the Big Ten:

    All five Power 5 conferences plan to play college football this season.Now that all five Power 5 conferences will play, we’ll go back to our original rankings format. While it was fun to see what Group of 5 conferences like the ACC and the Sun Belt could do to get our attention, the ACC, the Big 12 and the SEC have already played conference games and the Big Ten and Pac-12 aren’t all that far behind from joining them. Though there will be times where we might think the ACC is better than the Pac-12, we’re really grasping at straws to prove a point. 1 Southeastern Conference Eight Ranked Teams Best Team: Alabama Crimson Tide (No. 2) As a shock...
    Momentous developments call for special editions. Instead of Saturday Night Five, welcome to Saturday Night One: Our account of the lost days that cost the Pac-12 an October start … If these past few weeks have felt like months for Pac-12 fans, well, just wait until Oct. 24. That’s when the Big Ten and the Mountain West are expected to start their seasons, bringing all the Power Five conferences and all the major college teams in the west back to competition. Except for you know who. At that point, it will be two weeks until the Pac-12 starts. Two weeks of the ACC, Big 12, SEC and Big Ten in action, and no Pac-12. Two weeks of Boise State and...
    Nebraska miffed with the Big Ten, Clemson cruises, Rex Culpepper gets the biggest win of the week, Pac-12 gets closer to a return, the end of Tate Martell and the start of the SEC season. The Big Ten didn’t do Nebraska any favors with their revised schedule and there are whispers that the league is sending a message to the program for being so vocal in their disdain for the conference, including threatening to leave the conference and threatening legal action. Martell first committed to Washington before de-committing and committing to Texas A&M. But then he de-committed from the Aggies and committed to Ohio State where he played in mop-up duty behind Dwayne Haskins. When Justin Fields was thinking of...

    The Big Ten on Saturday announced its Week 1 schedule for the 2020 college football season — an abbreviated campaign necessitated by its late start date amid the COVID-19 pandemic. But less football is better than no football at all, and the opening slate of games will give Big Ten fans the football they otherwise might not have seen until 2021. Should a team get through the Big Ten slate unscathed, they’ll have the opportunity for a nonconference game at the end of the season, anyway.

Trump told Clay Travis in an interview on “Outkick” that he offered Big Ten Conference Commissioner Kevin Warren help with testing and told him that he had to get football back for the states and the students because it could be their last chance to showcase their talent for the NFL.

    President Trump’s responsibility in bringing back Big Ten football amid the coronavirus pandemic was a representation of the players who didn’t have a say in the matter, former college football coach Lou Holtz explained to “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” “Why did President Trump get involved?

    There never has been much doubt a 2020-21 Division I college basketball season would occur in some form, with an NCAA Tournament and a majority of programs finding a way to participate. The NCAA’s announcement Wednesday of a Nov. 25 start date for men’s and women’s basketball — with guidelines and requirements for staging a season — made that official. The NCAA was not in position, however, to offer a substantial degree of clarity regarding many of the variables. Will there be bubbles? Will there be non-conference games and early season tournaments? What impact will the loss of non-conference revenue have on programs in less wealthy conferences? What will the NCAA Tournament look like? Will it expand or contract? Will any conferences choose...
    ANN ARBOR (AP) — The Big Ten conference, which reversed course and announced Wednesday it would have a fall football season, is setting up a cardiac registry to study the effects COVID-19 has on athletes’ hearts. “It will help all students, our surrounding communities, and really it can have an impact on the entire nation,” Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said. “When you’re able to have an opportunity in a global pandemic to be able to help solve some of these medical issues, especially from a cardiac-registry standpoint, and be leaders from a research standpoint, that was really important.” Myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, was among concerns cited by the Big Ten in August when it planned to postpone...
    When it came time to confront a global pandemic, we should’ve known college football would whiff on the tackle. This flimsy collection of largely autonomous fiefdoms, each concerned mainly with hoarding wealth and power, was never going to make the right call against a fearsome opponent like the coronavirus. Not this sport, which has always been perfectly content to rake in billions of dollars off the backs of unpaid laborers, poisoning our system of higher education by transforming campuses into no-wage professional franchises. Those in charge followed their usual game plan when faced with a potentially deadly game of roulette. They followed the money. “We’re kind of undergoing a natural experiment to see what happens” was the ominous assessment of...

    Sports fans had a reason to celebrate today, as Big Ten conference presidents and chancellors voted to start college football season on Oct. 24.

    As the United States continues to face the novel coronavirus pandemic with no significant guidance from the Trump administration, states and cities have operated with a number of different guidelines (or lack thereof) in order to contain the virus and keep people safe.

    It’s official: The Big Ten is back, as of Oct. 23. Your move, Pac-12. The next few weeks are critical — no, they’re beyond critical: they’re everything. The conference cannot force-feed the narrative that it cares less about football than its Power Five peers. It cannot let the jokes about there being a ‘Power Four’ become reality. It cannot get left behind. Pac-12 football must return this fall. There is no choice. Forget a winter season. Playing in January would be difficult to pull off with a partner. But all alone — with the other conferences having completed their seasons, with a national champion having been crowned — it makes zero sense. Actually, it would make bad sense. Imagine the...

The Big Ten voted to postpone its 2020 college football season back in early August due to the ongoing global pandemic.

If, of course, conditions on the front lines. By that, we mean the local restrictions — particularly for the four California and two Oregon teams.

    This is the story of the Big Ten football season that never was and what could have been, including Ohio State’s national title pursuit with Justin Fields. For the first time since the year 1918, the Big Ten won’t be playing a college football season, at least not in the fall, with the potential of a winter or spring season looming. With the league’s decision to postpone the fall season due to concerns about the coronavirus and the long-term effects of it, comes the cancellation of many of college football’s best storylines that had fans anticipating a great football season. From top dog to underdog, the Big Ten had it all coming into 2020. With a Heisman favorite and national...
    President Trump is urging the Big Ten to play the football season because he said these big, strong guys won’t be affected by the coronavirus. During a campaign speech in New Hampshire with Air Force One in the background, President Trump turned his sights to college football once again. Weeks ago, Trump made comments about how it would be a tragedy if the college football season was canceled. “Big Ten, get with it! Open up your season, Big Ten.” He says of players: “These are young strong guys–they’re not gonna be affected by the virus…These are big, strong guys. They will be just fine.” Statistically, college-aged athletes are not in a high-risk age group, according to WHO, as opposed to...

    The Big Ten has a plan for a winter football season and it should give fans reason to be optimistic the league can pull it off. The Big Ten decided to postpone the fall football season and several head coaches in the conference have continued to fight to play. There was seemingly a lack of communication that had teams and fans wondering if there was ever a proper plan in place. The ultimate plan appears to be to play a season in the winter. Ohio State head coach Ryan Day brought up this idea once the fall season was canceled and an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by Jeff Potrykus lays out the reported plan to begin play in January.Big...

    The 2020 college season remains uncertain because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.   COVID-19 concerns contributed to four of the 10 FBS conferences canceling their season in 2020.

    Nebraska thinks it has way more leverage than it actually does. Ever since the Big Ten officially announced its decision to postpone all fall athletics, including football, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have been ready to go rogue. The team originally said it would compete against any non-conference team that would play them, but Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren shut that down quickly, threatening to kick the Cornhuskers out of the conference if they played.

Nebraska football head coach Scott Frost said prior to the Big Ten’s announcement that the Huskers wanted to play football in 2020 even if the conference decided not to hold a season.

    There’s an old college football joke that the ‘N’ on Nebraska’s helmets stands for “knowledge.” Scott Frost has fit right in. His first two teams in Lincoln have been underwhelming, but his public criticism of the Big Ten’s decision to postpone football this fall was embarrassing. “Our university is committed to playing no matter what, no matter what that looks like and how that looks,” Frost said Tuesday during a news conference. “We want to play no matter who it is or where it is.” There’s a lot to unpack there, but let’s cut to the chase. Nebraska is not long for the Big Ten. You don’t say something like that unless you’ve been thinking about this for a while,...
