You guys must not be paying attention to NIT bids lately...No way Marshall gets NIT bid, other way CUSA gets NIT bid is if A. MTSU loses and B. WKU makes finals, other then those scenarios happening we will have 0 teams in NIT...THey have to make sure every power conference team .500 or above is invited plus a lot of number 1 seeds are losing in these conf. tournaments that take up NIT bids....

Marshall has fans that will buy tickets, have to give fans time and notify them so they can make plans. Nothing wrong with it. Isn't going to change these guys motivation. Looking forward to Fridays showdown with empty sue

I dont see ODU making it to NIT even if they make the finals and lose....WKU only school besides MTSU with high enough RPI to be considered by NIT.....

Colorado was a 106 last season and Ga. Tech a 99 and they got in. Among mid-majors, Richmond was an 80 and Fresno State a 76. Obviously it depends on how many bid stealers there are and for sure if ODU loses its opener they're probably boned, but there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix if they make the semis and a lock if they make the finals.

The NIT bracketologies (they exist!) have ODU in the 4-6 seed range, so solid but not sure yet.

The NIT is going to be a joke this year anyways. Have any of y'all seen the proposed rule changes? The NCAA is trying to ruin this tournament. I'd almost rather play the CIT since they'll be still playing college basketball rules. However, the NIT is more exposure.

NCAA has used the NIT for experimentation for at least two or three years. Not that big a deal. Better they try them out before throwing them into regulation games.

I agree. The only non power conferences that usually make the NIT are teams that win the regular season and lose in the tournament. The NIT at larges almost exclusively go to p5 conferences now.

Also mentioned they would look to “buy” home games until the semifinals (depending on ticket sales?). I think this is to give the athletic department a week to sell tickets for a game that -barring us winning the conference tournament this week - we’re destined to play in.

I totally agree with the reasoning, I just think he should have waited until you guys are out of Frisco to announce it.

Yeah I like the new 3 point line and the 20 second shot clock reset on offensive rebounds. Can't recall the rest

Quarters instead of 2 halves.

And wider lanes.

Like the 3-point line and quarters, don't like the 20-second offensive rebound reset, and unsure about the wider lane so I support testing it at least.

Still wish they would do something about the charge/block rule. I think it needs a rework

I don't know about that. I think ODU might already have done enough for the NIT, but if they win tonight against LT I would imagine they'd be close to a lock. This Monarch fan will be very disappointed with a C-level tournament. In fact, I'd just as soon turn it down if that happens.

They usually say playing in these tournaments helps prepare you for the real tournament. But damn, that was fast. I'll never question our athletic deptartment again.

The same group that hired Tom Herrion. Are you sure you can make that leap?
