Think Ohio State Fans Are Annoying Now? Wait until the Browns Are Good

Never argue with stupid. Stupid will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience. But really, no one wins Ohio State football arguments. Welcome to a day in the life of knowing way too many people from Columbus, OH.

You are thinking irrationally if you think there is something more irrational than an Ohio State Football fan. Wow, this is actually the longest I have thought about OSU Football and not had someone talk over me. Anyway, Ohio State fans are the worst. They are the ones who think they should get preferential treatment by the CFP committee, because their coach’s head hurt for a little bit. They actually think that Dwayne Haskins should have won the Heisman. They still complain about Joey Bosa getting kicked out the Fiesta Bowl for targeting.

That last one is absolutely true. OSU fans cited the fact it was “his last game in an OSU uniform” and “their feelings” for why blatant rule violations should be ignored.

Find me an easier call, I’ll wait.

The question stands: could Ohio State Football fans get more annoying? If they had a good NFL team, would they split their attention to half OSU and half Cleveland Browns? Here’s the thing. There is no limit to their irrationality. They will be worse.

The Browns have made all the biggest moves this offseason. To help out Baker and the boys, Cleveland has added Kareem Hunt and Odell Beckham Jr. on offense and Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon on defense. Surely, this will make the Browns a successful team especially in dilapidated AFC North.

With the new success will come more fans. Namely, Ohio State fans who have way too much pride in their godforsaken state. I would love to be able to cheer for the Browns, but the sudden influx of OSU fans will make them like the Patriots. A team worth cheering for, but also a fanbase nobody wants to be associated with.

I wonder if they will need a chant to remember how to spell “Browns”. Probably yes, since they need one for O-H-I-O. Careful, Buckeyes, this is one of those tricky 6 letter words.

12 Programs Won an NCAA Tournament Game and a Bowl Game This Year

Depending on the program, doing just one of these is a feat in itself. Marshall winning an NCAA tourney game is major step in the right direction and Kentucky or Duke winning a bowl game is basically unheard of.

This sabermetric is cool in the way that your school winning a Cheerleading and Rifle title in the same year is cool. No one cares, but it’s worth mentioning. Also, the fact that only 12 teams did this brings a trump card to any rivalry argument.

The 12 teams to win an NCAA Tournament game and a Bowl game are:
Alabama
Kentucky
Texas A&M
Ohio State
Marshall
Auburn
Cincinnati
Clemson
Duke
Florida
Nevada
Syracuse

If you would have asked me 5 years ago who would be on this list, I would have said Florida, Ohio State and Louisville. Three schools who are usually consistent at both sports. I definitely would not have said Alabama or Clemson, because they seem a little focused on football every year, and I also would have left out Duke and Kentucky because their football teams have been nonexistent some years. I could not be happier for Marshall though. Major step for their program.

Justin Fields Transfers to Ohio State

Georgia Quarterback Justin Fields has announced that he will be transferring to Ohio State University. After a year of backing up Jake Fromm, the former number one overall recruit is looking to play now. He will appeal immediately for his eligibility.

What does this mean for Ohio State? Haskins still hasn’t declared yet and they have Tate Martell who is very viable option as his replacement. Ohio State and Ryan Day are smart enough not to add another 5 star quarterback to their roster. That amount of competition always leads to chaos. Just look at what happened at Clemson.

This could only mean that Dwayne Haskins will be declaring for the draft and Day is looking to create a quarterback battle. Either way, Ohio State is going to come out on top with another incredible arm in the backfield.

RIPIP to My Takes That Died in 2018

I like to make bold statements about sports. They annoy people who take sports too seriously and they pretty much never have to be right. There isn’t even a guarantee that takes will ever get proven wrong. My favorite part is that getting 1/10 right makes me look like a genius.

Since I started Soft 7 Sports in September, I have made my fair share of bold statements. Aside from a couple coaches getting fired, my takes have missed almost every time. So as a blogger with integrity, I have this thing called bloggeristic integrity and it is time to own up to my mistakes from this past year. Here are all of my takes that did not make it to the new year:

Ohio State: Lock for CFP
Big time swing and a miss on this one. How was I supposed to know that Purdue was going to wax them by 30?

Bengals Will Win AFC North
To be fair, they were 4-1 and had no plans of hiring Hue Jackson at the time I wrote this. They were poised to win it, but fell apart worse than Steelers. I figured that even if they didn’t win the division, they would at least sneak into the playoff as the 6 seed or something, but no. They had to come in last in the AFC North.

Could Kentucky Go 10-2?
Okay I almost had this one. I wrote this after week 1 or 2 of the college football season and it would have come true and would have made me look so smart if Kentucky didn’t lose to Tennessee of all teams. This was the first article I wrote for Soft 7 so I am proud my Cats ended up at 10-3 after beating Penn State in the Citrus Bowl.

I’m Not Impressed with Clemson
Their schedule is still garbage and they will lose to Bama in the CFP Final, but I’ll admit it. I like Clemson again. A lot of takes in this article, and they ALL fell flat.

Jimmy Butler Perfect for Meme Team
Turns out he wanted nothing to do with the Lakers…

Is Nathan Peterman in the Mafia?
He’s on the practice squad for the Raiders. So, I’d say no.

Still No Respect for UCF
One of our most viewed articles, but after that loss to LSU in the Fiesta Bowl, they are no longer MY National Champions.

CFP Rankings 11/26/18

Week 13 of College Football brought a major shake up to the top 10. Don’t worry, I am sure the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will waste no time letting their biases get the best of them and getting the whole thing wrong. Rest assured, ya boy is here to set the record straight.

  1. Alabama (12-0)- Duh.
  2. Notre Dame (12-0)- The Irish gave us a scare this past weekend versus USC. Going into halftime down 3 placed Notre Dame’s ass firmly in the jackpot. Just like the Bible, another Book helped lead them to victory. Great comeback to finish the season undefeated. 
  3. Clemson (12-0)- Wow! The Tigers put up 56 points against an unranked, barely bowl-eligible team! Unreal. How do they do it? Clemson’s schedule is such a joke this year. Keep in mind they gave up 510 yards and 5 touchdowns to Jake Bentley. A guy who is such a cheap knockoff of what a quarterback is supposed to be, I call him Jake Kia.
  4. UCF (11-0)- Gotta let them in. Now is your chance, CFP Selection Committee. Make an example out of them! They won’t do it though. Knowing the committee, they will use McKenzie Milton’s knee explosion injury as a reason not to put them in the top 4. Ya know, the same reason they kept out Ohio State when they were on their third stringer in 2015.
  5. Georgia (11-1)- Not too impressive of a win against Georgia Tech, but they got the job done. Good win.
  6. Ohio State (11-1)- Made a hell of a case for themselves this past weekend. The Buckeyes put an end to Michigan’s “Revenge Tour” by hanging a 60 burger on them. They won 62-39. What a performance by Dwayne Haskins too. 396 yards and 6 touchdowns against Michigan should put him on anyone’s Heisman Watch. I’d love to see him throw for 800 and 8 on Clemson.
  7. Oklahoma (11-1)- Another week, another game the Sooners refuse to play defense. They gave up 56 points to West Virginia and still won. Luckily for them, they are one of the worst teams to get into a shootout with.
  8. Michigan (10-2)- Brutal loss to Ohio State. This was an absolute killer to their season and they will need all of the help to get into the playoff now. There is still hope, Wolverine fans. Just kidding, your dreams are dead.
  9. Washington State (10-2)- Their loss last Friday to Washington does not seem so bad in comparison to others. Either way, my dreams of a Mike Leach championship are over. As are Mike Leach’s. 
  10. Texas (9-3)- Say what you will, but they are the best 3-loss team. A good season with good wins will get you some good rewards. You can catch the Longhorns next at the Big 12 Championship. And guess what? They are playing a team they already beat in the Oklahoma Sooners.
