    That may be the worst call I have ever seen in watching football for 50+ years. No flag on the field........’booth review’........who knew❓‍♂️

    I almost never watch college football anymore and my luck, I turn on the game and this is the first play I see. Totall BS call and totally took the air out of Clemson. It’s been all downhill since.

    Edit to add: I have to wonder if the tackler was black and the quarterback White would the booth have ruled the same? I’d wager they would not have.

    It's definitely true that feminism and anti-white racism have severely dumbed down the service academies. As far as football goes, the academies typically rely on run-heavy offenses combined with a few simple throws, things that even quotabacks can handle.

    My assumption watching this game, is that Clemson played about as poorly as they possibly could. Is that a fair assessment? It seems like they've just been “off” and have really let things snowball.

    I watched the 1st half - Clemson came out strong on the first drive and then sputtered on offense. I found it interesting that the offensive coordinator tested positive for covid and could not call the game remotely and was barred from communicating. I can’t think of any school that has benefitted more from the scamdemic than OSU. Back to the game - Clemson’s all black secondary was atrocious - tons of blown coverages resulting in big plays. I’m still not a believer in Justin Fields never will be either as he plays in the second most qb friendly offense behind Oklahoma. Skalksi’s hard hit was the highlight as we got to see the frog faced quota grimace in pain.

    Justin Fields does look like Pepe The Frog.

    At least this season is finally limping to an end.

    Looks like the powers that be are trying to get one of the Alabama skill position players to win the heisman. Just saw a clip on bspn about the Alabama rb’s leap over a defender and compared it with other leaps from Eraserhead and Leveon Bell to see which is the best of all time...Brian Leonard’s leap was nowhere to be found which was one of the best plays/displays of athleticism I have seen.

    There should be an "Overrated Bowl" with Ohio State vs. Alabama each year, and then the "Real Bowl" for the actual championship.

    I don’t think Alabama is overrated to be honest. Saban recruits the best black player in the country and assembles a good team every year. He’s fully caste but a good coach. My gripe is that the media has used Alabama as the indicator that the SEC is the best conference with the best players which is entirely a lie. SEC players including Alabama players bust all the time once they reach the NFL.

    Ohio St - they are overrated

    Even great teams and players can be overrated. There's no doubt that Alabama is a very good team, but I would still call them overrated because year after year they're promoted by the media as the single greatest standard that every other college team should aspire to, which is not accurate.

    A similar situation exists with Pat Mahomes - he's a very good quarterback, but media figures like Aunt Crissy regularly speak of him as the "greatest of all time," which he isn't.

    Kiffin sucks. The announcing crew was talking up Plumlee before the game.
    Actually cited him as an “impact player”, saying he’d be all over the place.....
    Hardly anything...He dropped a pass early and barely has seen the field since...

    First two words ring true.

    Iowa State seems to have a lot of whites on their offensive and they are ranked #10. I'm definitely going to follow Iowa State more.

    Looks like Cristobal went with the BC transfer quota. He should of consulted with Steve Addazio on how that went for him.

    Mac Jones to Bolden for the TD - Refs are calling it short of the goal line however the replay shows the ball passing the white line.

    Mac Jones is pretty damn good - very overlooked in terms of the draft. Throws a real accurate ball too.

    He's also superior to Fields as a qb and draft prospect. He should be a top 15 pick.

    Fowler and Herbie just fawning over Davonte Smith’s skills of catching ball after ball against Ohio state’s “socially distanced” defense
