I’m not crazy enough to pick OSU to win the game by any means because the defense is so bad, but the offense is legit. OSU has the athletes to match up to Clemson, ND had to have the perfect game plan today and BK got outcoached. So yeah if you would have told me in 2016 that OSU got shutout I would have said you were crazy. But this isn’t 2016.
    OSU is very good. However they only scored 27 against Penn State. 30 against Minnesota. 20 against Purdue and 26 against Michigan State. So I dont find it to hard to believe that Clemsons defense which is a lot better than those defenses, would be able to keep OSU 17 or under. In fact I think they would have a good shot at keeping them 17 or under.

    Notre Dame had no business in the playoffs, I wonder if they even would have been .500 in the SEC, and Georgia and Ohio State are clearly better than Notre Dame.

    Either the playoffs need to be expanded a bunch or College Football needs to stop with the "good ole boy" rankings system and turn to Vegas for something more objective.
    I doubt Georgia or OSU would have done anything against Clemson either.
    I feel Clemson is about where Alabama is at this time.
    Fact is, the playoff wasn’t really needed this year.

    Ohio State offense matches up very well with Clemson’s defense. Clemson’s secondary is mediocre. Book had a bad day and wasn’t able to exploit it.

    I was going to say this year has been a good argument against expanding the playoffs but this post makes a good point. Go ahead and make it 8 and watch teams get rolled to shut the wanna be fans up.

    Fortunately for you, you can say whatever you want, and you will have that shadow of a doubt to stand on.

    Clemson is better than OSU. Period. Go ahead and posture all you want.

    Unfortunately for you OSU didn't take care of business to have a prayer of being there.

    Top 20 pass defense...I wouldn't call that mediocre.

    Luckily for OSU they wont have to face it.

    I think the reason Ohio State gets so much talk on the Kentucky board is because Kentucky usually stinks in football and in basketball, they seem to be able to blow a sure thing.

    A. I'm not glad that they got in.

    2. I'm glad that they got hammered

    D. This season's lessons most likely won't be learned and they'll be overrated again next season. Not their fault - just the way it is.

    This doesn't even make sense.

    Clemson is better than OSU. I’ve said as much in this very thread...

    Clemsonís secondary is not great. They have a great D line that alleviates a lot of the pressure on them. But the actual secondary is mediocre. They gave up over 500 yards in the air to a bad South Carolina team like 3 weeks ago. Any Clemson fan will tell you that their secondary isnít great.

    Surely you know, that any team can have a bad week against an inferior team.

    Bottom line their pass defense is not mediocre, doesn't matter if it's due to coverage or pressure. Who's to say they wouldn't have pressured OSU into a poor passing performance also?
