Iowa parents planning to join Ohio State at B1G headquarters on Friday
The B1G headquarters in Chicago might see a little more traffic than usual on Friday.
This week, Randy Wade, the father of Ohio State cornerback Shaun Wade, announced via social media that he was heading to the B1G office in Chicago to get some answers out of commissioner Kevin Warren. He and other Ohio State parents are looking for some sort of explanation behind the league’s decision to cancel football this fall.
And Ohio State won’t be the only team being represented in Chicago. Parents of Iowa football players will also be making the trip in an attempt to get some answers.
Gary Koerner, father of Iowa defensive back Jack Koerner, chimed in on social media, saying that parents of Iowa players will also be in Chicago.
#Iowahawkeyes will be there too.

“It’s just a hard situation and then all of the misconceptions with the vote, [Kevin Warren] has got to come out and talk,” Wade told Tony Gerdeman of Buckeye Scoop. “You got to come out and talk. You’ve got to say something. It’s frustrating, but at the end of the day you can’t worry about the frustrations, you’ve got to worry about doing everything you can do with the time you have to do it because when you drop that hate and say ‘I have my all,’ that’s what I want to do for us, you just want to give it your all.”
Parents of Ohio State and Iowa football players have already written letters to the B1G office.
We’ll see if any answers are provided in the coming days.
