LeBron James, the prodigal son of Akron, Ohio, was on the Ohio State Buckeyes' sideline when they delivered a championship to Ohio in the inaugural College Football Playoff championship game. It didn't matter to LeBron that he was due to potentially return the next day for the Cavaliers after a knee injury. There was no way he was going to miss the Buckeyes' championship.
