Yep, that was the rationale for moving the game to fucking October, and it was pointed out then that this is likely to happen about every 30 fucking years or so.
On top of that, this is a very glass-half-empty view. The alternative would be to say that in a rematch of what would be excellent UM-OSU for the conference title, the team that lost The Game would have a chance at redemption - i.e. things would be nuts, because it would still be up in the air. And it would still be decided by UM-OSU on the field.
