Very simple solution for the Big Ten re: Ohio State and the B1G championship.
Change the policy. The ACC just canceled two games and put ND in the ACC title game on a Tuesday.
Just say we realize this doesn't benefit our conference.
@ralphDrussoAP So basically change the rules because it impacted Ohio State and they can't handle not getting special treatment
Here is a counterpoint: Tough shit
@ralphDrussoAP If Ohio state is in the playoffs without a CCG (not a entirely given) does it actually benifit the conference to give a team that can’t make the playoffs a chance to knock Ohio state out? Weird year giving some weird incentive to not do the right thing
@ralphDrussoAP That was joint decision with ACC ADs recognizing there were 3 teams who could mathematically make the CG. You think the IN and NW ADs are gonna be on board with that?
@ralphDrussoAP But that would require the very ethical and upstanding B1G going back on a decision for no real reason at all other than realizing it didn't benefit them and oh wait I see exactly what you mean now
@ralphDrussoAP Just don’t play. That’s what they wanted to do anyways. Easy peazy
And here's the reason it's easy for the B1G: You're not screwing any deserving teams. Nwestern already beat Wisconsin. Ohio State already beat Indiana, which is likely to take another L this weekend.
There is no reason to reward Indiana for the good fortune of perfect attendance.
@ralphDrussoAP Invite BYU to fill in for Michigan State?

Disappointment is part of a writers life. Just recieved my stories back from @TheFriendMag. I balance it out with thinking of the good feedback I have from my self publishing for which I am thankful. #SaturdayMorning #SaturdayThoughts #writerslife #WritingCommunity
