I'll always wish these CBI/CIT tourneys get perpetually ignored and all games wiped from teams' official records.

The CIT and the CBI can't be long for separate existence. All the major conference schools are done playing in the CBI, and if those tournaments are losing all the best mid-majors, not sure how they can survive as a home for UMBC vs St Francis.

The NIT is going to have more freedom with its participants. No wonder some will steer clear of this one.

As long as UMBC and St. Francis are willing to pay.

I don't think most AD's view them as a good use of resources. Half the teams invited are done by Thursday, so you really don't gain a lot of practice time. The reward players receive is either another home game or another road slog. Many of the games aren't televised.

I think you really have to give the schools some value and that means a neutral site destination location and television.

Instead of 16 teams they should be 4 or 8 team events (guaranteeing at least two games) scattered around and not played until at least a week after Selection Sunday.

The ESPN complex in Orlando would be perfect for an event.
