Steven Sipple reported that the Cornhuskers have a total of five positive cases on the football team and one staff member is positive. Nebraska conducted a total of 250 tests for the virus.

Nebraska and Oklahoma State are just the latest programs to get hit with coronavirus and have positive cases.

Luckily for both of them, it doesn’t sound like either situation is bad at all. Having only five positive cases is very manageable for Nebraska.

Oklahoma State only having one active case is even more manageable. Neither school sounds like they’re in trouble at all.

As I’ve said many times, the key is identifying players with the virus, isolating them, keeping them safe, allowing them to heal and letting them return once they’re healthy.

The last thing you want to do is rush back a sick player and let him infect the entire locker room.

I have no doubt OSU and Nebraska will take care of business and look out for their athletes. Now is not the time for missteps.
