    ISU possibly to CBI?

    Per Sean Keeler's twitter.

    SeanKeeler (SeanKeeler) on Twitter

    A spokesman from the CBI said they haven't talked with Iowa State, but the 15-16 Cyclones are 'a program we're looking at.' Hmm.
    Hadn't seen this posted anywhere. What are everyone's thoughts of getting some post-season play? Albeit at the CBI tourny.

    Hey, any game experience we can get is good, plus it would allow us to practice longer.

    I'd take it.

    It will be another thing GMac has done that neither JO, TF, LE, or WM did (take that haters....LOL)

    Bring on the CBI!

    Re: ISU possibly to CBI?

    So does this mean we should still be holding onto our 09-10 parking passes? lol

    We'd be a decent choice from a revenue\attendance standpoint. Even with our recent attendance drop, we still bring out a lot more attendance than similar-record schools would.

    Re: ISU possibly to CBI?

    I've heard from previous threads that the Big 12 discourages teams from participating. Same with the Big 10. Don't know if that's true though. Also, by looking at the two previous and only years, no Big 12 or Big 10 teams have played in the CBI.

    Re: ISU possibly to CBI?

    I believe to make the CBI, like the NIT, you need a .500 record or better. That would mean we would have to go 2-1 in the Big XII Tournament (make the semi-finals) and that would be take a miracle.

    Re: ISU possibly to CBI?

    To answer my own question, Oregon State was in the field last year at 13-16. So I guess record isn't overly important, as long as you're CLOSE to .500.

    And the games are held at participant's venues.

    Re: ISU possibly to CBI?

    Also, it appears that the championship is held on a 3-game series basis. Interesting. One game at one team's venue, one at the other, then back to the first for the decisive Game 3 if necessary.

    The first couple/ maybe few round are played at the actual schools. Towards the end I think their is a best of 3 game series to see who wins the entire thing, where that is held at I'm not sure.

    Yes, more practice never hurts.

    IMO the CBI is more for the mid-majors that don't get in but have a good record. I think major conferences shy away from that tournament. I know Michigan has said they are not interested and they are below .500 right now. I don't think they would come out and say that if they hadn't even qualified yet.

    OK, thanks for clarifying. I would say if we beat Texas they would want us. IMO we should take it because of the practice.
