    So, with the tournament cancelled, does the imposed ban still count?

    If we were in the postseason, we'd have played in the ACC Tourney yesterday.

    We didn't, due to the Postseason ban.

    The ACC Tourney was cancelled today.

    I'd say we served the ban.

    Yes. Postseason started without GT in it. This is pretty easy to figure out.

    I’d say we’re good. Last thing the NCAA wants is a lawsuit, especially after losing 1 billion dollars. Lol

    For sane people, yes, but are there really sane people in the ACC and NCAA?

    It's ironic that we accepted the post-season ban and it wouldn't have mattered if we had participated. Even if we made the cancelled NIT.

    It would if our appeal was subsequently denied and the ban was for next year.

    I misspoke. Didn't quite mean that. It is good we accepted the ban this season. If we hadn't the tourney was still cancelled as was the NIT and, yes, we would have probably have been banned next season. It's just ironic.

    Most fans aren’t used to seeing their AA make a smart move with the NCAA, and so have a tough time putting that into words

    Very funny, but also very sadly true at the same time.

    But as we type -

    Swofford, uncheats, ncaa are formulating rules to say if a pandemic happens that all punishments will be pushed forward to the next season if the schools are located in major metro areas (which areas to be determined by seance at Dean Smith's mausoleum) and located below the mason-dixon line.

    So, I went to the actual NCAA ruling. The relevant text:

    "Competition penalty: During the 2019-20 academic year, the men's basketball program shall end its season with the last regular-season contest and shall not participate in postseason conference or NCAA tournament competition."

    It called it out by season, not specifically a 1 year ban. We have served the penalty.

    Agreed that the wording means me served our penalty. But even if it was ambiguous i think we could have argued that and additional year of recruiting under this cloud would have made the penalty harsher than originally intended.

    I can pretty much guarantee the NCAA will try to say the postseason ban does not apply to this year.

    I'd stake my reputation on it.

    They'll be wrong, but when has that ever stopped them.

    You do realize people lump you in the same group as me, right?

    Let that sink in.

    Did I ever claim to have a reputation, let alone a good one?

    I always thought y'all were the same person and we were just reading a schizophrenic conversation with yourself
