Parents from 9 other B1G programs join fight, align with Nebraska football parents
Parents from nearly all 14 B1G schools have aligned in the two weeks since the conference pulled the plug on fall football.
Over the weekend, the Nebraska football parents began an initiative to start the conversation among parent groups from all B1G programs. It started out by receiving support from parents of Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State football parents. The goal was to have a conversation and align on a message to B1G commissioner Kevin Warren and the league’s 14 presidents.
Since Sunday, five other parent groups have had representation.
Monday, the Nebraska parent group announced that parents of Illinois, Rutgers, Penn State and Maryland football student-athletes had joined the conversation. On Tuesday, representatives from Northwestern tossed their support behind the movement.
That brings the total to 10 parent groups working together on this movement.
The goal is to receive answers from the commissioner and the conference’s presidents regarding the decision to cancel the college football season, as well as other fall sports. So far, there haven’t been many specifics provided.
We’ll see if the parents start getting some answers.
We are looking forward to meeting with PARENT GROUP representatives from @HawkeyeFootball @OhioStateFB @UMichFootball @MSU_Football tonight to align our message. We may cheer against each other on Saturdays but WE ARE UNITED ON THIS FRONT!! @bigten @KevinFWarren #BigTenParents pic.twitter.com/XapNf9YvJf
