cancels game at UNC due to quarantine. Several members of OL in quarantine after 3 positive cases in 3 positive cases in football players.


This just days after playing us...keep your fingers crossed.

Yep, we need to start being concerned about our guys. DL lines up 2 inches from OL. DL will be crucial vs Marshall.

Charlotte 49ers wouldn't have had a viable O-line due to COVID-19.
"We're extremely disappointed to have to cancel our game at UNC. While I know our team is heartbroken, due to the number of players in quarantine, we could not safely play,” said Charlotte 49ers AD Mike Hill.

I know wake coach said they were testing like every 7 days roughly twice a week. I would think it would have to be that at least.

Our OL practices right up against our DL regularly. If anyone on the DL test positive I'm betting it will impact more than just the D.

247 Sports posted it too: https://247sports.com/college/north-car ... 151603689/

Hopefully our guys did not get it from them. Fingers crossed here as well!

This is my worry (not about games, about safety). Individual schools can do everything right but still not know about carriers until it's too late and now any program they played comes into question.

Man, I hate to say this guys but I can't imagine players on our team will not be required to, at least, quarantine. I don't know the Sun Belt's policy but this does not bode well for our game against Marshall. I'm sure Marshall is talking to us about the situation as I type.

Only one positive test, so i think we'll be good.

UNCC player on Twitter insisting it’s a false positive.

Hard to think that we won't have some positives tests of our own considering their test was taken only 2 days after our game. Here is to hoping those players were not infected prior to playing us.

In his interview on WV Sportsline, Clark said they are testing 3 days a week. They tested on Sunday, Tuesday and will test again today.

What's the turn around on the testing service that App is using?

There is a branch of LabCorp in Boone, so I would guess they are using them. They have tests with a 48 hours turnaround.

The one thing I'm holding onto. If the player got a positive test close enough to the game, then in theory, the whole UNCC team would be affected by Contact Tracing. Since it's only 3 guys for UNCC affected by contact tracing, I'd hope that means it's an isolated incident.

I guess it just depends on what App's policies are
