“This isn't over!”

Despite reports that a cancellation of the 2020 Big Ten football season could be imminent, Ryan Day and the Ohio State football program aren't going down without a fight.

He made that clear in a tweet on Monday afternoon, just a few hours before the Big Ten presidents and chancellors are reportedly set to meet again to potentially make a final decision on the season.

Day joined a chorus of other Ohio State football coaches and players who tweeted Monday about their desire to play this fall and their belief that the football program has created the safest possible environment for the Buckeyes to be able to play this year despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several other Big Ten coaches also made statements on Monday advocating for college football to still be played this fall, including Michigan's Jim Harbaugh, Penn State's James Franklin and Nebraska's Scott Frost.

Day said last week that he planned to do whatever he could to advocate for his players and speak out on their behalf.

“I want to advocate for these guys, because they work so hard and they deserve it,” Day said.
