People quickly turned to social media to share their excitement.
The Big Ten football season is officially back on, with the announcement from Kevin Warren and the conference coming Wednesday morning of a reborn season beginning in mid-October. That means Michigan football will once again have a shot to play at Michigan Stadium, touch the M Club banner and (maybe) win a few big games.
Michigan coaches, pundits and fans alike took to social media to share their excitement of the big news of the day, starting with the Michigan football Twitter account sharing a pretty cool graphic.

Then you have reactions like this, which you’ll probably see a lot more of in the coming days from people out west (sorry, PAC 12).
