    I'm guessing it wont be on the same days as normal.

    Seth Davis suggested the first round might be Sat/Sun and 2nds round Mon/Tues. Others have suggested due to limited facilities the 1st round may take longer than 2 days.

    Love Hinkle. People saying Hinkle is a dump don’t
    Appreciate the true meaning of what it is. Hinkle is a place to watch basketball in a shitty building. Not many of those around. I love Hinkle.

    Here is an early bracket from KATZ. Notice the #3 seed. Think it was a mistake. Of course I’m sure it will
    be changed. In case it is, it’s VD. Think he meant to put Houston in that spot. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nca...ndy-katz%3famp

    We've already dropped to the play-in game? This bracket is dumb.

    I mean, we might end up there, but we're not there right now.

    Sounds about right. All the metrics have us in play-in game range.

    So basically going 8-8 in the league is going to put us squarely on the bubble again - this annual bubble living is getting to me. I don't like it.

    You only need four sites to play the entire tournament, so they wouldn't have to alter the days if they did not want to. I am guessing they want some time in between games to sanitize, so they probably won't be playing back-to-back-to-back-to-back at one venue like they normally do. It will probably be more like two games per venue per day. With that, you could do:

    PIG & Rd 1 (36 games) - Two games per day at six venues over three days (either Tue/Wed/Thur OR Fri/Sat/Sun) Games at about noon and 7 at one set of venues, and about 2:30 and 9:30 at the other set of venues.
    Rd 2 (16 games) - Six games on two days and four on the third. You can split up the venues a bunch of ways (either Fri/Sat/Sun OR Mon/Tue/Wed).

    The rest works itself out pretty easily. I'd start on Tuesday- you are adding games on days you were playing anyway and it is easier to maintain the usual schedule in the later rounds.

    I read on Twitter that Sean Payton asked if they could do a 14 day quarantine/bubble for 50k fans to be at the Superdome and create a home field advantage. It was shot down, but it raises a fun and interesting idea for fans at the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately it is unlikely to be possible for many reasons but would be cool to implement at X for students. Have everyone quarantine in the dorms and tested for covid twice a week. At the end you have a couple thousand students going crazy at Cintas. I know this won’t happen or can’t happen, but it should happen!

    Selection Sunday remains the same date (as of now). It might be hard to start on a Tuesday as usual given how the world is right now. That is what I think Seth Davis thought the days would be pushed back.
