Nick Saban Tests Positive for COVID-19

The coronavirus has a firm grip on the SEC.

Today the second SEC game of the week, LSU-Florida, was postponed by coronavirus, Lane Kiffin revealed his Ole Miss football team is dealing with an outbreak and tonight Alabama officials announced that head coach Nick Saban and athletics director Greg Byrne have tested positive for COVID-19.

Despite contracting the virus, Saban was able to instruct practice from home. Even so, this will keep college football’s greatest head coach off the sideline when No. 3 Georgia travels to No. 2 Alabama this Saturday for the most highly-anticipated game of the young college football season.

    So Ole Miss has a bunch of positive players and Saban tests positive after Alabama plays Ole Miss? Contact Tracing shouldn’t be too difficult on this case.

    What surprises me is that it took this long. I hope he heals – in time – and lives. It is a virus. A virus which we should all fear; but a virus. We live in a society…social animals we are. You will either catch the virus and live. Or, you can hide from it and die of something else. Or, it will kill you. Odds are you live.

    Since the CDC reported that 70% of people who test positive with COVID have been wearing a mask, maybe masks aren’t effective after all.

      And not only that but there is still no reliable test so this means nada. Doesn’t help testing that it’s all BS.

      I think you’re misinterpreting that study. It shows us that only 1 out of every 5,235 people who wear a mask test positive. You have to remember there are literally hundreds of millions of Americans who wear masks and who dont test positive everyday.

      Of the 154 participants, 95% reported eating inside a restaurant in the past 2 weeks and 45% reported being in close contact (within 6 feet) of somebody who had covid for over 15 minutes. The participants were at a medical facility with symptoms. It’s not like they chose random people. So yes, you can conclude that wearing a mask will not protect you if you put yourself in a danger zone. This is not breaking news.

      Tony you really should visit the CDC website since you put so much trust in them. https://thewashingtonsentinel.com/cdc-quietly-admits-that-less-than-10000-really-died-from-covid-19/

      Tony is a moron of such report he left the evidence here in print for the world to see.. forever.

      Some of you MF’s are impressive with what you think you know. Makes me wonder if you eat your own shit, too. Damn.

    when Nick Saban easily beats this and is fine 3 days from now will everyone start to realize that Covid is just a mild flu? I hope so.

      Our 74 year old President had it and was fine you would think people would start to wonder. Folks COVID can kill you with or without underlying health conditions but so can the flu and pneumonia.

      Exactly. Don’t forget to mention our 74 year old president never exercised and eats McDonalds like every day and is overweight. Lol. If he’s fine, most of us will live.

      As someone else said, it’s a virus SO dangerous you have to be tested to find out you have it….except there is no reliable test to date.

    Masks are porous. Air has to be able to come through so that we can breath. The covid virus particles are much smaller than air molecules. Masks do nothing to stop them, either in or out. It’s all a hoax, and sooner or later folks will realize how they have been dupped. If masks really worked, we would have been wearing them for years to stop the flu.

      Masks don’t work. Viruses are smaller than air molecules. Wow. Do you ever take just a second and think about how stupid you sound to normal people? So I guess you don’t want your surgeon wearing a mask while doing surgery on you anymore. No need to wash his hands either. SMH- RWNJ Media and Facebook has rotten your goddamn brains.

      If anyone should stop and look at how stupid and ignorant their comments are it is you Damage, but I guess you’re too busy drooling in front of the tv allowing MSM to control your thoughts.

    They should just scrap the entire season and preemptively do so with basketball as well. Why do we still insist on playing with fire?

      Don’t need to be a medical expert to find dozens of medical experts who back everything we are saying, yes they can be found on youtube along with all the medical liars you sheep believe.

    Mash, some of us can read charts, seek out and parse out own info… the rest are clowns like Tony and 4K who have been wrong since the inception and will continue to be wrong because they’re weak men who fear a boogie man they can’t see, but love to hear and believe the stories they’re told.

    Meanwhile, the world moves on while they piss their pants in the paralysis of ignorance. Just another day… Idiots are still idiots.
