    Just to add, Nashville's MLS team also had to bail on the tourney with 9 (NINE!!!) positives after arriving in Orlando.

    Hearing whispers that the big east is strongly considering a conference only bball schedule...I think it's way too early to even be thinking about something like that but I suppose never bad to have a contingency plan.

    With so many new faces, I'd love to see some ramp up games. Stepping right into the big east spells doom.

    “Whispers” as in a tweet by Adam Zagoria saying the Big East is considering a conference only b-ball schedule?

    Kevin Willard: “I do not agree with pushing [the season] back, because I think we’re missing a window,” the Seton Hall coach, who is part of the Big East COVID-19 Task Force, told The Post. “Every school has said after Thanksgiving there will be no one on campus, so why would we not take advantage of having no one on campus? It’s almost like being in a bubble and being able to have almost no interaction with any of the students. It’s probably the safest time to play.

    “Sitting back and waiting for flu season and waiting for kids to come back on campus is idiotic.”

    Willard’s suggestion is playing a conference-only season of 26 or so games in the Big East and starting the season in November.

    Was at that game. The silence after he hit that shot was golden. I recorded it too.

    I LOVED Steele's post-game press conference. His downcast comments. His expression.

    Had to look at it again.

    Priceless. (Just X stuff after the 4:26 or so mark, so you may ignore that content.)

    I was there too—it was euphoria. A BU fan near me, pretty toasted, was kinda inviting attention—he got it—lots of hand gestures and potty mouthing:)

    I think the best part about the presser is his herpes outbreak. Seriously though, nice comments. Would’ve never been said by Mack.

    True - but the loyalists will see that as a fatal sign of weakness - I think his tenure will be short...
