Good News and Bad News for Coronavirus in College Football

College football has given us some good news and some bad news as coronavirus cases spike across the country. As is tradition, I’ll start with the bad news.

COVID-19 continues to plague the Clemson football program. Friday afternoon the school announced 14 more players tested positive, increasing their coronavirus cases to 37 over the last month. Now about a third of Dabo Swinney’s team has contracted coronavirus.

Now, for some of the good news. None of the Clemson Tigers who tested positive were hospitalized. All of the initial 23 players with positive tests have completed their 10-day period of isolation.

In the state of Texas you have to go to Lubbock to find any good coronavirus news. The Texas Tech football program reported 23 positives among 197 players and staff that were tested. All but two fully recovered and no one has been hospitalized.

Deciphering what exactly all of these positive tests mean for the sport this fall is almost impossible to tell. One thing we can safely say is that it’s great to hear players and staffers have not been forced to receive medical attention from hospitals, even though the numbers still sound relatively high around college football.

    Jay Bilas is tweeting about this column today saying, “College sports still hasn’t had the broader conversation…how many is too many?”

    They will keep pushing things until a kid gets serious ill or dies, then all bets are off and the blowback will be huge, all because $$$ means more than a kid getting sick or worse.
