When I first heard speculation a couple of weeks ago that the University Of Michigan might cancel out on it’s annual football game with the Ohio State Buckeyes it in a move that would knock the Buckeyes out of contention for a conference title it sounded like the kind of stuff you hear from conspiracy theorists who claim the moon landing was a fake. But proving once again what a crazy world this has become because of the Coronavirus pandemic the almost unthinkable happened yesterday when the Wolverines opted out of this Saturday’s game because of a reported virus outbreak. In doing so the Wolverines have avoided the prospect of what could have been an embarrassing blood bath on national television in Columbus. It is not surprising that Athletic directors from the Big Ten Conference will be meeting later today to discuss what might be done about a rule they imposed at the start of the season that a conference team would have to play at least 6 games in order to quality for a spot in the Big Ten Conference championship game. They could choose to waive the rule or provide the Buckeyes with another opponent this Saturday. The buckeyes have won all five games they’ve played and they appear to give the conference it’s best hope for a spot in the national college football championship games, currently rated number 4 in the country. You can bet that’s something that will be taken in to consideration. That’s the way I see it.
