Moments after the conclusion of College Football Playoff championship game — a 26-23 overtime victory for Alabama — on Monday night, a couple of Ohio State quarterbacks were looking ahead to next season.
In their minds, the Buckeyes are shoo-ins to play for the national title.
Great game, see you next year .. 😉

On paper, Ohio State has a solid shot to make good on its quarterbacks’ claims. The Buckeyes top the Land of 10 power rankings and are No. 3 in ESPN’s Way-Too-Early Top 25 for next season. They’re among the favorites to win the 2019 national title along with Alabama, Georgia and Clemson, according to Bovada.
The bigger question may be if Ohio State does make the championship game, will it be Haskins or Martell who leads them there?
