The Big 10 will have fans in stands for the conference basketball tournament.

The B1G announced Thursday that up to 8,000 fans will be in the stands when conference teams start battling it out March 10 for a title at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

During the regular season, attendance has been banned because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

I love this move from the B1G, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a Big 10 guy. I’m saying it because it’s true.

We need to put fans back in the stands if it’s possible, and we’ve clearly gotten to a point to where it’s possible to do safely.

The SEC had football fans and the B1G will now put up to 8,000 people into the stands starting March 8. March Madness will also have fans, which I can’t wait for.

I haven’t been to a college basketball or football game in over a year, and it’s time for that streak to end.

I honestly can’t wait to fire up my TV to watch some B1G action and see passionate fans in the seats. It’s going to warm my soul.
