Facing backlash from fans, players’ parents and others, Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren is seeking to elaborate on last week’s decision to postpone football season until spring.
The first-year commissioner has been criticized for a lack of transparency in how the decision to call off football this fall was made.
He said the vote by the Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors was overwhelmingly in support of postponing fall sports and will not be revisited.
Warren wrote that transmission rates continue to rise at an alarming rate, there is too much unknown about the virus, recovery from infection and long-term effects and that there are concerns about contact tracing.
