Florida AD Scott Stricklin reveals he tested positive for COVID-19 last month
If you were unaware, all 14 Southeastern Conference athletic directors met at the league’s headquarters in Birmingham this week to discuss the upcoming college football season.
While what exactly was discussed at that meeting remains behind closed doors, the result of the leadership in the SEC getting together has been more a more transparent message being conveyed from the league’s leaders.
Case in point, during a Tuesday teleconference, Florida AD Scott Stricklin revealed that the Swamp will likely only allow 15,000-20,000 fans in the stadium on Saturday’s this football season, with 25,000 being the high-end figure.
Stricklin then went a step further in revealing the reality of the coronavirus spread in the state of Florida and announced he tested positive for COVID-19 last month. The good news is he did not need to be hospitalized and his symptoms were mild, he said. He quarantined for 10 days after testing positive.
During that same call, the Florida AD noted that the annual matchup with Georgia slated to be played in Jacksonville remains on and there has not been any discussion regarding moving the annual game out of Jacksonville, at this point.
