Urban Meyer: “No Chance” of Spring Football

Videos by OutKick

The Big Ten announced on Tuesday that they are canceling fall sports — and thus football. While the conference has expressed hope that they can play in the Spring, former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer went on Big Ten Network’s airwaves and declared that idea an impossibility:

Compound having to play two seasons in one calendar year with the fact that it’s unlikely vaccines will be available for young, healthy athletes in just a few months plus the fact that it’s unlikely the virus will be in a better spot during colder months than it is now.

The real story here will be what happens if the SEC, ACC, and Big 12, who haven’t yet announced the cancellation of their seasons, pull this all off. Also, will they be going after Big Ten players and even potentially programs?

  1. Let me cut to the chase. We know what’s going on here. The willingness of these partisan institutions to put so many jobs, scholarships and futures in danger to prolong discontentment among the voting population is pathetic.
