The Big 10 football season might not end up getting canceled.

It was reported Monday that the conference had voted to cancel the 2020 football season during the coronavirus pandemic. However, there’s been no official announcement, and Pete Thamel reported that it wasn’t true. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to former Ohio State star and current ESPN pundit Kirk Herbstreit, the B1G is “looking TO DELAY the start of the season NOT TO CANCEL.”

I hope like hell Herbstreit’s tweet turns out to be correct. There are millions of fans around America hoping that’s correct.

It’s just absolutely crazy that from Sunday through Monday we heard plenty of chatter about the B1G packing up and going home, but there’s still been no official announcement.

It certainly does make you think that nothing is set in stone.

Now, Herbstreit is saying that the plan is to delay the season. Given his ties to Ohio State and the conference in general, I’m inclined to believe him.

Would fans be happy about a delay? No, but we’d certainly take it over the season getting canceled.
