That dog fight can be a good thing. Ohio State battled back against Alabama and then smoked an Oregon team who'd smoked Florida State in the game prior.
If I can call it like I see it here, I think a lot of the people complaining about injustice and getting "shafted" are frankly using this as a smokescreen for the fact that they're flat out scared of Clemson. And that's fine, by the way. They're the defending champs and the 2016 blowout is still visible in the rearview. I get it.
As for me, I'd rather eschew all the "SOS" statistics and just state the obvious truth: Clemson is the defending champion and there's a reason no one wanted to play them. If you want to unseat them, beat them.
Or as Robert Tepper once put it: There's no ea-sy way OuuTtTTttt!
Go Bucks. Beat Clemson.
