Ohio State Coached by Urban Meyer Win College Football National ChampionshipOhio State began the first major college football playoff as the fourth and final seed.  They came into the game as a six-point underdogs. They were underdogs all year: first when starting quarterback Braxton Miller got hurt before the season, then after they got killed at home against Virginia Tech, again when second-string quarterback J.T. Barrett got hurt before the Big Ten Championship game, and especially against Alabama and Oregon with a third-string quarterback in the playoff.

Tim Tebow’s Back Is Fine

Tim Tebow lives under a microscope now, and everything he does, or doesn’t do.

Such was the case this past weekend.

When Urban Meyer announced Saturday that Tebow had been held out of a scrimmage to rest a sore lower back, it quickly became national news.

On Monday, after being full-go at practice, Tebow said he didn’t understand why his back became such a big deal.

“The first thing is mom and dad, ‘Is everything OK?’ ‘Mom, I’m fine,’ “ Tebow said. “Everything is good. I think it’s funny. I think more than anything it makes people worry, friends of the family say, ‘Is he OK?’ He’s OK.”
