Ryan Day blasts B1G, says it's possible for football to start by mid-October
Ryan Day is making another pitch to the B1G to bring the football season back this fall.
Thursday, Day put out a statement bashing the B1G for its lack of communication and transparency during the decision-making process to postpone the 2020 football season. Though the conference made the announcement on Aug. 11, there has been little information provided as to why or how the league came to the conclusion.
In the letter, Day says that there’s a “pathway” for the B1G to return to competition by mid-October. Below is the full statement Day put on Twitter:
Day — along with Penn State’s James Franklin, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and Nebraska’s Scott Frost — has been one of the most vocal coaches about wanting to play football this fall. Several Ohio State players have also come out in support of playing this fall.
Quarterback Just Fields launched a petition urging the B1G to reverse course last month, an effort that received over 300,000 signatures in only a few days.
With the B1G taking its sweet time to make a decision, Day is making one last push. Will it pay off? We’ll find out soon enough.
