Fuck this. No reason they have to cancel, could have postponed.

What a waste of a season.

The NCAA pussed out. ESPN said they were told that they couldn’t commit to postponement because you start running into issues with graduations, holding off on jobs/NBA, etc. Complete bullshit.

The only thing I can think of is that they were told by health officials that this is likely to be an issue for many months.

The NBA is postponed so the draft shouldn’t matter and just give the higher seeds home court. It’s better than nothing

The logistics of that would be a nightmare.
Not enough of a nightmare to take a pause and find a way to make it happen.

It's a fucking dumb decision to flat outright cancel it. Nearly every coach is saying the same thing and they don't understand it either.

They could have waited until May. Zero reason they couldn't have.

Yeah, but it goes way beyond just a venue. Travel, lodging, graduation, jobs, the draft, so many factors that make it just a huge cluster.

There is jack shit going on at the select number of arenas and there would be plenty of travel and lodging. Who fucking cares about the graduation, they could walk in the summer or get their diplomas later. The Draft isn't happening for a long while and wouldn't have had anything to do.

It was a cluster, they could have figured it out. This was the stupidest and shittiest of all options.

I can't believe that CBS allowed the to cancel either. They would have loved the content in May.

What the fuck are people thinking this is and can be done here? I thought we were trying to flatten the curve in the next few weeks. Are people under the false impression that Coronavirus is something that is going to disappear?

Lol at holding off on jobs

‘So Mr./Mrs./Ms. Boss, turns out I can play in the NCAA Tourna...’
‘Get the fuck out of my office, see you when your run in the tournament is over. Good luck.’
