    To be fair, I wouldn't past them for a money grab. Or a money "save".

    I mean, The Bachelor is a thing on TV.

    Are all of the vasectomies cancelled?

    Sounds like they are meeting today and will announce something tomorrow. I think they will say it is suspended but they will still select teams.

    There are some schools that still want to have it from the sounds of things. Heard Goodman on the radio and he said he polled about 90 coaches and it was something like 50 to 40 in favor of cancelling.

    I'm personally done with basketball this year. I don't want to be reminded of the pain.

    Coaches may want it but wonder how University Presidents & Athletic Directors feel about it?

    With Duke and Kansas pulling out, there is no chance it doesn't get cancelled. Considering the Duke leader that made the decision is on the board for the NCAA, he likely knows the decision already.

    100% agree. Duke and KU wouldn't pull out of the tournament unless they already know something that just hasn't been made official yet.

    Well, technically they didn't pull out. The AD just suspended all athletic teams events and travel for now. To me it sounds like what is going to happen is NCAA will suspend tournament but still have selection of teams just in case circumstances change.

    A friend said they are talking postponement. Coaches say they could play it as late as May

    How would that work with the various underclassman draft rules?

    Plus how far would you postpone it? I mean if you postpone it 2 to 3 weeks, you're getting close to finals and draft workouts.

    The burning question is do the KU players have to give some of the shoe money back?

    Actually, this is the right decision.

    My guess is they would make exceptions for this year.

    Only if all of the vasectomy appointments are cancelled.

    Then I assume they knew these things:

    -Exactly who and how many are infected by it and where, and that those people are quarantined, and the public can know who and where specifically to stay away from.

    -How major events are supposed to handle the virus to keep people from spreading it person to person.

    If they don't know these exact things, they don't know enough including what a whole society will do.

    Yeah good question. I think April would be the latest you could reasonably go. If you don't play it all though, what was the point of the last 4 months?

    If the tournament is not played ...the NCAA will be bankrupt since the MBB tournament pays for basically all the NCAA operations for the year. I doubt CBS TNT have to play them if the games are not played.

    I think the payment is over $1 billion per year!

    Allen Iverson would like to answer your question - "practice, 4 months of practice, we talking practice".
