It must be a big day in the Big Ten because we’re actually hearing from Kevin Warren.

The first-year conference commissioner has become a villain quickly in his role leading the conference. That mostly comes from his handling of the 2020 football season. Despite all of that, we somehow made it to the Big Ten championship game.

Warren apparently decided his best moment to speak would be on FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff as he spoke with FOX’s Jenny Taft.

Warren started by talking about how happy he was that we made it to this point. You know there are folks in Columbus and Lincoln saying, “Yes, that’s because of our work. Not yours.”

As for the specifics of Saturday’s game, Warren says he’s looking forward to a high-powered game. Both schools have shown flashes of greatness, more so Ohio State than Northwestern.

Warren took all of two questions from Taft. That seems to be on brand for this commissioner, who basically has hidden from the public throughout all of this.

If Ohio State does make the playoff and somehow ends up the national champion, no one in Columbus will be saying it’s because of Warren. In fact, some might say the Buckeyes won despite Warren’s attempts to stop the season.
