"Although I understand the Big Ten Conference's decision to postpone the football season for health and safety reasons, the communication of information from the Big Ten after the decision has been frustrating and often unclear," Dey said.  "However, we still have the opportunity to tell our youth how hard they have worked for it: the chance to compete safely for the national championship this fall."

"Duke is playing Notre Dame, and Clemson is playing Wake Forest this weekend. Our players want to know: Why can't they play?"
