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