    2.

    3. NCAA tournament will be played without fans: The NCAA made the unprecedented decision to hold the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments without fans because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
    4. Michigan, Ohio State cancel spring games: The Big 10 rivals are among the programs that have canceled their annual spring football games, as schools around the country continue to strategize around the coronavirus outbreak.
    5. Ohio to issue order preventing fans at “mass gatherings”: Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine will soon issue an order preventing fans from attending “mass gatherings,” which will impact the NCAA’s First Four next week at Dayton Arena, and first- and second-round games in Cleveland.
    6. Ivy League cancels all spring sports: The Ivy League is canceling all spring sports for the 2019-20 school year. The decision of the member university presidents was unanimous.
    7. 2020 College Basketball Invitational cancelled: The 2020 College Basketball Invitational, created in the 2007-08 season, has been cancelled and will resume in 2021. The CBI selects 16 teams that are not picked for the NCAA tournament or NIT.

    Nascar just postponed a race

    Not officially yet. This weekend’s race is still on. Next weekend’s race has not be canceled yet, but if NASCAR decides to run it, it will have to be without fans in attendance, as the Mayor of Miami has banned large gatherings. NASCAR I believe is supposed to make an announcement at 1 PM EST.

    Am I reading the news correct that this weeks race is still on, only the following weeks is cancelled at this time?

  • eaglezzz

    MLS season suspended.

    I think all sports will be suspended or cancelled in the next couple of days. DFS looks to be over for the next month or so.

    Time to fire up NFL Best Balls.

    NASCAR hasn’t postponed the race. The mayor of Miami County did. NASCAR’s decision will be made by 1:00 pm est.

  • marker0357

    anyone else hear that SEC, Big10, and American conf tournaments all canceled?

  • marker0357

    If they even play the NCAA, the selection will be a shit show

  • dolphinkick182

    I’m reading that all NHL practices and morning skates have been cancelled. A report is expected within the next few hours.

    No chance they’re gonna play it

  • JSteele

    MLS suspended their season for 30 days

    NHL is likely going to get announced in an hour or so.

    I’ve tried to stay pretty level-headed through all of this as it just seems kind of crazy. But now, man… we are definitely going through something we’ve never seen before (beyond NBA). It’s just crazy how much this is affecting life in general.

  • Gadnuk

    MLB to cancel spring training with likely postponed opening day. Been reading that it could be even May 1st. Looks like all sports will be gone for several months.

    this is shaping up to be a world-changer

  • tmarohl

    MLB expected to suspend operations indefinetly.

  • bigez952

    It looks like the only sport we will have left to play is the PGA. Maybe this will make for some really big contests over the next few weeks.

    This is assuming it is not cancelled. PGA / NAS / LOL-eSports / XFL are the only ones that have not fully cancelled yet. I expect XFL to cancel soon. PGA and NAS are the only sports I can see continuing but find hard to believe. Some soccer may continue. Guess it is time to start learning foreign soccer, NAS, and PGA!

    They just announced the next two races will be run without fans.

    NASCAR contests are probably going to fill quickly now, as people look for their fix.
