Michigan State football players reacted to the news of the Big Ten cancelling its fall sports and potentially moving them to the spring.

Monday brought major news to the college football world. After weeks of speculation, the Big Ten voted 12-2 to cancel fall sports and there’s a belief that commissioner Kevin Warren prefers football to happen in the spring amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was a crushing blow to everyone who was still holding out hope for a 2020 season — and that includes players who were pushing the #WeWantToPlay hashtag on Twitter.

Michigan State players were fresh off a 14-day quarantine after some players and coaches tested positive for the virus. Fall practices kicked back up last week as Mel Tucker finally got to get his players on the field but things haven’t lasted long because the Big Ten’s schools voted overwhelmingly (other than Iowa and Nebraska) to cancel fall sports.

However, that report has been refuted, so we don’t know what to believe right now.

That left players, coaches and fans shocked but many understood the move. It hurt to hear officially, but it was expected. This seemed like an inevitable move.

Word on the street is that the Pac-12 is going to join the Big Ten soon but the ACC, Big 12 and SEC may not be so quick to cancel the season.

So how did some Michigan State players react to the big news?

There will be more reactions when the news becomes official as the report that there was an official vote by Big Ten schools has been refuted.

Keep it tuned in here as we’ll have updated when everything becomes official, but players are on both sides of the fence.
