    CBI and CIT teams

    Looks like Oregon was the only BCS school to accept a CBI invite...

    CBI
    Weber State at Oregon
    St. Bonaventure at UCF
    Austin Peay at Boise State
    James Madison at Davidson
    San Jose State at Creighton
    Duquesne at Montana
    Hofstra at Evansville
    Miami, Ohio, at Rhode Island


    CIT
    Buffalo (18-13) @ Quinnipiac (22-9)
    Ohio (18-15) @ Marshall (22-11)

    Furman (22-10) @ East Tennessee State (22-11)
    Jacksonville (19-11) @ East Carolina (18-15)
    Rider (23-10) @ Northern Iowa (19-13)
    North Dakota (19-14) @ Air Force (15-15)
    Northern Arizona (19-12) @ Santa Clara (19-14)
    Portland (20-11) @ Hawaii (18-12)
    Tennessee Tech (20-12) @ Western Michigan (20-12)
    Iona (22-11) @ Valparaiso (23-11)

    Oral Roberts (19-15) @ SMU (17-14)
    Idaho (18-13) @ San Francisco (17-14)


    I guess basically any school with a winning record or close to .500 who wanted to play ball in the post-season had the opportunity

    Re: CBI and CIT teams

    Looks like we needed 17 or 18 wins to go anywhere. If we had beaten UNI and Cal, we might be rocking CBI.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Looks like Creighton has already peaked under McDermott...

    They should win their home game. They need to play tougher in the second half.

    North Dakota won their bid by winning the Great West Conference tourney.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the CBI invited Iowa State. I believe that Oregon ended with a losing record at 16-17, but took the invite.

    You know many other BCS teams had to have turned down a CBI invite before they offered the schools they did...
    -Maryland 19-14
    -Virginia 16-15
    -NC State 15-16
    -Minnesota 17-14
    -Stanford 15-16
    -Miss St. 17-14
    -Arkansas 18-13
    -even So Miss in C-USA at 22-10 went on record to say they declined their invite

    The CBI will take almost any BCS team. Losing BCS conference teams have played in the CBI.

    Why is it that people here don't realize that this is a crap tournament? Nobody wants to play in it, and I bet most of our players are just relieved the season is over.

    Re: CBI and CIT teams

    With Jake Anderson hurt and Scott Christopherson wanting to get his elbow repaired asap, it would make no sense to go to a low level tournament. It would do nothing for our prep for next season, and would delay Scotty getting back. Fred wasn't interested and let it be known.

    I guess it didn't occur to you that Oregon was the only "major" school playing in either of these tournaments. I guess it has everything to do with Oregon being the only "worthy" school to keep playing and nothing to do with no other school wants their name attached to these crap tournaments...

    Re: CBI and CIT teams

    I'm not surprised with Oregon taking a bid to a junk tournament. They are shameless self-promoters, with the scratch to back up the behavior.

    This is horrible logic. Look at the 2 teams who won those "crap" tourney's last year. Missouri State had a solid year and VCU is in the big dance as an at large team. I'm not too upset we didn't jump at one of these but the benefit of playing extra games can help programs get over the hump, especially a program like ours that needs to learn how to finish games. Nothing creates momentum or a buzz for a program like winning. Did anyone care who we beat in Novemeber and December? No but beating the directional no namers got a lot of positive buzz going around the program.

    If it's horrible logic, then why only 1 BCS team in it? Nobody wants to play in it. Also, how did playing in the CBI work out for Oregon State? Are they on the next level?

    VCU is a team that got 4th in the CAA and nobody thought should be in the dance. Missouri State couldn't even win a crappy MVC, how is that solid?
