The NCAA was criticized for its decision on a women’s golf regional in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The NCAA decided to cancel the regional tournament due to weather. The course was reportedly in playing shape, though it wasn’t deemed up to championship level.
“Therefore, the top six teams that were seeded will advance along with the top three individuals that were not on those teams,” NCAA committee representative Brad Hurlbut said. “Again, heart-wrenching decision that we had to make. The course is playable, but not playable at a championship level.”
Video of the NCAA’s announcement went viral on social media.
Spiranac, who played college golf before becoming a mega star on social media, had a blunt message for the NCAA.
“I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. The NCAA sucks,” she wrote.
