There is no official word yet, but CarolinaBlitz.com is reporting that Duke will postpone this week’s games against Clemson and Notre Dame due to - you guessed it - Covid, and presumably the Omicron variant that’s swept across the globe these last few weeks.
We have no idea what that means exactly, but the new ACC policy requires teams to play if seven players and at least one coach are not affected so presumably that means it hit the team fairly hard.
The good news, such as it is, is that compared to its nastier siblings, Omicron, while much more contagious, appears to be much more mild.
Still, it’s no fun to be sick and certainly not at the holidays. So all our best wishes to everyone in the Duke program and let’s hope this whole business ends soon.
