There will be a big stink about that last play, but if you ask me it'll be much ado about nothing. No way in hell can you overturn a touchdown on a play we see in the NFL on a weekly basis. Minnesota would've been totally jobbed by that kind of replay overreach.

Saints have no one to blame but themselves. Horrible, horrible clock management.

Herbie's heart is with the Buckeyes. He just - at times - has overcompensated and overreached in an effort to not seem like a homer. I always think back to the Ohio State/Arkansas Sugar Bowl, after which he dropped Ohio State in his rankings after beating the Razorbacks.

He's never found that balance between not wearing Scarlet & Gray flair and not alienating the fanbase.

I don't think he's particularly adept at managing Twitter, either. But then again, who is? Twitter is basically an agitation machine for sports personalities to spend endless hours tweaking fanbases. Herbie routinely succumbs to its traps.

My retroactive favorite moment is watching Harbaugh wave his arms in excitement after his team's first touchdown. It's impossible to not get all warm and fuzzy, thinking of how the game went after that.

I have a hard time referring to anything Penn State does as part of "we."

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.

I hate to take attention away from the team's departing and beloved coach, but I'm reading comments that contain words and phrases such as "eye test," "committee," "not a good look," Like... guys, you know the season just ended, right? The beauty pageant is over. Enjoy the win for like, five seconds. The only thing that will be remembered about this game is Ohio State winning it.

Yes! Exactly. The players don't care, why should we?

The only thing that will be a bad look for Ohio State is losing to Washington. The idea that another team's performance in a completely different game is somehow going to reflect poorly on Ohio State is silly. Michigan wasn't exactly a world beater in 2014. I'd say Ohio State was just fine that year. Conference bowl records are meaningless, and almost instantly forgotten at the start of the next year. Just get those damn roses. That's all that matters now.
