I have a feeling we'll be in the CBI.If we don't make it to the real dance, I might just rather have a home game in the new tourney than a low seed in the NIT. Either way wouldn't matter I suppose, the NIT is higher profile, on ESPN. It's like going to the fat kid's party because the cool kid didn't invite you. I don't really care, but I will sure as hell be there if we get a home game.

The NIT won't take a MAC team if they don't have to, and it doesn't matter how good they are.The CBI is our only choice, and I doubt that UA will foot the $60,000 bill for a home game.We'll see what the deal is later tonight.

I would love that. We could show the Suckeye fans some real basketball.There is no doubt in my mind we would beat them, they are overrated, if there was ever a chance for some exposure in the state, this is it.

I would love to have a shot at them, and if we won that's instant respect from a whole boatload of people around here. I doubt theyt would have much of a homecourt advantage since most OSU fans only root for them if they are on top. I would make the trip.

Probably right after the NIT. I'm sure some teams are waiting to see whether they will get an NIT invite before accepting a trip to the CBI.

I find it funny that we didn't get NIT bid last year, but somehow were predicted to get one this year.
