Big Ten releases statement in response to political leaders’ request to play season

The Big Ten conference has released a statement.

There have been several notable critics of the Big Ten‘s decision to postpone their 2020 college football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh all the way up to President Donald Trump.

The Big Ten has officially responded to a letter from several Midwest political leaders, including Speaker of the Michigan House Lee Chatfield in which they urged the Conference to reverse their decision. The conference’s response included “we all want the same thing, which is for “sports to continue safely.’”

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN reported, “the tone here and in the response to the President’s tweet indicates the B1G’s timeline to return is moving up. Won’t be as quick as many want, but late October isn’t out of the question, from what I’m told.”

Do you think we’ll have Big Ten college football by October?

Let us know what you think!
