Big 10 Cancels Football Season

Recommended Posts

All of this clearly means no basketball as well, right?

I think the way things are going, March Madness 2021 is squarely on Joe Lunardis bubble.

You would have to think so.  When does hoops practice start, October?  And if basketball can start then there isn't any reason football couldn't start a little late.

Allow me to introduce to you Big 10 Commissioner Kevin Warren. The super hypocrite above them all. His son is practicing football at Mississippi State today and has not opted out of playing football this fall. 

Adults playing football at another college are independent and free to make their own decision.  In other words, I don't see this as hypocrisy.

This could be awesome. Forget conferences. Let the big boys play and set up their own league and schedules. Run college like the NFL this year with the much wanted expanded playoffs.

He won’t let his conference play football because it’s not safe, but he’ll let his son? You don’t see that hypocrisy?

Too easy. Fox, ABC, and NBC would all sue.

His son is an adult so no I don't see that hypocrisy.

So it’s not safe for his conference but is ok for his son. What part of that is not hypocritical? If he is allowing his son to play football this year it’s hypocritical. It’s the very definition of hypocritical.

If we do not do what other countries have done we can copy and paste this thread for next year.  
 

Denial is why we are where we are.

Who is to say he doesn't think it's ok for his son?  If his son is 18 years or older, then Dad can object if he wants, but son can play football b/c he's legally an adult and can make his own decisions.  I can be a vegetarian and speak of the health benefits, but if I had an adult son and he chooses to eat meat products, that doesn't make me a hypocrite.

True, I guess what Grant is trying to say is will he advise, his son, not to play considering the risk.

Absolutely.  You also have to remember, he speaks for the Big Ten as a whole.  This a a conference decision, not something that is unilaterally made by just him.

That’s garbage and you know it. We all know college students aren’t independent of their families when they go off to college. If dad doesn’t want him to play, he wouldn’t be playing.
