Week 1 is finally in the books, which means that we are in the best few months of the year if you are an Ohio State football fan. The Buckeyes struggled a little finding their footing against Minnesota in the first half on Thursday night but then took control in the second half to cover the spread and get out of the Twin Cities with an underappreciated and underrated win.

But OSU wasn’t the only team in action over the weekend. It was a glorious return to fans in the stands and big-time games that we all missed last year with COVI-19 wreaking havoc on nearly all areas of life.

When it was all said and done, there were plenty of surprises, expected results, and everywhere in between that gave us all a little better indication of where things stand.

ESPN’s panel of experts took note as well and projected the teams that will make the College Football Playoff. Of the twelve included in all the fun, you might be surprised that 11 of the 12 picked the Buckeyes to be a part of the four-team playoff.

So, which expert didn’t include Ohio State? Who did that panelist have in the playoff instead?

Okay, Connelly. UCLA and Cincinnati? Really? Way to be different and way out of left field here. There isn’t any way that both the Bearcats and Bruins get into the College Football Playoff. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course, but I will shave a UCLA and Bearcat logo on both sides of my head if that happens. Mark it down and check back later.
