It’s been a wild day of pushback against an alleged plan by Big Ten presidents to imminently announce the cancellation of football season. The latest comes from Ohio State football coach Ryan Day, who went on ESPN and wouldn’t rule out the Buckeyes playing elsewhere if the Big Ten cancels football season:

Compound this with Nebraska coach Scott Frost threatening similarly for the Cornhuskers to play elsewhere, and new reports out of Ohio that Ohio State president Kristina Johnson isn’t ready to vote to cancel football season (despite reports earlier that she already had).
Jim Harbaugh and James Franklin have also come out against the cancellation of football season.
Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren is going to face A LOT of dissent if he follows through with the reported plan.
