One former Big Ten head coach is skeptical it can play a full football campaign in the spring.

Urban Meyer, who led Ohio State for seven seasons, appeared on Big Ten Network on Tuesday following the conference's cancellation of the fall season.

"No chance," Meyer said when asked about a potential spring campaign, according to 247 Sports' Garrett Stepien. "You can't ask student-athletes to play two seasons in one calendar year.

"We recruited players at Ohio State that have a chance to earn a living and play the game and be rewarded for their great efforts, and you're going to ask them to play spring football - by the way - and then go miss OTAs and not prepare for a dream to go play professional football? That's not fair."

The Big Ten became the first Power 5 conference to cancel its fall season on Tuesday and the Pac-12 followed shortly after.

A number of schools, players, and coaches have expressed disappointment in the announcement. Nebraska stated the school was the "absolute safest place" for student-athletes due to "rigorous (COVID-19) safety protocols."
