    All 4 Iowa Teams make Post Season

    Well it appears NCAA basketball is slowly becoming more like football where everybody with a .500 record gets in.

    This year we have....
    68 NCAA teams ( Iowa State ),
    32 NIT teams ( UNI, Iowa ),
    16 CBI teams ( including Pitt, Washington State, Oregon State and TCU )
    32 CIT teams ( Drake )

    That's 148 teams in the post season

    Nobody really pays attention to the non-NCAA tourneys.

    The Elite 8 is about the equivalent to your BCS bowls.

    Re: All 4 Iowa Teams make Post Season

    So 58 % of football teams "really" make the post season but only 20% of basketball teams "really" make the post season?

    Define postseason? 68 basketball teams get a shot to play for a national championship compared to 2 football teams.

    Re: All 4 Iowa Teams make Post Season

    I count the NIT as making the post-season.

    The CIT/CBI doesn't count. If you have to pay to play in a generic tournament with almost zero media coverage you didn't "make" anything.

    At least the Hawks are playing on ESPN tonight. That's respectable.

    Agreed with that. There's a reason a lot of teams wont even consider involvement with the CIT\CBI.

    It's to the point where if a college basketball team doesn't make it to any form of post season play (or at least be offered the opportunity), it was a pretty sad year for those teams.
