I would also be fine, if they said no and moved on to next season. I could see Majerle wanting to do this, but I think GCU's president would not turn down a chance to host a game or two in GCU arena. Or, maybe he's tired of paying the fee... Who knows really. Can't wait till next November!

Vegas 16 definitely has the potential to be and I think they will get there soon enough. They need to focus almost soley on western schools right now.

This year, invite:
(Presumably all schools in conference with better records will get NCAA/NIT bid)

2 P12:
Utah
Washington State
Arizona State
Colorado
Stanford

And the rest pull a mix of:
BYU
San Francisco
Santa Clara
UC-Davis/UC-Irvine
Anyone in MWC but AF or UNLV (unless you really dont care about team quality and go for UNLV)
NMSU/CSUB
Seattle U
Utah Valley
Eastern WA
Weber St
Idaho
Montana
Montana State
Portland State
Denver


Get fans there, get the tournament looking better and making more money, and you have something

The consensus seems to be that these Power 5 conference schools have no interest in playing in any tournaments not NCAA or NIT. So I don't see the P12 schools or BYU entertaining any of those tournaments.

CBI gets high major schools every year. But we will see about Vegas 16.

High majors in the 8 CBIs:

Oregon State
Pittsburgh
Oregon
Washington State
Stanford
Virginia
Purdue
Texas A&M
Penn State
Virginia
Colorado
Texas
Cincinnati (even though I say AAC is high major now, went while member of Big East)
Washington

Not in 2016. Nevada was the biggest name school. They are on the rise under Musselman, but I they are not a Power 5 school, nor really a high mid major school. 2015 you had Colorado.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get GCU in a tournament with ASU! I don't actually think Dr. Crow would ever let it happen, probably forcing his staff to decline the invite to anything even involving GCU.

He can get away with it for one more year with V16 or other lower tournaments. No more running next year when we are talking NIT or NCAAs, though!

Yeah, the CBI has had problems getting P5 teams the last few years. I hope the CBI does not approach SU. Dollar needs to go.

Yep, i think the undeserved CBI bid last year is what saved his job. But we have a new AD now and we will see what direction she wants to go. I wish Dollar well and hope he rejoins Romars staff at his new school while "resigning" from SU.

Ran into a GCU assistant at the Region 18 Juco Tournament last night and he said that they will be in the CIT but will not be hosting 1st round because the students will be gone. JFYI

I think ASU would beat GCU by double digits.

ASU is terrible this year. I've been to some games and they didn't impress me much.
