A sampling of what’s been written about Ohio State taking down Alabama

I was in the Horseshoe the night Virginia Tech was there. Obviously, Ohio State would improve from that humbling defeat. But who saw this coming? Who saw J.T. Barrett setting records? Who saw Cardale Jones winning the two biggest games of the season? This script continues to write itself. Predicting what will happen in Texas next Monday night … I won’t even try.

buckeyes roll onAll I know is that today Ohio State fans are still feeling the joy that was last night in New Orleans. Parties are the norm on the bayou, but what’s more fun than beating Alabama and helping to take the SEC down a notch?

The weird thing is that now there’s another game. College football now knows what it feels like to reach the one sweet nightFinal Four or the Super Bowl or the World Series. Enjoy this for 24 hours, then get ready to win a championship. This has been a long time coming in college football.

But for now, let’s enjoy this victory. I’ve watched the postgame talk and seen what Cowherd and the like are saying this morning. And I’ve been trolling the web to what’s being said in Ohio, Alabama and across the country.

There are lots of videos online with pieces of the OSU postgame news conference. Here’s a transcript.

And here’s your basic game roundup from the Dayton Daily News complete with short videos by reporter David Jablonski and WHIO’s Mike Hartsock. If you want to see some postgame photos, there are several in this gallery by Jablonski.

The big question when this playoff is over (shoot, it’s a big question now): Who will be OSU’s starting quarterback next year? This New York Times story doesn’t answer that question, but it’s a revealing look into who J.T. Barrett is (not much new if you have followed his story closely) and who Cardale Jones has become.

The Lantern (OSU student paper) gives us a lookahead to Bucks vs. Ducks.

And I leave you with this early favorite for tweet of the year:
