Mike Bobinski, Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at Purdue University statement in response to Big Ten announcement:
Today’s announcement from the Big Ten Conference regarding medical protocols and fall sport competition signals an important milestone as we move forward with planning for the fall of 2020.
Throughout this process the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans has remained our top priority. Working collaboratively over the last few months, within the conference and beyond, we have diligently explored multiple scenarios related to fall competition.
We’re excited about the possibilities for the upcoming football season and, while this year will certainly be different, we look forward to competing against the very best of the B1G week in and week out.
With an environment that continues to evolve we certainly don’t have a complete set of answers today. Additional information and details will be communicated as soon as we are able to gain clarity and make decisions regarding items such as game day logistics, venue capacities and ticketing. We appreciate everyone’s continued patience, understanding and support.
