Big Ten Extends Suspension of Team Activities Through June 1

Big Ten Logo

The Big Ten has announced an extension of their ongoing suspension of all team activities through June 1.

Back on March 27, the conference extended their original suspension until May 4.

This will also continue the ban on all on-campus and off-campus recruiting visits.

Here is the release from the Big Ten.


The Big Ten Conference announced today that it will extend the previously announced suspension of all organized team activities through June 1, 2020, and will re-evaluate again at that time.

This is an additional measure to the previously announced cancellation of all conference and non-conference competitions through the end of the academic year, including spring sports that compete beyond the academic year. The Conference also has previously announced a moratorium on all on- and off-campus recruiting activities for the foreseeable future.

The Big Ten Conference will continue to use this time to work with the appropriate medical experts and institutional leadership to determine next steps relative to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main priority of the Big Ten Conference is to ensure the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, faculty, fans and media as we continue to monitor all developing and relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.

  1. nb. some may feel my comments on this thread ‘cross the line’ of the LR ban on politics and religion.

    So to clarify as the writer of my comments, my intention is to comment using relevant to BIG history, human relationships common to us all, while including everyone AND excluding no one.

    Yet, it is easy for me to see that LR could choose to delete my comments here, and / or ban me regardless of my intentions, by interpreting them as LR chooses.

    like with all the rest of my comments… ‘they’re related’…. ;-{)}

  2. B1G: can ‘dis-member’ bee far bee-hind? Poor Poland… it was ‘so sad’ but i don’t remember., for “it never happened, period Period.” I’m ‘so excited’ …’ ‘can’t wait’ to be told whatever to feel think say do by my latest greatest ever Fearless Leader Ever.

    ..for i am your Fearless Leader?


  3. “continue” = same

    “work with” dodges all qualitative descriptions & information… includes such minor historical reminders of ‘work with’ as. the Nazi-Soviet Pact of 1939… a true honest “love hate relationship” to ‘whatever’ by…..

    somehow, “monitor” is a far more accurate term for what’s ‘being done’… than “leadership”….

    gee… i wonder how many “#1 priorities” there are in a “main priority”?

    hmmm… this is ‘so ordinary’ it is ‘totally obnoxious’… so my WAG is… we’ll totally ignore “all developing and relevant” issues… Honest! We will ‘actually suspend’ all problem solving, yes indeedy.


    Stayed stewed for further ignor-ance guarantees on Jun 4th…. You can ‘count’ on it!
