Alabama coach Nick Saban has COVID-19. Unless he doesn’t.
Three days ago, Saban announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus. ESPN now reports that he tested negative on Thursday and again on Friday.
Saban submitted a third sample on Saturday. If it returns negative, the positive from Wednesday will be regarded as a false positive under SEC guidelines. That would allow Saban to coach on Saturday night when No. 2 Alabama faces No. 3 Georgia.
Saban is asymptomatic, which further points to the possibility that he doesn’t have it.
