One of the better MAC players officially transferred to Pitt.  Big loss in Oxford.

Miami basketball is a dumpster fire with that only shining moment beating Buffalo in round 1 this year

I like it, but it appears we've found a place with defense equal to that played in the Akron Canton Pro-Am League!  I hope there's a lot of free throw shooting that didn't make the highlight tape.

In the midst of the COVID mess, I have looked at the college basketball season as something positive on the horizon to look to after the crisis passes.  Here's hoping.  We may be looking at a shortened and/or delayed season and the possibility of conference only play (weren't we just saying that about football?)

 

Here's an interesting ESPN piece with some interesting insights-

Nothing is happening in November.  And if there's a season in January there won't be any fans allowed at the games.   These guys can plan and plan but unless there's a vaccine college sports for the fan base is over.

Nothing happening in November means no chance to see us upset the Buckeyes. 2020 is the year that just keeps on giving.

What if there's no vaccine for five years?

I guess the faculty union's dreams will come true.

I've been socially distanced in the cheap seats for the last 3 or 4 years!

They should only allow Zipsnation members to attend the games.  Problem solved.

I like this idea.

Each member would get their own section to sit in.

Now that's social distancing.

Sounds like our Canadian friends may be down a player this season as one of their players stabbed a Canisius player during a pickup game.  Nice.
