Like most people I suspect I was glad to hear Wednesday that commissioners of the Big Ten Conference had decided to reverse an earlier decision and would allow for the start of an abbreviated college football season in their conference October 23rd. At least for now, fans will not be permitted in the stands during games that will be played in an 8-game regular season. Parents of players may be permitted at games. What wasn’t immediately announced is whether marching bands will be permitted to play. There are some things we do no. Tailgating which is a big part of the way Buckeyes fans enjoy college football won’t be permitted this season And we can also figure that some of the games late in the season will be played in some very wintry conditions in December. You will be able to watch Big Ten games on TV and the league’s commissioners hope you will because TV revenue no doubt played a major part in the decision to allow games to be played this fall. That’s the way I see it.
