and these cases are outliers, scattered geographically. Will be following this story for details. This worries me for those players, but now it makes me worry about college football in 2020. I was feeling pretty confident that we would be watching games this year. Speedy recovery to all involved.

Please no more bad news!

Right with the world soon pt of view. Then got to thinking all it will take is one player on any team to get it and they put themselves in 2 wk lockdown. This causes 3 teams to miss at least one game. And this is only from 1 team so imagine all the other teams. Not feeling good about it now

I've seen about 5 schools with returning football players testing positive for COVID-19 including 3 at Oklahoma State.

The article says as many as 5 players have Covid.

The response says at least 5 players have it.

That is a microcosm of journalism today with an insignificant detail.

Sorry, didn't see your post until I posted mine.

And, on top of that, I misquoted the guy. (But, hey, I'm an FSU fan who majored in math, not journalism, so I'm not supposed to be able to quote people correctly.)

Good thing theres almost no likelihood they will even have symptoms,.much less get sick. Might want to quarantine them until next year just to be safe though. That and keep them out of old folks homes.


Weren't our players eligible to report starting June 1?

Quick comment about the state of journalism

1. One sentence says "at least 5 players...." That means 5 or more.

2. Very next sentence says "up to 5 players...." That means 5 or less.

Therefore we can conclude from this well-educated journalist that EXACTLY 5 players tested positive. No way would a journalist give false information.

But can they count higher than 5 without doing box diagrams?
