When college football series are announced in advance like they generally are, people that know better realize not to get too excited, because there’s a good chance that things can change from the date of the announcement to the time the actual games will be played.
Well that’s what happened with the series the Ohio State Buckeyes were supposed to play with the North Carolina Tar Heels in 2017-18, as that will no longer be happening.
According to a report from Cleveland.com, the series has indeed been dropped, and the search for a replacement should be named soon.
Ohio State football will no longer play a scheduled home-and-home series against North Carolina in 2017 and 2018, and a replacement should be named soon.
Ohio State executive associate athletic director Martin Jarmond explained that, while they wanted to play the series with the ACC school, they just couldn’t get everything worked out in the end.
“We worked really well with them on this and we tried to figure some things out, but we weren’t able to do it and give us the flexibility we want and them the flexibility they want,” Jarmond said.
So now, you have to wonder whether or not these gaps create the opportunity for a high-profile neutral site game down the road.
