    There was a lot of talk on Twitter from the talking heads that they might.

    What’s their problem? Is it really that hard to provide some recognition to kids who worked their asses off to earn a goal?

    I think releasing a bracket is a little silly but I do think they should at least release the teams who were in. That's a big deal for some smaller programs like NC State.

    Every D1 team would have to sign off on the regular season champion being considered the autobid


    Good luck with that

    They wouldn’t have to sign off on sh** the selection committee could make/change the rules as they see fit. This is all hypothetical and unprecedented anyways, they wouldn’t need any schools permission or agreement on the auto bids, they could just do it.

    That being said I don’t see the point in releasing a bracket to a tourney that’s not gonna be played.

    That’s not true. Every league has to have a rule in place for what happens when their conference tournament is unable to be completed (for a variety of reasons).

    We are. It has been written. But we still wanted to know the teams we crushed on our way to the title.

    We were told the colleges and conferences would have to sign off on changes such as the selection procedures and would then have to sign off on the bracket having legal standing.

    NCAA wasn’t going to waste their time or money to go through that for a bracket that wasn’t going to get played.

    Where are bonuses coming from if they didn’t play any of the games and made 0 revenue from the tourney. I would agree if the tourney was postponed, yea ud have to have everyone on the same page. But the tourney is canceled so why would they need anyone’s permission to create a pointless bracket. Nvm I don’t really even care. Whole premise of making a bracket for a canceled tourney is stupid imo, but to each their own.

    Because nearly every single coach and staff has bonuses built into their contracts for making the tournament

    For bottom-tier programs like Kansas State, contract extensions are given just for making the field.

    Hell, Bruce’s second best tournament ‘run’ was winning a play-in game. That performance is a highlight on Bruce’s resume.

    just make your own bracket. It would be just as relevant as anything the NCAA put out.

    Delay the draft since the NBA is on hold and play the damn tournament in the next 2-3 months when the pannickers have stabilized and are back on their meds.

    Should have done the bracket, teams had a regular season to prove how good they were. NCAA never does anything right.
