Ford worries about long-term COVID-19 effects on players: "It's a gamble you can't lose"

Former Clemson coach Danny Ford sat down with the media earlier this week and was asked if he would want to play a college football season in the face of COVID-19, or if he would preach caution. Ford preaches caution, simply because there are so many unknowns. Full Story »

It's easy to sit in the seat that coach Ford is in and speak about his worries, and he is right by saying that we don't know the lasting effects on the people that has contracted covid-19, but we can't stop living now bc of it. I mean I have to go out into the public where the rick of me being affected by the virus is much much greater than if I could just stay at home, but that is impossible. I sat in my heart doctors office for 2 hours before I was seen yesterday, and by the time I did see him I was very pisssed off bc I was exposed with more people leaving and more coming in, but I'm experiencing shortness of breath, so what were my choices, he wasn't about to make a house call. This pandemic causes change, and we will have to do the best that we can for ourselves while trying to wait for a vaccine to come...

Is college FB a necessity, no, not for the fans, but it is for those kids that has put in all the time during their young life to try and have a future in the NFL, and I do understand them feeling the need to play, and if they play, I will watch it, and hopefully the scientist will come up with a medication to reverse the negative effects that the virus can cause....

This sounds like about the most ignorant comment I’ve read. These are people’s kids man. The already had to redshirt Xavier Thomas so that’s an indicator that this thing is no joke. How did we get to this point where we’re saying it’s ok to risk your life for a football game

It is okay to risk your life doing something you love. People have died playing football before covid. You people are making this thing a way bigger deal than it is. Sure it is something to worry about and try not to spread but it isn't killing most of the people that get it. It isn't even making most people that get it sick.

As if it could get any bigger, it seem to be one of the easiest deadly viruses to get than we've had in awhile. I mean just in America, 5,460,429 have tested positive covid-19, and 171,012 have already died from covid-19, and pretty near everyone of them left loved ones behind. I am so glad that none of the 171,012 deaths was one of my closest family members. But I do text them everyday asking them to please protect themselves, and to not be the cause of the rest of us to suffer through the loss of one of them simply bc they refuse to pay attention to the warning and didn't wear a mask like the most of do trying to stay alive and see each other again while they were still breathing. From the six kids in my family of brothers and sisters, there is only 3 of us left, and I would hate to lose one of my two sister bc of covid-19, and I express that to them everyday how important that mask will be to help keep them safe regardless of who they are around, bc they really don't know how safe the people they come in contact with are... It is really simple, wear the da mn mask, it won't kill you, and it could be the one thing that saves your life and the life of your love ones. Please, for yourself, and for the people that you love, wear the mask, please!!!!

I’ll take your bait and give you the benefit of doubt that your not a troll. Please tell me what Is ignorant about this logic. The virus is dangerous, and could potentially have long term impacts on anyone who contracts it- no argument there. This holds true whether you are playing a sport or going to a party on campus. It is a generous assumption to say players will be as safe sitting out the season and being ‘out in the wild’ as they would be playing considering all the extra scrutiny and testing they will receive during a season that they would not otherwise receive.

*Sidenote- XT is not sitting out due to covid concerns. He’s out because he has already been sick and is way behind in conditioning doesn't want to play as anything but his best self in his final season.

It's hard to go back and forth with you guys on the internet and no I'm not a troll. Don't assume everyone that disagrees with you guys to be a troll or bot. I've been a Clemson fan since I was 8 years old and I'm 49 now. We can certainly agree to disagree. While he's behind in conditioning, the indicator was that this virus was really hard on him. I won't make assumption other than the fact that I know couple of kids who contracted who are athletes and they are really struggling to breath under the circumstances of football workouts. It feels like our decisions and opinion are so shaped by politics and before you think I'm a Democrat, I'm not. I just think we've lost our way when we're putting our kids in harms way. I'm a high school positions coach and I'm not sure if we're ready for this yet

I believe he is still going to suit up for the year and will likely play the 4 games allowed for a redshirt year. Similar track that Skalski took after his injury that impacted 2018 year.


He didn't have access to a gym or working out,

plus he had strep throat on top of it and lost more ground. It was a culmination of things.

and to a far greater degree than any college athlete is risking their lives in college football during Covid19.

Have you ever bothered to look at the actual hospitalization rate for healthy people under 40? They are literally FAR more likely to be hospitalized by a car wreck than to be hospitalized by Covid. This is true by like a factor of 10 or more.

You are right! A friend of mine's nephew who was a South Carolina football player died in his mid 30's as a result of steroids during the era that it was prevalent in colleges. I think Stve Courson (USC & Steelers) died of basically the same thing.

The"heart problems" associated with Covid are real, but they are also associated with flu and other viruses, and are more of a concern with those older patients who have severe problems with the virus. Some are just using it as a scare tactic much like they did regarding Hydroxychlorine by claiming it caused heart problems. It does, but extremely rare!

I watched a bunch of the DNC. Most all of it was like a fictional movie. A bunch of lies, I mean hardcore lies. Guys like Clinton, Obama, Sleepy Joe, dozens of them, simply and openly lying through their teeth to the American people. No regards whatsoever for honesty. Talking about dignity and integrity while blatantly lying and playing people for fools. Obama struck me as the biggest POS of all. I've never in my life witnessed a man so full of #### on national TV. Preying on gullible Americans in the name of a vote. What kind of human being is capable of such horrible behavior? But I digress....

Look, the virus was shamefully used as a political weapon by the Democratic party. It cannot be denied. Over and over. They'll do it until election day, when they lose, then it will all go away. Citing the number of deaths, over and over, as if we don't know the number, as if it was one man's fault. As if Joe could have actually saved lives, and how he'll make it go away, even though him and the party called Trump a racist and xenophobe for taking action.

Some people are actually falling for it, but do they really think the majority of American people forget exactly what happened? Deceitful, shameless, lie after lie. Using the virus and human life as a means to capture votes. Sickening.

Look, politicians do bad stuff and Trump has done his share in his life, but this open act of lies and deceit in the name of a vote - bad, bad people. Really just piece of crap people.

I love, respect and know that Coach Ford is a very intelligent, educated and shrewd man.
I've read a couple of his interviews and I feel Coach pretty strongly leans towards cancelling college football this season. However, if this was 20 years ago, I'm not so sure he would feel the same. No offense Danny.

He's worried about player's long-term health. How is that "open-ended fear"? The lack of evidence you mentioned goes both ways: there's none to support that it does cause long-term effects, and there's none to support that it doesn't. And that's all Coach was trying to say, that some amount of caution should be used because we don't have all the answers. It's a very grounded, conservative thing to say.

Man, I never thought I'd see the day that it became cool to hate on Danny Ford among Clemson fans.

If you are afraid of something, and there is no factual or scientific basis to be afraid of it... then that fear is open-ended. If you are not factoring in the rest of the known threats of the universe, and your perception is devoid of consideration of all the other variables in life, then you are engaging in open-ended fear. It's not based on anything specific, just the possibility.

There is infinite possibility of harm from an infinite amount of possibilities. I could be scared that cell phone towers will kill everyone after 40 years of exposure. I could be scared of dying in a car wreck. I could be scared of brain trauma from football? I could be scared of being assassinated for being a public figure. There's no specific reason to believe all that will likely happen to any individual, but it's possible.

Advocating for something that dramatically changes people's lives should only be done if there is a specific reason to do so. Not just because there is some unknown possibility of something bad. Again, familiarize yourself with the word "open-ended." When people start using open-ended fear to try and tell others what do do, they are dangerous and should be counter-acted.

And stop being so dramatic. Equating criticism to Danny Ford's consequential comments to "hating on" him is childish and inaccurate.

People are losing the ability to think critically and communicate effectively.

He is certainly entitled to his opinion, and long term effects of virus are a concern. I just don’t see how playing or not playing has any impact on whether they get the virus. His logic dots just aren’t connecting. The play vs no play outcome difference for players seems to favor playing if anything due to more testing, more medical oversight, and greater focus on personal responsibility to protect the team. It appears he has some unspoken motivation for his ‘concerns’ and push for no play...

I have a bit of a problem listening to Coach Ford speak about this virus with such concern for the players. I have a relative that played for Coach Ford in the 80's and many of those players (that are not already dead) are struggling with the long term effects of the "worries" that did not exist for them. May be a death bed conversion, but I am betting on it being that an old man needs to feel relevant.

Covid19 if a season is played doesn't exist right now either.

Actually, the evidence heavily suggests Covid is nowhere near as bad an anyone feared and that the normal versions of the flu are statistically far more likely to hospitalize a person in their 20's.

Being more afraid of things that are less dangerous is a delusional endeavor.

Are they right ? I don't know. Is Coach Ford right ? I don't know.

What I do believe is that football is a fairly dangerous sport. On any given play a player can suffer a serious injury that can affect them for life. The players accept that risk.

I just find it hard to justify the COVID stance with regard to cancelling football when the game itself is inherently dangerous, and always has been.

Again, I just go back to the players saying they feel safer playing than not playing.

I know most folks on this site love Danny but in reality is he any more relevant than Bo Schembechler, Woody Hayes or Bobby Bowden at this point? His time has passed but I feel like he wants to stay in the limelight. Comments like these really don't help the program, especially when it comes from someone with little to no medical knowledge. He lost some of my respect today.

The fact that he was a good coach and meant a lot to the Clemson program doesn't mean he should speak negatively to the decisions that are being made in the program today, especially when he has no iota of a clue what he is talking about. By doing this all he is doing is making people like you question what is being decided today. Whether it's right or wrong, it is the decision and he should support it. It's what he would have wanted in 1981.


We already know the effects football itself has on the body
