I don't think it is dramatic at all.
I think losing last years best player would be detrimental on many levels. If he has tested positive and is so sick he needs to announce it on social media. One would think he is in no shape to playin the FSU game. The GA state player is out for the year.
This can have serious complications to Harvin. Death is usually not a worry, but chronic issues can be extremely worrisome.
Treat the virus as a close to worst case scenario and hope for the best. Any other way would be naive. Like I said, death is not so much the issue as we have learned over the past 6 months. It is the permanent complications that are the big issue. Things that can lead to bigger issues. It is known to cause completely healthy people to have kidney damage, cardiovascular issues, and lung damage. This definitely causes more permanent issues than the common flu.
I "apologize" for the title, but this could end up meaning he is out for the year. Several players are sitting the year in fear of catching it, let alone once they catch it. Clemson's DE caught it early on, and has struggled to get back into shape since March.
Just wanted to share what I saw, and hope the GT community can rally behind our player. We need to pray and send good thoughts for an extremely intelligent and respectful young man. As we NEVER know someones battles. (We learned this recently with Chadwick Boseman) Give people benefit of the doubt on struggles.
So frustrating because so MANY just want to ignore this inconvenient truth (in bold from your well written post) - it won't be everyone, but it could be anyone.
