    Not just March Madness. Conference tourneys as well as other sports are effected. Going to lose alot of money.

    NCAA tournament will be played without fans

    Bet I still have a better bracket than Obama. That's how I always judge my bracket game whether I beat Obama. I think I am about 7-3 against the former POTUS.

    Why even have them? It's really kind of absurd, if you ask me.

    I’d be surprised if it doesn’t get cancelled.

    It’s probably going to get cancelled. The Nebraska coach had to leave their game early for illness. Id guess its just a matter of time at this point.

    As long as the NIT is open to fans then I am good. Want as many fans as possible for the Gators on opening day. As far as March Madness...I wont be watching as the excitement just won't be there if no fans are in attendance. Already sounds boring.

    While the governor is at it then he should ban shoppers from Walmart, Shopping Malls, Buffalo Wild Wings and anywhere that more than 1 person is attending. What is he waiting for? I mean how much sense does it make that this event is closed but yet those cities aren't being blockaded and I do believe people will still stop at Cracker Barrel to feast with others. I just can't see watching a game with 10 players and no fans. I like the noise and the excitement generated from it all.

    Get ready for the entire tournament to be cancelled. It will only take 1 player to test positive. See NBA.

    As for the others example you used. People need to eat and buy consumer staples. People don't need to gather to watch a game.

    I will not re-elect any president who presided over the cancelling of March Madness. Even if his name was Obama. This will be a bleak spring. Donald, you have been warned.
