Looks like Miss St/Georgia and Arkansas/LSU might get postponed.

Georgia/State would have to be moved to 12/12. With Georgia playing Missouri on 19th and State playing Auburn the same day.

The Arkansas/LSU game would really screw things up and at least one SEC game would probably get cancelled. Got to think that the SEC wants divisional games to take place and Florida/LSU gets cancelled.

The only way to make sure all games get played is to have Bama/LSU play this weekend and move Bama/Kentucky to 12/12. That would move the LSU/Arkansas game to 12/19, but I think it's to late for that to happen.

Better to post that in this thread:

Alabama v. LSU and Updated scheduling

Today, the LSU-AR & MS-GA games are still on. Monday was the deadline for rescheduling any games to this coming weekend.

Sam Pittman, Ed Orgeron weigh in on this weekend's matchup (247-AR)

I work in a healthcare field, skippy. HIPAA regulations can be broadly interpreted, and the penalties for infractions are significant. Better to be safe than sorry.


That's a typo on my part. I did it so I'll leave it.

I work in the health care field too - been there 20 years. I also worked in the legal field for 17. I tend to get pretty smug when I'm 100% correct and in this case I am 100% correct.

I agree that universities are in a strange place as a potential covered entity but giving aggregate numbers across an entire half a season, which is what we're talking about here, is in no way a violation and would never be construed as such. If there was one single ounce of concern on the part of the schools, every single university wouldn't be announcing the number of people they have in COVID protocol every week. Those, as you say, can pretty easily be tied to missing players and yet every school puts them out.

Really, though the numbers across a week or two are meaningless, but at this point in the season aggregate totals would tell a great deal about the effectiveness and reasonableness of the protocols in place.

I think Vandy/Missouri had already been postponed to 12/12, but that game can be pushed back a week.

Per Fauci, scientific evidence supports that it's safe to end a college athlete quarantine if the player is asymptomatic and tests negative on days 5, 6 & 7. But apparently the conferences chose to meet state & local quarantine policies for contact tracing.



That’s a good point and I assume the universities don’t want to get crucified by the media for even contemplating having common sense.

I think in 99.999999% of cases you're completely right ... but the optics and considerations around this pandemic are unique.

Our legal team is hyper-vigilant around HIPAA stuff, and that's been raised to 11 with COVID-19 issues, so I've been inundated with "what ifs" and "this might happens" for 11 months now. It's causing me to see problems where none exist.

Basically, I'm splitting frog hairs here, and should've just left well enough alone.

Covid is no more a HIPAA issue than an injury or the flu. They all would fall under HIPAA for an ordinary person, but presumably they have signed waivers to allow coaches to talk about their injuries and illnesses. When coaches say they can't say something about Covid because of HIPAA, it's a transparently BS excuse to avoid giving information. And yes, aggregate numbers like "we have had x number of players test positive this season" would not be HIPAA either way. But please, do go on believing whatever people tell you.

HIPAA mostly regulates written records, If a doctor has told a coach that it's not from a record, that it's a fact, the coach can tell you what he saw, or go to the trainer and ask questions about a health issue.

A lot of it is coach-speak, and naturally, coach-speak, Saban style. Coach Saban has always lived by the old adage that less is more when giving away company secrets. The thing is, he believes it is an advantage to say less. Depth chart, injuries, COVID, you name it. Regardless if it's real or not, and he could be right, as far as I know.

I think the bigger problem at work is what people think they are somehow entitled to know and like, RIGHT NOW. Like it's a birthright.

I can personally wait it out, but that's kinda my disposition anyway. And if it really gives us an advantage in the long run that the opponents or fans don't know what's going on, more power to coach Saban.

So are the reporters asked to keep their mouths shut about players that are missing from practice? I dont see much about that lately.

Interesting that AL.com is the source for JT Daniels starting this week for GA. Its not from any Ga sources.

And, Maryland is a big Covid mess.

Big problem would be betting. Obviously someone found out who’s out for Arkansas this week due to Covid. Spread went from -2.5 Arkansas to -2.5 LSU over night.

We should be able to figure this out due to process of elimination from photos, videos, and player interviews this week right?

Let's get at it!

I don't think reporters have any access to UA's football practices this season. UA is providing them with photos and a video of drills instead.

247Sports also reported it.

I would guess the moment Dabo told the world that Lawrence wouldn't be playing vs ND due to COVID, the Fighting Irish gave every second of their attention to the backup. I doubt coach Saban would have given the Irish that running start.
