Yes, this has been said a few times before but here we are again.

The Big Ten's council of presidents and chancellors will meet Sunday to review the latest medical information and possibly vote again on when the fall football season can begin, sources told ESPN.

The medical subcommittee of the Big Ten's return to competition task force met Saturday with a smaller group of eight presidents and chancellors, who pushed the process forward for a possible revote as early as Sunday.

Saturday's presentation focused on the medical information, but Sunday's meeting will broaden the focus to include how to start, when to start, and the medical thresholds that must be met in order to return. Specific return dates are expected to be discussed, according to a source...

Barreiro sounded pretty confident this morning that the big ten was going reinstate the season. No idea how credible that is.

Hope they try to play in a couple of the domed stadiums but the Sconnies seem to think it's almost a down deal.

MADISON – For the first time since the Big Ten shut down all fall sports on Aug. 11, sources familiar with the decision have transitioned from hopeful to confident the league’s football teams will play in 2020.

Those sources told the Journal Sentinel they expect the Big Ten’s Council of Presidents and Chancellors will vote to start the season, with the target date Oct. 17...

Nine votes will be needed to reverse the original decision, and Wisconsin is expected to vote yes this time.

Sources reiterated that reliable, rapid testing has played a critical role and helped turn the tide in the favor of trying to play this year. ..

Sir Yacht?
I actually saw a thread on Twitter where a writer from The Athletic was posting an update on the B1G meetings.

One person responded by stating that the reporter must be wrong, because Sir Yacht had posted something different.

Yes - there are people out there who apparently believe Sir Yacht is a more reliable source of information than a reporter who covers the B1G as part of their job.

I have a feeling people checking Twitter every hour today to find out about “the vote” are going to be very disappointed when the news never comes.

I only use Twitter for medical advice.

Hang in there. There is a chance they wont play. Might still be ok for you.
I want football as bad as anybody, pal. I just am not calling for peoples' heads because of the decision to delay. Maybe try again with someone else?

Righties have been cheering for big10 to start on time or early. Lefties for big10 to start late or not at all. If you are the exception to this then my bad.

One thing is for certain. If Biden is elected, we won’t be playing. According to his ads, he will be shutting the country down for 6 months.

Thats complete BS. Biden was asked if he would follow advice of his medical experts recommendation if they said it was only way necessary to stop virus out of concern of our citizens' safety. I guess you are a member of ' Cult 45'.
