Re: **NCAA Basketball Thread**

Adults making adult decisions doesn't shield the NCAA from backlash, unfortunately.

    It invalidates the game, IMO.

    I don't see how they can postpone. I guess they could cancel but I can't imagine the NCAA doing that.

    You canít ďpostponeĒ the tournament ffs

    Itís a weird situation. The NCAA is erring on the side of caution as they should be. Iím fine as long as there are games.

    I’d much rather this than cancel. Seems like this is going to get a lot worse for a while, so I really don’t think postponement would make a whole lot of sense.

    Squeaking sneakers, ball bouncing, grunting, F-bombs flying. Honestly, sign me up.

    Creighton fans not being able to see their best team in person in the NCAA makes me laugh. A lot.

    The NCAA isn't forcing anyone to be there. They simply put on the event. If a school decides they don't want their teams traveling or playing, that's a university level decision.

    Postponing till months later would mean plenty of players not playing because of the draft

    So you can’t postpone until May and have May madness? I mean I’m not saying that would help matters at all, but is some weird rule in place where they can’t postpone it that long or whatever?

    Jesus, how do they even practice? I had just read about it and then you posted so perfect timing. Thanks for the correction, I just skimmed it.

    There is no way they are postponing this unless it's only for a month or two and that doesn't seem realistic. Empty stadiums or nothing at all. The show goes on without a crowd is my not so hot take.

    No, no you can't. Early entries for the draft have to declare 60 days prior to the draft, which is April 26.

    So, even if you postpone it, you're likely going to have a tournament without the best players.

    Your pure, unadulterated hate for Creighton is one of my favorite things about the Tailgate.

    Its more of a recent thing. They lost two of their arguably better players for the last game or two of the regular season. Cam Mack was suspended for the last two for leaving the scene of an accident. Dachon Burke was suspended for violating team rules for the last game of the year. Mack was disciplined a couple of times this year.

    They just need some bodies for the (likely) last game of the year. And these two guys played in HS.

    Hoiberg will probably nearly gut this roster too. Last year only one scholarship player came back. this time it might be two or three but not many.

    I’m ready to hear some F bombs from coaches like Bruce Pearl lol. Will games even get that intense with zero crowd lol?

    I have a feeling these games will feel more like a scrimmage honesty.

    They're still playing for the same thing. Crowds make a difference, yes, but these guys aren't going to lose their competitive drive because there isn't a crowd.
