College hoops staying where it is on the calendar
Thankfully, that won't be happening in the near future.ESPN reported the change would have been too dramatic.
The sports calendar in the spring is fine the way it is. March Madness leads into MLB opening day, which leads into the Final Four, which leads into the Masters, which leads into the NBA and NHL playoffs.
I know the NCAA wasn't taking that broad a view when it was looking at men's basketball. But I'm glad it decided to keep the season as is.
Could it be shorter? Absolutely. Instead of early November, tipping off the week of Thanksgiving would be fine. But not seven weeks shorter. That's too much.
