  1. So dissapointed in the Big Ten, they gave into the the 3 narrative techniques of fear mongering. 1) Repetition, 2) The depictoin of isolated incidents as trends, and 3) misdirection. This wasnt about deaths and real risks to college atheletes, it was about scaring the commisioner and coaches that if anything bad happened blood would be on their hands.

  2. Colleges are a disaster. They should terminate all football and let the NFL privatize the college athletes as a minor league of sorts. Lease the facilities back from the schools, hire the players and play a season of minor league football. The WOKE schools could wash their hands of the liability and perhaps still make some money on their infrastructure. Do same for basketball and just kill all other sports that cannot be run profitable.

  3. Just imagine if the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 end up playing and having fantastic seasons with record breaking ratings, it will be a lot of fun to watch the arrogant Big 10 squirm as their decision looks more preposterous by the week.

    If they can pull off playing this year, there’s a lot going in their favor.

    – 10 Conference games instead of the usual fluff games that no one wants to watch

    – A lot of people pissed at the NFL who want to watch politics free sports like the PGA has been and college football has a great chance to be.

  4. Man where are the real leaders when you need them let’s just shut everything down amazing how America has changed in just a few months. I’m not sure if there will be any football college or pro if these pathetic snowflakes keep getting their way very sad to say hope i’m wrong.

  5. “Potential medical risks” you mean like concussions, permanent brain injury, paralysis (very rare), torn up knees? Hypocrites. This is a joke. I think some of the BigTen brass would like to see sports de-emphasized, but that is just speculation. If the conference dies it deserves it, and I say that as a BigTen guy. Many of the Presidents and conference administrators are weak, feckless phonies.

    Looks like the Coronabros won this battle.

  6. It is a sad reality when they mention the health and well being of the “student-athlete” (when we all know, especially football, the true inherent risk is one play literally away) and yet the campuses are fine letting students on there and collecting student tuition. Where are their safety protocols? Is drama still on? Can we protest on campus? Of course we can cause because the Coronabro “Media” Boss says it is okay..What the hell has the country become?? Just sad..
