Scott Van Pelt goes on epic rant about B1G's Thanksgiving idea: 'This is nonsense'
Add Scott Van Pelt to the growing list of individuals mocking the B1G for its disastrous offseason look. He’s just the latest major sports personality to slam the conference for how it’s mishandled the decision to cancel football this fall.
Friday night, Van Pelt talked about the B1G’s possible attempt to start the college football season around Thanksgiving, an idea that was reported on by Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. It’s not being received well.
SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum was the first to blast the conference, and SVP joined in.
Commissioner Kevin Warren said on Aug. 11 that player safety was a top priority and that advice from medical staff indicate that a fall schedule wasn’t feasible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, how does starting the season in Thanksgiving really change anything from a health and safety standpoint?
That’s what Van Pelt ripped the B1G for in his epic tirade on SportsCenter. Below is the clip of SVP hammering the conference:
