Big Ten Reveals 11-3 Vote in Nebraska Players Court Case

The Big Ten, in the court case brought by eight Nebraska players seeking to reverse the conference’s postponement of Fall football season, says that they did take a vote and that it was 11-3. Adam Rittenberg of ESPN details:

So, with Ohio State, Iowa, and Nebraska voting against postponement, this means that Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Purdue, Indiana, Rutgers, Maryland, Minnesota, and Penn State voted for the postponement. The only relative surprise in there is Penn State.

While this clears a couple things up — Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren said there was a vote, which contradicted Penn State’s athletics director and Minnesota’s president who had said there was not a formal one — the conference is still going to face considerable scrutiny if the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 are able to pull off their Fall seasons.

  1. Maryland’s Govenor is not a Republican and the U of MD has always been a liberal institution.

    Truth is that Warren is a corupt Obama guy along with the liberal Universities he represents. Liberals infiltrated the Ivy Leage decades ago and now that have the Big 10 and PAC 12.

    The lawsuit was purposely weak and lame. That’s not how you file a lawsuit, if you really want resolution. And it’s too late. Bet the attorney’s are liberals and/or attended a big 10 school.

    ESPN fills their broadcast team with Big 10 and PAC 12 liberals, which explains their behavior.

  2. Big 12’s payback to Nebraska.
    I will assume that Tom Osborne is excited due to the cancellation as he was the Nebraska AD when Nebraska applied for Big 10 membership in 2010.
    Big 12 rivals Texas and Oklahoma are probably laughing their ass off.
