>>Sources: Big Ten Conference To Make Football Announcement
(Chicago, IL) — The Big Ten Conference is expected make an announcement today (Tuesday) about the 2020 football season. Multiple sources are reporting university presidents and chancellors will vote again after postponing fall sports last August. Pressure from players, fans, and President Trump has forced the conference to reconsider. A major factor is the availability of new rapid tests for COVID-19. If the vote is to jump-start the football season, the earliest teams could play would be October 17th – several weeks later than conferences like the Big 12 and the Southeastern Conference. Big Ten teams would play eight games only.
>>Green Bay Packers Take An Injury Hit To The Offensive Line – Lose Lane Taylor
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers were lucky last season when it came to injuries along the offensive line. That has already changed. Right guard Lane Taylor suffered a knee injury in the opener that will require surgery and keep him on the sideline for the rest of the season. Tackle Billy Turner was already out with a knee injury and backup guard Lucas Patrick is dealing with a shoulder problem. Sixth-round draft Pick Jon Runyan was forced into action at right guard against the Vikings and his coaches say he performed well over the final 12 minutes. Runyan had worked only at left guard during the team’s training camp.
>>Bucks Owner Assures Antetokounmpo He’s Ready To Spend Big To Win
(Milwaukee, WI) — Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry has assured the NBA team’s star that he’s ready to spend big to win. ESPN is reporting the Bucks are ready to pay the luxury tax after going over the salary cap – if that’s what it takes to bring a championship to Milwaukee. Lasry and Antetokounmpo met over the weekend. It’s possible a better way to improve the roster will be to make a trade or two. To complete a deal that would make a real difference could involve giving up a player like Khris Middleton or Eric Bledsoe. The Bucks ownership team is making promises in an effort to keep Antetokounmpo from leaving as a free agent in 2021.
