Good luck staying COVID19 free bigtenfootball. Way to put all your players and their lives at risk for your entertainment. No worries. I like it, I like it 😅 While I love college football, I care more for the young men who may experience contacting COVID and, though, feel better to play again in 21 days, don’t know the long term effect on their hearts and other medical problems. Thanks again Mr. President for not caring.
Disgusting how these athletes can get tested every day when average citizens can't! The greed is real.. I like the decision; but you would think the Big Ten would have been able to lead the way a little more than following what others are doing. Just a thought. Go Ohio State!

They bowed to parents and boosters. Bowing to greed. College football is BIG money for the BIG Ten. More people will die Worldwide from TB this year. The basic fact is that this Virus was never the threat to healthy people under 75, especially children and youth that we were told.
Big Ten changes course, aims for October start to footballLess than five weeks after pushing football and other fall sports to spring in the name of player safety during the pandemic, the conference changes course and says it plans to begin its season the weekend of Oct. 24. Sits back and watches as every player gets Covid and then they panic and start cancelling things. Because the leadership is a bunch of idiots. Who rushed to a decision when there was plenty of time to wait and evaluate. Absolutely not acceptable reason for the bigten to not fire KevinFWarren. Who do the parents/players sue if there is death or permanent injury from getting Covid?
President Trump takes credit for influencing Big Ten's decision to bring fall football backTrump has pushed for the Big Ten to play football for weeks as the conference's footprint contains many pivotal Electoral College states. Great, Trump can take credit when they have to stop due to Covid too. Of course he did. Trump often interferes with or promotes private business. (unlawfully against the Hatch Act).
