I mean if someone wants to go get sick, I think they have the right to do so. Not saying that’s what is happening, but if I were on a college team, I would certainly consider it, so as to not mess up my season.


Looks like Boomer was sick last time he was in the valley

I was there for that game. Even though Clemson was on probation, we were all chanting ACC Champs!!! ACC Champs!!! As we beat Maryland (the official ACC Champ that year).


Fun day in the Valley, although any win against MD was fun!

Sports talk radio is not journalism. Not related to it at all. It's barroom blather writ large, and about that informative. Ever known one of these guys to do any actual research?

I'm pretty sure you are a cheating, kid-touching liar who likes tween ####. How does it feel to be lionized unfairly. You really think institutions with endowments worth hundreds of millions are out there casually risking hundreds of peoples' lives and the negative exposure associated with that? You took one too many head hits moron.

Well, I'm coming from a completely different viewpoint & probably will be sincerely criticized for it! However, I'm no expert on the Coronavirus, but several experts have already been proven wrong on several fronts. I'm not trying to belittle the seriousness of the virus & am extremely saddened by the deaths associated with it. But from day one, I believed the COVID threat has been overplayed by the media and by the politicians on both the Left and Right.

Based on evidence I've read and experienced, college football players should be studied for potential "herd immunity" attributes. They are a relatively low threat group: they're young; they're healthy; they are working outdoors or in relatively clean facilities; they are being housed in clean environments; they're closely monitored by expert medical professionals; they're well-fed by expert nutritionists; their coaching staffs have set up what looks like a well-planned environment with: regular testing; immediately quarantining of both infected individuals & individuals that have been in contact with them. Last I heard, none of the Clemson players had health issues when & after being infected; and the majority have already come out of the quarantining process.

Frankly, if the college football players are supportive (and I believe they would be enthusiastically supportive participants), college football should be pushing strongly for a controlled exposure of all their players to COVID. Rather than accusing teams of a conspiracy to win at all costs, I (for one) would be enthusiastically applauding their efforts to move on for dealing with the COVID threat head-on! Of course, I suspect the media & politcians would totally unsupportive of any kind of initiative to attack problems.

I don't think that Dabo is doing this, but if I were a player, I would 100% be doing this of my own volition. Especially if I were fighting for playing time. It could be my edge when the 5 star stud player tests positive.

I do not believe there is a conspiracy, but I have to believe this thought has crossed many coaches' minds. It crossed mine before reading about it...

It clearly is better for everyone to get it now, especially if most don't even show symptoms.

Of course, we will all feel like idiots saying/thinking this if someone ends up intubated in the ICU.


Don't believe Boomer has figured out a simple fact:

Clemson is in a small minority of programs that are actually reporting the results of their COVID testing. I would imagine the numbers are similar across the country unless you go to some isolated place like Wyoming or Utah State...

say we win it all and no one gets sick on our team during the season if there even is a season..they will say its not fair because we got our players immunity; while other teams didnt and lost starters to being sick during the season

first there would have to be some indication that getting this gives you immunity. there's no hard evidence to demonstrate that now, with people who've had it showing no antibodies in their bloodstream months later.

If this crazy light accusation was true....the fact is that any one of those players could die from getting this virus. This thing does what it wants to people. So to have Boomer even think of something like this is saying the Clemson athletic program is killing its athletes. That could put us on the grounds of murder if not some sort of probation.....if this was purposely being done. Boomer owes Clemson an apology.


Hmm Boomer

Boomer isn't far off from the herd immunity thought


Posted: Jun 30, 2020 2:06 PM

although, most coaches are not so dumb as to suggest it even if they think it... there are a few outliers that just might suggest it to their players, but everybody better realize that herd immunity is not proven to prevent future diagnoses, and also that overall good/excellent health is not the be all end all to being asymptomatic or even a minimizer to symptoms. The real issue will always be the continual spread to others.
That herd immunity theory has gotten some players to think that they won't have future diagnoses if they get it now, but they are also not considering that long term effects on kidneys, pancreas, lungs, lymph nodes, etc are not known and could possibly lead to worse case scenarios in the short and long term... for all of those who consider Covid-19 to be not much more than and have the same type of effects as the flu, always remember that people do catch the flu every outbreak even though they have had it before and/or gotten flu shots. so, if Covid is nothing more than the flu, it's likely to behave like the flu but with greater detriment and fatalities...

Once again, that is just stupid. Yes, there are 85 players on scholarship at all the schools but did Boomer think about coaches, weight staff, trainers, managers, university faculty and staff, students, etc and etc. Over 1700 cases again in SC today so that can't be all football players. No Minor League baseball in the country this year. University Presidents need to step up and go ahead and say no football.

Well since college age, or younger, people are literally more likely to die from being hit by lightning than from Covid, it does make some sense to go ahead and get it now to avoid it messing up your season. The reality is that we are almost all going to get it at some point no matter how many masks we wear so why not try to manage how and when you get it to do the least damage to your health and career. Its far better for these players to get it in school surrounded by team physicians than to get it at home when they are on their own.
