Per a tweet from the football account.

I know we're playing Campbell but that's insane.

33 is an awfully big hot, even if Campbell is the opponent. That brings Ga. Southern down to 52 scholarship players, 11 fewer than the Fightin' Camels will have.

Win anyway.

That's a lot of players to be down. I know it's Campbell, but gotta get win today of all days. If we can beat 2 Big12 teams, we must beat an FCS team.

Several reasons for such a long list of inactive players. Some of them were injury and academic suspensions, but for the ones that involved COVID, according to our players, anyone who tested positive for COVID has to quarantine for 2 weeks along with all their roommates who are also on the team because football players all live together. Coach Lunsford told media earlier in the week to expect some big starters to not play Saturday which means they were likely already well into their 14 day quarantine so some of them could be back by the FAU game. In a post game interview with Shai, he said that the team didn’t find out that the roommates of the COVID-positive players wouldn’t be playing until the team took the field for pregame warmups which is insane.

I see where Texas Tech squeaked by a pretty bad Houston Baptist team, 35-33. I think it's going to be that kind of year with covid disqualifications.

Well here is the answer. 2 academic suspensions and the bulk of the rest out for Covid contact tracing.

The guys that tested positive the first week of classes should've been ready to go for the first game.

That means 1 guy tested positive on game week and we end up with 30ish guys out for contact tracing?

WTH? Something is amiss.

And we still won. Great experience for our young back ups and a good way to learn that you play 4 quarters until the whistle for a reason. Hopefully next week we don’t lose folks and take advantage of a team who hasn’t played yet, with a new coach, without their starting qb .

Article says 1 tested positive game week. 5 total tested positive I'm assuming some of those within 14 days of the game.

Took a lot of balls to play that game under those circumstances. Congrats of getting the W in the end.

Fayetteville Observer says there were 33 players out in total between Ga. Southern and Campbell. 17 for Campbell and 16 for Ga. Southern.

http://www.espn.com/ncf/recap?gameId=401215298

ESPN says the same.

This is not correct. Count the players for yourself from the official release from our athletics department:



They must've misinterpreted that list because the first column is under the Campbell helmet and the second one under the GS one. But those are all GS players on that list and all but a few are scholarship guys.

Wow, that is interesting. Honestly, I had a suspicion that the information could be wrong, which is why I carefully worded that that the media outlets said so, not me.

That image you see is how GS Athletics is doing all their social media graphics this year, they just happened to have the Campbell helmet on it so it is misleading. I thought the same thing at first, then started realizing that Campbell had a lot of players with the same name as us and at the same position. Strange coincidence.

You have to remember how rare it is for the first team to practice with the fourth team. We had timing issues that got better as the game went on but it was clear these guys had not taken a lot of snaps together.

The way this year is, we could end up benefiting in the long run for having a game like this.
