Does it happen?
I think the Buffs win at home, but it'll be tough to beat a team 2 times in a row with the second game on a neutral court. Sure hope they pull it off, tho. These young players, and the program as a whole, could use an appearance in an off-season tourney.
I know odds are against this bet, but I say NIT...
... I'm helpless
...OBTW, we win the BCS title next year too :smile2:
Yeah, I'll admit it. I voted for NIT too.....
where is the "put crack pipe down" option?
Right next to the 'Debbie Downer' option.
Is the CBI tourney still in existence? I say we make it to the round of 8 there.
As long as we're going with irrational exuberance, why not put an option up there that says CU wins the Big 12 tourney and makes the Dance! :smile2:
already there, chief.
Agreed, they should beat TT at home but it'll be tough to turn around and beat them again on Wednesday. TT is struggling right now so I'll optimistically say we can get it done. :thumbsup:
:lol: ya I'm an idiot
Yes it's still around. There's only 16 teams in this tournament, so making it to the round of 8 means that we'd only win 1 game. :huh:
I stand by my prediction.
How does a team get invited to CBI? Would Buffs be eligible sub .500?
CBI invites teams after the NCAA has made its selections. NIT is more prestigious, but the CBI competes with it for teams.
I'm pretty sure that a sub-.500 team is a pretty big exception that only occurs when other teams turn them down (i.e., Oregon State in '09). No rule against it, though.
Here are the CBI fields for the past 2 years. If someone wants to look up the records of those teams, go for it.
2009 – Boise State, Buffalo, Charleston, Green Bay, Houston, Nevada, Houston, Northeastern, Oregon State, Richmond, St. John's, Stanford, Troy, UTEP, Vermont, Wichita State, Wyoming
2008 – Bradley, Brown, Cincinnati, Houston, Miami (Ohio), Nevada, Ohio, Old Dominion, Richmond, Rider, Tulsa, Utah, UTEP, Valparaiso, Virginia, Washington
It sounds like the NIT makes its selections before the CBI, and the CBI actually competes with the CollegeInsider.com tournament for teams (Apparently there's a 4th postseason tournament now. :rolling_eyes: ) :
that's what I was in the midst of posting. Then I checked the CBI web site and they said they pick after the NCAA (didn't mention the NIT). I would guess the NCAA going first is a rule and the other tourneys are free agents in competition.
