The Big 10 has canceled the 2020 football season.
The decision was made Tuesday after nearly two days of speculation and reports flying all over the place. After holding out hope for as long as possible, the B1G pulled the plug because of coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I’m absolutely sick to my stomach right now. It looked like we’d managed to beat back the tide of cancellation after word broke Monday that it was a done deal.
Players, coaches and fans all led a battle charge to save the season. It looked like we’d done enough to force the Big 10 to stop.

Apparently we didn’t, because now it’s over. Small college towns will lose money, dreams are forever changed and lives will be different because of this decision.
It’s shameful, sad and downright pathetic. Every Big 10 leader who allowed this to happen should be fired, and Kevin Warren should be fired.
“The college football season has been canceled.”

There’s no reason to not play football. There’s no reason at all. This is a cowardly move, and it’s that simple. Shame on everyone who let it happen.
The Big 10 has officially canceled the 2020 football season, according to multiple reports. Announcement coming at any moment.
Dreams crushed, local economies destroyed, lives forever changed because of decisions based on fear.
Shameful day for college football.
