Greg McElroy says he thinks Big Ten made decision 'months ago' to cancel season
Last week, the Big Ten announced its 2020 schedule for football, which was set to be a 10-game, conference-only campaign.
Then, on Tuesday, the league decided instead to cancel the football season (as well as other fall sports) with the potential to play in the spring.
On “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Tuesday, SEC Network analyst Greg McElroy said he thinks the Big Ten and commissioner Kevin Warren actually made the decision to cancel the season a long time ago:
–@GregMcElroy believes the Big Ten's decision to postpone its season was made long before this week. "You announced your schedule last week. Tell us what’s changed. The fact that (Kevin Warren) couldn’t provide us with an answer tells us they made this decision months ago.”

Both the Big Ten and Pac-12 have cited medical experts and their reports as reasons for postponing the season, but it’s clear McElroy isn’t buying that narrative.
Will we get any more-detailed answers? Only time will tell.
