    Absolutely brutal.

    I believe NCAA should grant waivers to all seniors to play another year. Gabe King and Cole Dahl deserved better.

      The MIAA has announced the suspension of all sports indefinitely.

          A few thoughts:

          1. My opinion is that all of these organizations are doing the right thing. The health and safety of everyone is the most important thing. Unlike the flu, there is currently no vaccine to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Thank God drastic measures are being taken to try to stop it.

          2. This is really sad for all of the seniors. They will live the rest of their lives feeling they have unfinished business and will live with a lot of what-ifs. Athletics teaches a lot of lessons and the lesson this week is that sometimes life is just brutal and not fair. I really feel for all of these kids, including those in other sports ... but especially the seniors.

          3. Give NW the national championship trophy. Defending national champion + #1 in final poll = 2-time defending national champion.

          4. Elyjah Clark of MSSU should be very grateful. The cancellation of the Central Region tournament means that he will not be booed in Maryville this weekend, since he would likely have broken the MIAA career 3-pointer record held by one of NW's current assistants.

            First off, prayers for a speedy recovery to all of those who have contracted the virus.

            Secondly, at least for D2 basketball remember that about 75-80% of the seniors’ season had already ended.

            Lastly, 64 men’s basketball teams made it to the end as co-national champions (or whatever the word is for 64 tied). I’ve already ordered my MSSU National Champs T-Shirt! Finally....

              The NCAA pulled the plug IMO because of potential litigation. If they didn't then they would be the ones on the hook for a law suit.

                You must have been expecting one hell of a regional from Clark. Based on the stats I saw on the MSSU site he's 54 away from tying Schneider. Maybe the site hasn't been updated though.

                    Northwest has already ordered the banner since they're ranked #1.

                      The site has not been updated. He was only 5 away from tying the record.

                        But who gets the D2 title since NW clearly would have taken the D1??

                          Missouri Southern obviously.

                            No titles this year, and anyone who tries to lay claim to one is a moron IMO. Take a look at what is going on around the world and recognize that a whole lot of people smarter than us about this kind of thing are looking for all kinds of help and commitment to slow the spread of a virus that has around a 3% kill rate.

                            We will all be back one of these days. But we have to accept the tough but wise decisions many are having to make.

                              Am I selfish for being glad this virus waited until after the super bowl to shut down sports? I may have never gotten to see the Chiefs win one.

                              If feels like an overreaction, but these institutions and businesses wouldn’t be willing to lose millions and millions of dollars if it wasn’t necessary. We’ll never truly know what the effect of shutting everything down was, because we won’t know how bad it could have gotten if they hadn’t. As much as it sucks, it’s good that we won’t know.
