"Free the Big Ten," he said on Sept. 5 as he attended a parent-led protest of the Big Ten's decision to postpone fall sports. It wasn't long before Harbaugh got his wish. 

On Wednesday, the Big Ten announced its football season will begin the weekend of Oct. 24 — and Harbaugh's reaction was immediate.

"Great news today," Harbaugh said in a statement released by the athletic department. "Over the past month, I could sense the anticipation from our players and coaches, and I’m thrilled on their behalf that they will have a chance to play a 2020 season. Stay positive. Test negative. Let’s play football."

Harbaugh was adamant this summer that football should be played. He previously released a letter Aug. 10 (one day before the initial postponement) explaining his reasoning, citing his team's testing results and COVID-19 protocols. During the recent protest on Michigan's campus, Harbaugh said his hope was that the Wolverines could return to play "as soon as we possibly can."

"We’re ready to play," Harbaugh said Sept. 5. "We’d be ready — we’re gonna be ready to play a game in two weeks. Get the pads on and our guys have trained without a pause since June 15. So that’s our position. We’re ready to play as soon as we possibly can play.”

Michigan president Mark Schlissel, who was both part of the initial vote to postpone football and this week's vote to return to competition, also released a statement Wednesday morning.

"I want to share my support for the Big Ten decision to begin football competition next month," Schlissel wrote.

"... Earlier I expressed my concern, shared by my fellow Big Ten presidents and chancellors, that we just didn’t know enough about the health and safety concerns unique to intercollegiate athletics to move forward with practices and competition. As has been so true during this pandemic, we continue to learn more every day and we have adjusted our approach based on the new information that was developed."

Reality of making a show like Shark Tank is fking insane during pandemic

A TV insider tells Page Six the “f – king insane” realities of making a major show in person during the pandemic — including 10-day solitary confinements and hotel ballrooms converted into production facilities.

A production source on ABC’s long-running “Shark Tank” told Page Six that the business-competition show had booked out five floors of the ritzy Palazzo suites at the Venetian Las Vegas for the crew, cast and contestants to live in — plus its ballrooms and the entire adjoining Sands Expo Convention Center, which had been converted into production facilities.

We’re told that the cast — which includes Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec and Mark Cuban — plus the crew and contestants — have to do COVID swab tests before leaving home and can only depart for Vegas after the tests come back negative.

Then they get body-temperature checks when they arrive at the hotel, and another COVID swab test before being taken to their rooms.

A production source added that even after two negative tests and around a week of isolation, the contestants are still given a third swab test before they’re allowed to start taping with the show’s stars.

“They can see people down at the pool hanging out, and they’re shut in a room for 10 days,” said an insider, who added that folks on the show loaded in PlayStations, guitars, rowing machines and other items to pass the time.

Staff and contestants can eat in a cafeteria in one of the ballrooms during filming, but they’re still kept very far apart. “After three negative COVID tests, they’re still treated like Ebola monkeys,” said a source.

Despite all the inconveniences, insiders have been impressed by the overall logistics. “I never felt unsafe in any way,” said a person associated with the show. “And it’s incredible that they’ve managed to get the show done under the circumstances.”
