We got SCREWED. THe NCAA said that if 5 players test negative, they can play. VCU only had three negative tests. Tipoff is in half an hour and there is literally no reason the game shouldn't be played other than the NCAA moved the goalposts (not surprising).

Part of me really wonders if the same decision would've been made if our jerseys said "Virginia", "Michigan", or even "Gonzaga" instead of "VCU". Probably not very productive to think that way, but there it is.

The Health Department should not have made the call. The NCAA should have stuck by the rule THEY made and said "ok, so they had three players test positive and 9 test negative. Play ball!"
Unfortunately the NCAA defers to the health department when it comes to COVID protocols. They made their determination that the virus was spreading and decided it was unsafe for us to play. It sucks but it’s their call.

Not the time to talk about what a great season we have had , plenty of time for that.

Just did this myself and pass on to others: Don't forget to cancel the recording on your DVR's or you will be seeing that in your saved list until you delete it and it will be like salt in the wound.

Celebrate the season. In your hearts, embrace the players and staff.

Doubt it. UVA had to delay travel until yesterday and went the whole week without a full practice, and they just lost to Ohio.

I imagine the local health dept. was the deciding agency on not playing.

How great would it be if Texas won this year. We win next year, while LSU gets a 1 seed and loses in the first round.

But they got to come and play. I believe if they had been a higher seed and NOT the most recent national champs, they wouldn’t have been allowed to play.
