College football’s biggest star has tested positive for COVID-19.

The news that makes you say “WOW” was reported by Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Clemson will host Boston College on Saturday, a warm-up for next weekend’s highly-anticipated matchup with fourth-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend.

There were many “what if” hypothetical scenarios we played out as college football fans in the preseason. One of those was, “What if Trevor Lawrence gets COVID-19 right before the College Football Playoff?” Half of that hypothetical has come true. At least now he’ll be immune from contracting the virus before the Playoff?

It will take some time for all of us to wrap our heads around this enormous bit of news. In the meantime, Godspeed to Lawrence on a speedy recovery.

    He will be fine in 2 or 3 days, if he he even has symptoms. I assume they will test him again tomorrow and Saturday. Hopefully, it was a false positive. If not should be clear for the next game.

    Question is, if they lose this game will it be overlooked because he didn’t play and if it is, would the same be true if it were an SEC school or any other school? I say yes it would be overlooked for Clemson but not for just about anyone else.

      Haha Frontline Doctors, they lost their credibility when that one doctor endorsed by Trump was revealed to believe in demon sperm and alien-controlled politicians. I’m all for giving credence to a doctor’s studies and research concerning the effectiveness of masks, but don’t hitch your wagon to those crazies.

      Yeah I’d rather “hitch my wagon” to the doctors who spread fear and say what you want to believe. If you have any critical thinking skills at all, and it seems most don’t, everything those doctors said makes perfect sense, on the other hand, if you only believe what you see on the nightly news then there is no hope for you.

      There is no pandemic and there never was one, all you have to do is look at the number of deaths. And why are they suddenly only tracking cases? If one person test 4 times it counts as 4 cases and anyone who test positive has to test negative 3 more times, so that’s 4 cases.

    Sports-wise, good thing he’s not in the Big10. Testing positive on a Thursday would have him missing 3 games and getting back a day or two before the 4th.

    This season is a farce. They should end it now. Also, they should preemptively cancel the basketball season. We must get past this pandemic first.

    I think Clemson has enough talent to beat BC even without Lawrence. Hopefully, the whole team doesn’t test positive now.

    I am glad these athletic departments are relying on the epidemiologists, public health experts, and other people with legitimate science backgrounds, in their decision-making. To do otherwise would be foolish.
