Report: 'Real possibility' that B1G reverses course on fall football
There may still be some hope left in a B1G fall football season after all.
On Friday morning, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported that B1G coaches were meeting during a conference call, with “a real possibility” that the conference reverses course and plays football in the fall. Commissioner Kevin Warren said last week that the league would “not revisit” the decision on fall football.
Earlier this week, it was reported by Blue and White Illustrated that a spring football schedule was coming together. The B1G was looking at an eight-game conference schedule beginning in early January.

However, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported on Thursday that the B1G was also considering starting the season around Thanksgiving weekend. It was no clear how much momentum that idea had gained.
Now, Feldman is reporting that there could, in fact, be fall football in the B1G. No potential starting date has been provided regarding reinstating a fall season. No decisions have been made at this time.
Stay tuned, because the roller-coaster offseason the B1G has endured may see another twist.
