Between Hinkle, Bankers Life Fieldhouse and Indiana Farmers Coliseum that's three biggish arenas just in Indy, to speak nothing of Lucas Oil Stadium which I imagine could run 3-4 games simultaneously. You also have IU and Purdue roughly an hour away.

Ha! There’s a reason saying someone’s a Cat’s fan is shorthand for “racist”* around here. 

*I know many, many UK fans personally who are decidedly NOT racist in the slightest. It’s just that the team’s fans tend to skew more rural.

It's funny how liberal Rex Chapman is and how vexing he's become to a chunk of the Cats' fanbase as a result. No mistake, he's very pro-BLM and anti-MAGA.

Central Arkansas (Southland), Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville State (both Ohio Valley Conference) will jump to the ASUN effective July 1. EKU getting raided is the big surprise there since the Colonels were one of the OVC founding schools in 1948.

This is a strange move. It's a football move for Central Arkansas, with the rest of the good Southland Conference teams going to the WAC, but this only gets the A-SUN to five football playing schools, which is not enough to get an automatic playoff bid.

The article Pete linked all but says that its a football move (as like 85% breaks down the different football related ramifications). They are searching for another football member and could possibly (in the short term) partner with the Big South to allow their current teams to be FCS playoff eligible

In postseason news, the NCAA is set to run the entire womens' tournament on one site, most likely San Antonio since they were already set to host the Final Four in 2021.  UTSA and Incarnate Word would be the main hosts, which makes me wonder if they might try hosting simultaneous games at the Alamodome... you'd think they could pull off 4 games at once provided they have a unique horn system for each game.

Host venues:

  • Alamodome (two-court setup)
  • UTSA Convocation Center
  • Bill Greehey Arena (St. Mary's, D-II school in San Antonio)
  • UT Frank Erwin Center
  • Texas State University Events Center

Everything is smack-dab on the I-35 corridor, which means barring traffic it shouldn't be more than a 90 minute drive from San Antone to the outlier in Austin.

Miami/UNC was postponed tonight after video surfaced of members of the UNC team partying without masks on in a room full of other maskless people

The party was apparently held after UNC's win over Duke this past weekend

Not counting the Ivy League - is this the first men's team to punt on the season?

Chicago State did back in December- conveniently after cashing all their buy-game checks.
