The Big Ten isn’t dead just yet.
Source: Big Ten starting around Thanksgiving would potentially allow the league to play 10 games plus one, as opposed to 8 games plus one later in January. This is all VERY early in *discussion* phase. Expect presidents and TV partners to have a significant say.

According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, the Big Ten potentially beginning the season on Thanksgiving would allow a more traditional scheduling model. As opposed to the eight-game season that would have taken place in January, they would instead have the opportunity to go to a 10-plus one model. Things are still early in the decision making process, and presidents and TV partners will have huge lean, per Thamel.
