Re: A real bonafide.....

I doubt we play in the Spring. Would seem a little silly for the MW, MAC, P12, and Big 10 to do their own thing in the spring after everyone else is done and a 2020 champion has already been named. Ice football in February when I want to be watching basketball is not my idea of a good time. Hopefull...

Replacing the Spectrum would be a mistake. It is a cathedral of college basketball and a special place. Kansas ain’t knockin’ down Allen, nor is Duke knockin’ down Cameron (both of which are much older than the Spectrum).

Unlike Football (for several obvious reason) we can likely pull off Basketball in the age of Covid-19). Lets hope! I agree.

No, it won’t happen.

The next Aggie sport we will see is an abbreviated college basketball season in early 2021.

If school is online, a bubble concept at the conference level might work for college basketball. Maybe I’m crazy for thinking that.
