Those brave road warriors are Florida (@FSU - in state), Tennessee (@Oklahoma), Mizzou (@BYU), South Carolina (@Clemson - in state), Vandy (@Kansas State), Mississippi State (@NC State), Kentucky (@Louisville - in state), and Arkansas (@Notre Dame). Not exactly the cream of the conference playing those tough road games and 3 of them are in state matchups.

I was a student at Ohio State when Earle was fired, I'm quite aware of the how the fans viewed him. 

Cooper was so shocked, his next 4 teams after his 4-6-1 innaugural season couldn't match the record that got Earle fired.

Ohio State holds the series lead vs. ND with the only Irish wins coming in a time period when more than half of American homes lacked indoor plumbing. It has been more than 30 years since ND has won a national title, no one considers them "America's team".

It was 14-7 at that point and it would have resulted in a 3rd dkwn conversion rather than a punt.

So you have a path (due to your blue blood reputation, large fan base, the Big10's perceived or real strength, whatever) that is not open to Clemson

Um, you realize Ohio State was left out of the previous 2 playoffs, right?

Jordan's scoop and score wasn't misinterpreted, it was reofficiated. 

Comment 30 Dec 2019

Did Clemson execute? They had: 

  • Less passing yards
  • Less rushing yards
  • Less total yards
  • Less offensive plays
  • Less time of possession
  • A lower passing completion percentage
  • A lower 3rd down conversion percentage
  • No 4th down conversions

The only advantages they had were turnovers (which they would not have had if the scoop and score rightfully stood) and penalty yards. Oh, and favorable replay calls, including initiating a review after a play was being run that was going to result in a TD.  They had advantages in that too.
