Settling it on the field doesn’t mean the field has to be level.

Since its next semester doesn’t start until Monday, Ohio State isn’t bound by the NCAA’s 20-hour rule in preparing for the national title game.  Oregon is.

That seems fair.

    “an Ohio State spokesman said a priority has been making sure the players are rested and healthy.”

    Sure Corch.

    Way to go, NCAA. Make sure Oregon’s players are FOCUSED on syllabus review week.

    What a joke.

    According to @SIMandel they arent practicing that much. 2 hours the other day and took yesterday off. I really dont think that this is a big deal.

    In college football, the field is never level.

    I used to think that Tiny Tears, the GPOOE, was a demon imp spawned by the WWL but I see that Corch Dickhead is truly its Golem. He was anointed as the feel good comeback story somewhere around week 8 and the script has been written in his favor each week since then. Wally Butts and Bear Bryant once got slandered by the media. Now certain coaches and programs are pure media creations. All hail ESPN and its lickspittle lapdog the NCAA!

      I feel sorry for his family. He wanted to spend time with them and now he’s having to work all the way into the second week of January.

      Or maybe they all got sick of each other during his one year off.

    The start of Alabama’s 2016 second semester was just slid back a week.

    Oregon had a couple games under it’s belt before classes started in the fall, which wasn’t exactly fair to Michigan State, either. I don’t like it, but it’s a serious can a worms to open if someone took this one on. Perhaps it would be as easy as writing a rule “20-hour” applies to all participants in the playoff…but I doubt it.
