IOWA CITY, Iowa – A group of Iowa Football parents responded Thursday to an open letter delivered by Big Ten conference commissioner Kevin Warren a day earlier explaining the league’s position in canceling the fall football season.
“The Iowa Hawkeye Football parents firmly reject BIG10 Commissioner Warren’s press release date 8-19-20,” Thursday’s letter began.
“Commissioner Warren & Presidents have once again failed to address our questions and concerns and therefore their response is unacceptable.”
Here’s the full response from Iowa Football parents:
The group demanded transparency from the conference last week when the move was announced. It planned to be a part of a collection of league parents showing up Friday at Big Ten headquarters in Rosemont, Ill. asking for more answers.
Could a Friday morning "peaceful show of force" outside Big Ten headquarters really influence league officials?
"Come on out wearing the jersey of your favorite team. Mask up and be respectful," said Randy Wade, whose son Shaun plays for Ohio State.https://t.co/2QrIW640l7
