Nick Saban’s daughter teases negative tests for COVID ahead of Georgia game

The past three days have been strange, and it may just gotten a bit stranger.

On Friday, Alabama’s Director of Sports Medicine Jeff Allen provided an update to the media stating that head coach Nick Saban had received a negative test for COVID-19 on Thursday. In order for the head coach to be on the sidelines for the Georgia game, he would need to receive two more negative tests.

Although there has been no official announcement, Alabama fans may have received their answer from Saban’s daughter Kristen Saban Setas on Twitter.

The first tweet was sent out shortly following the announcement of the head coach’s first negative test.

One hour later Setas sent out another tweet, but this time with two hearts.

Although fans may need to break out the tin foil hats for this one, the times of Setas’ tweets appear to align with the 24 hour period with which her father would be able to take his next PCR test.

If the speculation has some truth to it, then a third negative test tomorrow afternoon would mean that Saban will be leading the Crimson Tide out of the tunnel against Georgia.
