The NIT will now take just about anyone

We’re #65!

The NIT anounced criteria changes for its tournament today and now all regular-season conference champs not in the NCAA tourney will get a spot in the NIT. Also, a team no longer needs a .500 record to get into the tournament.

Just think, the NIT used to be the postseason tournament in the U.S. I have watched a lot of NIT games (this is what happens when your team stinks) and it’s so depressing. The schools put up a “hey, we’re here to win it” facade but you know most of the players from big time programs are not happy to be there. The worst part about winning the NIT is that… you won the NIT.
