    Stumbled into this site, instead of working... Don't know how much stock to put into this random website, but we've gone crazier over less.

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    They will want a few teams from the Big 12. It's about $$$. Doesn't matter who we beat (rankings) we just need to finish like 7 or 8. So that would put us on the bubble like a few other teams in conf.

    God I hate NIT.

    We will be lucky to win two more for a 15 win total unless someone pulls a rabbit out of their hat. If we could just beat out Oakland for a spot.

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    NOBODY....I will repeat..........NOBODY watches the NIT. Seriously, how many times have you seen games on in March and been like.....hmmm I think I'll watch this NIT game over this NCAA game.

    No, don't even respond, you know I'm correct.

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    I think they typically don't play games at the same time as NCAA tourney, for obvious reasons.

    The NIT really gets a bad wrap, imo. People complain about 6-6 bowl teams and 34 bowl games (68 teams out of 120 - 56.6%) but it seems the NIT is supposed to be more shameful than something like the Insight bowl. With the NIT and NCAA that is 97 teams out of 334(?) for 29%.

    The other two (if both are still going this year) water it down even further though. I think the main thing with the NIT is that you use it for experience and don't hang banners in the rafters if you win the thing or if you make the "final 4".

    An NIT-ology website? Like someone actually cares? How would you like to try to sell "banner ads" for that website?

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    Who cares? Honestly...who cares? More experience for next year? Ummm...not really...if we even make the NIT we will be relying on our two best players that most likely will not be here. I just can't get excited at all about the possibility of ISU playing in the NIT.

    What is sad though is that we are on the "bubble" of making the NIT...can't even get to that level!

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    As posted above, I think making the NIT would be more prestigious than making the Insight Bowl. Did you care about that?

    Obviously it's not what we were hoping for at the start of this season, but I think if we were to string together a nice run with the home games we've got coming up after KU, we would stand a chance at getting into the NIT. Which I would be happy with. Not NCAA happy like I was expecting, but I remember being pretty stoked the year we made it to the NIT final 4 in New York.

    NIT is still fine- better than no post season. But NIT bubble??!!! That's a bit humiliating.

    Just because were in the Big 12 doesn't mean that were in. The completely restructured the NIT a couple years ago. For example, mid major teams get automatic bids if they win there regular season confernce championship.
    imo we have to get at least five more wins to get in.

    Re: We're on the NIT Bubble!!

    Looking at the NIT from last year, the worst record of any team that made the field was 2 games over .500. That was Georgetown and Washington State.

    In order for us to stay 2 games over .500 we will either have to finish 4-3 from here out or finish 3-4 and win 2 games in the B12 tournament.
