Another day’s gone by, which means that more people are calling on the Big Ten and their commissioner Kevin Warren to un-cancel the football season. The latest voices include Ohio State quarterback and Heisman Trophy finalist Justin Fields, and 81 parents of Nebraska football players.
Justin Fields penned a petition on moveon.org on Sunday, and it has already garnered over 225,000 signatures.
“We, the football players of the Big Ten, together with the fans and supporters of college football, request that the Big Ten Conference immediately reinstate the 2020 football season,” Fields wrote. “Allow Big Ten players/teams to make their own choice as to whether they wish to play or opt out this fall season. Allow Big Ten players/teams who choose to opt out of playing a fall season to do so without penalty or repercussion.”
