Kirk Herbstreit 'devastated' by B1G's decision on college football season
Kirk Herbstreit is devastated just like B1G fans everywhere.
Shortly after the B1G made its decision to cancel fall sports for the 2020 season — hoping it can possibly resume in the spring — Herbstreit spoke on ESPN about the heartbreaking news for the conference. He had similar thoughts as the rest of us.
“I guess we’re not shocked, right? We’ve been hearing about it for the last couple days. Disappointed,” Herbstreit said. “You really feel bad for so many players, so many coaches. You know they’re heartbroken, they wanted an opportunity to go out there and play.”
The B1G became the first Power 5 conference to make the decision to postpone fall sports in 2020. It followed the lead of the MAC and the Mountain West, which also canceled fall sports for 2020.
“I think right now, like a lot of college football fans, just kinda devastated by the news that it’s a reality now there won’t be any college football as far as the B1G and it sounds like the Pac-12.”
Also on Tuesday, the Pac-12 announced it will no longer be playing fall sports, either.
The Big 12, ACC and SEC have not made a decision on the season at this time.
