Re: CBI Cancelled

Golden State Warriors to play home games without spectators for the foreseeable future. Tick-tock on The Dance doing same. If it gets to that extent, NCAA should flip all the sites to historic venues. Host games at Palestra, Hinkle, KC Municipal Auditorium, Rose Hill, etc. Final 4 at Palestra. They...

A week ago Chicago St was an inside joke for aborting a roadtrip.

I'll give it 1 hour before this is a no-spectator tournament. At least the ESPN 30 for 30 should be fun.

Re: CBI Cancelled

It would help underdogs if NCAA games are played with spectators. As the pressure mounts down the stretch, those crowds help push the underdog over the hump (ex. Boise crowd in Hampton-Iowa St).

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

USC (+UCLA/SU/Cal/UW) already broke off Oregon/OSU/Wazzu (and those pesky Vandals) 60 years ago. USC wanted the first national conference with Notre Dame and Army/Navy joining. None of the three bit. It took a few years before the CA4 acquiesced on UO/OSU/Wazzu and several more years before playing ...

Re: NCAA Tournament Thread

The Governor of Ohio asking for something is a little different from the average Joe asking for something, so it'll be interesting if the NCAA falls in line. MAC Tournament starts Thursday. MAC bows down to Governor. Favors NIU, who already plays in spectatorless venues. https://pbs.twimg.com/media...

Next board meeting is Thursday where they'll likely approve Par-A-Dice. Target to launch is before March 17. Hollywood (Joliet/Aurora), Grand Victoria (Elgin), Argosy (Alton), & Rivers (Des Plaines) have temporary permits but I believe only Des Plaines is taking bets.

For bracketing reasons, a team's seed can be flipped. So a true 13 seed could be bumped up or down to facilitate a bracketing consideration.
