I say we cancel it. They obviously don’t have things under control down there and we have too much opportunity in our future to risk them bringing covid to our team.
Not sure what constitutes "under control" in this situation, but it certainly looks like they are taking things seriously. If they do the proper pre-game testing and don't have a bunch of new positives with players, I don't see any great risk.
Legit question. Are there any documented cases of Covid being transmitted to an opposing player in football? I haven't heard of any.
They would’ve had double digits out last week because of contact tracing and positives.
This week their coach gets it. He’s been around coaches and players the past couple days so it’s possible he spread it in ways that wouldn’t pop a positive test until late this week.
As for documented cases of an opposing player, there’s nothing that has been proven to absolutely 100% having come from an opponent but there are many examples of a team having an outbreak one week then the team they played on the weekend having one the week after.
Our guys have worked way too hard, jumped through way too many hoops, and performed way too well to potentially lose the opportunity to play Tech next week.
We gain nothing out of playing Southern Miss. If we win it’s another win against a team with a terrible record. If we lose, it’s an embarrassment. We are already bowl eligible.
This weekend is a lose lose situation.
Edit: not gonna delete this because that would be cowardly but totally forgot we have a week between Southern Miss and Tech. That changes my perspective. We have time between the games in case they spread it to us.
