Games are currently scheduled to be held in Dayton and Cleveland.

It’s officially time to panic. It’s officially time to go wild and panic. I drew a line in the sand and we’ve crossed it.

Why is this happening? Why did coronavirus have to blow up in March and why do fans have to be banned? Seriously, why?

This is honestly outrageous. I feel so bad for the people who bought tickets, the players, their parents and everybody who loves March Madness.

If you’re not upset about this, then you’re not paying attention. March Madness is being stolen from us, and I won’t sit here and pretend it’s okay.

I understand public safety, but this situation is being blown way out of proportion. Let us know in the comments if you agree with fans being banned.

Personally, I think it’s insanely stupid.

P.S.: Get those aircraft carriers back and ready for games ASAP.
