    As a fan I actually do appreciate, and even watch, the NIT. You do get some really good games and match-ups that you wouldn't get otherwise. In fact I wish they'd expand it to 64 or even 80 teams. And it is a good opportunity for programs that are trying to build, or that had good years but don't play in major conferences.

    But it's not the NCAA Tournament. No one cares. It doesn't even really rise to the level of being an undercard. It's not even the opening act for the big band that everyone came to see. It's the cover band that's playing at the bar down the street from the stadium.
    The nit is really effing stupid imo. I compare it to the cheezit meineke car quest flamingo bowl. In other words, who gives a shit. Just my two cents.

    Big 10 may have been a little overrated.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Heck of a game, like Kansas State, Jerome Tang did awesome to compile that roster and they play some fun basketball. Almost thought we were about to have another classic Tom Izzo March deep run.

    Only good thing about UCLA vs. Gonzaga is that one of those teams is going to lose.
    We've come a long way since my bench seat at the Fieldhouse!

    Wisconsin just had it's worst game of the year. In the final 9 minutes they went 0-10FG 0-2FT and had 4 TO. Lost NIT semis game to North Texas. Score 54-56

    Did you also see the broken play in the closing seconds where Wisconsin had a potential game-tying shot and dumbass Greg Gard called a TO to allegedly set up something better?

    Only wish we saw them execute that poorly 7 years ago...

    Yeah, that was terrible. Got to believe that Gard’s seat is getting warm.
    And Drunk Andy Kennedy might win an NIT. Fun times

    Wisconsin did not score a single point in the last 9 mins of the game?!

    Over/under that Andy Kennedy gets drunk or high in Vegas after winning the NIT there..then blows all of his money bonus for winning at the Blackjack table.
    On the way back to his hotel, he assaults a Cab Driver.
