    Nine months from now, The Historic 21st Century Baby Boom!

    News flash, college athletes will actually have time to study now and pursue an education, in many ways a relief and a major disappointment rolled into one burrito.

    Feel so bad for all those hard working players who wanted to increase their draft stocks during March madness.

  5. Bear Bezold on June 25, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    Bring these teams back for 2021 Tournament. Have a short season. This field was the biggest mix in the country so much talent. It’s depressing.

  6. Jason on June 25, 2020 at 11:35 pm

    Next year, the tournament should be sponsored by a beer. My vote is for Corona.

  7. Wood Wood on June 25, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    Coronavirus , Corona Beer , it will go away , and you shall drank again .

  8. corn dog 202 on June 25, 2020 at 11:37 pm

    So the can cancel March Madness and postpone the NBA season but not my school!

    This is not fair.

    Well since the season is over, then the National Titles should go to the highest ranked teams at the end of the regular season. Congrats to Kansas Jayhawks Men’s team and South Carolina Women’s team. Also Kansas didn’t pull out of the tournament. They suspended their athletics but if the tournament continued or was postponed then KU could have continued the NCAA tournament. This is according to a KU athletics rep. Dan Beckler.

    March sadness

  11. Anonymous Zero on June 25, 2020 at 11:39 pm

    I understand the decision. It doesn’t just hurt players. It hurts the sports betting business we are in. Reno the city I live in fucked up. All the people that plan vacations around March Madness. One of the biggest gambling events of the year. Cost our city millions. We as people that bet for a living hurt our business. But the health of people is more important. We will lose money, but money is money. But life is irreplaceable. Every sport did the right thing. Respect. Hope we can come together and help each other.

  24. Richard Webb on June 25, 2020 at 11:57 pm

  25. corn dog 202 on June 25, 2020 at 11:57 pm

    I’m so sorry Kansas fans.

  26. Frank Furlacker on June 26, 2020 at 12:01 am

    Not going to lie I would be very happy if there were no more college sports, especially SEC and Big 12.

  27. Melanie Wells on June 26, 2020 at 12:02 am

  30. Son of Jesus on June 26, 2020 at 12:05 am

    You might as well call this years March Madness March Sadness.

  31. Hephaestus on June 26, 2020 at 12:06 am

    BUT if you play with Influenza, you are celebrated. Perfect sense being made left and right! Damn the media to Hell.

  32. Rover Dover on June 26, 2020 at 12:07 am

    The "student-athletes" get so little from the tournament anyway. Mostly they get a risk of injury with no pay. I don’t think the students are losing anything from this.

  33. N B on June 26, 2020 at 12:07 am

    I bet the NCAA’s insurance carrier called and said yeah we can’t cover this. It always comes down to the insurance!

  34. James Shelnutt on June 26, 2020 at 12:07 am

    I guess the MLB is next

  35. Trae Dale81 on June 26, 2020 at 12:12 am

    The Coronavirus has EVERYBODY mad in March.

  36. Scott Worley on June 26, 2020 at 12:15 am

    When UNC isn’t playing it throws everything outta wack.

  37. TheNickExperience on June 26, 2020 at 12:15 am

    I’m no Utah State fan, but I feel so bad for them 💔💔

  38. Mississippi damage report on June 26, 2020 at 12:15 am

    The schools that made the tour: should just find the best player NCAA college basketball on ps3 ,or NBA 2k20 In your University and let’s online it out

  39. Abednego V on June 26, 2020 at 12:17 am

  40. Fat Albert on June 26, 2020 at 12:17 am

    The media shoots itself in the foot by shutting its own revenue streams down. LOLZ!

    Worst idea

  45. Frederick Rapp on June 26, 2020 at 12:20 am

    I know the student-athletes are very disappointed. However, they should learn that life is filled with disappointments.

  46. golfdude2007 on June 26, 2020 at 12:23 am

    the NCAA makes the choice…..the Criminal in the WH is Clueless on what to do…..shows you the Difference in brain power …..

  47. Geoff Weiss on June 26, 2020 at 12:24 am

    Man this just sux, canceled the tournament at the same time as I’m told that if u catch this batflu and your healthy, that u will be just fine. I really don’t get it, there is so freaking little good about living in the USA these days, we are just a culture of fear and hate and belligerence. What a joke. Good to know we have a hysteria button, that can be pressed at anytime. Viva the Chinese batflu, this is why one world corporate media just f***n sux

  48. John Simmons on June 26, 2020 at 12:24 am

    This sucks for the fans in spokane since gonzaga was bout to run the table

  49. luvsilly60 on June 26, 2020 at 12:25 am

    They should play with no fans. Never would they have a bigger audience.

  50. Stepan Volk on June 26, 2020 at 12:27 am

    Oh well….
