SB Nation reports that eight sick Boston College players are confirmed to have E. coli, and that there are an additional two players on the roster also suffering from “stomach issues.” Unsurprisingly, today’s practice was cancelled.

Chipotle is currently under siege from a nationwide E. coli outbreak that they have been unable to find the source of or halt, which is sending the company’s stock price tumbling.

Boston College’s next game is against #15 Providence on Wednesday night, though it remains to be seen how many players will be well enough to participate. At 3-5 and with their last game a loss at home to recent D1 entrants UMass Lowell, Boston College’s season so far is just about as gross as Chipotle’s diarrhea burritos.
