I think it's WAY worse than that. I heard something like 0-11 vs OSU all time.

WTF? Why on Earth are you throwing long, Urban Meyer?

In any case, I don't think either of these teams will beat Oregon.

That deep ball was a real head-scratcher. What do you do on third down? You can't pass and not make them burn a timeout, can you?

edit: That possession was a complete disaster. About as bad as it could be without actually turning it over.

UF Urban Meyer loved him some running up the score.

I think Alabama would be a harder matchup vs Oregon than Ohio State. Big, physical teams have given Oregon a ton of trouble (See Stanford last season), and I think Bama is more of a traditional big bruising team than Ohio State, who seems like more of a finesse team to me.

Either game will be a pretty interesting matchup, but I can't see Ohio State matching Oregon's speed.

But I also didn't see OSU having a chance tonight either, so...

Never thought this game would come down to one play. Let alone an interception.

When Alabama tries to get fancy, they lose 95% of the time. Their over-reliance on Amari Cooper (who is highly overrated) and the passing game hurt them tonight, and Ohio State wasn't about to let them get away with their offensive ineptitude. Hell of a game.

Sorry, TCU. Ohio State belongs here.

Why was I so afraid about 2014 turning into 2015?

I mean, 'Noles lose? Tide lose? This is the most wonderful thing imaginable. If this is how the rest of 2015 goes, then I'm quite excited for what lies ahead.

Well, that was fun. I'm still in shock. Not only did my Ohio State Buckeyes just beat an SEC team, they beat the #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Seriously, I couldn't care less what happens in the NC game. This is the one I wanted. We just exorcised a whole bunch of demons.

And with that, goodnight, gentlemen. It was fun. Oh, and GO BUCKS!

This is why college football needed a playoff system! Great game

When the match up was first announced I thought for sure it would be a snooze fest. Man was I wrong tonight.

The two Big Ten Championship Game participants are both going to lose by over 20 today.

Whoops.

Unbelievable game.

Reminded me far too much of Miami and the 2002 national championship game. A very particular air of smugness coming from the #1 team, it's fans, and the national media. And the other side a weirdly confident underdog in Ohio State's team and faithful. It's only the second time I've ever felt that and both times OSU came through.

I thought it would be a close Ohio State loss. Very pleasantly surprised.

Start printing out the Wake Forest beat Alabama (theoretically) t-shirts!

Lots and lots of ESPN executives are in tears right now over not getting their dream National Championship Game matchup ('Bama vs. Jameis). Kind of fitting that both the inaugural CFP Semifinals produce victories towards the morally-better school in each matchup. Now it's a classic BIG-10 vs. PAC-12 matchup for all the marbles at Jerry World.

Petition on Change.org to move the national title game to the Rose Bowl (seeing that it is B1G vs. Pac-12) in 3... 2... 1...

Ohio State versus Oregon will be great. I really like both teams, so I don't have MUCH of a preference, but I think I'm pulling for Ohio State. I think Urban Meyer gets it done and extends his national championship record to 3-0.
