Not surprising. However, what is surprising (or is it?) that their QB Zac Thomas chooses to say this:


I get it that these guys want to play, but how is playing other teams around the country make them safe? Simply put... it DOESN'T. They may be safe in their clubhouse, but all it takes is one person to infect a large group of people. And to make comments downplaying this from a representative and leader of your team is careless.
The more people openly downplay this, the less people take precautions and make this thing go on even longer.

I don't disagree and first and foremost they are STUDENT-Athletes with student being the primary mission of all colleges and universities. Student-Athletes do not need to be more separated from the normal everyday students than they already are. If colleges and universities cannot facilitate in person-on campus learning.......sports need to wait. IMO we are starting to see just how self-entitled and self-important some of the amateur student-athletes feel about themselves.

The other side of this is that the others students are wondering why they aren't getting the safety that the student athletes are apparently getting since he claims they are "safer". Everyone should be protected in the most effective ways possible- not just the student athletes.
I'm sure a lot of it is that the athletes aren't being exposed to as many people. Therefore, that means that the other students ARE being exposed to more people, therefore putting them more at risk of the virus. Even if the school is doing everything humanly possible, comments like the one he made are not smart.
Lets not forget that people can spread this without symptoms. Remember we are talking about college students- someone is bound to screw up. All it takes is 1 person to screw up and get infected and now all of a sudden things will get real very quickly.

Agree 100% with that point of view.

That was pretty clever and very funny, particularly the AAC bit.

App State negotiated home and home series with Marshall today

Could it have been JMU?

If you all were FBS I can almost guarantee we'd do a home and home series with you. We've got one with Liberty.
