    If that happens? the 20-21 year counts for Dave's deal and he will just have 1 year left right?

    I think we’ll have something figured out by then. Might not have any fans in the seats, but I think there will be a season. They are already talking about bringing the MLB back in the next couple of months, they have 7 months to figure out a plan.

    Depends on what the contract says about "Acts of God" etc.

    IF there were no season next year (and I doubt that happens), I'm willing to bet most places will call that year a wash and extend for another.

    Unless they were already sending you packing.

    Unless students are on campus, they won’t start the season. Maybe they start in January and cancel the non-conference portion? But if they had to do that, I don’t know how they would select at-large teams. May have to make the tournament smaller and do just the conference auto-bids.

    Regular season Conference schedule.

    Top 2 teams play for conference title autobid if needed.

    Tournament is a smaller P5 playhouse for TV...or go with the 32 team (32 conferences)-- top winner from each conference....

    #Butler is among the five teams listed here for Justin Kier (George Mason). If Tucker stays in the draft, Kier would fill a great hole on the wing. #GoDawgs

    Top Grad Transfers: Just 5 of the top 40 remain on the board, and Matt Haarms is the only one left of the top 20. Guys are making quick decisions since they can’t take visits. https://watchstadium.com/top-20-college-basketball-transfers-who-can-play-in-2020-21-03-24-2020/:

    "31) Justin Kier, 6-4, 200, SG, Grad, George Mason
    2019-20 stats: 9.6 ppg (9 games)
    Scout’s take: 'Led the team in scoring two years ago, but was hurt most of this past season with a foot injury. Versatile guard who can do a little bit of everything. Can shoot it from deep, rebounds well for his position and has really improved throughout his career.'
    Schools: Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Butler, Minnesota"

    Hope this doesn't mean Mason is out of it.

    Unless you see something that says otherwise from Justin, I would assume he’s still open to staying at Mason.

    GSII has already said definitely that "Kier is a Patriot," so I am going with that until I hear otherwise.

    Same.

    I wouldn't begrudge the kid doing what he feels is best for him, even if it's elsewhere, but I'd love to see him take his last rodeo in green and gold.

    https://hinklehardwood.com/2020/04/...g-game-for-nba-hopeful-forward-jordan-tucker/:

    "One of the biggest questions for Butler basketball right now is what the future holds for junior forward Jordan Tucker and his currently held scholarship.

    The 6’7″, 210 pound shooter has already declared his intent to leave early for the NBA Draft and test the professional pre-draft waters–but at least publicly hasn’t fully closed the door on returning to Butler for a final season.

    As a ‘super sixth-man’ for the Bulldogs last season, the former Duke transfer averaged 8.9 ppg. and 3.8 rpg.–shooting .357 from 3 point range, in 22.7 mpg during 30 games (5 starts).

    The would-be senior Tucker was projected to be the starter at small forward in a Bulldogs’ 5-man squad that otherwise has four expected upperclassmen as starters (with South Carolina grad transfer guard Jair Bolden’s recent addition at shooting guard).

    The smooth shooting would-be senior forward was potentially expected to be the Bulldogs’ leading scorer next season–if he could improve his ability to both drive and finish at the rim (and hone further consistency on his outside shot).

    As of now, Tucker has until June 3rd to withdraw his name from NBA consideration and retain his collegiate eligibility–as the NBA Draft is currently scheduled for June 25th (although that remains subject to change with the ongoing pandemic).

    Tucker could also return to school if he goes undrafted and participates in the NBA Draft Combine–the latter which may be unlikely.

    The Bulldogs theoretically could’ve rescinded Tucker’s scholarship as soon as he declared his intention to leave for the NBA Draft early and formally entered the professional pre-draft evaluation process.

    Now Butler can either play the waiting game on Tucker with his held scholarship or rescind it entirely–if an immediate impact transfer is interested in playing for Butler next season (or even a sit-out transfer for that matter).

    Jeff Goodman of Goodman Hoops recently indicated that Butler is still interested in George Mason grad transfer guard Justin Kier, who has the size (6’4″, 197 pounds) to potentially start at small forward in the Big East–as Tucker’s possible replacement.

    If let’s say Kier or another immediate impact transfer at small forward informs Butler that Hinkle Fieldhouse is his next desired destination, does Bulldogs head coach LaVall Jordan still play the waiting game here for Tucker? (And risk losing out on an impact transfer who can help the team).

    Some of it could depend on if the Butler coaching staff already knows that Tucker is all but gone out the door–regardless of whether he gets drafted or not in June.

    At that point, there’s no point in waiting around on what’s a mere formality when Butler already knows the future outcome of Tucker’s basketball fate.

    Complicating matters is that Butler doesn’t have a proven in-house candidate for Tucker as it stands at starting small forward."

    Prediction: If Landers Nolley picks Georgia tomorrow, Kier stays at Mason.

    Unfortunately all the tea leaves are saying Nolley is gonna commit to Memphis.

    Best me to the punch. Will be interested to see what other schools fill out his top 5 tomorrow.
