Tournament cancelled. If there is a NCAA Tournament, MAC will send regular season champs.

ACC, SEC, B12, B10 and PAC12 all cancelled. At least the NCAA is beginning to show a unified approach.

NHL shutdown, Spring Training to be announced soon (what a shame no MLB game in Cleveland on March 26). No problem though, if they strictly enforce the hygiene rules in my gym that were just published the whole neighborhood will be in jail soon. One sneeze and they can throw me out. I sneeze when I look at an incandescent light bulb. I think my Olympic career might be over.

You can be pretty certain there will be no tournament. Duke and Kansas said they would not participate even if they received a bid.

No NCAA winter or spring tournaments.

I can’t believe I just typed that.

The College World Series is in late JUNE.

It’s a little weird I agree but I like some of the moves. Make the move and get it over with and watch how it goes. The drip, drip, drip of the last few days is the worst way to do things. DeWine just closed schools for 3 weeks. I just wish the Federal Government could get out of its own way.

Kind of humorous really. Akron's chance to get an auto-bid and the whole thing gets canceled.
But hey, at least they have a very nice stadium.

All day I was looking forward to coming on here and making the joke "Does it take an act of God for John Groce to get Akron into the tournament? Yes, in fact it does.". Then they go and cancel the tournament before I can accumulate all the LoLs with it.

At least the Zips are spared the humiliation of losing in the championship game.

Again.

Next year won't look good for them either. Not sure what their JUCO situation looks like, but they are losing a lot.

Anymore it's hard to know what teams will look like year to year. Most years are a near rebuild. We're losing close to as much as Akron (especially if Pippen leaves as a grad transfer). Of course their MAC POY could also leave as a grad transfer.

LCJ already announced on his instagram page that he's returning for his senior season

After hearing the news yesterday I was devastated. My brothers and I worked so hard to get to where we are at and our goals still being able to be accomplished. I’m hurting for my brothers @chanlo_loc @ty4cheese @xwilliams20 @dengriak @quelleee_ you guys are true definitions of warriors and I’m grateful to have played alongside you guys. The Akron fans that have watched us grow throughout the season and supported us thank you. We will be back to carry on the legacy that those 5 seniors have paved for us and accomplish the goals we set out that were cut short. I love y’all boys you guys have done more for me then you even know. Forever my Family. #1Akron #TTP

RE: 2020 Mid - American Conference Tournament
If he stays that's good for Akron but if Danny Pippen said the same thing today, I would still take it with a grain of salt. We don't even know what coach or assistant movement will happen yet.

One thing I'll add. I am very interested to see what the recruiting freezes that have been put in place will do for grad transfers. When the freezes are lifted there will be less time to decide on a team (for recruits or transfers) but more available spots. I'll be very interested to see how this impacts the number of players we see transferring. I could certainly see guys being scared and staying put. But I could also see grad transfer eligible guys seeing lucrative spots available late in the game that they could slide right into and not being able to pass it up.

A 6-12 MAC Championship game ..... first, that's a lot of upsets, particularly for the 12. Second, if that had happened, it likely would have meant a P.I.G. in Dayton at best, followed by a low-seed blowout a few days later.
Not a good look for the MAC.
