Ohio State QB Justin Fields

The Big Ten conference made the decision to postpone the season until the spring after medical advice and votes from presidents and chancellors of the conference. After Big Ten made the decision to postpone the 2020 season for safety reasons, Ohio State QB Justin Fields started a petition to immediately reinstate the 2020 football season.

In his petition, he states that players have the right to make their own decision in regard to playing or opting out of the fall season.

He went on to say, players believe:

..the safety protocols have been established and can be maintained to mitigate concerns of exposure to Covid 19.

Fields has gained support from people across the country, along with his teammates and other players in the conference who have publicly supported his petition. As if 9 am Monday morning, the petition has over 223,000 signatures.
