    Longhorns to CBI?

    Cougars, Longhorns to meet in College Basketball Invitational | Cougars | a Chron.com blog


    Several of my friends in Houston pointed me to this blog. Not sure how accurate it is/ will be.

    Embarrassing for Texas, if true.

    I'm so glad Iowa State never played in that garbage during the lean McDermott years.

    Didn't there used to be a rumor that the Big12 wouldn't let their schools participate in the CBI?

    Re: Longhorns to CBI?

    Is it honestly worth participating in though? Doesn't it usually costs the schools money?

    CBI Bracket 2013: Texas headlines the field - SBNation.com


    The Texas Longhorns headline the field, and they will face the Houston Cougars in the first round. The winner of that game will face the winner of the Charleston Cougars against the George Mason Patriots in the quarterfinals.

    Now we need an official CBI thread if UT is in it.

    Re: Longhorns to CBI?

    If you have a young team, it makes sense to play this as it gets them tournament experience. Just look at the 2 big conference teams in it, Texas and Purdue. Both are very young teams.

    This is Texas. You're forgetting who runs the conference.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    How big is the CBI trophy? I thought programs lost money participating.

    Re: Longhorns to CBI?

    It kinda makes sense for them. Their young players will get to play more basketball and they will get to play on a neutral court because no fans will be there. I don't think it is that embarrassing when most people probably won't notice.
