Ohio State fan LeBron James okay with CFP taking Alabama over Buckeyes

Though he never went to business school, as the great Michael Scott once said, LeBron James is now the unofficial spokesman of the Ohio State fan base.

The Akron native and Cleveland resident released his official statement on Ohio State’s College Football Playoff snub and it was.... reasoned? Measured? Level-headed?

“It is what it is,” James told WKYC. “I think the committee, I think they did a great job honestly. Obviously I’m a huge Buckeye fan and we would’ve loved to be in the final four, to be able to compete for a national championship, but there’s never been a two-loss team in the final four, and if you look at the top four teams that made the final four, can you really argue? So we look forward to playing in the Rose Bowl vs. USC.”

With a calm, rational statement like that, we have to question whether LeBron is really an Ohio State fan at all.
