Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren has reflected on 2020 and looked ahead to 2021 in an interview with the Big Ten Network.

Warren is down in Miami for the National Championship Game as Ohio State will be taking on Alabama on Monday night.

He ended up sending a message to the fans of the conference in the interview. Here’s what he had to say when asked about the year by BTN’s Dave Revsine:

“I think we just need to remain grateful and have grace on each other because people have really had to work together,” said Warren. “And the thing that I’m most excited about: we have gone through some challenging moments, we have stayed together, we’re stronger as a conference. I think just showed the resolve and the grit of our student-athletes.

“I’m just humbled to be the Commissioner of the Big Ten Conference.”

Right now, the schedule looks back to normal for the 2021 season but we’ll have to see if it stays that way as 2021 rolls on.
