Now it can be told.
The Big Ten really, truly did take a vote before scrapping fall football, and the result was 11-3. Sources told the Tribune that Ohio State, Nebraska and Iowa dissented.
The conference opted to reveal the 11-3 vote Monday by filing a brief in response to the lawsuit brought by eight Nebraska players, who allege that the Big Ten is in breach of contract by not following its governing documents.
The lawsuit sought transparency on the vote and alleged the Big Ten’s decision was based on flawed medical information.
