At Least 30 LSU football players are in Quarantine due to COVID-19

Yesterday, we got a staggering number of Clemson football players testing positive for COVID-19. Now, college football’s national champions are seeing similar numbers.

According to Sports Illustrated, at least a quarter of LSU’s football roster has been quarantined this week due to virus concerns.

This doesn’t necessarily mean all 30 players have the virus, but those 30 include the undisclosed number of players who have tested positive and those who have been in contact with said players.

In an interview with SI, LSU’s senior associate athletic trainer, Shelly Mullenix would not confirm the actual number of players who did test positive, but she says the number is on par with the rest of the programs around the country.

None of the positive cases have been traced back to workouts within the facility, but have been contracted in the community, at bars and restaurants. People in Baton Rouge fear a big spike after more than 100 LSU nightclub goers tested positive on Friday.

Fingers crossed for college football and good health, folks.

    Sad to say but we won’t have sports this year. Hope I’m wrong 🙁

    This is what happens when people keep acting like idiots. You can’t legislate against stupidity. By the way Kansas State today suspended all athletic activities because 12 of their football players got it.

    If the clinical trials in July are successful there should be 100 million doses of vaccine in January according to Dr. Fauci, that’s when you’ll see sports return.

      Anyone who takes the vaccine is a fool.

      Anyone who believes in outrageous illogical conspiracy theories is an imbecile.

      Fauci will push for it. Just like he pushed for an HIV vaccine in the late 80s screaming to the masses that millions of heterosexuals will die unless they take it. He, like Gates , profits from all this. If you take the upcoming vaccine you are a lemming!

      Tony please shred some light on these calculations using their numbers.

      Overall Worldwide “Claimed Deaths” 362,000 as of 29-May.
      World population 7.9 billion

      Current YTD rate = 362,000/7.8E9 = 0.0046%.
      Converting to full year = 362,000/7.8E8*366days/150days, or 0.013% per year.

      So, even with all of the fudging, this is still only 1/73 of the yearly CDC mortality rate of 0.95% per year.

    This may actually be good for football. If none of the players die from it, then you have probably just made them immune. Cross your fingers that none die.

      None of them will die from coronavirus, they may die with it but not from it.

      Yeah they die from the complications the coronavirus causes. The pneumonia and other things may be listed as the cause of death, but had they not contracted the virus, they wouldn’t have died. Moron.

      4nineNOW, coronavirus doesn’t even have it’s own symptoms, they are the same as the cold, flu and allergies. So because I don’t believe the MSM narrative and my opinion is different than yours you resort to name calling? From what I’ve seen not using the MSM narrative, those who died would’ve died anyway. Prove me wrong.

    We havent had any players test positive yet, so maybe there is still hope. Probably being national champs, instead of staying in doors and avoiding contact, they wanted to go out and mingle. Still possible sports are played, as long as it’s safe to do so, start of the season is still several months away, alot can change during that time span.

      Lol, yeah. Kids only want to go out because they won the championship?

    Testing positive is not a bad thing. It is a sign the the herd is contracting the virus, developing anti-bodies and becoming stringer and conquering the virus. This is how the earth, prior to all this COVID-19 over reaction, got to the point where the earth was overpopulated and we were wondering how we would feed everyone. If the common person knew how frequently we really are exposed to stuff like viruses they could easily be convinced by a corporate controlled media to never come out of their house and wear a body bubble. This is totally blown out of proportion and society needs to get a grip. If you are elderly and sickly take precautions, otherwise the human race needs to get back to normal!

    I don’t know when people think we can hide from this virus. We are just prolonging the inevitable. Healthy young men like these have better than a 99.9% chance of getting through this. The coaches would need to worry more than the players. The more testing we have the more positive tests it will reveal. Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s spiking. Of course more testing shows more results. The same or more could’ve had it two months ago and we just didn’t know.
