    I guess from a national appeal it doesn't have some of the most storied franchises, but it's not a weak field unless you have been living under a cave for the last 20 years.

    Oregon currently has 25-1 odds to win the national championship. (top 10)
    Wisconsin 30-1 (top 15)
    Houston 50-1 (top 25)
    Butler 100-1 (36th)
    A&M 100-1 (T-36th)

    That's 3 teams that will be ranked come Maui and another 2 that will likely make the NCAA tourny. A St. Mary's team coming off a 26-8 record and a net# 31.

    Can’t believe Butler is currently 100-1, when everyone thinks they are going to be so bad. I was in Vegas last September, was doing well, and noticed that Butler was 250-1. Thought that was a lot higher than they should have been, and put down a hundred on them. Was starting to get excited when they were up to #5. Can’t imagine how I would have been if they started to make a run in the tournament. Another damn reason to hate this virus.

    Did they refund your bet yet? That sucks though. It all sucks not being able to gamble on this stuff. I was messaging with a betting guy who runs a small service and he sent me a message about 10 saying he was taking all unders last night in some kind of Asian table tennis...that is what we have become.

    Hopefully we can bet on the Tiger-peyton v Phil-Brady match in a couple weeks.

    This correct. The fat heads that only watch the blue bloods won't tune in, but the event has a chance to be very exciting. Loyola and Wisky are boring, but the others play a fun style of ball. It'll be competitive and fun. I like that they got an AAC, a WCC and a MVC team in there.

    My bad, for some reason I thought Loyola was in the field. I had a senior moment.

    Oh you had a moment all right, but it wasn’t a senior one. I should know!

    Yeah, had other futures on Masters also, so getting refunds almost feels like winning.

    You realize you’re comparing futures on next season with a tournament in two seasons from now? Projecting which of these teams will be in the top 25 is throwing darts.

    Actually I didn't realize it was the 2021 tournament, good call. Either way, it shows that they are good programs, but lack blue-bloods.

    That could be a winnable tournament.

    Can’t wait! We booked our flights a few weeks ago.

    That’s a really solid field.

    If anyone ever wanted to go to Hawaii or any usual tropical expensive as F place, now is the time. Airfare is still so inexpensive. Book soon before these people realize they can travel again. A lot of fear still out there. Take advantage of it. Especially the hotel costs.

    We were skipping Ft. Myers, regardless of the booger germs appearing (as my three-year-old niece calls them), but we're not missing this tourney since our family has both ND and Butler alum in it. Plus, I have not been to Hawai'i since I was in high school.

    Isn't Hawai'i still doing a pretty strict quarantine upon arrival? As in you have to stay in your hotel room for 10 days?

    I believe that is Kauai, but I’m not an expert. I think you need a negative test within some short window prior to arrival or a negative test after you arrive before you can be out and about on the larger islands.

    I think what Denver Dog said was accurate. But I'm sure it's different flying there vs flying from atl to chicago or whatever.

    Surely by November restrictions will look vastly different than now.
