Report: Husker parents join movement, preparing to send B1G commish letter
Nebraska’s parents are joining the movement and drafting a letter to send B1G commissioner Kevin Warren. The parents of Iowa and Ohio State players have made the same move.
Sean Callahan of Rivals.com reported on Saturday that the parents of Husker football players are currently drafting a letter to send to Warren in the days since he and B1G presidents voted to postpone the college football season. The decision was made on Tuesday, with little explanation provided.
That decision did not sit well with players, parents, coaches and fans across the B1G. While some might agree with the league’s decision, the lack of communication and leadership within the conference has been described as nonexistent.
On Friday, Iowa parents wrote a letter that was shared on Twitter, calling the league’s “lack of communication and leadership offensive.”
Ohio State parents reached out to ESPN’s Heather Dinich with similar sentiments. Parents of Buckeye players are also looking for answers, data and explanation behind the conference’s sudden decision to call it quits on a fall season.
Nebraska was one school that somewhat resisted the B1G’s ruling early. Scott Frost and other administration within the program said they would continue to look for options to play a fall season, though that idea was eventually squashed.
Clearly, there are a lot of unhappy parents in the B1G right now.
