Due to the COVID-1
One major difference that may occur this year is the rescheduling of the schedule. Some people in the media suggested that the “Top Ten” can be played against each other first to ensure that the game can proceed. In this way, there will be at least one division champion and potential top ten championship representatives.
This may lead to a game between Ohio State University and Michigan State, which has been played on the last Saturday of the regular season since 1942, at the beginning of the season, and possibly even on the first weekend of the season.
Many people around the Buckeye Country expressed dissatisfaction with this idea, they prefer the tradition of the game. When asked about the possibility of the game being played on Tuesday, Ohio State University players reacted mixedly.
“This is a tricky question,” Red Shirt Junior High Josh Myers Said on the conference call. “Due to the uncertainty of the season, now I am more worried about playing games in general. I don’t know if that must be correct, because I think we will play them no matter where the schedule is. But considering the current situation, I now Don’t worry about it anymore. Of course, in accordance with the tradition of the game, I hope it will be the last game of the season.”
Myers comes from Miamisburg, Ohio, and grew up while watching a game in Michigan, Ohio. He understands the tradition of competition, but he also knows that this is a strange year. In order to make a season come true, he may have to sacrifice tradition.
Fifth grade senior Jonathan Cooper He also grew up in the shadow of Gahanna, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. Cooper made sure that he was vacant in the last game of the injury-ridden season last year. This was the last time he faced the Wolverines before changing into the red shirt. It was clear at the time how important this kind of competition was to him.
However, Cooper came up with a clear answer to the idea of ”gaming” faster than Myers.
“No, no, no. Not at all,” Cooper said when asked if he was concerned about the schedule change. “That date doesn’t matter. As long as we can participate, it is only the northern team. “
Not all Buckeyes players are from Ohio and grew up watching Ohio State University vs. Michigan. Since joining Scarlet and Gray, these out-of-state players have understood the importance of the game and its history, but they still have different opinions.
Quarterback Justin FieldThe man from Georgia, injured by a knee injury, defeated Ohio State University by a 56-27 advantage. He just wants to lead his team to a ninth victory over Wolverine.
Fields said: “To be honest, I don’t care when we play in the North team.” “I just want to play them. My answer is simple. In fact, I just beat them.”
Added California native Wyatt Davis, He had his first actual battle against Michigan in 2018 Dmitry Knox Injured: “Justin and I were there. When we played them, it really didn’t matter to me. Obviously, as Josh said, the tradition of the game is very important to us, but It’s not important. If this is the first game in the schedule, then go. We will beat them.”

If Ohio State University and Michigan State moved here earlier this season, it would not be the only traditional competition. USC-UCLA usually also plays at the end of the season, and will now play for two teams in the first week on September 26. Other teams can do the same.
No matter what happens in Ohio, Michigan, the Big Ten plan can already reflect this unique year. However, if a college football season occurs during the COVID-19 pandemic and games can be played, players will be happy.
“I also hope to have a normal college football schedule; I would love to play in Oregon,” Miles said. “Therefore, there are a lot of differences this year. I think I will let it go now, accept the current situation, and be ready to play at any time.”
