UNC’s Mack Brown: “I expect us to play college football this fall”

Back on July 8, North Carolina football temporarily suspended offseason workouts due to a cluster of positive COVID-19 tests. At the time, UNC announced that of the 429 COVID-19 tests that were administered for student-athletes and staff, 37 tested positive.

On Tuesday this week, UNC coach Mack Brown addressed the media on a Zoom call — with several updates. First off, Brown said that of those involved with the football program that tested positive had “minor to no symptoms.”

According to Brown, all of those individuals are doing well now.

Despite the concerns with COVID-19, Brown believes that there will be a 2020 college football season.

Brown also stated that the ACC will develop its own medical protocols for dealing with the coronavirus; each team will, in turn, follow those guidelines. That’s the only way to allow the possibility of an out-of-conference matchup, per Brown.
