    Myles Brand says fans' and athletes' safety come first.


    The NCAA Tournament suddenly has more serious issues than a bracketing goof. Monday night, NCAA president Myles Brand said games could be postponed if the U.S. goes to war this week. Baseball, too, is questioning Opening Day in Japan.

    It would be a shame to let a mad man like Hussein dictate whether we continue with all aspects of our lives including sports. On the other hand, athletic events seems kind of trivial compared to numerous Americans risking their lives for the sake of world freedoms.

    O.K. Now I'm anti-War. Let's give the inspections more time. Saddam. You've got to 4/8 to come clean.

    I don't see the tournament being postponed. By the time everything got rescheduled it would be time for next years tournament. They might cancel the tournament this year. But if it is because of the terriost threat they just as well not ever have one again. That threat will always be.

    They're playing as scheduled, per press conference on right now on ESPN with NCAA President Myles Brand.

    Maybe I am mistaken, but I would almost think that with technology what it is, the soldiers that are serving probably would like to listen to the games via satelites or internet. It would certainly provide some stress relief for our American servicemen.
