    But, no one wants to see another Clemson beatdown of OSU. Except for the people on this board....and in Alabama.

    Doesn't matter if Alabama is in or out. Finebaum is a HUGE Alabama fan. He'll keep talking about them.

    I can already see where this is gonna be a sticky wicket....Alabama is ranked ahead of OSU in the AP poll.

    Edit....I was typing that as other posters were posting the Playoff match-ups. Needless to say, if OSU had gotten in with Bama ranked higher in the AP--just more chaos.

    OSU has no room to complain based on last year's playoff invitation.

    You want to beef, Urban, yell at your team for getting smacked by Iowa.
