"I respect the decision of the Big Ten to postpone our fall season. Our top priority is the safety and well being of our athletes and if the medical experts tell us it is not safe to play, we have
to honor that information. I am personally gutted for my players, who have done an incredible job throughout the process adhering to all of the safety and medical protocols put in place. We will be
ready to play when the time comes. I want to thank our entire medical staff for working tirelessly to put us in the best position and commend our president Darryl Pines and the Director of
Athletics Damon Evans for their leadership during this time."
