I’ve spent the last 11 months waking up in sweats. I have nightmares of 4th and 1. I have Jeff Heuerman’s missed block replaying in my head.
And now, I have the chance to erase all the pain.
Here’s to shifting the pain of defeat. The pain of coming so close, but remaining so far. The pain that takes you one big game away from the playoff and then rips it out of your hands.
Today, the Buckeyes take on Sparty in East Lansing to end the wild day in College Football. In honor of the blessed day of sports, here are the game previews of the top 7 games in 140 characters or less:
Baylor @ Oklahoma
Kick off your day with a mimosa and Bryce Petty. Don’t make any drinking games to this one. Or do, and sleep through the remaining 9 games…
Prediction: Baylor 37 Oklahoma 24
Georgia @ Kentucky
Big Blue covers +10.5, upsets the Dawgs on the back of all 10,000 fans in the stands. The overrated SEC puts another team into the top 25
Prediction: Georgia 27 Kentucky 31
Notre Dame @ Arizona State
It’s time for all teams with Arizona in their name to get the hell out of the top 25. Irish claim a spot in the top 5 after a beatdown in Tempe
Prediction: Notre Dame 35 Arizona State 17
Kansas State @ TCU
Stop the game after the first quarter and you’ll have more points than you get all night in Lansing. Boykin for Heisman.
Prediction: Kansas State 35 TCU 48
Alabama @ LSU
Prediction: Alabama 17 LSU 24
Oregon @ Utah
This is just a beat down. Oregon solidifies themselves as a playoff team by smacking a weak Utah team… the same team to beat T.T.U.N. Go Ducks.
Prediction: Oregon 57 Utah 24
Ohio State @ Michigan State
Redemption. Sparty fans all over end their night draining their sorrows away to cheap whiskey and Frank Sinatra. #GoBucks
Prediction: Ohio State 24 Michigan State 13
I’ll be looking forward to celebrating the victory of “The School Up North-State” beating the Bucks tonight – and, along with my glass of Scotch, yes, I will be enjoying a little Frank Sinatra music in the background!
