I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm #done writing bad news blogs for college hoops (unless conferences cancel seasons). We're putting positive vibes out in the universe. So less than 24 hours after the Ivy League cancelled the season, we have this news. The Bad Boy Mowers (what is the Atlantis Invitational) and the Ft. Myers Tip-Off are out here saying come on for a few people and watch some games. I love it. Does it make sense? Who the hell knows. I'm not a doctor. I'm a basketball fan and this is a step in the right direction when it seemed doom and gloom with the Ivy League yesterday.
This is the news I needed on a Friday. Sure, shit can change in a week and a half, but again the Ivy League canceling yesterday just brought back bad deja vu from March. Remember they were the first league to cancel their conference tournament in March, everyone brushed it off and then bam, we were out of basketball. So I'm not going to sit here and dissect anything more than the positive feeling right now.
That and how we could be getting a game between two top-5 teams in front of some fans. Kansas and Gonzaga is going to be an AWESOME game if they both win their first game. Gonzaga is a legit No. 1 team in the country. Corey Kispert is a preseason All-American, everyone thinks Drew Timme could be an All-American, Joel Ayayi is a pro. Oh, they also bring in Jalen Suggs, a legit 5-star who threw this down during last night's Midnight Madness:
There will be games. We will argue about basketball. We will argue about results and make fun of teams for losing. I can't wait. Less than 2 weeks.
