The bad news seriously never ends when it comes to coronavirus. It never ends. Ohio State already had coronavirus issues, and the man now tasked with running the program has tested positive for COVID.
At some point, you just have to wonder when the chaos will finally end. It certainly doesn’t look like it’ll be over soon.
OhioState update: Ryan Day has tested positive. He is in isolation and will not travel to Illinois or coach the team this week. Assistant head coach/defensive line coach Larry Johnson will serve as interim head coach of the Buckeyes on Saturday.

The good news is that the game against Illinois looks like it will happen, despite all the issues OSU is dealing with.
At least that’s something to smile about. Given all the ongoing issues, I’ll take wins where I can find them!

Let’s hope nothing changes between now and Saturday at 12:00 EST when the teams take the field. The last thing we need is another postponed game.
