IOWA CITY, Iowa – The parents of Iowa football players are asking the Big Ten for transparency when it comes to the conference’s decision to cancel the fall season. The group penned a letter to league with an Aug. 19 deadline for a meeting explaining its action.

The parents of Hawkeye long-snapper Austin Spiewak, Kristin and Phil Spiewak from Rolling Meadows, Ill., delivered the letter in person to the Big Ten office in Chicago.

The letter stated, we strongly feel the following issues must be addressed immediately:

-A meeting with commissioner and committee members with meaningful and thorough explanations to a group of representatives that include parents, players and coaches.

-To be able to ask questions and get direct answers and to have a say in decision-making process.

-To be able to review a full action plan including protocols and safety measures.

-To respond to us no later than end of business on Aug. 19 at Hawkeyeparents@gmail.com.
