This Is Way Bigger Than Basketball
 
BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- It sucks.

What else can you say?

Having the magical 2019-2020 University of Dayton Flyers’ men's (and women's) basketball season abruptly ended due to the Coronavirus pandemic just feels wrong, but deep down we all know that it is the right thing to do.

As AG told SVP on SportsCenter: “This is way bigger than basketball”:

It is especially painful when you see this CBS Sportsline simulation of the NCAA Tournament based on Jerry Palm’s bracket:

Or hear that the NCAA actually considered having the top 16 teams play in an abbreviated Big Dance:

What woulda, coulda, shoulda been, eh?

Seth Davis of CBS Sports provides his eulogy for college basketball in The Athletic:

In case you hadn’t noticed, The Athletic has made some of their content (like’s Seth’s piece) available free to non-subscribers. Nice touch by them in these bizarro times.

While sports fans everywhere have basically nothing to watch, Flyer Fans should keep in mind that the balloting is still taking place for the Wooden Award:

And that voting for the Karl Malone finalists began yesterday

As if The Flyer Faithful needed any reasons to vote for Obi, here is the profile that UD created to promote his candidacy:

Or you can just watch this:

Or read Pete Thamel’s excellent piece from Yahoo Sports on the rapid rise of Obi One:

Bottomline: We are The Flyer Faithful. Keep the faith.

That’s it “From the Swamp.”
