Football is back, which means Mark Pantoni needs to find a new reason to exist online.
Just wondering at what point @markpantoni stops by

When your wife puts your social media habits on display, you know you need to make a change. Have been there, Mark. Been there.
Word of the day: Extol.
IT SOUNDS … OPTIMISTIC? I will not lie, after all these hell months I am not sure I know how to deal with optimism at this point. But if such a thing still exists these days, this is certainly a source of it.
Probably makes contact tracking disappear. CFB game delays so far are mostly due to contact tracking, not the number of positive tests. This is why # B1G thinks it can get through an 8-game season without open weeks. https://t.co/NNcDIcV0R4

In other words, this is how the big ten will avoid situations that we have already seen in other schools where entire position groups are quarantined. It also means that it is very unlikely that they will have to cancel or postpone games.
All of these are very good things and I am glad they exist! Wow. What a nice change of pace.
30 SEVERAL YEARS. As funny as it may be, the only way Michigan would have to avoid a skewed loss to Ohio State this year if the game simply did not happen.
Things looked boring on that front for about a month, but now that The Game has been restored, Michigan is in trouble. And no one can talk about it more than one of the latest Wolverine harvesters.

My only question is, what the hell does he think will change in the next 30 years?
OSU FEELING FRISKY. We have no idea what Ohio State’s schedule looks like, but we know football is back!
And Ohio State’s schedule … somehow it reflects perfectly?
To be fair, “Football is Back” would probably lead more matches than at least 70 percent of the actual Big Ten Conference. Perhaps this would be a strength of scheduling increase.
VOTE. The NCAA officially releases all of its athletes from training, practice, games, or any other team activity on Election Day because this is America, and civic engagement is how we function as a society.
Shout to the NCAA to do the right thing here. I assume a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut.
SONG OF THE DAY. “Heart of Glass” by Blondie.
DO NOT STICK ON SPORTS. A dentist from Alaska who cheated on Medicaid and pulled out a patient’s tooth while riding on a glider is sentenced to prison … A man takes a 5-hour bus ride with suitcases filled with body parts … The controversial company that uses DNA for to outline the faces of criminals … Gravediggers speak out against horrific conditions … Chuck E. Cheese will ruin 7 billion prize tickets … A man discovers a brain washed ashore on a beach …
