The crisis in the Big 10 over the football season has taken another twist.
Clay Travis tweeted Thursday that there is “increasing optimism” in the idea that the Big 10 will play football in the fall. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Hearing increasing optimism about Big Ten fall football season. Still lots of moving parts, but health obstacles to playing are significantly declining. Presidents & chancellors could have new vote early next week.

As much as I’d like to believe in this optimism, I just don’t. The vote to play football has to be at 9-5 in order to reverse the horrific decision to cancel games during the coronavirus pandemic.
Right now, I’m not sure where people think we’re going to find nine votes. Best case scenario, we have eight, and that’s if you include a yes vote from Wisconsin after shutting things down because of coronavirus.
