The college football national title game between Ohio State and Alabama reportedly might be delayed.

According to AL.com, the matchup between the Buckeyes and Alabama might be pushed back because of coronavirus issues within OSU’s program. Ohio State might be missing an entire position group. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

As of this moment, the game is still proceeding as planned for Monday, but we all know things can change quickly during the age of coronavirus.

You know the internet is about to be full of conspiracy theories on this one. The entire SEC fanbase will say OSU will only try to delay in order to get Justin Fields fully healthy.

Know how I know that? I’ve already had multiple SEC fanboys message me saying this is a joke and a scam. I’m not buying it.

The tests are either positive or they’re not. The contact tracing is there or it’s not. The NCAA isn’t going to let the Buckeyes delay the game for unjustified reasons. It’s that simple.

So, let’s stop with the conspiracy theories, let’s keep our fingers crossed OSU gets this under control and let’s enjoy some college football this upcoming Monday!

P.S.: Nick Saban’s daughter seems to be handling the news well!
