    What do we need to do..(NIT)

    To get to the NIT? Is it even possible? Will 2 or 3 wins in the conference tourney get us even close?

    I don't pay much attention to that stuff, sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Re: What do we need to do

    We have to win at least 2 games in the Big XII tournament to even be eligible.

    Have to make conference tournament finals for them to even look at us.

    Re: What do we need to do

    I would guess 2 wins, but I don't know anything about getting into the NIT.

    Be glad to have it now, though.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I guess I dont think 3 wins is enough and 4 would mean NCAAs. So I guess Im not thinking NIT. I hope we do though

    What about the CBI? How does that work?

    Re: What do we need to do

    I don't think you have to have a winning record to get in the cbi so maybe one Big 12 tourney win gives us an outside shot. I'd gladly take a CBI bid at this point.

    Re: What do we need to do

    winning record and a financial guarantee from JP to the selection committee might get us in.

    Re: What do we need to do

    CBI only takes 16 teams, so that fills up fast.
    But I do like the format of the CBI. Single eliminations followed by best of 3 (i think, I could be a bit off on this and I have been enjoying the victory tonight with a few drinks)

    Are you serious? Great win tonight...about damned time...very glad to see it. But don't let your euphoria of the evening overshadow the fact that this season has been an abomination.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    No one said we are going to make the NIT. He was asking how could we make it.

    Thanks again for gracing us with your presence after a great win.

    Good lord you are incredible. He was just asking a freaking question. He even added the little bit about it maybe being a stupid question.

    Try being happy for once. I'd think it would suck being angry all the time.

    Re: What do we need to do

    Did anyone have any info on the way CBI makes their selections?
    I guess if I get around to it tomorrow I'll check out the records of the teams that got selected the first two years of their tournament.
