I could see that for Spring sports although TV sports shows were mentioning that seniors in basketball would like the same deal with the NCAA tourney being missed. That would not work as those players played an entire season already unlike spring sports and affects players on only 68 teams out of 351 D1 teams. Do Hansen, Clark, Lauderdale deserve another year after already eliminated from post season play? Of course not. The NCAA has to stick to Spring only or they are opening a can of worms.
Scholarships are the other problem. If a school has 5 seniors graduating, they already gave 5 schollies to incoming freshmen. Is the extra year on players dime? Does NCAA increase allowable scholarships for one season? Many issues.
