As an SEC fan, my respect for the BIG 10 isn’t very high. But I was still bothered by the ridiculous, politically charged decision to cancel their college football season in the face of no evidence that such should have been done. The players wanted to play, they were already on campus, and they were even being allowed to spend 20 hours a week practicing. So why cancel the few-hour a week game after allowing all that?
The answer is that there was no answer. None of it made sense. Now, that decision has been reversed and the BIG 10 will play football in October, just in time for them to be able to finish conference play before bowl season.
President Trump, who has been outspoken that the BIG 10 should play, also took a victory lap, as he should.
