According to Jon Rothstein, the conference tournament was canned Tuesday out of fear of the virus, which has already had a huge impact on sports. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Yale will represent the conference in March Madness.

You have got to be kidding me. What an absolute joke on so many different levels. Ivy League schools should be banned from March Madness for 10 years over this move.

Why are people acting like this is a plague taking over the world? If you’re young and healthy, you’re likely going to be fine.

Instead of accepting that and moving forward, people are freaking out without being fully informed, and it’s now impacting March Madness.

This is simply outrageous, and fans should be irate. If they’re not upset, then they’re not paying attention.

Don’t let them steal our March Madness, folks. Don’t let it happen.
