Ohio State football coach Ryan Day wants the Big 10 to start spring football as fast as the league can.

The Big 10 has canceled the fall 2020 football season in an all-time stupid decision, and now the conference will try to play in early 2021. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Ryan Thamel, Day told the media Wednesday that he wants an eight-week season starting in January and that it needs to begin “as soon as we can.”

I can’t believe this is actually happening. I seriously can’t believe we’re wasting time debating playing football in early 2021.

Has the whole world gone insane? Look, I like Ryan Day. He’s a hell of a coach and a good guy. I still don’t see how this could work at all.

Even if we play in January and end in March with some kind of title game, that’s still not enough time for some players to recover.

It’s this simple. The moment the Big 10 canceled the 2020 season, they screwed any chance of playing football until fall 2021.

We can sit here and pretend differently, but that’s the truth. If we could start in October or November, that’d be one thing.

Starting at any point in early 2021 is foolish, and we shouldn’t even consider it.
