Commenting on the cancellation of Saturday’s rivalry game with Michigan, Ohio coach Ryan Day said Tuesday that the Big Ten need to reconsider their rule that teams must play at least six games this season to qualify for a conference championship game.
Since Ohio’s number 4 (5-0) cannot play in Michigan because of the outings of Wolverine Kowid 19, Bakkiz does not qualify under the current rule and Indiana will play from east to west against northwest at noon in the 19th century. December in ET.
Sources told ESPN that the Big Ten sports directors may consider changing this rule during their meeting on Wednesday.
I think that one of the things that was entered very early and decisions are made based on the information you have at that time and things change, as we know, Day said less than an hour before Michigan officially cancelled the game. … I think we need to look at all these things regularly, and this is one of those situations. If we don’t quite get the game we need in the championship, we have to look at it carefully, as everyone at the conference does.
At times like these, there are no easy solutions. I know they’re gonna sit back and watch to make sure it was the right decision.
The state of Ohio played its game in Maryland on the 14th. November because of Cowid-19 in the Terps program and also his match in Illinois on November 28 because of the coronavirus epidemic in his own program. Although the university football play-off programme does not specify the minimum number of matches needed for teams to qualify for the semi-finals, the name of the conferences is a unique indicator used by the selection committee to evaluate comparable teams.
In our opinion there are common opponents, there is a solid timeline, said Gary Bart, chairman of the selection committee of the CFP, last week. Whether or not a team participates in a conference championship is certainly one of the smallest criteria we can judge. He’s not the only one. He’s one less than us.
If the Big Ten don’t change their tolerances, Ohio may still end up with a 6-0 untitled score, as all congressional teams still have to play a game against each other during Champions Week (18-19 December) if they are healthy.
In November, the presidents and chancellors of the Big Ten also adopted a rule that allows two conference teams to play each other if two conference teams have opponents who cancel a game within a week because of a coronavirus.
If Purdue, who cancelled Tuesday’s practice to evaluate her last COVID-19 test, had to cancel the game against Indiana, the Big Ten could go through the games or force Indiana and Ohio to play again.
The patient, who tested positive for KOVID 19 on 11 November, returned to his office on Monday after spending 10 days in isolation, as ordered by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention. He should be on the team on Tuesday.
When the players and coaches met the media on Tuesday, they all said they were training and preparing for the wolverines.
Ohio’s defense coordinator, Kerry Coombs, who spoke to reporters before the game was canceled, said the idea of not playing Saturday hurt her stomach.
This game has been a part of my life since I was five years old, Combs said. This game means a lot. We want to play.
