The 2019-2020 basketball season came to an abrupt end due to concerns about the corona virus pandemic that is sweeping the world right now.
This means no March Madness, no post season, and most important to this article, no national champion. I’m here to change all that.
I am declaring right now that the San Diego State Aztecs are the national champions of the 2019-2020 season. Who gave me that authority? No one.
I just took it. Right here, right now. These are unprecedented times, and when an opportunity like this comes, you need to snatch it before it disappears and someone else declares their team to be champions.
Why the Aztecs you ask? That is a great question. Lets break it down.
To start, the precedent was set a couple years ago when UCF declared themselves national champions.
This is even more legit though, because that year had a postseason, and an actual champion to say, “hey, wait a minute.” Who would say that this year? Other fans? Since when have Aztecs cared about other fans? Another team? They can’t be champions, because we already declared it. There’s no way anyone can say no.
Secondly, it’s all over twitter. Reporters and commoners alike have declared the Aztecs to be champions, and everything we read on the internet is true, so this must be true as well.
Thirdly, before the invention of the postseason the championship was given to the team with the best record (probably.) This season that team was the San Diego State Aztecs.
With a record of 31-1 the Aztecs have the best record this season, and before you start, I know what you’re going to say. “Excuse me idiot, the computer says SDSU has a record of 30-2, so they don’t have the best record, Gonzaga does.” And you’d be right. However, noted basketball aficionado Matt Norlander said SDSU actually beat UNLV, and didn’t lose to them by 3 points like everyone thought, which would mean the Aztecs have a record of 31-1, which is better than Gonzaga’s record of 31-2. Checkmate.
Once it’s all said and done, it’s clear that the Aztecs are the 2019-2020 Men’s basketball champions. The best record in the nation demands it.
Congratulations to all the players and the coaches, who accomplished the goals they set out to start the season.
They are Mountain West champions, they made the postseason (or at least they would’ve had teams been announced), and lastly, they are the national champions. It’s a good time to be an Aztec fan.
