Just a week after reporting that they had two players test positive for COVID-19, Clemson reported on Friday that 23 of their players have tested positive.

That means players must have come into contact with the virus since reporting to school.

This would be devastating if it was a nursing home, but the fact that it's young and healthy people they should have a very favorable outcome.

Some will look at this as a bad thing, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. If players get and recover before the season starts then it would in theory mean they were less likely to be affected by an outbreak during the season.
