They better not be going into this alone! 2hf5forneyb • No surprise, the liability is obvious for the universities. IndyWolverine23 • Well I hope the teams saying they'll look to play elsewhere, like Nebraska, are successful. Wolverine 4 life • If the [Big Ten] presidents truly felt like this was in the best interest of the student body in general and athletes specifically they should be congratu- lated for not capitulating. We can agree or disagree, but at least they stuck by their guns. However, if they let stu- dents on campus in any capacity then it's clear this wasn't about safety but li- ability, and in that instance they should be ashamed of themselves. lcb1982 • Full-contact football and going to class are two different things. If you talk to anybody that has played foot- ball in college — you are in a dogfight on the line of scrimmage and on the field. The probability of transfer of body fluids is quite high. This is not the case simply going to class. TIREDOLEWOLVERINE • They better hope the SEC, ACC and Big 12 do the same. Otherwise, this is a huge competitive hit to the league. rich_w • Once it came out that several Big Ten players have heart inflammation due to COVID, what did you think would happen? Diehard566 • What a joke. Students are allowed on campus, but players can't play sports? Situation won't change in the spring except 20 players will be off this roster due to NFL and transfers. Say goodbye to Aidan Hutchinson, Kwity Paye, Jalen Mayfield, Ambry Thomas, Nico Collins and more. SaBills 60 Day Free Trial, Use Code BLUE60 U-M head coach Jim Harbaugh made a statement in support of playing football this fall, but the next day the Big Ten decided to postpone all fall sports to the spring.
