Chatty snubbed by NIT

Postby woffordgrad94 on Sun Mar 15, 2015 9:20 pm

I am a bit surprised. I guess too many automatic bids from teams that won their regular season conference title but lost in their conference tournament kept them out.

Interesting that Charleston Southern got in and not Chattanooga. Actually it's too bad for the conference.

Wasn't Chuck South the Big South regular season champs?

Yes. They had an NIT autobid.

Apparently, Mercer is in the CBI. Wonder if Chattanooga denied a bid somewhere? Doesn't seem likely, IMO.

Looking at the CBI field, it looks as if a lot of programs turned them down.

They may have asked for early commitments-see USC Upstate. If Chatty was asked for a commitment but thought they would get an NIT they had a decision to make. It is interesting that the SOCON seems to be snubbed, because Mercer and Chatty deserve to be playing above lots that have been asked. The future of SOCON basketball seems pretty bright, and we need to be given more respect. Then again, if the schools will schedule some tougher early season opponents they may get more respect (see UVa). However, that said. Duke plays a lot of games in the metro NY/NJ area that count as road games, and we all know they are playing in front of home crowds.

Are you suggesting a bunch of Yankees go to Duke?

Never. The quota is pegged at 60% so it doesn't get out of hand.

Never thought for a minute the Mocs would go to the NIT. RPI is in the 100s. 68 go to NCAA 32 to NIT. Numbers don't add up. Mocs turned down other bids...did not want to pay to play...It was known by about Wednesday or Thursday there were no more games.
