Wisconsin breakout QB supposedly tested positive for Covid. They have another test coming and if it’s positive again, he must sit for 21 days.

Both a brutal loss for Wisky, being that Coan is out injured, and a scary moment for fans of any good B1G team because with how hard-line the conference is with the 'Rona, any player on any team could miss 3 games just like that.

And the Big Ten has no flexibility to move games. I hope that we don't find out, but the conference might have to make a tough decision on the favorite in the West.

That's a shame. Hindsight's 20/20, but if the Big Ten hadn't farted around for no reason - wasting valuable weeks, they'd have had some flexibility to reschedule in situations like this. 


The fourth string qb at Wisconsin is probably thinking, " my day to shine, ugh!"


I'm sure Christine Brennan at USA Today is already typing her I-told-you-college-football-was-doomed piece as we speak.

ACC protocol says a player must sit out for 10 days following a positive test. Clemson plays Notre Dame next week. He would be required to sit that game.

Do they have anything regarding negative tests following a positive? If he’s truly positive he will miss ND no question based on their protocols. 

Hoping it’s a false positive and he is cleared.

Per a tweet I saw from a verified account from ESPN, the ACC does not have a “test out” process. Which to me says, a positive test is a positive test. 

My assumption is the rule will be changed before the weekend is over. And he will have a negative result in the next day or so.

No chance he plays against ND.

Wonder if it’ll be a “false positive” 😉😉😉

He has mild symptoms according to his coach.

Hopefully he’ll be okay with it but I’ll also believe he’s not playing when he doesn’t actually play.

He’s ruled out for Saturday already. It comes down to when he tested positive — which of course they won’t say — for the status of ND.

He was tested yesterday. They count the day of the test(which is ridiculous) so the 10th day would be Friday. However, the ACC also says a player has to be fever free for 1 day after completing the 10 day isolation. So he SHOULD be out for next weekend.

I understand being out this Saturday. I just think the sports world is looking around at each other wondering if he’s really going to be out for ND or if they’ll figure out a way for him not to be.

Pat Forde reporting his ten day window will be finished before the game but how Lawrence is doing will also have to be taken into consideration obviously.

That makes sense.  I was reading guidelines from some school, and just normal students the rule was to quarantine 10 days "after the start of symptoms".  Apparently, the viral load drops significantly @7-8 days and by day 10 you basically are no longer infectious (provided no fever).

So that policy is smart.  The Big Ten 21-day policy not so much.

I believe it's 10 days if you've been fever free for 24 hours, not 10 days and THEN another 24 hours with no fever.

And for all intents and purpose, testing positive is the same as being symptomatic.  It's about a 7-day window where you're shedding enough virus to infect someone.
