Back from a shower and a new outfit, @BalesFootball has a little less than 3 hours and 30 minutes to 450 push-ups to win his bet of doing 2,400 push-ups in 12 hours. There are hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line. Live view here
Arkansas AD @HunterYurachek says his athletic department is anticipating between a 5-15% loss of revenue heading into 2021, "and that's with playing a football season." Yurachek added he has not had discussions about eliminating sports at Arkansas.

Heartwarming to see the Patriots pay for 1.2 million N95 masks (it cost $2M, according to @WSJ). Embarrassing that they had to send their plane to China to get them. The letdown of how our supply chain was constructed and fumbled is tragic.
No one in my house will play with me.
