They're an experienced team, well coached, went undefeated, and has consistently been there. So giving them a slight edge doesn't bother me one bit. And being a slight underdog should motivate this Buckeye team too.

    The only way you beat all the media BS is by going out there, proving them wrong, and just winning.

    These are four talented teams, powered by very similar offenses and talented QBs. IMO, it's going to be a defensive coordinator's nightmare because these so-called elite defenses that everyone brags and harps on all season ... turns into a pumpkin come play-off time. And it's going to be the same this year too IMO.

    It's all about match-ups.

    Clemson-Ohio State? The match-up is closer then before ('16). Who is going to control that line of scrimmage? Clemson has to stop our running game. Their run D is tops, right there with Ohio State. For the Buckeyes it's about exerting pressure on QB Lawrence, and a HUGE test for our secondary.

    If there is a Buckeye fan who says they aren't worried about this upcoming game then they're in denial (LOL).

    Yeah, Ohio State can win this game IMO. Tough test. But I like it. Because if they beat Clemson they've already passed "the" test, and it shows me, yeah, they can beat LSU.

    But first things first.
    I agree with most of this, but just a point to quibble, it’s not the same Clemson team. They don’t have Ferrell, Wilkins and Lawrence who all went in the first round and were an absolutely terrifying defensive line. I still think Clemson is elite and they replaced those guys with good guys, but it’s not the same. I think it’s shifted from a massive advantage for Clemson the last couple seasons to an advantage for OSU. But like I said in the OSU thread, it’s a little hard to tell due to Clemsons lack of competition and will be interesting to watch early.

    As for losing to Clemson if it were to happen, there's no shame in that. I sure wouldn't call OSU a failure for that
    I thought this title was created by a Kentucky/WVU fan?

    Think it comes down to Fields being near 100%. They will need the full playbook to beat Clemson

    Beating defending champion, 28-game winning streak Clemson with 2021 1a QB Trevor Lawrence

    Then having to defeat LSU in New Orleans with 2020 1a QB Joe Burrow

    A duanting task and arguably would be the most earned championship in NCAA History

    Yeah, can we square this up before going forward? I've read "typical OSU fans" and "sounds like that fan has an inferiority complex".

    But is it even a OSU fan?

    It's a UK Football Fan. (yes apparently they exist)

    The title should be changed by a moderator as the title is clearly an intent to troll Buckeye Nation

    So (unconfirmed) it was a troll at OSU fans. But it was done by a non-OSU fan.

    And (confirmed) some others used the thread title to get some digs in. (“Nuts”, “Typical OSU fan”)

    And none of any of this was done by fans (in the sense that OSU is their favorite team) of OSU.

    And it’s been asked in this very thread “why is it always about the Buckeyes”.

    Interesting.

    Feel free to change the title. If I knew it was going to cause this much of an uproar, Iíd have opted for something else.

    I apologize to any Ohio State fan who took it as trolling.

    What's wrong with asking the question "why is it Buckeyes against the World?"

    Plus the run up was three straight games against teams ranked in the Top 12. Can’t wait!

    It blows my mind that I've watched this OSU team destroy the Big 10 all season, all victories by double digits, completely annihilating many opponents, Top 5 Offense AND Defense, 2 Heisman finalists...and yet its an UNDERDOG in the CFP. Wow. I'm not questioning WHY OSU is the underdog (Clemson is loaded) but its amazing to have a season like this and NOT be the overwhelming standout and even in a discussion as one of the best teams ever.

    It is no surprise to me that it created an uproar. Just sayin'...
