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.”

“We know how critical the understudy competitor experience can be in forming the eventual fate of the skilled young ladies and men who contend in the Big Ten Conference. In spite of the fact that that information settled on this a careful choice, it didn’t make it troublesome. While I realize our choice today will be frustrating from various perspectives for our a great many understudy competitors and their families, I am gladdened and propelled by their versatility, their canny and recognizing contemplations, and their support through our discussions to this point. Everybody related with the Big Ten Conference and its part organizations is focused on getting everybody back to rivalry when it is sheltered to do as such.”
