This is getting out of hand.  Well at least Clemson can claim they finished the tourney undefeated.

Good season to erase from the books and forget about.

Next year will be a return to normalcy. In a lot of ways.

I hate to see that happen. They obviously did it to keep UNC from looking bad and to keep Clemson from winning.

Wrong again. They did it to protect Duke. Get your blame right on who the ACC protects as they try to keep Clemson from winning…

It’s a real shame, but at least the regular season champion gets the trophy, as it should be. Oh well, this one went down the tubes for the Tar Heels. Next year will be different, and wrongs will be corrected.

IMO they should have finished the ACC tournament and done the NCAA tournament but not allowed fans. 

Relatively low risk and still get a nice chunk of TV money.  Plus we are likely to see more and more people working from home so the ratings would be through the roof and allow some normalcy in a rough time.  Maybe start if off with 32 teams and any player that doesn’t want to play doesn’t have to.
