Re: NCAA Tournament proposal

Or they could just play the schedules that were already set up, let each venue or conference decide if they're going to allow fans, how many fans, and if those fans need to wear face masks.

Arizona would help their public perception if they’d quit counting every positive Covid 3 times.
