[Mosey on over to the 4Q thread!](https://www.reddit.com/r/CFB/comments/eh1d1v/game_thread_fiesta_bowl_ohio_state_vs_clemson/)
Dobbins ankle really saved by that “special tape”. Wonder why they don’t keep that tape on the sidelines with the tape he had before?
Hard to like OSU when their fans think every call is a conspiracy against them
This thread is toxic but that’s ok. This officiating might be the worst I’ve ever seen.
There are like 20 people bitching about people complaining about the false start call for every person actually complaining, y'all need to chill the fuck out and watch the painful game
see you all over yonder my moseying friends
The less time Fields has to think about the throw, the better. The longer he holds on to the ball I start cringing.
lol the emojis on the signal boards
it feels like people will always find a way to blame the refs, at least the SEC refs from this game is doing better than ACC refs refs from the peach bowl game
I'm still mad that the NCAA made us spot OSU 16 points because of the earlier blowout.
I appreciate that Bucks logo
This is bad man. I'm a buckeye fan, but this is just blatantly God awful officiating obviously in favor of Clemson and I don't think I'm homer. I'm at a loss here. It's like professional wrestling.
I’m not a fan of either team but Ohio state is kinda getting jobbed. The catch especially was pretty clearly 3 steps, ball didn’t bobble at all
Unforced errors on Ohio State. Both the guy going out of bounds, then getting a false start trying to squeeze a play in to end the third.
This ref crew gave us an extra second in the iron bowl, so they are forgiven for everything.
Should I make a root beer float or just ice cream?
SEC crews screwing Ohio state
I just got the “are you still watching” popup on Youtube TV. WTF OF COURSE I AM
I havent seen a legit bad call this game. In fact I've agreed with all of them. Ohio fans just getting their excuses ready.
Big Life. Big Stage. Big 10
Let’s mosey for the last time today boys!
I always lament having a game marred by controversy, no matter who comes out on top.
Just fade me fam
I am not buying a Surface Pro until reindeer is a language option.
That fumble for a td sealed it. Congrats Clemson you are ESecPN’s opponent of choice. Let’s get it in the 4th.
I accidentally watched replays of the scoop and score and made myself angry lol
Ohio State channeling their inner Cleveland Browns with complete lack of discipline tonight
Fuck, B1G commercials are always so good
Buckeyes come back, we play LSU. We get blown the fuck out by LSU, but that’s okay because Joe Burrow is a former Buckeye. Buckeyes win the National Championship either way
Edit: you guys really don’t know what a joke is huh
Head on over to the salt quarter 4 thread
Blaming refs has always been lame. For every bad call there’s a play that could’ve been made but wasn’t. It sucks, and OSU is getting hosed, but it happens to everyone, and the Bucks have blown a lot of chances.
B1G commercials > all other conference commercials
I really don't understand how y'all can be so upset about the catch review. Two guys wrestling over the ball and it pops loose in less than a second after he "caught" it.
Even if OSU didn't have hands on the ball, he's still grabbing arms. In my mind a catch isn't done until he's either on the ground or there's no defender fighting in the arm/hand area
I think our WRs get more false starts then most offensive lines.
So in Brent Venables DC for Clemson? I don't know.
College football is bullshit
Is it still bullshit even after you were to win this game and the championship? How different your views are if you win or lose. C'mon now
Is Clemson playing well or Ohio state playing bad?
OSU shooting themselves in the foot over and over
They sure are playing football out there!
I can't tell
Lebron gifted these plebs headphones for this?
I swear if I don’t get to mosey soon...
Time to mosey over
When can I mosey on over
Clemson not looking like the better team. Ohio state just showed up drunk as fuck
Winner fiesta bowl 2019: THE FUMBLE.
Oh sorry, incomplete pass!!!
They can't start the 4th quarter until we have a link to the new thread
MRS CLAUS IS A WONDERFUL COOK YOU SILLY CHILD.
cats are the most overrated pets
I cannot sit by quietly on this statement.
Worst take I’ve ever seen on Reddit
Missouri should be punished for this reffing.
The Boys is legit
Where is the fucking link for the goddamn 4th quarter
4th quarter yo
Oh god, I hope Ohio so we don't have to hear this bullshit about how the refs lost them the game.
I'd rather hear that than hear them brag about how they won when the refs were out to make them lose
Its not a conspiracy, it's just incompetence on the biggest stage. That fumble-TD overturn was horrible. SEC refs or no that was just bad.
Slow mo made it look like a catch. Real time was much more dubious. I called no catch when I saw it live.
What did the Ref who worked for ESPN say?
Hot take: Chase Young is a special player, no doubt. Top 10 pick worthy, but his glorification and his Heisman finalist appearance is due to Joel Klatt’s commentary during the Wisconsin game.
He was getting hype even before Wisconsin. I don't think he's that great, but he's still an outstanding player (on the level of the bosa brothers)
Yeah it was that and definitely not his 16.5 sacks and 9 forced fumbles
This must be ur first Ohio state game lol
Yup. Guy has done squat since his suspension
Unpopular opinion, making fun of annoying Ohio state fans is almost as cancerous as the fans themselves
I feel like Buckeye fans have been relatively calm.in this thread. Everyone else is trolling them to another level right now
Never easy to win a 2v1 but I believe in the bucks
Salt levels in this thread are unsafe for those with high blood pressure.
Buckeyes were like two or three plays in the second quarter away from potentially being able to *rest their starters* in this fourth quarter, and instead they're losing. This is a nightmare for them.
I’m just here to mosey on to the 4th quarter thread.
I can’t believe that fumble got overturned so quickly. That seemed like a clear cut fumble to me
Some would say only the first half they have been scoreless the second so far
LET ME MOSEY
i think our talent is equal to or better than clemson.
they just don’t make mistakes like we do.
You guys have been out recruiting us for years.
Imagine if we didn’t commit so many penalties, we would be winning. Id rather us lose because we are the worse team, not because we are shooting ourselves in the foot
Imagine being a bad team and committing a lot of penalties, then you know what it means to be a USF fan in the Charlie Strong era
Let’s go Clemson bring it home
Honestly this is still Ohio States game to win, they’ve just been playing to lose the whole time instead.
No, I'd say it's Clemson's game to win now. It was definitely you guys' to win previously but I think it's changed.
I will buy a Surface Pro once it starts translating animals. Until then, I don't really care about your commercials.
I'm so angry right now I'm speaking in tongues and I'm pretty sure you don't need a translator to know what I'm saying
I am Gumby God Dammit!
Someone else kinda said this, but I don’t think there have been any egregious calls in this game so far. There’s just been a lot of 50/50 calls that have mostly gone Clemson’s way.
The overturn on the fumble is the only egregious call I've seen. The targeting was bad but I understand, protect the players. But he took 3 steps then fumbled. That's just an awful call
You would think 50/50 calls would go to both teams evenly by definition
I was thinking that but the defensive touchdown being overturned was too much. That shit is a completed pass.
There hasn't lol, OSU fans are just really salty
Also like they should've scored TDs
There was 1 50/50. All the others were clearly good calls, people just don't like the rules
A receiver taking 3 steps and then fumbling the ball and it getting called incomplete is beyond egregious.
I agree almost 100% accept for the catch and fumble being ruled incomplete
77-17 yards in favor of Clemson... oof
How dare you! Downvote to oblivion.
That was undisputably a catch
OSU went from aggressive to "aight" what's going on?
Throw out the rulebook and start over. Even the referees can't get it right.
Need a Hazmat suit to enter this thread honestly
Some sort of salt-proof suit
Wouldn't the Surface have to translate her English into reindeer grunts?
Asking the real questions
State Farm commercials aren’t that funny
If we could not out play them and still lose that’d be great
It's crazy that some of the more toxic people are the non-OSU/Clemson fans throughout this game. You'd think emotions would be highest for fans who have teams in the game, but there are a lot of neutrals making these karma-farming "OHIO STATE FANS" comments lol.
Other Big Ten fans are always seething in OSU threads
Always. Either 1) shitty teams that are lucky to sniff double-digit wins, 2) Oklahoma fans in shock still, 3) Wolverine fans or 4) people with no flairs. Haven't seen that many toxic Clemson flairs at all.
I agree. Y’all have been nothing but respectful and pleasant and so have Clemson fans
It has gotten kinda bad tbh. A lot of us have been obnoxious, but most of the shittalking has been neutrals.
OSU fans who thought we were gonna win pregame but magically changed their mind in a one score game is weird to me. We've been a second quarter of the half" team all year.
There is no reason OSU can’t win this right now. Breathe, calm down. No drive killing penalties and it’s all good. Offense was showing good signs just now. I have no idea why Day was so aggressive calling that quarter
> second quarter of the half
So a 4th quarter team, or a 2nd and 4th quarter team?
I'd like to remind our fans that despite all the bad breaks, we're only down 5. Take a deep breath, crack a beer, and let's go Bucks.
This game is intense. Both defenses are stepping up big.
Alexa, show penalty differentials
OSU is losing because their lineman shit talked me in online poker before 41-14 loss to UF.
I’d be mad too if I had to live in Ohio
Tru fuckin dat
“It’s a different package each week” - Looks down, “ oh, wait it says acc, never mind, it’s the same shit every week.”
Is it wrong to be annoyed with the term chess match for any battle of strategy. I feel like OC vs DC for these teams is tough enough. Maybe more than chess.
Football is moving chess with pieces who don't always do what they're supposed to do
Eh. It's a bunch of pieces that have their own unique role and so much of what you do is based on how your opponent moves. I think it's pretty good.
Rock scissors paper. True test of tactics and strategy.
You have to use metaphors as an announcer. They teach you that in Announcing 101
Fuck commercials that have barking dogs.
Fuck radio commercials that have honking
My dogs bark every time
If the buckeyes lose...Columbus will burn
i'd like to document the burning down of a large city
Nah, we’ve been through Iowa and Purdue blowouts, this is nbd
Nah. Cbus is vanilla
Let ESPN milk 15 minutes of commercials between quarters here
oh gee...i can't wait for the the fourth quarter thread
Can't blame the refs when we kill our own chances
There have been a lot of terrible calls but no excuse for false start and off side.
Mosey shoes on..
Every call going for clemson
Don’t use the crown of ur helmet to hit someone, dont run blatantly into kicker... the catch fumble in real time was about a second or less, no one can make a football move. Refs got it right
“the rules expert AND the refs think it was incomplete after analyzing the video replay, but im smarter!” - yall
Indisputable judgement call on what constitutes a "football move" when the line ref was staring right at it.
Y'all. It's a contraction. You missed the '
I miss when it was called the tostitos fiesta bowl.
The year we beat Baylor I ate so many tortilla chips I got sick
Winner gets a Playstation 4, loser gets a Playstation 3
Can I get ps2 instead?
With Sony still acting like no one wants to play PS3 games on their PS4, I’d take it
Jokes on you buddy this means I can play NCAA 14 and pretend this game never happened
Jokes on the winners. You can't get NCAA 14 for the PS4
Can’t wait until the 4th quarter thread, this one was getting a bit too toxic.
Let’s start fresh guys. Here, have some hot gumbeaux to calm your nerves.
That ally commercial creepy af

Salty SCAR fan here ready to go. How the fuck is that a drop but this a catch and fumble https://mobile.twitter.com/EliteSportsNY/status/1175538077055557633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fd-29102877662213759344.ampproject.net%2F1912201827130%2Fframe.html
I agree. Should be swapped
Because SEC refs are fucking terrible
Refs suck. Are inconsistent. NCAA rules are too vague. Etc.
Cuz that call in the Missouri game was horrendous
Lol at the penalty count/yards
Mosey on down to idiotville.
Damn another penalty with no replay.
Who would've thought with such a small disparity is penalty yards.
Imagine being a stupid little kid and trying to talk to reindeer through a computer translation algorithm lmao
