love to derail the season for a meaningless non con blowout
I am shocked that a liberty/notre dame/gonzaga type school is not taking it seriously and is trying to cover it up.
I take offense to that!

Ohio State Football Team Update
Coach Day, others test positive, team members will have PCR testing this afternoon and fly to Champaign Saturday morning
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University football team continues to prepare for its game Saturday against the University of Illinois, set for 12 p.m. (EST) in Champaign, Ill.The program completed another round of point of contact (POC) daily testing Friday morning. All team members along with Tier I coaches and support staff will undergo polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing this afternoon out of an abundance of caution to ensure that everyone on the trip is confirmed negative for the coronavirus. At this time the Department of Athletics can confirm an increased number of positive tests this week for the coronavirus. This is in contrast to testing throughout the season, when Ohio State had consistently recorded nearly 0% positivity since Aug. 11. The increased number does not reach the threshold for Ohio State to have to cancel the game this week, according to Big Ten Conference protocols.Head coach Ryan Day is one of the individuals who has tested positive. He is in isolation and will not travel to Illinois or coach the team this week. Assistant head coach/defensive line coach Larry Johnson will serve as interim head coach of the Buckeyes on Saturday.Because of the additional PCR testing taking place today, the team will not fly to Champaign this evening, but will instead fly to the game Saturday morning. The department has kept the University of Illinois and the Big Ten Conference aware of the developments.“I have spoken with Coach Day, and he is doing well physically,” Director of Athletics Gene Smith said. “I feel terrible for Coach and for the members of the program who have been diagnosed with a positive test. Coach Day and this team have been true leaders in handling things so well throughout this pandemic. Our team wants to play this game, and we’re going to do everything we can to help make this happen. All of the decisions on the welfare of our student-athletes and staff members will continue to be guided by our medical staff.”
Good job, Ryan Day.
Not cancelling/postponing the game because of the CFB Playoff is gross.
So is Day out 3 weeks now? Or did that requirement change from the beginning of the season? Or was that only for players?
It's only 10 days for coaches
He tested positive for the antigen test today. He now has to take the PCR test to be a "confirmed positive." The PCR takes two days to come back (or at least it typically does) so there's obviously not enough time to clear him before the game tomorrow. If the PCR comes back negative then he'll just end up missing the Illinois game.
Several players tested positive (antigen) Wednesday morning and then the PCRs came back negative today.
It's a total shit show. If you haven't noticed.
brb heading to Chicago again
thank you for including this very important and relevant pat on your own backs
Close to being a disaster for the big10. OSU needs to play the next 2 games or they’re ineligible for the Big10 title game
Per the release, we paused all team activities. I’ll hold out hope, but that sure doesn’t sound good for our chances.
7-0 OSU vs 11-0 Cincy/9-1 A&M will be interesting
Pants down spanking unless Fields doesn’t play.
not if OSU doesnt get in
I think that’s what he’s suggesting
We have differing definitions of “vs” then.
I think Struggler was struggling with that
So assuming OSU gets the rest of the games in eh?
vs as in the debate to get in if you have Cincy/A&M vs a 7-0 OSU
cmon Michigan lets do this
Dump, Texas a & m will never make a playoff in your lifetime. Step back
maybe I just want the best team in Ohio to make the CFP
the University of Cincinnati Bearcats
OSU goes even without Fields. Money talks.
Probably won’t matter. Teams aren’t playing multiple games after cancelling one for covid. 5-0 isn’t getting in ahead of undefeated B10 champ even if we’re eligible.
Games are ok. But everyone STAY THE FUCK AWAY THE NEXT TWO DAYS!!!!
Bama would be favored by -35
Them not canceling the game and awarding Pittsburgh a loss is lame. Just do it cowards
Cincy wouldnt have let the Hoosiers come back
So this makes a bit more sense now
That has nothing to do with what I said
I look forward to March when we're still trying to wrap up the football season
he just wants some more Fogo. Don’t blame him.
Time for Ann Arbor to follow suit
This is going to be wild
Wonder is this affects our game against wake December 12 at all.
Not an outbreak
Jesus no wonder Bateman peace'd out
Good to see we continue to operate safely!
Boats aren't such a good idea in the days of COVID
Hope none of the players or staff have any long-term effects from this lunacy
