  • Teams testing positive now!

    I am having nightmares that we won’t get a tourney again.

    Virginia and Kansas and Duke...

    Don’t teams need 7 days consecutively of negative tests to be eligible for the tournament? That’s what I remember seeing . First games are in 6 days. So are they ineligible now?

    Maybe they'll shuffle the teams testing positive to play on Saturday, regardless of the s-curve? It isn't much but better than the alternative.

      I hope I am wrong, but I fear these cases are going to snowball before the Dance begins.

            This is definitely something worth keeping an eye on.

            I still think....hope....want it to work out.

              If the tourney doesn’t happen this year...
              The only hope we have for a better future is to come together and do everything we possibly can in order to achieve a sustainable existence. Everything else is folly of a broken foundation.

                      I think it will, in some shape or form. But obviously the odds of it being something close to normal are looking more dismal. I could see a scenario where the first weekend was removed, and the committee selected at large 16 teams. I don't think logistically it could be shifted a week back at this point. All I know is Gonzaga lost a golden opportunity last year, and this year is looking shakier. We'll see if the NCAA is more prepared with contingency plans than they appear to be.

                        The sky isn't falling,

                        The NCAA has contingencies in place.

                        There will be a tournament this year.

                          Seed the field. If your team can't show up due to covid you forfeit the game. Simple (and brutal) as that.

                            5 or more healthy players and any team is a go.

                              In these remaining conference tournaments, over half of the teams have returned home. I think we've seen the worst, but I obviously could be wrong.
