Nice try aggy. It would not be worse than the multiple fake titles y’all added to the side of your football stadium. Hell, you losers claimed a Big 12 conference title for a year you didn’t even make it into the conference title championship game. 
That’s way more desperate, pathetic and tone deaf than ending the season as the unanimous #1 team in CBB and hanging a banner, which I doubt KU will even do. 

I was going to reply to his stupid shit comment but couldn't muster up enough energy. 

Thanks for staying on the case, Burt Macklin.

If the NBA comes back just for the playoffs, they should do a tournament with all teams for this one season to determine the champion.

Don't be fucking dumbasses. You both knew what I meant.

No one outside of Texas gives enough of a shit about A&M to care what they put on a wall. It's something for people to roll their eyes or laugh at...those delusional idiots with no actual achievements to celebrate...and move on. Kansas trying to claim any kind of title or put up a banner because of an ongoing pandemic that cancelled the tournament would upset people on a national level, and they'd justifiably be derided for it. I'm fairly confident that they won't be that tone deaf; I'm just responding to the posters up thread suggesting it.

And yes, if Texas A&M basketball was ranked #1 in similar circumstances (in fantasy land), they'd already be having daily parades and self-planning their uninvited White House trip. Kansas basketball should probably strive to have a little more dignity than Texas A&M athletics.

Not a doubt in my mind had UK finished on Top of the polls that 99.9% of BJW fans would be buying up gobs of "We Are The Champions" gear at their local Walmarts.

Steph and Klay are tanned, rested, and ready.  GS vs. Lakers in round 1.

This stuff will impact sports networks (& conference networks) as fans have no content to watch, yet have a variety of streaming options (as Netflix/ Disney+ & Hulu😞

He learned how to speak understandable English about halfway through this last season.  He was almost more fun the other way.

I wonder if what this will lead to is more men realizing just how optional sports really are. The sports I stopped following 15 or 20 years ago? I don't miss them at all.

I think for many, (if this carries over into the fall), it will be a "culture shock" for all, self included...

If football season gets canceled it will become a Fury Road USA.  I’m going to go with one of those porcupine cars.

CDC advising no gatherings of over 50 people for 8 weeks, which would take us to mid-May. 

I'll leave it to the reader to conclude if this NBA season will finish.

 

So, women's soccer and basketball is good to go then?

Yea you’re right we should ban everything. Wash your hands and takes some vitamin c. 

Just an update. They did ban everything since this tremendous post.  Hard to believe it was only 5 days ago.  Lulz.

Sheriff Clarke and you can fight the good fight though...good luck.

Truly unfortunate those that spread fake news about a public health crisis can’t be held liable.

Got it.  Still think it's funny that nobody with a brain seems to think that.  Maybe you can refer me to someone in the science/medical fields who thinks it's a bad idea to shut down large crowds.  Only person I found was some nutter sheriff clarke guy.  Thanks,

I mean, we've all been there: doubling down on a terrible message board take--that you now know is wrong--because you don't want to admit that you were misinformed and ignorant. But it's still funny as shit to watch every time. Especially in ol' Rocket's case when the take is so blatantly irresponsible, unresearched, and myopic. He's pot-committed now...no amount of experts is going to change that.

Back on page 8 post 365....I made mention of the UIL boys State Basketball Tournament.

Well this shit has (maybe) has come home to roost.

From the smallest of Texas panhandle towns a person that I know is in ICU in Amarillo and on a ventilator.....and currently the only thing they can trace it to is 3/4 of the small town made the trip to San Antonio.....the particular person on the vent did not make the trip...but is employed at the school and of course is and was in constant contact with kids that did make the trip.....like I say very small Texas panhandle town....and very close nit all one church community.....It could get very bad....because what I am hearing there are several others being monitored and tested.

Wish them the best.  Keep us updated.  Hope they’re tracing already if the others are old and susceptible like you hinted.

Not sure if this has been on this board yet, but I heard earlier that former aggy guard David Edwards died from the virus. He was a Georgetown transfer in the early 90s and was pretty good.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban rips senators over coronavirus stalemate


 

CHRIS BUMBACA | USA TODAY
Updated 5 hours ago
 
 

How are NBA players staying ready for the season to resume?

 
 
 
 

Mark Cuban was on the front lines of the NBA suspending its regular season, and the Dallas Mavericks' owner has maintained that presence throughout the sports-wide shutdown, advocating for stadium employee pay and the need for social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

On Tuesday, he directed the ire he normally reserves for referees toward a pair of U.S. Senators, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, and John Cornyn, R-Texas, and the coronavirus stimulus package stalemate in the U.S. Senate. A version of the bill did not pass the chamber Sunday, and the two sides remain close to a deal Tuesday. 

"BOTH OF YOU NEED TO DO YOUR (EXPLETIVE) JOB!" Cuban began one tweet. "@SenSchumer, stop kissing progressive (expletive). We can't solve every problem in this deal @JohnCornyn, stop kissing big corporate (expletive). They don't need buybacks or (executive) bonuses. They have no choice but to take any deal they can get." 

In his next tweet, Cuban pleaded for quick action.

"The economy is crashing and people are getting sick and dying because you 2 hard (expletive) think your agendas are bigger than the health and future of the American people," he wrote. "They are not. There is no perfect deal. TIME IS OUR ENEMY. Get this done today!"

Damn. An NBA single elimination march madness would be pretty badass. Would be pretty cool in MLB too.
