I loves me some good ‘ol college football. The wind went out of my sails when Ohio State upset my beloved Alabama Crimson Tide 42-35 on New Year’s Day. It is because of that that I will be rooting for the Oregon Ducks in the CFP Championship.
The game kicks off at 8:30 PM ET from the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX and will air on ESPN.
I have never followed Oregon football, but I’ve heard it said often that they are “soft” and are a “finesse” team. Oregon has a record of 70-10 since 2009 and only Alabama has a better record (72-9).
Ohio State is the underdog in this game according to many sports “experts” but it’s important to remember they defeated the Ducks 26-17 in the 2010 Rose Bowl. If Oregon goes with a hurry-up offense those big ‘ol defensive linemen for the Buckeyes won’t be able to keep up. They’ll be grabbing their knees and sucking wind most of the game.
I predict the Bucs will be cryin’ on the plane ride back to Columbus and that will make me happy.
And because no football post would be complete without some pom-poms, here is a lovely Duck cheerleader.
