Countdown to Kickoff: 37 Days

37.  Ohio State has finished a season with 1 or fewer losses 37 times during their history.  Nowadays, if you want to have any hope at all of making the College Football Playoff, you have to be near perfect during the regular season.  Of the 12 teams that have made the College Football Playoff, none of them had more than 1 loss during the regular season.  The margin for error has gotten slightly larger now that 4 teams have a chance at the title (as opposed to 2 back in the BCS days), but you still really can’t afford to have more than one slip up.  That’s part of why I love College Football.  Every game means so much, which, as a fan, is a blessing and a curse.  Some of those close games have taken years off of my life, and if your team loses it can ruin your week/month/year (or maybe I just take it way too seriously).  Luckily for me, the Buckeyes are running the table this year, so I won’t have to worry about it, and I get to use this as number 38 on next year’s  Countdown to Kickoff.
