Ohio State football is in its own bubble.  With the Big 10 contemplating the cancellation of college football in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Buckeyes could opt to go elsewhere, maybe even the SEC.

Report: Big 10 Cancels Fall Football - Sad news to share as the Big Ten has reportedly canceled its upcoming football season.

Now no one will be able to watch the premiere teams from that conference choke during bowl season and Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan program won’t have the opportunity to make excuses for losing to Ohio State once again.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Big Ten has cancelled its football season after speaking with several sources familiar with the situation. The formal announcement from the league is expected to come on Tuesday.

Player Asks if Buckeyes in the SEC is Possible - Following the reports that the Big Ten season is canceled, Ohio State linebacker Teradja Mitchell asked if the Buckeyes can go play in the SEC.

The Ohio State Buckeyes Are in Their Own Bubble, But That May Not Be Enough to Save Their College Football Season - Ohio State operates in the top tier of college football, competing for national titles in a way that no other school north of the Mason-Dixon line does consistently. When it comes to coronavirus protections, it’s easy to imagine Ohio State operating at a high level as well. Money makes it easier to be safe, and the Buckeyes have money. They also have motivation. Ohio State is chasing a national title. No other team in the Big Ten is thinking that way. If Big Ten university presidents are asking what they’re trying to save this fall, the OSU answer about what a football season means in Ohio is different than the answer that exists for any other school.

That motivation and money is why Ohio State’s captains could release a message Friday that read as a response to a previous message from a group of Big Ten players (it claimed more than 1,000 players backed it) that called on the conference to listen to players and to raise COVID-19 safety standards.

The Buckeyes’ response read, essentially, “We’re good.”

“We respect that these thoughts about safety and protocols may not be shared by all student-athletes across the country. But as Ohio State Buckeyes, we stand with the decisions of our athletic department and conference,” read the end of the statement.

That’s great for Ohio State. But it doesn’t get them closer to a football season.

Their bubble isn’t particularly useful, because a one-team bubble won’t save the Buckeyes. If college football vanishes this fall, their bubble might only serve to frustrate Ohio State.
