  1. So how is Warren the only one who knows that a vote took place?

  2. Speaking of something not being a good look...you should probably get off the "minority splash hire" thing that you have mentioned multiple times now. Him being a minority has nothing to do with his performance, and continually bringing it up is a bad look for you.

  7. A massive economic destruction across 11 states, 10s of millions of people because of a 'delayed' season during a massive economic shutdown. The economy has and always will be the deciding factor in every Presidential election. Just a massive coinkidink that the best economy this country has seen in 50 years was shut down months before the election. And another massive coinkidink that the Wuhan Lab of Virology that is the suspected source of this pandemic was funded and built by the obama admin. I am willing to bet my life's savings that Kevin Warren, Larry Scott, and all of the University

  8. Well he DID lie in his letter why would you think he would be truthful on anything else. 1)Transmission rates are currently falling, NOT rising. 2) They won’t know much more about LONG-TERM myocarditis effects on then COVID-19 patients in January that they don’t already know now. 5 more months doesn’t give any more safety data on long term effects since the current data says recovered patients are currently fine in terms of heart disease issues. 3). I have not heard of any university saying they don’t have access to tests, though I admittedly don’t closely follow all 14 progr

  9. When Ohio State rebels against the Big Ten I'll gladly eat crow. And Warren didn't take anything away from Ohio State because he didn't make the decision because that's not his decision to make.

  10. Kudos to you @Notre Dame Joe You are so good at the Republican strategy of whataboutism and distraction it is almost poetic to watch. We see this strategy be effective over and over again, and yet those of us willing to see Trump and his misdeeds for what they are keep falling into this trap over and over again. I was so incredibly frustrated when the Republicans used this strategy so successfully during the impeachment trial. It was so successful at one point I thought that Joe and Hunter Biden were the ones on trial and the Democrats were desperately trying to save his presidency.

  13. Sorry, that wasn’t my intention, I apologize if you were offended by that comment. Im guessing we grew up in different places and in different eras. I didn’t grow up in the micro aggression era, if we were trying to get after someone we were overt about it. Don’t get your panties in a bunch where I’m at just means don’t fret about it. where I’m from that wouldn’t be considered a personal attack, but you like all of us are entitled to how you feel. Won’t happen again, my apologies.

  14. Yes it’s my guess Warren wanted to be the out front leader hero on this covid cancellation thing to cement his spot as the next nfl commissioner. Why not wait until we get more data from what happens once schools open and full contact practices begin? Why not wait to see what other conferences are doing. Makes perfect sense now. According to several non league sources he had zero coordination and contact with the sec, big 12 and acc about what he was doing. They were caught off guard on both his rescheduling and the cancellation. All so he could be the first one to

  15. B1G logic: Starting football in September is unsafe due to medical risks for kids. Starting football in January with likely little change in the way of infections/treatments/vaccine and increased risk due to likely winter resurgence and flu season is safe. Got it.

  17. I'm not sure focusing on the vote really matters at this point. I think it is easy to assume some in the conference were likely against playing this season and would have "voted" against a fall season. Football just doesn't mean as much in places like Rutgers, Maryland, etc... I do think Warren deserves much criticism over how this process has been handled. The lack of planning, the weird chain of events, his lack of leadership, and especially his lack of communication all indicate he is in over his head. I also believe his commitment to Big 10 athletics should be questioned b

  25. Here's the video. Mr. Warren does not inspire the kind of confidence I would like to have in this conference. He needs to go into politics, not sports. He used a lot of words to say absolutely nothing.

  26. I said Russia gets Uranium which the NR link explains how they got it. You assumed I meant "USA Uranium was exported to Russia" Pretty much the usual political strawmanning. Kind of like how posters will ignore the difference between vote-by-mail and a requested absentee ballot because acknowledging the difference would wreck their case.

  28. Riley is obviously a great talent but if we nab Helms, Carnie, Rollins, & Fidone for TEs in the 21/22 class then I won’t feel that bad. Pretty similar to how I feel with Keegan. Hard to feel sad right now with Grimes, Hardy, & Neville for 2021 with Fleming, Manning, Betts, Brown, & Nixon on campus already.

That’s why they are doing their own conference calls without him and guys like Brohm are coming up with spring football plans read this- it tells it all in detail https://www.google.com/amp/s/saturdaytradition.com/big-ten-football/moving-forward-is-kevin-warren-the-right-person-to-lead-the-b1g/amp/

  31. I think we can put the "vote" thing to rest as it didn't happen. Minnesota and Penn State's presidents have said as much and that's a direct source. Now whether Warren pushed the decision or not and what sway he had is an open question, but there was definitely not a formal vote.

  34. Yes, it has been an evolving issue. That said, these guys had five months to plan for contingencies. As the saying goes, "that's why they're paid the big bucks." Unfortunately, they looked no more competent than the NCAA folks. Poor communication, bad PR and terrible execution. Per Bill Moos, the ADs were having daily calls, coaches were having calls together with all levels of the university and conference, medical plans were developed along with dozens of contingency plans regarding all sorts of factors. If the athletic departments were putting in that much work and detail, it would be

  35. With Warren silent for the last 8 days and new momentum for a new season being seen from multiple sources including a Milwaukee newspaper. Which teams are most likely to be in or out? Seems like playing still has some legs https://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/college/uw/2020/08/18/revised-big-ten-football-season-could-begin-january/5602516002/ In descending order : Ohio state- legit national title contenders- consistently said they want to play Nebraska- led the charge, unity of purpose. Bad taste in mouth from last 3 years- need positive traction

  38. So much speculation going on there. I think the conferences are kind of like the NCAA; they derive their power from their members. In that sense, I think both of these statements can be true at the same time: -Kevin Warren is being scapegoated to a certain degree here. -The B1G (as a collective unit, meaning including not only the central office but its member schools) had five months to craft a comprehensive plan but didn't do it. Different train of thought: I wonder if the BTN contract itself is part of the roadblock here? Let's say 6-8 schools do wan

  40. I wonder if he and the presidents felt like they would be the crusaders out front rather than the ones left on the island. It can still be corrected, but egos will make it tough. Fact remains, this guy should be working 20 hours a day trying to figure out how to make it work.

  41. Ok my bad on the Penn State then, but a "deliberative process" does not equal a vote. The loudest voice in the room wins in a deliberative process and it's likely that some schools just went along for the ride as they didn't know which way to go. This should have come down to each school saying yes or no and a formal vote count with each school making their opinion known. Also, the Minnesota president did say there wasn't a vote. Voting and arguing to a decision that others go along with is pretty different.

  43. So, I'm assuming these are the 6 schools that voted to play this fall? It is just amazing to me the various types of reactions from media and the conference through all this depending on what program is saying what. The ONLY way this could possibly be being put together is that it's coming from OSU.
