Not that I hate Lynch coming back, but word is we have a huge stud kicker coming in next year.  Seems like a pretty easy position to step right into provided you don't crap yourself.

True freshman kicker? Hardest of passes. That position might be the biggest jump from high school to college. The best QB recruits get to play against stud defenders and routinely get challenged, is the challenge greater in college, of course. High school kicking is completely different than college kicking. High school kids kick field goals off a tee, high school goal posts are 5 feet narrower, and most kids trying to block kicks in high school are 5'8" linebackers who don't normally see the field. Kickers absolutely need a year of practice before setting real action.

It's important to remember that P5 college football is an intense job with extremely weak benefits and not just something kids do for fun with their pals. I think KK knows this?

I meant more the other sports.

Hey starting football player for the Kansas State wildcats. Do you want to stay in Manhattan for another year making out with hot chicks and being treated like a god or do you want to go back to your hometown and sell insurance?

According to Saban himself on gameday he didn't have a false positive, it was an actual positive but he's had three negative tests; Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, since testing positive.

The first test was wrong.  No way you're positive and then negative the next day.  I didn't see anything about him feeling ill.

The details of how he was tested is pretty interesting. It's also pretty clear they don't go to these lengths with players.

False positives are pretty rare but I don't know how he would know either way. I can't imagine most people get tested daily immediately after a positive so not sure how long people will test positive for.

I thought if you test positive you go into quarantine for 14 days.  So how does that fit in?

Obviously that can change with multiple negative tests

You definitely have a misunderstanding of how college is for a lot of these guys. Playing football is really hard. The dudes I knew when I was in college would give anything to sleep in and occasionally skip class to play playstation.

maybe the B10 was the smartest by not including any bye weeks. the players get no time off until the season is over
