  • I have tested positive for Cove in 19 and my symptoms have been relatively mild.

  • While I'm following the protocol from Clemson in the A C.

  • C.

  • The only thing that hurts is missing an opportunity to be with my teammates this weekend and play the game I love.

  • I hate that I can't be there, but I will be watching from isolation pulling for our guys while I wait for the opportunity to rejoin the team.

  • God bless in Go tigers.

  • Stephen, I will start with you here.

  • What is your reaction to the positive diagnosis of the Cove in 19 test for Trevor Lawrence?

  • Well, the first order of business is to wish him nothing but the best of health.

  • And hopefully that he'll get back on the field.

  • And what have you?

  • That's number one?

  • Uh, that's what we wish for anybody that comes down with this virus.

  • Number two.

  • Um, I concerned about Clemson.

  • Not in the slightest.

  • Even without him, they should be Boston College number three.

  • Even if they were to lose, I don't think that they fall out of the top four, which means they'd still be right for a playoff spot number four.

  • We speak about the greatness of Trevor.

  • Lawrence will monitor this as it goes along.

  • We he's 31 1 is the start of this year's completing 70% of his passes.

  • He's got 17 touchdowns, two interception.

  • We know that he is to pervert.

  • You know the figure the prohibitive number one pick in the upcoming NFL draft?

  • He is that elite.

  • We understand that.

  • So if he does come back probably against Notre Dame, I'm not gonna be surprised by that at all.

  • You know, we'll watch for how he's playing and what have you to really, really gauge the significance of the impact of covert 19 him contracting that virus.

  • Having said all of that, the only thing you could say is what Max Kellerman, more so than anybody else here, has religiously been stating about the need to take this virus seriously about to treat it with the level of due diligence and seriousness that it deserves to understand that even though everybody is not passing away from it, you don't know what's gonna happen in each and every individual that contracts the virus, and you also know that it's not immunity and nobody is is immune to it.

  • I mean, the bottom line that can catch.

  • Oh, they could catch young.

  • You could catch black.

  • It could catch white.

  • It doesn't matter.

  • And so you pay attention to it.

  • You address it with the level of seriousness that it deserves.

  • And then all you can do from there is move on and move forward to the best of your ability.

  • Yeah, I echo your sentiment.

  • Um, I'll say that Trevor Lawrence was one of over 88,000 new diagnosed cases.

  • Yes, record high.

  • I thought it was 90.

  • 90,000 records last checked.

  • It was 88.

  • That's how that's how fast it's changing over 90,000 in yesterday.

  • He's one of over 90,000 on The reason is this has not been taken nearly seriously enough people we relate to Shut down We, you know, 15 going down to zero.

  • No, it was 15 going upto over 90,000 in a single day.

  • Millions and millions and millions of people.

  • And it is true.

  • The death rate from it has fallen precipitously because we understand much more about it now.

  • Still don't know a lot about it, but understand much more about it.

  • And so the treatments are better.

  • And you know, Andi, it's been more effective in terms of the way people have been treated.

  • Still, the lowest possible estimate is like one out of 400 would die from this.

  • So, like you would not get on an airplane if it was like, Yeah, you gotta I mean, of course it's It's likely he's going to get better and he's gonna be okay.

  • We don't know what the lingering effects will be, etcetera, but obviously our thoughts are with Trevor Lawrence.

  • I agree with Stephen A claims.

  • It will be fine provided he comes back pretty soon.

  • And the issue is not Trevor Lawrence or even his teammates, even though there does pose a risk for all these guys.

  • It's not about young, healthy people, primarily, although we've heard stories about people having lingering effects and we don't know what it'll be glaucoma and stuff like that later on, it's about the most vulnerable among us.

  • That's why he has to quarantine.

  • He's gotta he's gotta go be by himself so that the virus runs its course and it doesn't spread so that people with underlying conditions don't die There are already, um, intensive care units in hospitals that again once again are overloaded.

  • They they're filled to capacity.

  • Um, and people in and officials in various states are saying, Hey, we really need help right now because we're being overwhelmed.

  • That's what crushing the curve is about.

  • I wish Trevor Lawrence the best.

  • I hope no one else on the team has it.

  • So far, so good and otherwise.

  • I agree with Stephen A.

  • Smith.

  • Paul, what's your reaction?

  • Yeah, I think everyone has made very interesting and eloquent points.

  • I think in this case, there's Mawr at stake for Trevor than just getting back for the game.

  • I think in sports we just think about these guys is being Superman, and he has been Superman.

  • But just because he's a great athlete and the best player in college football doesn't mean that he is going to go through this is easily as other people.

  • So you know, we're watching What?

  • When was the onset?

  • We think it was Wednesday, Maybe, was Tuesday.

  • Why is that important?

  • Well, the A C C guidelines stipulate that he has toe quarantine for 10 days and then passed through other hoops So will he.

  • Won't he be eligible for the Notre Dame game?

  • It's only the biggest game of the year in college football.

  • It's at Notre Dame, and if he goes through all this and it is fine, then he will be able to play.

  • But there's so much more at stake.

  • As both of you have pointed out, this is the number one pick in the draft, I hope, and I know you.

  • All of you agree that he just doesn't come back to be a hero and to play football because he can, because this game is really not that important.

  • I know Clemson fans and Notre Dame fans were going, How can you say that?

  • Well, if Clemson were to lose this game and it's relatively close, then they still have a very, uh, smooth path to the college football playoff.

  • They win the rest of their games, which they will.

  • They play in the A C C championship game, perhaps against Notre Dame and when they're in, and that's all there is to it.

  • So I hope everyone is calm.

  • Hope the doctors are judicious and make the right decision.

  • But it is interesting.

  • Two weeks and two days ago we were sitting here talking about the other biggest name in college football, Nick Saban, testing positive.

  • It turned out that it was a false positive and everyone forgot about that.

  • But this is a case that I think everyone we'll be watching guys and Charlie and learning from, well, one of the things that comes to my mind and listen, you know, I'm a huge, huge fan of Davos.

  • Sweeney, uh, He's done a sensational job at Clemson, but he was facing some criticism earlier on before the season began because there were people, at least in the media, who were accusing him of not taking it seriously enough At that particular moment in time.

  • I don't know specifically what he said.

  • I don't recall specifically what he said that got people in an uproar about some of the things that he was saying.

  • But I do remember that he was taking some heat for that along those lines.

  • And so now that this has happened to his quarterback, clearly there's a level of seriousness that you have no doubt he's taking.

  • Now.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

I have tested positive for Cove in 19 and my symptoms have been relatively mild.
