NIT: curse or opportunity?

NIT: curse or opportunity? 


We have been reading about the inability of the preseason NIT being unable to attract enough teams to honor the original commitment to the number of home games guaranteed in the original package. Will this situation turn out bad for the Toppers or will we end up in MSG with a first round win? In my eyes it could turn out well for us. Exposure in NY on the national stage could be easier than in the original format. Guess we will see.

So what is going on exactly to where they could not get 16 teams? I thought they already had 16 set teams? ANd if not why are programs backing out of it? Preseason NIT is still I thought a pretty well known in season tournament...Confused by all of the trouble with this tournament...

It's not going to be good.... We will have a road game then two games somewhere but not NY


And besides NY and exposure means nothing to recuriting and NCAA selection.

If that is true then that is really sorry.  It is by definition not a tournament if the winners don't necessarily advance.
