NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships
March 12, 2020 4:07pm


Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.

Just as bad as overreacting with fear and anxiety toward the unknown, are people who put their ahead in the sand and refuse to know the scientific facts.

What they’re doing is called flattening the curve dipshits. This sucks for everyone but it makes sense.

Can someone post an appropriate email of NCAA? It needs to be done to inform them how much of sheeple and politically correct this BS is, and then a follow up email to rub it in when this dies down.

And what will you do when many die? To heck with many, even one person?

I look at it this way something potentially bad as the 1917-1920 Spanish Flu epidemic. My hometown graveyard has hundreds of people who died from the Spanish flu mostly infants and the elderly . Then President Wilson ignored the problem. Good precautions by Sports organizations. I hope to God it doesn’t get worst. I’m caring for my elderly sister and hell I’m 64.

I've never seen such panic over what is going to amount to a hill of beans.

Part of it is to stop the spread so it doesn’t become like this every year

The annoying part is that these drastic precautionary measures are going to be what prevents it from being terrible and then dummies like you are going to come back in 2 months saying that it was an over reaction

@suckficknaban This will not do anything. People still have to go the grocery, work, gas station, interact constantly. This is all propaganda for the people in charge to protect their money from being sued. An indirect way of greed really. People will still interact no matter if tournaments are cancelled. Sporting events make up probably less than 1% of interactions

The scum gumps just claimed their first baseball and basketball championships, unless of course they have already "claimed" several of those at the turn of the 20th century. Screw the gumps
