Earlier in the week, Florida Athletics Director Scott Stricklin said 21 total football players tested positive for the Kovid-19, including 18 scholarship players and three walk-ons.

“When you add in those who have been through contact tracing as a result of those positivity in addition to a handful of players on the non-Kovid injury list, it gives the Gators fewer than 50 scholarship players currently available,” Stalin he said.

Following the announcement of new positive tests, the university halted football team activities. Earlier, Mullen was advocating for increasing the fan presence in the team’s home games.

“I know that our governor (Gov. Ron DeSantis) has passed this rule, so of course, hopefully, the UF administration decides to pack us a swamp against LSU – 100% – because that crowd is certain. Appearance was a factor of the game, ”Mullen said after the team’s loss to Texas A&M on Saturday, October 10 in College Station, Texas.

Other schools have also clashed with the Kovid-19 on their football teams. The University of Notre Dame announced in September that 18 players tested positive for the virus, something head coach Brian Kelly said at the time “spreading like wildfire.”
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron revealed in September that “most” of his team already had a Kovid-19.
