Big 10 commissioner Kevin Warren believes football will start on time.

According to Dan Hope, Warren said during an appearance on “Real Sports” that the conference is “planning” on starting football “on time” during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, Warren did hedge by adding that it’s a “fluid situation.”

Well, this is a nice little update. Given how much carnage and chaos has consumed college football in the past couple weeks, there have been serious reasons to doubt that the season would happen as planned.

Warren is arguably the most powerful AD in all of college sports given the fact that he runs the B1G, which is the most powerful conference.

If he says they’re “planning” for the season to start on schedule, then that’s good enough for me.

Having said all of that, I’ve been saying for months that it’s a “fluid situation” and things are open to change.

We are in the middle of a pandemic, folks. Nothing is set in stone. We have to be flexible.
