Multiple Cal Football Student-Athletes In COVID Protocol

November 4, 2021

BERKELEY, CA – Multiple Cal football student-athletes are in COVID protocol and will not be available to play in Saturday's game at Arizona. All student-athletes traveling to Tucson will be tested and cleared prior to departing the Bay Area. Everyone within the Cal football program is compliant with UC Berkeley's COVID-19 vaccine requirements, and 99 percent of football student-athletes are fully vaccinated. Due to state and federal student privacy laws, Cal Athletics is not able to comment on the personal health of individual student-athletes.

"Our primary concern is for the health of our student-athletes, and we continue to monitor the situation closely," Cal Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. "As we know, this pandemic is not over. We need to respect it and understand that it can affect much of what we do every day. Even with 99 percent of our football student-athletes fully vaccinated, we have seen that breakthrough cases are still possible."

Uh oh...any scuttlebutt on who we might be missing? Or scratch that...maybe we don't want AZ to know?

In unrelated news, Aaron Rogers gave a pep talk to the team in the locker room a few days ago.

In the Science and Religion section, deniers of the woofing gods (like myself) are now eating crow. Tastes good with a little Sriracha.

Lets hope the entire offensive line is not out again.they should have left for Arizona. An astute reporter might meet the plane and see who is not there. Kiss the season good bye. I would go all in for basketball..

Lets hope all the offensive linemen dont live in the same house. The debut of the back up qb? Inquiring minds want to know.
Go Bears!

99% of team is vaccinated. Are we still quarantining exposures with no symptoms even amongst the vaccinated? CDC doesn't require that.

Doesn't this guy follow the news?

Outside: Two masks (one an N-95) should be fine!

Inside: Three masks, a face shield, social distancing and one of those hand tools that open doors w/o actually having to touch the door knob.

There's a reason I haven't caught COVID. And I'm our family's designated shopper!

Their board says as many as 50 Cal players may be out. Why go?

It sounds like vaccinated players tested positive to me. As far as I can read the protocols vaccinated players don't need to quarantine just based on exposure.

Maybe 50 people need to get tested, due to proximity?

I don't even understand how we could have 50 people out. That's an absurd amount of breakthrough cases if 99% of the team is vaccinated. Are players required to be completely isolated for X days just by virtue of exposure even when vaccinated?

Agree, this doesn't make sense. If 99% of players are vax'ed and you have to test positive to be out when vax'ed, number has to be lower. Maybe 5-10 if there was a mass exposure.

Maybe it's 50ish exposed and doesn't mean they'll be out. *shrugs*

The Babylon Bee forced the New York Times to admit that it was a satirical site by threatening legal action.
The New York Times is a publication that defames satirical sites like the Babylon Bee. The New York Times also wins Pulitzer Prizes for fake Russia collusion stories.

Whatever number of Cal players you think is going to miss the game this weekend, take that number, add 3, divide by 2, and then add the number of years you've been a Cal fan. That's how many players will actually miss the game on Saturday.

Now that you know, you won't have to let it ruin your weekend.

Holy cow! MSNBC and Fox News used this defense, too. Lol. Our media is such a sham. Still, Babylon can't hold a candle to the Onion

I used your formula... and came up with exactly FIFTY (50). Maybe that's where that David Kelly on Twitter got that number?!?



Also, a note to the aforementioned Kelly: effect/affect. Did you graduate from U of A with an English degree?

Ok. Just did the math. Sixty-nine players will miss the game. Now that I know I won't have to let it ruin my weekend. Much thanks!

Wonder if Draft Kings knows something the reporters don't. Someone on Twitter noted that the game has been removed from their website. https://sportsbook.draftkings.com/leagues/football/88670775?category=game-lines&subcategory=game
