    Very stupid. Read that this morning and thought to myself, “this is only the beginning of the stupidity for these things.” I’m sure we’ll see plenty of teams/schools do this (or have it done for them).
    There was a UND fan thinking that they should put up a banner for hockey. A Mav fan reminded them who beat UND head to head. These mythical projections are so ridiculous!

    • Ben had the right idea...just postpone it til things quiet down. I still think this is an overreaction based more on politics and fear of litigation than science. If <50 deaths warranted this drastic action why didn’t tens of thousands of deaths from Swine Flu/H1N1 Flu warrant these draconian actions 10-15 yrs ago? Not even WWII cancelled the NCAA BB Tourney

      • Ah, just let it rest. We can all survive until next season by missing a few games and championships. Definitely not worth the risk to the older parents, grandparents etc. I've decided to let go of my own greed of needing to be entertained on behalf of the health of others. There will be better days ahead!

            The entire point of all this is that we don't get to the point that 10,000+ people are needlessly dying. I don't know enough about epidemiology to criticize the response to H1N1 or swine flu, but when we see just how quickly this got out of hand in Italy, it makes sense that we'd be shutting down everything that isn't absolutely essential.

                  • Looks the AP didn't release final rankings, but the coaches did. Kansas at number 1 with all but 3 of the first place votes. Baylor moved up to 4 over Florida State and BYU stayed at 16 after their 1 point loss to Saint Mary's in the WCC semi-finals.

                    As for schools I feel sorry for, they are San Diego State, Dayton, and possibly Baylor as these teams likely won't have another chance at a national title like this year in a long time. Teams like Gonzaga, Florida State, and Kansas I expect to be back in the mix next year and Vitale has said that if Petrosev stays at Gonzaga they will be his pre-season #1.

                        Cutting the athletic department entirely?

                          Looks like just cutting Men's tennis and Cross Country. Had a hard time finding it among all the Corona Virus announcements everywhere.

                            FAMU will now sponsor just five men's sports; football, basketball, golf, track, and baseball. (side note: If there's a state to have a track team with no XC team, it's Florida)

                            • Little late but earlier in this thread, I posted that I thought Kent state basketball player Kalen Bennett was the first individual with autism to receive a D1 scholarship and play D1. Turns out he isn’t the first player with autism to play at a D1 program (But the first to receive a full ride). The first person with autism to play at a D1 program is Anthony Ianni (Grand Valley posters you may recognize the name). He started his college career playing at Grand valley st. then walked on at Michigan State for his final two years (2010-2012) and played under Tom Izzo. He was also teammates with NBA Player Draymond Green.

                              Since it was autism awareness day, I thought it would be a good day to share this fact!

                              • New Texas WBB coach is Vic Schaefer: his Mississippi State team ended UConn's 111-game win streak in 2017 Final Four in Dallas and he was Gary Blair's 'defensive coordinator' on 2010-11 A&M national champs.

                                I feel bad that every really good coach at MSU seems to end up somewhere up the chain. First Florida for football, now this. Too bad that they din't win it all after going to the finals twice.
