Ah, so it’s Natty Championship Day! Some thoughts from B1G world

I found myself strangely melancholy about the Title Game this year. I am sure that the REMATCH quality and the mind-numbing ‘Bama dominance has something to do with this. And I’m sure 15 minutes from kickoff I will be hyped to see the final game of this CFB season.
