It is a news site posting a late story for clicks in a way meant to hurt LSU. Going there is no different than if the NYT offered a hot take on this "breaking news" just now.


SO yes don't click the link.

CNN really on top of this story:

quote:

“LSU's head football coach has revealed that "most" of his team has already had Covid-19, ahead of the Southeastern Conference's debut this weekend.”

I think the real takeaway from what CEO said is being missed here, I put it in bold below for anyone who may have missed it not for personal inadequacies but because of the immediate and loud background noise that was caused by this quote:
quote:

Coach O - “MOST” of LSU players have had Covid


It is past tense. There is no crisis. PAST TENSE.

I myself speculated that the coaches should be hoping for false positives due to the fact that players are exempt from quarantine for 90 days following negative tests after the 14 quarantine period.

Which would mean if that past tense refers to, let's say for example, 10 days ago... then players are leaving quarantine on the 19th, have 3 days of acclimitazation, and are not going to be re-entering (assuming asymptomatic through all of this) until, at worst, the frigging SEC Championship game.

If all those players HAD the virus and were asymptomatic, this is great news. Means we won't be losing them due to quarantine for contact with teammates, opponents, hotel staff, plane pilots, servers at restaurants, coaches or anyone else you can think of that tests positive later until after the SEC Champ game (or thereabouts).

ETA: it may, or may not, be a coincidence that this week is the absolutely perfect timing for such things coming to light and to have players coming out of quarantine. It's just enough time to prepare for game 1 (with the acclimatization/post-testing periods) AND be exempt from quarantine through the last game on Dec 5th. It perfectly bookends the regular season.

Lol. Go ahead and compare anyone to CNN, the news site that has had to apologize for more lies than any other news organization. Their sources are always anonymous or another left wing news agency.

LSU opens their season with the rest of their conference on Saturday facing off against Mississippi State.


The way she phrases this makes it seem like LSU plays on Saturday.

How hard is it to verify this before publishing it in a national media outlet?

There’s no reason for O to answer the question like that. He really doesn’t have to answer it at all. This isn’t the first time O has talked himself into headlines and it probably won’t be the last.

And what’s the hospitalization rate? % a symptomatic?

I assume first is probably nil and second is probably high considering players are OPTING BACK IN that had originally opted out.

CNN headline:

quote:

LSU's head football coach reveals 'most' of his team has had Covid-19


What Coach O said:

quote:

I think most of uh ... not all of our players but most of our players have caught it, so I think that hopefully they don't catch it again and hopefully they're not out for games,"


Unless you're retarded and suck with verb tense, it's entirely correct.

This summer has really highlighted how Coach O is not political savvy at all. He really should be leaning on Scott Woodward on advice how to navigate through this bs.

Fake news

the whole "fake news" thing is so weird. Orgeron DID say this, you understand that right? An event doesnt go away just because it upsets you. And heres how they frame it...

LSU's head football coach reveals 'most' of his team has had Covid-19

Ed Orgeron started his news conference Tuesday by confirming that three or four of the team's 105 players are currently sidelined with the virus, but overall the reigning national championship team is "very healthy".

so its run through the team and we're ok.

3 or 4 sidelined but "very healthy" overall.

This is not even a negative story.

Not clicking that link but as with most things in this cancel culture of today if you just wait and give it a few days this will pass and no one will care anymore.
