Tommy Tuberville sounds off on Big Ten canceling 2020 season: 'Is this communism?'
Former Auburn and Ole Miss coach Tommy Tuberville is running for a senate seat in Alabama.
As he prepares for the election, let’s just say he isn’t a big fan of the NCAA, or of the Big Ten and Pac-12 canceling their fall football seasons.
Appearing on 105.5 WNSP on Wednesday, Tuberville went in on the Big Ten, saying if Nebraska wants to play somewhere else this year, it should be able to (via AL.com):
“The heck with the Big Ten,” Tuberville said. “Is this communism? You can control what everybody is going to do? No. It’s a free country. (Nebraska coach) Scott Frost wants to take his football team to play in the Big 12 and play for a year, so be it.”
Obviously, there are some major hurdles that Nebraska would have to clear to play elsewhere this fall, so we’ll see what becomes of that.
For now, though, it seems like Tuberville will continue to go after the NCAA as he hits the campaign trail.
