Strep throat sidelines Long

While offensive lines in the ACC have had a hell of a time stopping UVA defensive end Chris Long, it appears he's met his match: strep throat. is reporting that Long left practice Monday because he felt so bad, and quotes coach Al Groh saying he's taking a "wait and see" approach as to whether Long will be available for Saturday's game against Virginia Tech. Yikes! Anybody know any good strep throat cures?


With oral antibiotics such as penicillin, amoxicillin, azithromycin, clarithromycin, clarithromycin, clindamycin or a brand of cephalosporin, a person should start feeling much better in 24 to 48 hours. You would think UVA knows this.

What - no update yet? Hey - the game is only three days away. What's the man's temperature? Can I send him some chicken soup?

That's it! Let's give everybody antibiotics for everything. Then there's Ritalin, Prozac, Zoloft, and all of the other designer drugs that cause fainting, death, or a new hand growing out of your forehead. More than half of America is driving around doped up on this garbage. I'd rather see the Marlboro Man on TV than another ad for ED or anything else. Let's all die together gloriously with a cigar and a drink in hand!
