Buckeyes DL Jonathon Cooper says 'it sucked' to have Ohio State-Michigan game canceled
Every schedule has those “Circle Games” that everyone looks forward to.
For Ohio State, the game against Michigan is always one of those games, and this season due to COVID-19 cases within the Wolverines program, the date will remain blank for 2020.
For outgoing seniors, missing a rivalry game is particularly hard.
Ohio State’s Jonathon Cooper, a graduate defensive end for the Buckeyes didn’t mince words when expressing his feelings about the cancellation.
Jonathon Cooper on losing out on his final Michigan game and final game in the Shoe: “That sucked, and it hurt … but now we're playing for rings,” so he's had to put that disappointment behind him and focus on preparing for the postseason.

Cooper, who was relatively quiet during the Buckeyes 52-12 win over Michigan State, came off a standout showing against Indiana in the game prior. Cooper had a tackle, a sack, and a handful of hurries for the Buckeyes during a tight 42-35 victory over the Hoosiers.
Ohio State will take on Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 11:00AM.
