Ohio State sports web site BuckeyesWire.com asked before the 2020 CFP National Championship Game between LSU and Clemson, “Ohio State football fans should be rooting for LSU, obviously right?”
The logic behind that thought was because once upon a time in his college football career 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow was a Buckeye.
They also believed that Buckeyes fans should be rooting for LSU because the Clemson Tigers didn’t deserve to be in the title game because “the better team lost” in the semifinals in large part due to the referees.
Former Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry had a far different take.
That line of thinking didn’t go over well on Monday night.
Screw Clemson and their coach Opie Taylor. I hope LSU and Burrow curb stomp Clemson by 50+. I hate the SEC but I hate Clemson even more. They didn’t earn the right to play in this championship game, it was handed to them by a terrible biased @SECOfficiating crew— 🌰Buckeye Girl🌰 (@buckeyefan2000) January 13, 2020

Nor did the game itself as many Ohio State fans spent the game complaining about the Buckeyes not being in it.
Former Buckeye “Can’t Guard Mike” seemed pretty okay with the ending though.
