Pissing Off "The Haters" Ohio State Makes the CFB Final Four

Almost as much fun as having "Thee" Ohio State Buckeyes making the National Championship Playoffs for the 2nd time in three years{they won it all in 2014} is the gnashing of teeth by those that hate this team...

Guess that's why I root for Duke in Basketball and OSU in Football...sure as far as the latter, I'm from Ohio, son Sam graduated from OSU in 2012....but the loathing from those that despise both Duke Roundball and OSU Football is a sight to behold....I enjoy poking my fingers in the eyes, Social Media Speaking, of the "Haters"....

With Ohio State sitting home, due to the tie breaker set up in the Big Ten, the #2 Ranked Buckeyes were almost assured of a spot in the Final 4....but don't tell that to Penn State fans or the others that hate OSU Football.  They wanted that spot, because if the Nit Wit Lions won the B1G over Wisconsin{which they did in come from behind fashion} they, despite 2 early season loses, including a 49-10 ass kicking at Michigan, OSU's Arch Rival{who the Buckeyes defeated in two overtimes the week before} would have beaten Ohio State and won the Big Ten Title....Frankly good arguments...but no way that PSU's "Resume" was close to Ohio State's and the Selection Committee thought the same...thus here are the Final Four:



With Penn State on the outside at #5....and they get the Rose Bowl against USC...a game they might be capable of winning...a #4 slotted PSU team, IMO, would have had almost NO chance of beating #1 Alabama....neither does Washington.  On the other side, Ohio State and their opponent Clemson, both have a better match-up vs the defending Champions....OSU beat Bama in the 2014 Semis on their way to the crown....and this young team, while not yet as good as the 14 squad are certainly on that way....

In all honesty I think Penn State, Wisconsin, Michigan, and even Oklahoma, are better than Washington....but you know the committee really doesn't want 2 teams from one conference vying for the title come January 9th plus the Sooners shot themselves in the foot early on by losing to Houston at a Texas site and at home to the Buckeyes....and you can't blame the committee, that would be a ratings disaster, having say Michigan and OSU in the Championship Game....well except for Big Ten Fans and those of us here in the Midwest.


In the meantime, for Penn State fans and other "Haters" ....Suck It Up Buttercups....the Committee has spoken and there is not a damn thing you can do, but bitch about it....
