The two tourneys need to be condensed to one tourney...of only 16 teams. Have the Final Four in Biloxi, Charleston, NOLA, Myrtle Beach. The arena only needs to be about 5k. It should emphasize on Midmajors and low majors.

The nit should just expand to 64 and eliminate these things

That would be another solution...a chance to invite more small teams.

What an embarrassment it'd be for the the NIT to do that and not have enough teams.

That wouldn't happen...the NIT is owned by the NCAA now. Teams would go...you might have an occasional team say no (like LSU last year) but expenses are covered and many of the games are on ESPN/2/U

Four 16 team pods by region. Makes too much sense. Then you could have a 8 or 16 team tourney for others that can't get into the NIT but still want to play.

Meh, unless the NIT was a second chance tournament as I and others have proposed, why would anyone care so much about how many teams are in the NIT?

I think the women's NIT has a great concept. The highest rated team from each conference not selected to the NCAA receives an auto bid.

That said, I still think smaller 4 and 8 team events in destination cities is a better path for the CIT/CBI type events.
