Big Ten Football MIGHT Be Back This Year”

Long story short. the players claim there was no transparency about what happened behind the scenes leading up to the decision to postpone the season. and they're demanding answers.

The plaintiffs in the suit are Nebraska football players Garrett Snodgrass, Garrett Nelson, Ethan Piper, Noa Pola Gates, Alante Brown, Brant Banks, Brig Banks and Jackson Hannah.

The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the Big Ten was not making public its efforts to have a football season that starts in either late fall or winter.

While the Big Ten was the only conference Trump named specifically in his tweet, it's one of four conferences at the top level of college football with a postponed fall sports season because of the coronavirus pandemic. As the Big Ten, Pac-12 and others postponed their seasons, Trump and his campaign started using the #WeWantToPlay hashtag started by college players across the country.

It's important to note that university presidents made the decision to postpone the season along with Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren.

And now we have word that the conference might be leaning back into playing the season.

The lawsuit says this is "a case in which a powerful collegiate athletic conference contends that its student athletes have no rights". The Big Ten decision, the suit continues, will "have a significant, detrimental impact" on the university, its student-athletes and businesses in Lincoln and.

The Big Ten is now discussing a football season of at least eight games that would start the week of Thanksgiving, per a report by Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The lawsuit says the athletes "will be unable to participate in any games, showcase their talent to professional scouts, or effectively develop their brand to set them up to market their name/image/likeness under recent changes in Nebraska law".

"This lawsuit isn't about money or damages, it's about real-life relief", Mike Flood, the lead attorney representing the athletes, said in a statement.

The remaining Power Five conferences - the ACC, Big 12 and SEC - are moving forward with plans to play their college football seasons this fall as scheduled. "Our Clients want to know whether there was a vote and the details of any vote, and whether the Big Ten followed its own rules in reaching its decision".
