Ross Dellenger with Sports Illustrated is reporting that at least 30 LSU Football players have been quarantined after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The report says that a portion of the players got infected at Tigerland near LSU's campus.
quote:

No LSU athlete or staff member has required hospitalization, and very few have experienced effects beyond mild symptoms. Officials are thankful that athletes were on campus, where the school has quick accessibility to testing and results.

A portion of LSU’s football players are quarantined after frequenting a string of nightclubs near the school’s campus called Tigerland. On Friday, the Louisiana Department of Health announced that more than 100 Tigerland bar-goers have tested positive for the virus and warned those who have frequented the establishments to quarantine for at least 14 days. Mullenix is in constant contact with the Louisiana Department of Health, showing health officials team trends, a process that helped reveal the Tigerland bar outbreak. Read more.

The average age of death with COVID-19 is higher than the actual average age of death! Also, don’t let the Governor quarantine ur arse in a nursing home...these politicians are sick and not bc they have COVID.

People.... Seriously. This virus is no more dangerous than the common cold or the mild flu... My mother in law had it and had a slight fever and had cold symptoms... quit overreacting! It will go away after the election when Trump wins. They will move on to something else.

That's because she only caught a mild strain. Catch a stronger strain and see what happens. I hate when idiots come on here talking about "Oh I had it's nothing serious". Get frick out of here with that shite. There are 30 different strains of this virus.

Hey planotiger, so let's say 121,000 died from Covid-19. What about the 326,879,000 Americans who are still living? Do we all have to listen to you alarmists? For how long? What happened to my rights? What about businesses? What about jobs?

The media are directly responsible for this . Everything was going well then you promoted ( and celebrated) the Protest/ looting/ riots/ anarchy and ignored the Virus like it never occurred. So these young people figured if it alright to protest lets party. Now you can’t figure out why. You hypocritical excuses for journalists.

Now imagine this happening in regular season. Keep fooling yourself, there is no school that is prepared for this. Fans or no fans, there will be no football till we have a vaccine.

Keep waiting for that vaccine. Let me know how that goes.

So we could actually have zero test positive, just 30 who went to bars that had people test positive. Very misleading title to the article

Blaming the media is another way of ignoring ignorance. If at this point you don’t know what you should and should not do, then the problem you have is yourself. Media didn’t tell you to go out and take risk. Haha the media.

That headline is wrong. The article did not say 30 players tested positive.

The media praised the protesters ( rioters, looters and anarchist) and never mentioned that this could result in a COVID-19 uptick. So young people figured it was alright to congregate. The media is so hypocritical allowing this to happen then when it happens stays silent on its reasons.

Yep definitely the media's fault. It has nothing to do with players hanging out at Tigerland during a pandemic.

Who cares about Corona? I would rather have Corona than the common cold. At least with Corona, I know I won't have any symptoms. The common cold can put you at home for a couple of days.

I don't know what you're profession is but in some cases having Corona has put people out of their job. Ponder that for a moment.

This is actually a good thing to get it now while they are on campus and not at home around older relatives. College kids are not gonna stay at home all day if they are either in their hometown or back in the college town. Plus it probably will help out when the fall rolls around if most have already had it.

I had it and then tested negative for antibodies 45 days later. Good idea if that worked.

Mandatory no bar rule would make sense. You would think.
