wow just saw some of the press conference from Karen Warren to all the rest of the talking heads none of them seemed happy that the big10 was playing football
I guess instead of worrying how anybody else views there being some B1G football this calendar year, I'm just going to bask in the delight that it looks like it's going to happen.

GBR and all that.

King Kevin was adamant when he announced the season was canceled and the decision WOULD NOT BE REVISISTED.
That was however before his bosses told him they would revisit that decision. Obviously he's now butthurt because he's completely in charge except when the presidents/chancellors decide he's not. He was given some cover saying the new testing changed things but should have never said it would not be REVISITED. :Rolf:

That comment was stupid. he should have never drawn that line knowing it could of course be reversed. It makes him look like a very weak leader.

Warren did not make the initial decision to suspend football unilaterally, by himself. He simply announced the decision by a 11-3 vote. Beating him to death with fan anger, at this point, does absolutely nothing.

I am satisfied and elated that NU, and the rest of the conference schools, will have an opportunity to play.
Meh... He handled the whole thing with an amazing lack of tact and piss poor communication. He can take his lumps like a big boy.
Let the fans who ultimately pay his salary be heard.

I watched the BTN live yesterday and the entire panel looked as if they were passing boulders, lol.
I think some of that may be the stress of working out all the details. I think Morty (NW) and the OhSU doc genuinely want to make a season happen. I think most, if not all, of the ADs wanted it to happen, although it seems Barry may be the most reluctant among them.

KFW was obviously uncomfortable, having been publicly called out for his crap show.

Excerpt from the show:

Reporter: "Kevin, how much damage do you think your poor communication and leadership has done to the B1G conference?"

KFW: "Thank you for your comment. It's good to hear your voice; hope you are well. I try to use every opportunity to get better."

Poor communication, maybe. Still does not rise to the level of being a whipping post because a bunch of "fans" want to whine.

Well the 11-3 bit of info didn't even come out for, what, a week after? He absolutely sucks as a leader and communicator.

Absolutely. I never understood why people run to the defense of someone poorly doing their job while making $5 million per year. I don't feel sorry for KW-19. For his level of employment and salary he should be more then capable of tactfully providing communication of what's going on, regardless of the decision by the presidents.

I never really paid attention when Warren was hired to replace Delaney as Commissioner of the BIG10. Looks like a NFL guy to me. Why was he hired? Am I missing something?
