March Madness is an American sports classic that many love to watch.
But with the government enforced shutdowns, no one knows the fate of the college basketball tournament this year.
Now the NCAA just hinted of the future of March Madness this season and you won’t believe what they have planned.
For many, March Madness is the most wonderful time of the year.
Nothing but continuous college basketball games for weeks with major upsets and buzzer beaters throughout the tournament.

But this year, countless hours of glorious college basketball were stolen from Americans due to government enforced shutdowns due to coronavirus.
People are hoping for the best this year as the light at the end of the tunnel can be seen on coronavirus.
And now the NCAA just hinted at the fate of March Madness.
NCAA senior vice president of basketball Dan Gavitt has stated that “[March Madness] will be a very controlled environment. It’ll be different, it’ll be historic and it’ll be hopefully something we all treasure and experience just once, hopefully not ever again.”
The big change to March Madness is that the NCAA has decided to condense the tournament from many cities to just one.
He continued, “The committee has made a really sound decision here, disappointing as it is to go away from our valued hosts for 13 different sites from First Four through the regionals. Condensing this to one geographic area that we can do it in a more safe and responsible way is where we need to be.”
And the NCAA is in talks with the city of Indianapolis to host a “bubble” March Madness tournament.
It is unclear how the NCAA plans to host 67 games in one city.
One thing that made March Madness great was the fact that it takes place across the nation and gets fans close to the action.
But beggars can’t be choosers and many sports fans will do anything to get just a taste of college basketball.
Thankfully everything looks good to go to have games starting next week.
