Lost amidst the opening month of college football, the NCAA and its’ various member conferences have offered a jarringly low amount of information surrounding the college hoops season. So much so that this SEC press release was seen as legitimate news, even though it amounted to “we’re still planning to start conference basketball on time.”
Beyond that, we know literally nothing about the non-conference landscape. Nothing about the remainder of the 2020 calendar, and precious little about the various conference offerings. Which made it all the more stunning when actual schedule news finally arrived.

Y’all, we’ve got ‘em. Actual games. You could be forgiven for wondering if they were ever going to drop, as the logistical nightmare of D1 college basketball (with nearly 3x teams and 2x member conferences) would make the FBS and FCS blush.
But here we are.
I don’t have much else for you, but if you navigate to the official team schedule... we’ve got games. Real, tangible games.
That’s miles ahead of where we were yesterday.
