Saban, Alabama and SEC play with their own set of rules re: Covid! WTF?

This much we know:

Saban popped positive for Covid on Wednesday

#2 Bama plays a HUGE game vs. #3 Georgia on Saturday

Last two times they played, UGA had big leads until Saban coached circles around Smart in the 4th Qtr and Bama snuck out with two last second wins.

So like any other coach with a positive Covid Test, Saban should be out for 14 days and in quarantine, right?

NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS..this is SEC Country and the CFB Nat'l Championship is at stake! Was just watching ESPNU, and they were laughing about the amount of pressure on the Mobile, AL testing lab today. Supposedly Saban has had two negative tests the last two days (I do not believe this for one second), and if he has a 3rd negative test today, he can coach tonight!

Anyone wanna bet that his test will be "negative"?

You all know my stance on Covid. I knew the SEC would not swallow fear porn and would play CFB this fall. I have said all along that many other health issues pose more risk to CFB players than Covid. But to let a 68 year old coach who had Covid on Wednesday coach on Saturday, just because the CFB Title is at stake is downright ludicrous.
