Report: Power 5 AD rips B1G, Pac-12 commissioners for early decision on fall sports
An unnamed Power 5 athletic director has ripped B1G commissioner Kevin Warren and Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott for their respective decisions to cancel the 2020 college football season, as well as fall sports.
Per Jeff Goodman of Stadium, one Power 5 AD isn’t too impressed with the work that Warren and Scott have done for their respective leagues. On Tuesday, the B1G announced it would cancel fall sports, hoping to resume activities in the spring. It was the first Power 5 conference to do so.
The Pac-12 followed the B1G’s lead. Right now, the Big 12, ACC and SEC are preparing to move forward.
“You’ve got one pro guy with no background in the industry in Kevin Warren and a guy in Larry Scott who acts like he’s smarter than everyone else,” the Power 5 AD said. “We’re supposed to be about the players. This isn’t about the players.”

Clearly, there have been some struggles among the Power 5 conferences and its leaders in the offseason. And at least one Power 5 athletic director isn’t happy with the B1G and Pac-12 moving so early.
