Parents of football players from 11 B1G programs align on message, pen open letter to B1G, Kevin Warren
The parents of several B1G football student-athletes have penned an open letter to the conference and commissioner Kevin Warren, demanding answers behind the decision to postpone the college football season. It is the latest in a wave of requests from parents across the league upset by the fact that the rug was pulled out from everyone regarding the upcoming season.
Wednesday morning, parents of Nebraska football parents posted an open letter to the B1G, the conference’s presidents and chancellors and the commissioner, requesting more open dialogue and transparency. They say that they have representation from 11 of the 14 B1G football programs at this time.
Parents have been demanding answers since the B1G made the decision more than two weeks ago. There has been little explanation provided behind the league’s decision.
In the open letter, parents are requesting three primary things:
- Transparency of Process
- Parent Organization Forum
- Return to Competition Task Force Plan of Action
Along with an explanation behind the decision, many parents want to know what the course of action will look like to ensure a spring season. Given how poorly the B1G handled the fall season, they want answers as to how a spring season can proceed in the safest way possible.
Below is the letter, shared on Twitter by the Nebraska football parents on Wednesday morning:
