Lets go Rockets! Let's navigate this gambit!

Created a bracket with a little of our own flair:

Makes no sense- Green Bay was on the list of last 4 out- yet they are a 4 Seed and Illinois is a 2 Seed.

The NIT has a pathetic committee.
Shows how much the NIT cares about the Mid Majors at all.
Who cares...they would have to beat another 1 seed if they are the best anyways. So they'll have to beat a 5 seed then a 1 seed to prove themselves. Most of these teams are pretty dang close in tallent. UWGB lost to EMU, they aren't world beaters.

You completely missed the point.

No I get it....like it's a travesty Illinois got the 2 and they don't really deserve it, but they are from the big 10 so they always get the better seed, UWGB should be a 1 seed blah blah blah.

I agree with a lot of it, but the NIT can be political. They aren't the NCAA tourney. You either play post season ball or you don't. They choose who to invite, unless you won the regular season. UWGB won the regular season, and were guaranteed the invite. They blew their conference in the semi's and now are in the NIT. Illinois upset MSU, Minnesota, and Iowa this year, and lost to Michigan by 1 in the quarters of a good basketball league. Illinois is a pretty good team....I don't think it's clear who the better team is and actually I think Illinois is better and would beat UWGB. Illinois is the one playing a road game.
Illinois chose to play the road game. We'll see if Illinois is in fact decent. Most pretty good teams don't lose 8 straight games.
I understand they choose who they want and at the end of the day they stack the deck to make it so the bigger schools will win in hopes of having a bigger crowd in NYC.

I just don't think its fair- but fair isn't a term used in the NCAA.

When you play a ranked team once a week, it's still good to come out 17-14. WMU lost to a Northwestern. OU lost to Ohio State.

I thought I heard somewhere is that Illinois is starting major renovations to their arena and that's why they are on the road.
