The Dumbass Lounge>B1G Could be playing football starting in October
Titty Meat 09:50 PM 09-01-2020
Dan Patrick Show
@dpshow
“From source: If conference can pass updated safety measures and procedures, Big Ten targeting Oct. 10 to start football season.” - Dan Patrick

This came after the president met with B1G commish Kevin Warren. Warren's son plays for Mississippi St and they will be playing in September.

Also:

TV partners have already green-lighted any decision that B1G presidents and Kevin Warren decide on, but bigger networks Fox Sports and ESPN/ABC are also pushing for October start, per source.

Big Ten will only get partial TV revenue if they delay until Thanksgiving or later.

Yeah, but its his job to know they are a bunch of pussies that can be swayed by the media. You have to work the ADs and the coaches to work their presidents.

The way I understood it, they were supportive but the individual AD's were never consulted. He should have involved actual sports people before he decided to just call the whole thing off.

Kudos to the Huskers for spearheading this thing.

Ball is in the University Presidents court... they have access to the Abbott instant testing.

It's the final hurdle for player safety and initially they will the only conference that has it.

Kevin Warren is working to pull it together... this can happen and he can be the hero

The timing of this is interesting not just the meeting with President Trump, but the court in Lancaster saying hey we want to see the information. I'm not a lawyer I guess them asking for that information would he standard but what happens if they were to rule against the B1G? Hopefully someone like DJ could chime in on this.

Looks like 30-35% of Big 10 athletes that tested positive for COVID 19 also had myocarditis. Yikes.

Multiple sources: No immediate plan for @bigten presidents to meet to consider fall start to season. One source, "Oct 10 ain't happening."

Not sure how to embed tweets on mobile but that report appears to be fake news.

Regarding the claim that 30-35% of Big Ten athletes have been discovered to have heart conditions linked to Covid-19: It was incorrect.

Here is some clarification from Penn State.

Looks like the B1G doesnt have enough votes to start Oct 10th. Most likely will be the end of November.

The reasoning? I dont know.

Playing outside in Dec-Jan? This from a league that never even played night games in Nov due to weather concerns....
