    I wonder if conference tournaments will follow suit starting tomorrow. The Big East Tournament at MSG in particular (and I guess by extension the A-10 Tournament at Barclays).

    SEC Tournament to play tonight with fans, rest of the week to be determined.

    What would happen if one of the players contracted the virus: Would they quarantine the entire team?

    This more or less happened with Arsenal in the Premier League. No one tested positive but like half the team was in contact with someone that did. All those players had to quarantine and their game yesterday was postponed.

    Sonofa.

    (selfish rant) I knew it was too good to be true. Finally get picked in the lottery after a decade+ for Masters tix. Walk Augusta National for the first time in my life for the practice round on Mon 4/6, then go to the national title game 15 minutes from my house that night. If not best day ever for a sports fan, it would be in the conversation. (/selfishrant)

    Since no need to accommodate fans, I hope the NCAA reconsiders hosting tournament games in the larger venues like Mercedes-Benz. Original configuration called for a court in the middle of the football field so they can put 80,000 people in the building for the Final Four games. Move the games to State Farm Arena? Georgia Tech or Georgia State? A local high school? Anything would be better than playing in the middle of an empty cavern.

    Hopefully the NCAA can simply push back the scheduled sites by a year so that this year's hosts get the games in 2021 or shortly thereafter.

    Makes no sense to play the game in the Dome. I suggested Georgia Tech earlier in the thread. Jimbo didn't like my Cintas Center idea!

    Kentucky played at Ga Tech in the SEC tournament the year the tornado struck in Atlanta. They played with only family and staff in attendance. It did seem weird with such a small crowd.

    Yea they are talking about moving the regionals to smaller venues but the first and 2nd round games are going to stay for now.

    Yes they would. I would say if that happens during the NCAA tournament they will probably just shut down the tourney.

    Just announced, The Big Ten tourney will not have fans starting with tomorrow's games. I suspect nearly every other conference go this way too.

    Maybe it doesn't make sense to play the Final Four in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in front of 85,000 empty seats. They should find some place smaller, like the CDC's cafeteria.
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Georgia won a doubleheader and ended up SEC champs. Came closer than I would have liked to knocking out my Muskies as a 14 seed, too!

    Would have strenuously disagreed until Rudy Gobert.
