Welcome back, college hoops!
It seems like only yesterday that you were so abruptly taken away from us. Those terrible handful of days when plug after plug was pulled on the 2020 postseason, just as it was tipping off. A stack of conference tournaments shuttered, followed by what will forever be remembered as March Sadness.
Then again, it also seems like that was 37 years ago. That’s how the 2020 calendar has worked, or how it hasn’t worked. So much has changed about the world since March 12, and yet so much has not. Most of that list of stuff is bad, both what’s changed and what hasn’t. But you know what isn’t bad? You, college hoops. You are still awesome, and it feels equally awesome to finally have you back.
