As a Fan, I Would Rather See the Buckeyes Get Blown out 41-14 in a Title Game Than Experience the Type of Loss Auburn Fans Saw

There are different types of brutal losses but, for me, to be so close to the promised land of the championship game—especially after such a terrific comeback in the final five minutes—that was just beyond brutal yesterday.

Don’t get me wrong: from the standpoint of a neutral fan that was incredibly entertaining.  But I feel real empathy for the Auburn fans because their was a sequence of four different events in the final eight seconds that, without any single event happening, Virginia is at home watching on TV Monday night.

I’m sure some others have a different point of view but I was never thinking of the “what ifs” after the 2007 BCS game whereas, for Auburn fans, I imagine this is a game they will replay in their minds for a long, long time.
