    The tournament has been cancelled along with all the other winter and spring championships. Cancelled, not postponed.

    I'm surprised they're already calling off the CWS. But it is what it is.

    Really sorry, UD fans. You have every right to be gutted.
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    What's the "better" way to be gutted, no NCAA tourney, or a 2nd round loss to 9 seed?
    I'm out...like a fat kid in dodgeball

    Ask the Expos from the 90s.

    We’ll never know, and that’s what makes this painful regardless of who you pull for.

    It won't happen immediately but in a few months or definitely next season some teams will start declaring themselves "CONFERENCE" or even "NATIONAL" champs for this year because the games weren't played, these schools are pure scum and should be banned from everything forever.

    if you want to be technical about it....UCF was declared National Champions by Colley Matrix. While they were not CFP Champions, any team that finishes the season ranked #1 by a nationally recognized metric has a "legitimate" claim to National Championship recognition.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colleg...Division_I_FBS

    In 2016, Alabama finished #1 in Colley Matrix, while Clemson won the Playoff and were ranked #1 in every other nationally recognized metric. Alabama realized it would not be received well internally or externally to claim a National Championship after just losing to Clemson.

    I am not telling you or anyone to not find it silly that UCF accepted the ability to claim the National Championship, but the national sports media narrative that they made the claim out of thin air or have no support behind the claim is technically false.

    ACC declared FSU conference champs without them even playing a game. What a total joke. How could you possibly accept that trophy?

    UCF has the same claim to that National Championship as Tennessee has to being the Champions of Life.

    They were the regular season champs...as was UK in the SEC...nothing wrong with hanging a banner.

    In non-coronavirus news, Grand Canyon has fired Dan Majerle

    Rick Pitino being floated as a candidate.

    Your previous coach would agree with that.

    I think it's crazy that they fired Thunder Dan. I thought he did a pretty nice job there, although obviously they were down this year.

    BTW, that's a pretty heady group of names to have in a story about Grand Canyon: Thunder Dan, Marvin Menzies and Jerry Colangelo.

    Well, I can't say nothing about that incident. IU fans didn't like it either.
