A lot of Ohio state fans probably won't admit this. But Urban turned Ohio state into a sec style program. Big physical defensive and offensive lines and smash mouth football is a sec trademark.

Classy kid for sure.

For those who have been on a hate mission against Ohio St, get used to this, they lost 6 starters including a Heisman Trophy candidate QB before the season started, lost Barrett who was a Heisman and then tossed in a 3rd string QB.

This has to be the best run for any team ever in the NCAA. The story is amazing in itself.

Most counted them out, TCU did not deserve a shot to be at 4 unless they replace Fla St and that was not going to happen.

Ohio St beat No 8 Wisconsin, No 2 Alabama and now No. 1 Oregon.

As far as the B10 goes, those who constantly complain about it need to stop.

The B10 proved they have the best conference overall in football this year.

The Pac, SEC, B12 all need to start working out a bit because Ohio St just proved they can physically destroy teams like they did with Alabama and Oregon.

What an amazing season for the National Champions!!

Wow.
First off congrats again to OSU. Color me impressed.

Bold: FSU should've been left out. They weren't a top 4 team regardless of what they did during their championship season. They proved that by their embarrassing effort against Oregon. Everyone who says they made the right choice putting FSU in the playoffs looks at the records and nothing else which is dumb.

Green: The B10 proved they have some great teams in their conference but they have too many poor to mediocre teams to be considered the best in my opinion. The B10 has 3 great teams (OSU MSU and Wisconsin) the rest are eh to bad. The PAC-12 SEC are probably the top 2, the Big 12 number 3 or 4, the B10 number 3 or 4 and the ACC number 5.

Blue: OSU is an impressive team. They could probably beat anyone (besides VA Tech , I kid I kid). I don't believe they got the opportunity to play the best team in the Championship game. They beat Alabama which was impressive, but I would've liked to see them play TCU. Maybe next year.

Again not trying to take anything away from what OSU did this season. I am very impressed.

Also Big10 trademarks.

They ran it up the gut all night. Can't get much more B10 than that.

Damn, I was rooting for the quacks. I've never been a fan of the Buckeyes, but congrats to them. They earned it, and beat two excellent teams.

Before anyone celebrates, remember the score was only 35-20 not really a dominant victory. No i predicted that the team to beat Oregon was Oregon and oregon did beat themselves with stupid mental errors. The experts where correct about the first half, oregon was beating themselves, easy wide open drop balls, stupid offensive penalties, not capitalising on mistakes and oppertunities. This was much like the arizona game which oregon themselves lost, limiting themselves to less then 200 yards rushing, making stupid mental mistakes. But the saying about football is true "any given sunday".

Much like the Fla st game, Oregon forced 5 turnovers, Oregon this season scored 130 points off turnovers this year. Like i said self imploaded. The team i saw today wasn't the one who scored 130 points off turnovers. Part of it had to do with Ohio St but most of it had to do with Oregon themselves.

But i will agree that Ohio St head coach had his team mentally prepared. Except for the opening drive

I disagree with this. Give credit where credit is due. OSU's O was much bigger than Oregon's D. And OSU's D was bigger than Oregon's O. That is why OSU beat Oregon. Oregon didn't lose they got beat. Oregon couldn't stop OSU's RB. Oregon couldn't stop OSU's passing attack. OSU forced Oregon to throw the ball more than they were used to which threw off the way Oregon usually plays. Thus Oregon wasn't as successful as they usually are.

Have any of you notice where most of your recent national champion coaches grew up played high school ball ?
It isn't down south in SEC land but Ohio or By God West Virginia they also played in the Big10 or the MAC-The Craddle of Legendary Coaches so shove that SEC smashmouth BS !
Yankee field generals brought smashmouth too you!

Lol.

Nonsense. Every team that loses can make the same exact excuses you made.

The fact of the matter is they won the turnover battle 4-0 and still only put 20 points on the board. (I'm not counting the interception that Mariota threw at the end, especially if you're not counting that last touchdown by OhSt.)

Without out those 4 turnovers OhSt might have put 55-60 points on the board.

A very soft defense that could not stop the run to save their life, and a hurry up offense system that causes it's soft defense to stay on the field, is why Oregon lost.

Yeah. Every since a&m joined the sec. More teams are starting to use spread in the sec. It will be interesting what chavis can do with a&m's defense since he left LSU. A&m should have a sec defense with a big 12 style offense. That should spell disaster for other teams. Congrats to Ohio state. My family in Youngstown Ohio should be happy. I have a feeling TCU will be right back in the discussion next year they get most of their team back.
