The Ohio State Buckeyes take the first College Football Playoff title with their convincing win over the favorite, Oregon. The Buckeyes played with a chip on their shoulder all season long, routinely being slotted as the underdog in big games. Not many champions have had the adversity that OSU was saddled with this season. But on this night in Dallas, with their third string quarterback and facing an offense that run plays faster than a video game – the Bucks were superior. Although Vegas and the majority of analysts wrote off Ohio State back in September, why don’t we feel more surprised by this? Part of the understanding comes from arguably the best coach in the game being on the sideline or the fact that the third string QB could start at 90% of NCAA schools next year. Ohio State is littered with 5-star talent and a great coaching staff. Their early season loss seemed to be a blessing in disguise after the confetti fell Monday night. Their preseason Heisman hopeful, Braxton Miller did not ever take a snap this season. Their next man in line, JT Barrett righted the ship the best he could for 11 weeks but he too fell due to injury. This 2014 Buckeyes team will go down in the record books for the first CFP Title but they will also be remembered for the way they got there and performed along the way – gutsy and together.
