No, just the people posting in it are. I see absolutely nothing wrong with Natty doing a NIT Bracketology thread, since it's likely where we are headed sparring a 4 day run in Brooklyn, or sparring losing out & losing our first game in Brooklyn.This thread is depressing.
I'd say 3 of last 4. I was actually feeling alright (despite the loss) after the Dayton game. Now GMU, Richmond & SLU.... those are different stories altogether. Not a single one of those games left me feeling ok.Not nearly as depressing as watching the last 4 VCU basketball games.
agreed. We aren't a blue blood program...we aren't even in a power 5. Witchita st. have gone to the NIT twice in the last 10 years and done well the following year.As much as I hate not making the NCAA Tournament, there's no way we'd turn down an NIT invite. We are not above it and we could get the youngins some extra experience.
I'm not saying Natty is wrong by starting this thread. I'm simply saying it's sad that we have to look at the reality of working towards being an NIT team as opposed to an NCAAT team that most all of us expected at the start and middle of the season.No, just the people posting in it are. I see absolutely nothing wrong with Natty doing a NIT Bracketology thread, since it's likely where we are headed sparring a 4 day run in Brooklyn, or sparring losing out & losing our first game in Brooklyn.
Well, you're right, they aren't because they're likely in the NCAA tournament barring a late-season collapse.Richmond isn't getting a 1-seed. Mark my words.
Not the NIT. The CBI and CIT are barely hanging on and taking whoever they can get. Teams don't decline NIT bids.We turned down postseason tournaments 2 years ago.
It’s not quitting to turn down these lesser tournaments. Playing in them is about what the players want to do and whether it’s actually going to help the program going forward.
