The parents wanted to make their voices heard.

Randy Wade, the father of Ohio State cornerback Shaun Wade, organized a rally at the Big Ten's headquarters in Chicago in response to the conference's decision to postpone the fall athletics season.

Wade was joined by a number of other parents of Ohio State players as well as parents from Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois.

The group asked for transparency from Big Ten officials and for commissioner Kevin Warren and the conference's 14 athletic directors to have a Zoom meeting with parents' associations from each school to answer questions that they have about the decision to postpone fall sports and the conference's plan for a winter/spring season.

You can take a look at some of the sights from the rally in the photo gallery above.
