2-minute drill: What’s your weekend without Selection Sunday going to look like?

After all that was canceled today, how shocking is it that State Hoops went on as scheduled today? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-The boys state tourney went on as scheduled—and we’ll see if the rest of the tourney goes on the same way or not

-But we were informed about March Madness being canceled right before Jake went on the call for a C1 first round game…how shocking is it that the first round continued to happen?

How much will (likely) not having the Spring Game and spring practices halt Nebraska’s growth for the Fall football season?

-It’s inevitable that there will be no Spring Game, and probably no spring practices. Wonderful. Just what this program needs right now.

-To be fair, it does affect every university (likely). But many programs don’t have as important of years as Nebraska does this year. Think about how much more important the season comes for fans if there are no sports at all leading up to it…the people will be STARVING for sports and success, at that

How long can a season not be played before it’s canceled?

-College baseball announced the season won’t be played going forward, including the College World Series. But MLB is not committing to canceling the season…but it sounds like we won’t see anything until May at the earliest

-What if it goes beyond May? How long can you go before the season is not salvageable? Same for NBA…and don’t you dare let this slip into football season…

March Madness is March Sadness: There will be no NCAA Tournament this year..and no College World Series

-F*** you, Coronavirus. The sports world is dead as we know it, with everything in sight being canceled or suspended until further notice. March Madness is no longer for the year, and the economy will suffer because of it, and so will everyone’s lives who are improved by the glorious tournament

-Who do you feel worst for this year’s tourney? Rutgers? Seton Hall? Creighton? Dayton? What a rough thing…Nebraska chose a good year to be bad

-Also…Omaha is screwed. Think about how much money they thought they’d bring in from the NCAA Tourney first 2 rounds and also College World Series…yiiiiiiiiiiiikes.
