"I feel like we have hit the iceberg, and we are making decisions about when we should have the band play," one advisor said, referencing Titanic.

Did the marching band already drown?

Of course the SEC will be the last holdout. DeSantis and Kemp will insist all is well and hold the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party if they have to stock each tailgate with ventilators, bleach kegs and hydroxycholoquine-laced brats. .

Like I alluded to in the other thread... how does the NCAA not have centralized government over this stuff?  What the hell does the NCAA actually *do* then?

So how can they hand out penalties- some super severe- to schools for some things... yet can't control other things?

What does the NCAA do?  They work hard to ensure that their athletes are treated like cattle with few rights.

They run the tournaments (except football) and police the "rules" for being in the tournament.  Not much else.

The marching band refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the music died?

I feel sorry for any pale redhead in the Florida sun. I bet he turns into a sunburnt beet once a month.

I'm pretty sure those are actually Georgia fans, doing a parody of Florida fans.  Which is kind of silly considering that you could merge everything South of Atlanta with everything North of Miami into a single state.  Both the citizenry and the landscape are pretty much the same.

Well, they make sure to penalize schools for these egregious violations while also finding no violations in the Larry Nasser case.

The "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" hasn't been an official thing for a while now.

Hardly. Orlando is a hodgepodge of people from other places. Tampa is heavily Cuban. St. Pete is an odd mix of retirees and hipsters who don't like baseball. Sarasota and Naples are populated by wealthy midwesterners who love golf. Hardly anyone in these cities identifies with the "Deep South". Jax is pretty "southern redneck" and could very well be part of Georgia. It also smells weird. Landscape is beaches along the coast, swamps in the center of Florida south of Orlando. By the time you get into Georgia you get into rolling hills, pine forests and lots of kudzu.

You can thank a 7-2 SCOTUS decision for that back in 1984.  The blue bloods of football formed their own organization and was going directly to the television networks for TV deals.  NCAA didn't like that so they went to court.  SCOTUS said the NCAA had no right to keep the football schools from making their own deals with TV, so now the NCAA doesn't see a dime from football while they see billions from the NCAA basketball tournament.

So the NCAA telling the P5 they better play or else?  Jenniferlawrenceyeahok.gif

The NBA could so easily destroy NCAA basketball this fall if they wanted to. They already have the infrastructure in place with the G-League.  They could just expand the draft 2 more rounds and suck all of the talent from NCAA basketball.

Players drafted in rounds 3 and 4 get a 3-year guaranteed G-League contract paying them $100k - $50k per year depending on when they're drafted. If they get promoted to the main team there's some bonus structure or conversion of the contract.

Eh, there's too many "really good but not NBA level" players to really do that.  Sure Duke, UK, KU, and UNC would have lower talent levels, but that would only make March Madness more level and filled with more madness.

Plus after the first year or so you're either drafting all high schoolers or you're doing those extra draft rounds

The biggest thing the NCAA can do to get these other conferences to shut down fall sports is to flatly declare that there will be no recognized national champions for 2020 in those sports.   in additional state that no conference champion crowned this year will be officially recognized by the NCAA either.    Also reassure players that no years of eligibility will be lost and that they will be allowed to switch school if their current one refuses to recognize this.

Take away the object of desire for the conferences and the motivation to play goes away.    It may not work but if they play it will be for nothing save whatever money is made selling tickets.    No championships to be had this year.

The NCAA is actually saving money by not having soccer and volleyball etc. championships, money they don't have because of no March Madness.

I would put my money on there being some sort of basketball tournament though next year.  They've seen the NBA bubble model, they can do that with hand picked teams even without a regular season.  They're that desperate for money.

they pretty much already have.  the one and done players made it less interesting to care about who was playing from year to year.  I'm pretty sure the one and done rule goes away soon.

there isn't much attention to regular season college bball.  it's all about the ncaa tournament.  even then, if somehow someone eliminated the bracket challenges the entire thing would be gone.

Is there any liability or are the athletes and staff all signing waivers?

I think it's been established that a waiver wouldn't hold any legal weight
