Georgia responds to Alabama football COVID-19 situation, ‘everybody better pay attention’

ATHENS — Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said his staff and players didn’t need any COVID-19 reminders, but Wednesday’s news out of Tuscaloosa was eye-opening.

“This certainly sends a message, everybody better pay attention,” McGarity told DawgNation on Wednesday night. “We hope everyone gets well.”

Alabama coach Nick Saban and Tide athletic director Greg Byrne announced they have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, leaving many to wonder what could possibly come next.

“It definitely is a wake-up call,” UGA leading receiver Kearis Jackson said. “We’ll just have to continue doing the right things here and wearing our masks.”
