In an open letter to the Big Ten fanbase, Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said they will not be revisiting the decision to postpone fall sports despite the push from student-athletes, parents, fans and even some university athletic department members to reverse that decision.

“We have tremendous appreciation and understanding regarding what participation in sports means to our student-athletes, their families, our campus communities and our fans,” said Commissioner Kevin Warren “We will continue to make the best decisions possible for the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes. We appreciate the passion of the Big Ten community and will harness that energy towards providing the best possible experience for all Big Ten student-athletes.”
