Strength in numbers

This comes as something of a relief.

I have my doubts JT will play (I don’t have those about George), but in any event, his presence means the coaches don’t have to restrict Stetson’s run threat.

Also, on a related note:

After the Centers for Disease Control announced updated guidelines for quarantine and isolation recommendations for those who test positive for COVID-19, the SEC is expected to follow a similar path for its virus protocols, sources tell Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde.

The CDC’s updated guidelines recommend a shortened isolation period from 10 days to five for those who test positive and are asymptomatic, followed by five days of wearing a mask around others.

“The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after,” the CDC update reads. “Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for five days and, if asymptomatic at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to mask for five days to minimize the risk of infecting others.”

We’re probably too close to game time for this change to have much impact for the semis, but it could be a bigger deal down the road for the national championship game.

    I know the CFP has made the point about teams will forfeit if they have a severe outbreak but does anyone really believe they won’t make an exception if corona goes through bama like a dose of the salts? I know it is a reach but just say their whole qb room and o line room pops positive 2 days before the game. No way they make them forfeit.
