Ohio State reportedly has some substantial coronavirus issues.

According to 247Sports, the Buckeyes might not play Illinois this Saturday “after some OSU players tested positive for COVID-19.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The Buckeyes already didn’t get to play Maryland, and won’t be eligible for the B1G title game if they play fewer than six regular season games.

It would appear like that’s now a very real possibility if the Saturday matchup against Illinois doesn’t happen.

You can prepare for absolute chaos if OSU doesn’t play this Saturday. Fans are going to lose their minds as OSU is pushed to the brink.

I hate the Buckeyes, but the B1G simply can’t allow them to miss the title game if they’re undefeated.

The six game minimum is so stupid, and I’m not just saying that because Wisconsin is already under the threshold.

Some arbitrary number keeping OSU out of the B1G title game is beyond stupid, and it’s also incredibly embarrassing for the conference.

Let’s hope OSU is able to play Saturday and this whole issue ends up not mattering. If things get worse, then you can prepare for anarchy among OSU fans, and I won’t blame them one bit.
