    I hope I haven't just jinxed this game.
    Also, to say Joe Sunderman is both a member of the XU HOF, and a former XU standout...seems a little redundant.
    Unless we have people in the HOF who weren't standouts?

    So is Jones a go? They were saying on Butler Hoops he was out due to Covid protocols. I haven't read it anywhere else.

    My reliable inside source tells me he has been seen in the cafeteria with the normal student population. Hopefully that means he can play.

    I do not think he will play but he made the trip. Pretty sure he was the one who tested positive. I know itís been awhile and I am sure he is covid free, but there are protocols that he has to complete and I do not think that has all been done. Most likely misses this one and then will be back next game.

    Let us hope the “next game” isn’t another 3 weeks down the road. I’m glad we got a lot of games in early on the front end. This just FEELS crazy!

    What sort of protocol would allow for someone who tested positive to go on a team bus to Indy?

    He is free of symptoms and negative on test. Similar to when Odom was covid free but not cleared. Think testing of the heart and getting all of those results. I think there is a number of days, maybe 21 from test or symptoms to test the heart function with some programs. So he doesnít have covid but not yet medically cleared to play. I think each college program uses different protocols. I know my son was well clear of you covid but they wouldnít even let him return to practice until the heart test gave the all clear.

    xavierj summarizes this well... for those curious what types of steps are used for an athlete to return to sports, here are some resources used.

    Cardiac considerations for college student athletes

    Guidance for health professionals, athletic programs, coaches, parents, and athletes and click the tab that says “BJSM Infographic Graduated Return to Play”

    As you can see the timeline to return to competition varies based on severity of illness and if there was any evidence of cardiac involvement. For the student athletes I am involved with we utilize a 17 day minimum timeline for all covid positive athletes to err on the side of caution. Mostly because some athletes have downplayed symptoms to try and return to play sooner.
