I know a lot of people think he should put up 40 points and 20 boards a night and never miss a shot, but not many guys do that, and the ones who donít arenít playing college basketball.

I can't count the numerous posts that demanded he put up 40 pts and 20 boards a night. They're infinite. This board is so demanding..

Doo,

Thanks for everything. You are a great player. Sorry this COVID-19 epidemic robbed you of another post-season.

Good luck in your professional endeavors.

Agree. Feel awful for every college athlete, but especially seniors -- particularly those on teams that were heading to the postseason. Would suck to have played your last game without even knowing it. At least our final game of the season was memorable (and winning) one.

Yep. It stinks for all of us, but especially for these young athletes who work so hard. Here's wishing Doo all the best going forward. He's been a lot of fun to cheer for.

Doo will be missed for sure.

BTW, I was watching a bit on ESPN with Reece Davis, and they were talking about the NCAA granting some kind of waiver for seniors, allowing for grad school or something, so they wouldn't lose their final year. But he also acknowledged what a difficulty that could cause with scholarship limits, Title IX, etc.

It would be great if they could do something, but highly, highly unlikely.

Got to really feel for teams like Dayton or San Diego St that had once in a lifetime seasons and a chance to win it all.

They have the power to grant a 1 year special waiver. They could allow those seniors to play next year with an exemption that doesnít affect scholarship limits, title IX, etc. Will they do that? IDK, because the NCAA is stupid and corrupt. However, they could very easily if they so choose.
