Big 10 Has Made A Decision On 2020 Football Season

The BIG 10 has made a decision on their 2020 season...

If college football can be played this fall, Big Ten presidents and athletics directors prefer playing a conference-only schedule, which would eliminate some long-distance travel and help ensure that their teams are being tested for coronavirus universally, multiple sources inside the league and around college football told ESPN.

Some Big Ten schools preferred playing only conference foes with one additional non-league game, which would preserve some of its marquee non-Big Ten matchups, but there is overwhelming support for a 10-game conference-only schedule, the sources said.

Big Ten presidents and athletics directors discussed the issues during a conference call earlier this week, and the league's head coaches were given an opportunity to weigh in on Thursday morning.

Official statement from the BIG 10...
quote:

The Big Ten Conference announced today that if the Conference is able to participate in fall sports (men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball) based on medical advice, it will move to Conference-only schedules in those sports.

Look, he is the official shite. If you are going to play 10 then what difference is 12. Either play the whole season or just scrap it and give in the Marxist, don’t wanna work, I’m mad I spent $100,000 on a social work degree soy boys.

I'm sure they'll schedule an SEC opponent for their one OOC game.

That makes zero sense...ok you will fly 2.5 hours away to a conference opponent versus 6 hours to a nonconf where you will still sleep in a hotel, eat takeout and do everything else as the road team usually do regardless. How does playing a shorter distance opponent improve testing?

Was hoping to watch OSU at Oregon. May have been a good game. 2020 is such a pain in the arse.

Bama must be scrambling to line up Vanderbuilt, Ole Miss, Miss St, Arkansas, and South Carolina

Why would they scramble to line up three teams they are already scheduled to play?
