I didn’t take it that way.  You always have to ID a guy.  He was probably just one guy in a locker room.     The cop decided against arresting him.  (Probably also because he was vastly outnumbered in a room full of big guys.). But when he found out the identity of the offender later, it enabled him to charge.

I’m sure in their minds, Shaun Wade should have been ejected, but not their guy.

they got away with a launch at Dobbins in the Fiesta, didn’t they?

IIRC Parson’s own father said Ohio State had basically stopped recruiting him before the Gameday violation.  There was a feeling that Ohio State really wasn’t giving up anything when they self-reported that recruiting violation and agreed to stop the recruitment.

I still haven’t let it go.  Yes, the Buckeyes had opportunities to overcome the bad/biased officiating but didn’t.  Still, they shouldn’t have had to overcome the bad/biased officiating and I believe it altered the outcome of the game.  And I worry it could happen again.

ESPN didn’t have to pay the officials to infect their decision making.  They are constantly pumping up the SEC and Clemson and even published an article extolling the CFP seeding as setting up an LSU-Clemson final the entire country wanted to see (no disrespect to Ohio State of course).   The bad calls showed that the refs at least had an ingrained bias against Ohio State even if there wasn’t actual corruption.

That is all true but unfortunately ESPN is still driving the narrative in college football that SEC / Clemson is better than everyone else including Ohio State.  ESPN even published an article that the seeding set up the LSU-Clemson final that the whole nation wanted, no offense to Ohio State.  I believe this narrative set up a bias that infected the officiating and altered the result of the game.  Herbstreit is more ESPN than Ohio State and he’s part of the problem as far as I’m concerned.  Having said as much, I’m not out there attacking him on social media.

Thoughts?  I’m thinking LSU was gifted a pretty sizable advantage with that no. 1 seeding, and they are gifted another sizable advantage with a home game for the final.
