Football coaches others came together and felt it. We're not going to be up to start football and our follow Olympic sports on prime as plan which already delayed. September. Twenty six and it's a point to give clarity. To do now, there's been a ton of great uncertainty and great anxiety a forever. We also feel a responsibility based on all the trends that we've seen try to give some of that certain team clarity, and that's why we've said knock before January first people can plan you know emotionally psychologically as well as physically. And we got a lot of work to do and we don't have every question answered right now. So we're GONNA dig back in our directors football coaches, football working group others peers from other conferences. To continue our scenario planning all along I. Think we said You know we got scenario ABC. And we moved from scenario. ADA SCENARIO BE in. July. WENT TO CONFERENCE only ten game schedule, and now you don't remove into an.

I mean, tell me tell me tell me what you say but beyond is by Jim He has probably the worst reputation but I thought he was very poignant there. I did not think the big ten commissioner handled his we didn't play that but I watched it. He he he spoke straight he didn't. He didn't give a thousand page document. He just talk right to the the issue was only honest public compelling probably truthful and totally as you say straightforward and honest I mean I I mean I I left I left out of my chair. I never expected to see anybody involved in the high level sports like he is say the things he said that is exactly correct ball. I don't care what anybody says it's responsible sunny anything different he said. That lady before him to ask the question about accountability and that's what it should be. We're GONNA we're.
