    Default Idea to make up for cancellation of NCAA tournament: 2020-21 Preseason NCAA Regionals

    Keep selection show, but use the bracket as a one-off preseason NCAA tournament instead, broken into the four regionals for a max of 4 games. Make sure to have the teams in each region align more geographically with the region they are in potentially. Would be a pretty cool way to make up for the loss of the 2019-20 championship I think. Of course have to acknowledge that game results would be changed by graduations/transfers/incoming recruits, but its better than nothing.

    Do Selection Sunday and then play the whole tourney through an EA Sports simulation.

    create a new game, basketball chess,
    and let the teams work through that,
    Harvard, Cal, Stanford, Yale might be the Final Four









    just being silly, I suppose, to ease the pain of disappointment ...

    Every team picks one player to represent in a winner take all “top chef” competition.

    Bad idea, St. Mary's would probably be one of the finalists.

    Ford was a chess prodigy, learning the game at the age of four with his father, Cuzear, serving as his teacher. He began beating adults before winning two California state titles and was ranked seventh in the nation in his age bracket. However, he quit playing competitively at the age of eight to focus on basketball
