Big Ten Parents Release Open Letter to the Big Ten Conference

Parents of Big Ten football players continue to push the Big Ten Conference for  a reversal of the decision to postpone fall sports and continue to ask for more transparency as to how it reached its decision.  Eleven of the fourteen conference schools are represented.  Schools that have not been part of parent zoom meetings during the week are Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Indiana.  Parents wrote they agreed that they have trust in the respective athletic programs but remain disappointed in the lack of communication and clarity from the Big Ten since the conference made its decision to postpone fall sports on August 11th.  Wednesday’s message made no mention of possible legal action.  Nebraska parents said in a letter they would file a lawsuit if the Big Ten did not provide records detailing how each school president and chancellor voted as the league shut down fall sports as well as medical data that led to the decision.  The deadline of Monday at noon passed without any communication from the conference.
