Multiple reports coming out of Ohio indicate that Ohio State president Kristina Johnson is not yet ready to vote to cancel Big Ten football season.
- Buckeye Extra, a division of the Columbus Dispatch, reports: “While the Big Ten Conference reportedly appears poised to cancel fall sports, including football, incoming Ohio State president Kristina Johnson is said to be favor delaying, but not yet canceling, the upcoming football season, a university source told The Dispatch on Monday.”
- Cleveland.com reports: “Ohio State does not expect a Big Ten vote tonight on canceling football for 2020, but if one happened, incoming President Kristina M. Johnson would vote against cancellation, a university source tells cleveland.com.”
This contradicts an earlier report from Dan Patrick, who said that Big Ten presidents voted 12-2 to cancel the football season, and that the lone holdouts were Iowa or Nebraska.
Ohio State is definitely the biggest domino in the Big Ten. It is impossible to imagine the conference canceling football season without them on board.
