Big 10

We know how significant the student-athlete experience can be in shaping the future of the talented young women and men who compete in the Big Ten Conference.  Although that knowledge made this a painstaking decision, it did not make it difficult.  While I know our decision today will be disappointing in many ways for our thousands of student-athletes and their families, I am heartened and inspired by their resilience, their insightful and discerning thoughts, and their participation through our conversations to this point.  Everyone associated with the Big Ten Conference and its member institutions is committed to getting everyone back to competition as soon as it is safe to do so.
