Saw tweet (I think from Werner) that Warren said Illinois University in his opening remarks. It was before I turned the program, so I can’t confirm.

Just prior to introducing BB, Warren walked over to a guy off to the side and whispered something in his ear. I swear it looked like the guy whispered back, Bret. Bret. I sure hope I’m wrong and Warren didn’t ask the guy, “Is it Bret or Brent?”

Warren is no longer entitled to the benefit of the doubt. You and I both know that's exactly what happened.

Warren is the absolute worst person we could have as a commissioner with the end game of college realignment happening. Absolutely nothing he says or does inspires confidence he can lead or make tough decisions. He can't even meet the simplest thresholds of competence during press conferences.

he's way over his head and terrible in so many ways.
Even the silly optics of authoritatively cancelling the Big10 football season last August at the exact same time his own son was playing for Miss St.
He's fumbled the ball so many times on so many issues, you begin to wonder if/when some B1G presidents find him a landing spot in the NFL office or something so he can quit with a little dignity before he gets fired

His inept actions regarding the B1G regular season championship status and allowing scUM to do whatever it wanted to do as to when and who it was going to play should have been grounds for recall , dismissal and banishment to a church league janitorial position with no compensation.....

JMHO

You know, I’m all for giving people many chances to prove their worth. Sometimes you really have to learn on the job. He had a crappy year with everything going on last year. I can be patient with that.

But honestly, to misname an OG member of the conference and not have a true plan for this year? (Cynical but also realistic me assumes this is so the B1G doesn’t have to change the rules midway like they did last year to make sure Ohio State gets into the playoffs-optics from that were not great). That is not okay.

If the Texas OU thing is happening, you really have to ask yourself if this is the guy you want leading you through conference realignment, TV contracts, an expanded CFP, etc.

Does anyone have a video of him getting booed at the B1G tournament? I was there, booing too loudly to capture the video. I'm generally a very positive person, but that moment was well deserved.
