According to a report from ESPN, commissioners of the Power 5 conferences held an emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss the potential postponement of fall sports and several sources have indicated that Big Ten presidents are ready to ‘pull the plug’ on the fall sports season.
Several sources have indicated to ESPN that Big Ten presidents, following a meeting on Saturday, are ready to pull the plug on its fall sports season, and they wanted to gauge if commissioners and university presidents and chancellors from the other Power 5 conferences — the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC — will fall in line with them.
Sources told ESPN that a vast majority of Big Ten presidents have indicated that they would vote to postpone football season, hopefully to the spring. A Big Ten official confirmed to ESPN that no official vote took place during Saturday’s meeting.
“It doesn’t look good,” one Power 5 athletic director said.
Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic added that sources of hers have said Big Ten presidents and chancellors are meeting on Sunday night to discuss the fall sports season.
Folks, I have been saying it since April. Unless cases of COVID-19 are WAY down, there is no way a 2020 college football season will happen.
I am very afraid that I am going to be right about this one.
