Beat me to it because I procrastinate. I was contemplating starting a similar thread about Clemson karma. The touchdown that was taken off the board because of offensive PI was more karma.

I'll definitely watch it because it has two of the best college football teams going at each other and it's an excuse to drink beer. I won''t root for either team since I can't stand the idea of Clemson winning another title and I don't want the SEC to claim the #1 spot (though I like Burrow). 

I think Clemson will score one more touchdown than LSU because their defense will stop LSU one more time than LSU stops Clemson 42-35.

As a long time lurker and one who posts infrequently I signed in to reply.  Thank you for defending the in-stadium experience!  It IS magical - not just for the big games but all of them.  The collective roar and high fives with a dozen or so equally passionate fans when something good happens is an unbelievable rush and can't be replicated while sitting at home.  In fact, it doesn't even matter if it's a roar due to a positive play for our beloved Buckeyes, a crowd groan because something negative happened or group outrage for a bad call, it's all a rush.  The brotherhood, as DuckBuck called it, is intoxicating.  So is the beer and whatever gets smuggled in - by others, of course.     

I'm in my 50s and I confess I spend too much on attending OSU football games.  And it's a lot of work; prepping, packing and setting up the tailgate, then tearing it down to go into the game.  I get there hours before the majority of the crowd does so I can get a good spot.  I stand for a majority of the tailgate and most of the game.  And I love it!    

I still get goose bumps when the band comes out of the tunnel.  Actually, I have goose bumps now just from getting this rant out on the interwebz.  Live is better than TV!!!

Seriously, everyone is entitled to their opinion and I get that watching college football on TV is satisfying.  I watch a lot (too much?) from my couch and enjoy it.  It must be that I took a major swig of the magical elixir that is Buckeye football in the 'Shoe and want more of it, every game, every year.

Who's with me??????

I’m surprised and disappointed. It was the only sports radio worth listening to.

I haven't been there in a long time but ate there many times when I was in school.  The last time I ate there I realized the food wasn't that good, really.  Back in the day we called it the blown dube.

This could end up being a trivial rule change for QBs.  For the 2018 Buckeyes what are the chances that there is a blowout big enough that there is playing time for 4 quarterbacks?  Wouldn't you want QB2 to get a bunch of mop-up time followed by the rest of it for QB3?  Playing time is so precious and hard to come by for QBs I can't imagine playing QB4.  Of course, I could be wrong.  At other positions I can see the benefit.

I have a buddy that is a Buckeye fan but moved to Georgia about 10 years ago.  In the time since he moved UGA has become his second team to cheer for.  As a result, I'm in a predicament.  On one hand, I don't want to see an all-SEC NCG - especially one with Alabama involved.  And I have to work tomorrow so my opportunity to drink is very limited.  On the other hand, my buddy is very pumped and will be texting me and fully expects that I'll be watching and rooting for UGA the way he roots for tOSU.  In addition, I'm a huge college football fan, it's the last game of the season and last year's NCG was great.  I'll probably end up watching; maybe not the whole game but some of it (unless it's a really tight game like last year). 

Don't tell my buddy but I think 'Bama is going to stuff the UGA offense the same way they did to Clemson and overpower the UGA defense.  It might be over by mid-third quarter or earlier.

I don't agree with you but your post didn't deserve DVs, IMO.  

No way I can root for Bama or Clemson, it would hurt OSU recruiting.  I don't mind UGA except they're SEC.  OK has Mayfield and he's a douche.  For me, I hope the winner of OK/UGA stomps Clemson after they blast Bama.  I want it to look as if the committee made a mistake in the #4 slot.
