    CBI...Yes or No

    Sean Keeler | Des Moines Register Staff Blogs

    Quick aside before Drake tips off tonight to open Arch Madness: Now that the Cyclones (16-14) have clinched their first non-losing regular-season record since Wayne Morgan left town — what would you think about some more home games at Hilton Coliseum?

    Reportedly, the asking price for a home tilt in the 16-game College Basketball Invitational — it’s pay-to-play, and winning records are optional — is roughly $60,000.

    What do you think? Should Iowa State officials should pony up?



    Keeler poll.

    I say yes. Especially if it meant more home games at Hilton. I can't possbily see a downside to more games this year in year one of Freddy's tenure.

    If we were further along in his tenure I wouldn't want to go and I don't want to ever have to worry about it again, but this one year I say lets do it.

    hell yeah


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    agree completely, and this is a one time situation only. I will go to the game over there in Hilton. NO Hampton rematch though. Please. Give me a MoValley team or a Big Ten .500 team if possible.

    I would love to beat down Hampton to make myself feel better.

    Another thing is if we do get a home game it is a guaranteed sell out

    I would not go to the CBI. If we were starting 3 freshmen, I'd say OK. Our starters are not especially young, and most of our starters for next year are not able to play in this anyhow.

    I would actually welcome Hampton with open arms...

    then use those open arms to smother them.

    Re: CBI...Yes or No

    The CBI and that other tournament that isn't the NCAA or NIT need to be eliminated before people start thinking that going to these things is an actual accomplishment. I would hope ISU would keep their money and be part of the solution instead of contributing to the problem.

    Re: CBI...Yes or No

    As a non-NCAA event could the transfers play? I thought I read somewhere in the last year or 2 where one of these off the map tournaments where a school wanted to play a redshirt player. I could be way off the map too here.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    It would be good experience for Ejim and Godfrey though. Maybe show that the university is behind the direction this program is taking? In the world of college athletics is $60,000 all that much money?

    I am sure Diante, Jake and Jamie would all like to play as many more games as possible.
    I say Yes without a doubt.

    I think if you are of the belief that this program is going to get back to the levels in the 1990s, then you do not do this.

    I am of the opinion that a tournament like this is beneath a program that wants to take themselves seriously in the future. We aren't Northwestern here.

    Re: CBI...Yes or No

    Looking at the money stand point. I say yes. We have been consistantly been filling up Hilton all year, even against the bad teams, and when we are now in last place in the Big 12 standings.

    It could be a good way of Jaime pocketing a little extra cash by selling out Hilton for a post season BBall game.

    You know Hilton would be a rockin' for the first post season game in a long time.

    Re: CBI...Yes or No

    No thanks.

    This tournament is for the Nebraska's of the world. Not teams who have real aspirations in men's basketball.

    This season has been better than expected. No reason to ruin it by playing in a 4th rate, money grab of a tournament. I doubt Pollard would do this.

    I'm completely fine with the NIT because at least that tournament gets media attention and has some prestige. The CBI is a complete joke. I respect what this team has done and look forward to bigger things next season.

    Now this made me laugh. Students will be gone on Spring Break, and anybody who loves college basketball understands just how worthless this "tournament" really is. This is the kind of "reward" that society should avoid.
