Here’s a sentence I bet you never imagined reading back in March: With so much going on in our country these days, it can be easy to forget we’re still in the midst of a pandemic.

The SEC re-opened its campuses to football players on Monday, as Stage 1 of college football’s rumbling back to life after three months of slumber. By the end of the month, most every program in the sport will join them.

Plenty of teams produce “The boys are back in town!” videos each summer, but not in June, and not with the N-95 and its sibling products featured so prominently.

Here’s hoping a year from now this will be nothing more than a relic of a strange blip in college football history.
