(Indianapolis-cf)-- Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren won’t revisit the postponement of fall sports. The Big Ten has faced significant backlash from the August 11 announcement to postpone Big Ten football. “We understand the disappointment and the timing of the decision which came six days after the league announced it’s 10 game schedule” Warren said. The NCAA also made a statement on eligibility of fall athletes. The NCAA Council voted yesterday to recommend all athletes whose fall seasons are being altered by the pandemic to get another year of eligibility.
