If you read through the comments on that tweet Memphis fans are saying that their beat writers are denying it.

They kind of have to. The implications of this could damage their season, so until they have to admit it, they will deny it.

Seems like ArkSt would be in trouble as well if thats true. Since I havent heard of any Covid issues there either---I have to think this report may be erroneous.

Jordan is the Daily Memphian beat writer. And Pesik is right. Other Memphis sportswriters say it isn't true.

I would be surprised if this is accurate. We are testing 3 times a week. All was clear before and after the ASU game (other than the 3 guys held our for contact tracing).

Memphis Commercial Appeal:
The Tigers have at least 20 people within the program who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in a 10-day isolation period, according to the source.
The source also said that Memphis has "at least another 20" people in quarantine due to contract tracing. Most of the players who either tested positive for COVID-19 or are in quarantine are on the defensive side of the ball, the source said.

40 people!

So the Commercial Appeal has sourced the Covid report from INSIDE the Memphis program. Thats a much more credible report. If true---I dont see any way that game gets played as scheduled. Your talking about 40 players being effected.

You're also talking about the team not being able to practice at all.

I hope that “party bus” was worth it.

Who celebrates beating Arkansas State like that. Call me the party bus when we beat an Alabama or a Clemson.

So, what was up with the Memphis beat writers all (erroneously) saying the story was not true?

Well, Memphis can no longer say "Arkansas State isn't our rival!" Obviously, last Saturday's win was worthy of a huge celebration!

If the party bus rumor is true, then:

A - Those players were pretty selfish and irresponsible to put their team at risk (although I understand they are college kids and I can't say I would have been any brighter at that age)
B - Ryan Silverfield needs to keep better control of his program
