    ***OFFICIAL: NIT THREAD***

    Hey I can still hope can't I???
    (btw, are any Cyclones tweeting about it?)

    8:00 CST Mar 13, 2011 - While debate will rage over the March Madness 2011 Bracket for several days, the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) will select 32 teams who missed out on the NCAA Tournament Sunday night. There are already 14 automatic qualifiers for the tournament and 18 at-large selection in the 74th edition of the postseason tournament.
    Automatic Bids: St. Mary's, Missouri State, Long Beach State, Kent State, College of Charleston, Fairfield, Coastal Carolina, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Murray State, Vermont, McNeese State, Florida Atlantic, Bethune-Cookman, Texas Southern
    Time: The selection show starts at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.
    TV information: ESPNU will have a 30-minute show to unveil the 2011 NIT Bracket. The ESPN network will have exclusive coverage of the tournament.
    Tournament Schedule
    March 15-16: First Round
    March 18-21: Second Round
    March 22-23: Quarterfinals
    March 29: Semifinals
    March 31: Championship Game
    The final two rounds of the tournament will be played in Madison Square Garden. The Dayton Flyers won last year's NIT and will likely be participating in this year's one as well. Is a repeat possible?

    (1) Win your conference.
    (2) Don't win the conference tournament.
    (3) Don't get an at-large NCAA bid.

    FTFY. In order for #3 to happen, you have to follow through with conditions outlined in 3a.

    It would be kinda hard considering everyone is gone on spring break.

    I'd like to see Southern Miss make it but I think they'll come up short.

    Re: ***OFFICIAL: NIT THREAD***

    I don't expect to see us selected by NIT. In the CBI thread, I said we should take the bid. However, after listening to CFH's interview broadcast on the Sunday Morning Sports Machine (KXNO), I would be shocked if we accept a bid.

    CFH, in reply to possible CBI invitation, said that: Jake can hardly walk right now after an injury in Big 12 Tourney, JVB's ankle still sore, and Scotty's eblow still inflammed. Sounded like he did not see any benefit from accepting a bid due to our current injury situation.
