It’s not known at this time what sports the six athletes participated in.

Well, this is the nightmare scenario. This is the scenario college football fans have worried about ever since athletes started coming back.

What will happen if one team gets absolutely hammered by coronavirus? Well, Houston shut the whole thing down when six players tested positive.

Will more programs follow this example? It’s certainly possible. If an outbreak hammers an individual team, I think you’re going to see them pack it in.

The good news for Houston is that we’re still more than two months away from the season starting. That should mean there’s plenty of time to fix this situation and let the players heal.

Let’s hope the Cougars are capable of putting a lid on this situation and getting it figured out sooner than later. If not, their football season could be in major trouble.
