BREAKING: FAU Football Tests Positive for COVID-19
Local Owl said96 out of approximately 30,000 students. 0.3 % . Can't freek out over those odds.Posted On: Sep 15th 2020, 4:22 PM
Agreed. Just hoping that it doesn't impact people too much due to contact tracing…
The results we are hearing about today were from Sunday's tests. The university found out the results from the tests Monday night. The decision to cancel traditional, contact practice came this morning.
The athletic department is currently conducting contact tracing and, as it is Tuesday, another round of testing. More information will be made available tomorrow.
Again, as of now, the plan is to play Georgia Southern on Saturday, provided that there is no greater influx of positive test results.
The team is keeping these names private, right?Posted On: Sep 15th 2020, 4:00 PM
Correct. But that does not meant that they will not release the names in the future, like what Georgia Southern did just hours before kickoff against Campbell. Moreover, if FAU plays on Saturday, we could see who is on the field and who stayed home.
But like Jack said, if a starter is out, obviously the wheels begin turning in your head.†

Depending on how many games are actually played this season. I will not worry about the results good or bad. I donít really expect them to be good. 2020 college football should just have a giant *†
