Today has been a rough day, and it all got a shade worse when I stumbled across a terrible Wisconsin football photo.
NOTSportsCenter posted a photo of a Wisconsin couch with the word “clinched” plastered over it. They captioned the photo, “BREAKING: Wisconsin has clinched home couch advantage for the College Football Playoff.”
How could the internet do this to me? Besides, everybody knows that the Orange Bowl is where the real winners go. Every kid grows up dreaming about the opportunity to play in the Orange Bowl against Miami instead of the playoff. I remember all the times I played pickup football as a kid and dreamed about losing to Ohio State and blowing a perfect season.
Maybe this is something Wisconsin fans will struggle for years to get over, but having photos like this one floating around the internet certainly don’t help. Just taking a .50 rifle round to my heart. I’m not sure I’ll ever recover. I might be defending Ohio State with every last breath, but that doesn’t mean I’m not heartbroken from the weekend.
