    The tourney will go on but no fans allowed in the venues. Wow.

    I just read that. Like when the Orioles played the other year with no fans in the stands.

    Going to make for a very weird viewing experience. I feel sorry for the kids. It has to be hard not having the additional adrenaline from a frenzied crowd.

    It will indeed be weird, but it seems like the prudent course of action. Better to overact in this case than underreact, IMO.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    So they think the kids that watch the game carry the virus, but not the kids playing the game touching each other.

    Damn. Was setting up to be a great tourney. Feel bad for teams like Dayton especially. It's probably the right call though. Was hoping they could get through it with no fans, but its better to be prudent in a time like this.

    Looks like a season of some kind will at least start later this month. I suppose with the NBA being able to make it through the summer without a major outbreak they decided to give it a go. Pro athletes in a bubble is doable, but student/athletes who also may have to attend classes, interact with non-team members, etc., is much more dicey. For completely selfish reasons I'm glad they're going to try, though; the Hawkeyes are pre-season #5 based on returning basically the entire squad from last spring, including pre-season 1st-team All-Am and potential POY Luka Garza for his senior year. Tough schedule, though; they have Gonzaga, UNC, and Villanova lined up as non-conference foes and will play at least once against each of the other six B1G teams that are in the pre-season top-25.
