(Ohio) – Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is commending the Big Ten Conference for its decision to resume fall sports on campus.
The AG issued the following statement regarding the ability now for The Ohio State University to safely resume competition:
“The initial decision warranted further review – everyone wants the kids to be safe moving forward – but with comprehensive testing and medical protocols in place, the return to fall sports is a winning move.
While it took longer than I wanted, the decision to allow sports again at The Ohio State University and other member universities is the correct one. This was always about fairness and being equitable in the agreement between the conference and the universities. Going forward, it’s my hope that the future of the Big Ten is always fought on the field and not in the courtroom.
Kudos to OUS President Kristina Jonson who stepped into her new role and showed exemplary leadership, instantly making a difference for the university.
