Kirk Herbstreit, Greg McElroy test positive for COVID, plans for CFP changed


#With the #College #Football #Playoff semifinals just days away, ESPN analysts #Kirk #Herbstreit and #Greg #McElroy both announced #Tuesday they have tested positive for COVID-19.

#Both took to #Twitter to announce the positive tests and to say both appear to be feeling OK.

“Earlier this week I tested positive for COVID,” #Herbstreit tweeted. “Thankfully, I feel good and my family is okay, but going through protocols will keep me home. I will be working from home, #Jan. 1 on #College #GameDay (9 a.m.-12 p.m.) and later that day on the call for the #Sugar #Bowl with #Chris (#Fowler), #Maria (#Taylor) and #Tom (#Rinaldi). #Can’t wait for the rematch between #Clemson and #Ohio #State.”

I’m disappointed, but I feel good and hope to be back soon. #Appreciate y’all!”
