Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State football will have to wait at least one more night to find out if the Big Ten will reverse its earlier decision and schedule fall football.
Jeff Potricus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday approved a “proposal.” He and Brett McMurphy of the stadium reported on October 17 that the first weekend is the first option. Clevelex has not independently confirmed these news, and there has been no formal announcement from the league. .
Tuesday’s update included updates pointing to progress but falling short of a resolution.
• Nebraska President Ted Carter said on a hot mic ahead of an unrelated news conference that “we are ready to announce the Huskers and Big Ten football tonight.”
Asked later to clarify his comment, Carter said, “I think it was raised a bit out of context. I said everything is going on. I remain optimistic like everyone else That when it’s safe we’ll find it. To play. “
Nebraska was one of three schools that voted against the original cancellation decision on August 11. A group of Cornhusker players also filed a lawsuit against the Big Ten, asking them to reverse the verdict.
• Around the same time, Wisconsin Chancellor Rebecca Blanc was testifying at a US Senate hearing on the name, image and equality income for college athletes. Virginia Senator Tim Kaine asked Blanc if the Big Ten would announce a resolution this week.
Blanc said she could not say if the Big Ten decision would come on Tuesday, adding that the convention’s decisions usually come by consensus, if not necessarily by vote. She repeated the original Aug. 11 stems from concerns about contracting contingent and long-term heart issues for athletes contracting COVID-19.
“We will postpone our season until we have an answer,” Blanc said.
Michigan State President Samuel Stanley spoke to the Spartans football team, according to the Detroit Free-Press, and said he hoped to provide an update soon.
The same report stated that a high-ranking Big Ten source told the Free Press that it is unclear whether all 14 teams will participate in the fall season.
• Fans were not the only ones to express their disappointment at the tumult of rumors. Penn State Defensive and Shaka Tony took to Twitter to pinch.
“Everyone is only thinking about football,” Tony wrote. He said, “Rumors y’all are destroying our mental health.” Please allow them to announce it. If you care about the players in B10 then wait for the answer. “
• Pac-12 players, who were probably inspired by the evidence of traction in the Big Ten, began making their own push to start the 2020 season.
The biggest hurdles in restarting that league are the COVID-19 restrictions in California and Oregon. USC quarterback Kadon Slovis argued California Governor Gavin Newsome. He tweeted a letter signed on behalf of the entire Trojan team allowing him to play.
“We’ve been watching teams across the country for two weeks, playing the game we love safely,” Slovis tweeted. You are the one holding us back. Please #Vamos Jogar. “
On the Bakke Talk, we discussed Sean Wade’s father, Randy, in a new perspective, provided that OSU’s decision to exclude the Cornerbacks. Michigan President Mark Schlesel’s current ordinance tells us where football has fallen on the campus leaders’ list of priorities. It’s not that it’s not important, but we sometimes lose perspective of everything happening in the Big Ten.
