Ike, I spent two years in North Dakota. While it does snow a bit up there the winds blow so much the accumulation is usually in drifts. January and February are the worst.

You have a right to be concerned if you plan on driving. I went to Reno to see my son on Thanksgiving last year and got snowed in. I tried driving over the mountains in a white out. It was Donner Pass type ****. Don't be as stupid as I was. It was frightening. Scary ass frightening and I grew up in the north.

My suggestion is to make sure you fly and take a cab/uber when you get there.

I don’t think they experience guilt like that. It’s more likely an excuse not to travel.

They have probably decided there is nothing to be gained by participating in that Sioux Falls tournament — for them.

Well, there are plenty of ACC schools I'd like to see take their place. Louisville, GaTech or Wake Forest are my top 3 ... Or Iona if we need extra media attention without ACC team crapola.

A huge part of the appeal of the tournament is the location and the ability to the players, parents and future recruits about a free trip to the Bahamas... I just imagine telling a room full of college athletes that the Bahamas trip has been rescheduled to South Dakota...

That’s the gist of it — lol

Quote:the Battle 4 Atlantis will not be relocating from the Bahamas to South Dakota.

The tournament’s organizers announced Friday that the event, one of the premier early-season tournaments in college basketball, has simply been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The announcement denied reports that the tournament was relocating to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

So instead of videos showing team bonding activities on the beach or at a national park, we will see them herding cattle or shoveling driveways.

Maybe show them bonding while making snow angels. Just keep them away from the ski slopes.

The Pentagon in Sioux Falls??? Well that's disappointing.






I was hoping for the Corn Palace in Mitchell.

OK ... They're calling it The Falls Crossover Classic now and Dayton is replacing Duke. I imagine
we won't play Wichita State unless it's in the final. That's all I got ... 07-coffee3
