Ohio State AD: We May Not Play This Season

Andy Berg Headshot

Even as the Big Ten announced it would hold a season that involved playing only conference opponents, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith acknowledged there is a very real chance that college sports will not get the green light this fall. 

“I am very concerned,” Smith told the Big Ten Network. “I used to be cautiously optimistic, but I’m not even there now. When you look at our trajectory with the virus, we are either the worst country or one of the worst. We wanted September available to use to provide flexibility and control to handle disruptions.”
