NCAA football postponements

Vandy and Mizzou was already postponed and now Florida just had 19 positive results (not including tracing). The Florida-LSU game is on thin ice now. VT has had our issues, other schools are seeing bigger surges now too.

Baylor had a bunch positive today too.

They'd previously shut down all football activities it was so bad at Baylor (link). Saw an article today that said they have 28 cases on the team and 14 staff members all positive.

Well what do ya know?

You could say these cancellations..... are spreading like a virus

These cancellations...are contagious.

We need to spread the word and make this article... go viral

You guys are killing it.

Guess the SEC just doesn't care enough about football.

it just doesn't mean more

The earlier report of 19 players out was incorrect. It is 5.

Orlando Sentinel

Somebody heard covid-19 and misinterpreted I bet. Lol

The source you posted said that 5 tested positive on Sunday, and 14 more tested positive today. Hence, 19.

I was just going on what the school had acknowledged at the time. If it is between a Twitter "source" and public reporting from the school, I'm going with what the school says.

Of course we are seeing surges, people are getting complacent. We exist in a world where people think that their politics will protect them from a virus. That is how dumb this has become. Downvote me as much as you please, I will wake up tomorrow healthy and right

I will wake up tomorrow healthy and right

I hope so

You can be healthy and right and also still in violation of CGs.

Thanks everyone for not taking the bait.

Does "Downvote me as much as you please" translate to "Downvote me all you want, I'm going to speak the dam truth?"

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Respect my decision?

Where's the beef?

Yep woke up this morning healthy and right.

Its a shame that I was downvoted for calling attention to a virus that has killed 210,000+ of our fellow citizens. But I wear it gladly.

You were downvoted to oblivion for bringing up the political aspect of COVID despite the mods repeatedly telling us to take the conversation elsewhere. And you still aren't doing yourself any favors with this one.

Thank you 🙏

Isn't this an auto ban or something? Literally baiting the community.....again

Stop.

It's more of a shame that you don't understand Covid + Politics doesn't need to be discussed on TKP. We get enough of that crap in our everyday life and every time we turn on the tv or social media.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

the community has largely addressed this already (and mod squad thanks you all for it) -- AZ please stop smugly trying to bait everyone into a debate while framing it as "calling attention" as if the other commenters haven't heard.

Quite week for Florida...coach announces he wants a full house for the LSU game shortly followed by the announcement that the rona has temporarily shut down the football program...and they lost last week. Peak Florida Man.

Florida being Florida doing Florida things.

John Laaser tested positive? Bill Roth is back?!?!

Whatever. It was one bad year.

No, no. Someone else

Bill McChain is coming back?!?

Nope

You know, if their players were really dedicated to football, this wouldn't be happening. Isn't that right, Bronco?

Florida-LSU has been postponed due to florida not being able to play.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

So it guess it only hit their offense because not having a defense didn't stop them last weekend.

BREAKING: #Alabama statement: "Early this afternoon, we received notification that Coach Saban and (AD) Greg Byrne tested positive for COVID-19. Both immediately left the facility and went to their homes to self-isolate after receiving that information."— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) October 14, 2020 " />Nick Saban just tested positive for Covid-19 according to ESPN

Ok, i get that there are pulses of outbreaks, but WHY is this news?
Its not.

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Honestly I would expect to hear about any P5 head coach that tests positive and has to miss games, so the fact that this is the most successful coach in the 21st century is certainly newsworthy.

Because CFB writers need material on a Wednesday. Also Bama not having Saban against UGA is a storyline that is easy to run with.

News? It's posted by Bruce Feldman, who writes about CFB. And it's about Saban, a coach that is the top dog for a perennial top 5 team, with a top 5 matchup this weekend, and has played in 4 of the last 5 national title games, and won 5 of the last 11 natty's. He IS the biggest coach in college football. He is the news.

Cincy game has been postponed. Ole Miss also dealing with rise in cases.

Good luck to the B1G and PAC for scheduling no bye weeks. It will be interesting if any missed games just don't count or are forfeits for the team that cannot field enough players.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

As far as the rest of the country is concerned, the PAC already forfeited the season. 7 games? Really?

They just wanted to feel included. They were way late to the table

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

At least they'll fill their bowl allotment, including one in the NY6 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Just wondering where that money ends up going? Split among the schools that did follow? The commissioner's back pocket? Put aside in a bank account with generous interest to be redistributed next year? The Sun Belt?

Some of that money needs to be spent on a class to teach coaches that the correct way to wear PPE doesn't involve looking like an uncircumsied penis.

Whatever. It was one bad year.

"We started on Monday using broadcast game footage evaluating every time a head coach is on camera, is a mask up, yes or no?" he said. "If you don't have that mask in place a super-majority of time ... that puts you in jeopardy of a fine."

Gotta say, when watching the game real time, this made me wonder why coaches are even wearing masks.

edit: this is in reference to the link about SEC schools losing revenue for not following COVID-19 protocols, accidently commented instead of replied to that post
