Big Ten Presidents are set to take a re-vote regarding starting up the 2020 season in the next couple of days. After initially voting ‘no’ on the season, all signs point to UM President Mark Schlissel voting yes, as well as many other Presidents who originally voted against it.
From a source this morning on whether Michigan's president will vote to play football: "He's trying to put out so many fires on campus that he just doesn't have the political capital to deny sports, especially when the blowback was far greater than I think anyone expected."

Not saying this will happen, but if the #B1G presidents vote to resume play (I think they will), they would benefit from a unanimous vote, even if some schools end up opting out. After the ugliest, most divisive month in league history, a united front would be helpful today.

It would be believed, if they choose to play, that a season would take place at end of October.
