    ESPN's Big 12 Primer has ISU in NIT

    Just got done reading Eamonn Brennan's Big 12 Primer on ESPN.com. He has ISU as one of the Big 12's "scrappiest" teams and predicts the Cyclones to play in the NIT. Good read.

    What to expect in Big 12 play this season - men's college basketball - ESPN

    Re: ESPN's Big 12 Primer has ISU in NIT

    I would be more than happy with NIT, especially if we can get another home game or two out of it. After 5 years of no postseason play, in a year where there were no expectations, NIT is something i can be happy with.

    I completely agree. The NIT would be a major accomplishment for this group of players.

    If we were to make the NIT with 7 scholarship players + Bubu, I'd be ecstatic.

    That being said, I think the way the NIT picks teams will put us at a disadvantage. Typically, the NIT favors teams that make a push to the end of the season. I don't know if we'll fit that bill. I hope we do, but I'm still not optimistic.

    A good point. OTOH, i they keep attendance in mind as well, and i think we'll have solid attendance if we get invited, and be a team that is excited to be there.

    I wouldn't just be happy with NIT...I'd be freaking thrilled! The NIT isn't the same to get into as it used to be. You've got to be 'close' to a tourny team to make the NIT anymore. If that is the case I think CFH deserves a few looks at Big 12 coach of the year.

    I would love to see DG and JVB get some post season play. An NIT berth would be fantastic for the team, Fred, and the fanbase.

    NIT would definitely be a step in the right direction.

    I'm setting aside money in case we host an NIT game or two.

    But I'm not excited, because people tell me not to be


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    The NIT is a perfect fit for a team with seniors you like to root for, and young players with potential. also helps to make the NIT as an over, rather than under achieving team.

    If ISU makes any post-season play, Hoiberg should be Big 12 coach of the year.

    I love having the team called "scrappy." When was the last time that happened?

    No kidding. I'd gotten used to just dropping the "s"

    If we win on Saturday, I feel pretty good about making the NIT.
