlike many other teams, they weren’t whipped by the numbers the Ducks put up against other teams.
What about Oregon and Marcus Mariota? People, like ESPN and BSP were practically giving them the title. Except Ohio State didn’t believe the hype.
Ohio State is the highly, highly deserving national champion. Like the shirt says, undisputed. Give Urban Meyer credit, he truly had his guys ready to play.
By the way, one of my coworkers went to this game because he’s from Oregon. He just saw his home state’s team get blitzed. He’s a bit of a bag anyway. Ha, ha! It’s going to be a long trip home from Dallas.
