Probably not, but I'm not sure either an NIT or CBI invite would be accepted. 

I doubt we make NIT and my assumption is Miles is fired after they lose in the B1G Tourney so any invite would be rejected most likely. 

 

I honestly think the only way they play any post season is by winning the B1G. I think they are too far in the hole to even make the NIT.

I don't think an NIT invitation is out of the question if the beat Rutgers on Wednesday.  Their NET is 52, they are 45 at KenPom, 36 in ESPN's BPI with a SOR of 58 so the computer numbers are good enough.  I'm not sure they'd accept a bid, but it could come.

Because you don't fire your coach and go to the NIT. We'll decline. 

Is there a precedence for this?

 

 

As a season ticket holder Id just like to see these guys continue to play in any capacity regardless of the coach.

NIT is looking pretty good right now. Probably still have to win the BIG to get in the Dance but who knows?

Is there a Husker basketball fan who wouldn't go to a NIT game at the PBA at this point? That's what the NIT wants, a full arena.

Even with the awful year Nebrasketball had, it is crazy to actually look at their resume.

 

I honestly dont think they get in unless they win the B1G Tournament, but it is crazy to think that if they would have just won two more games in League play, they would have been 8-12... That would have tied them with Ohio State and Indiana(both bubble teams).

 

If they beat Wisconsin, they are at 19 wins. I still think it is crazy to discuss the tourney with how bad this team was in that stretch(2-11).

 

Who knows. I still dont think it happens for us but I am enjoying these last two games. 

 

That all said, Regardless of what happens(outside a tournament bid and win) I still think we need to move on from Miles. I would then turnaround and hire him to do radio or something :)

Since it seems like an NIT invite might be plausible at this point....

 

Not going to get to 22 but at least we're finishing strong.

If we wouldn't have pooped the bed against Rutgers and Illinois....

 

Of course, that would have changed our seeding in the tournament so who knows how that would have changed as well.  We'd have one less win at the least (wouldn't have played on Wednesday) but....

Well weren't we the first Power 5 conference team with 22 wins last year and not make the tourney.  It would be interesting to be on the positive result this time for making a first.

A year ago...needed one (or at least one or more) B1G tourney win to make it to the dance due to schedule strength. This year, I don't know what to think after the last week. A win vs Wisconsin today and it keeps getting interesting. I think the NIT is the future for this team and a week or two ago I thought no way.

 

Funny thing, I live in Indiana and the ridiculous Hoosier fans are wanting Archie gone and thinking IU will decline an NIT invite because it is 'beneath' them. When I went to NU and visited KU for different things, it had the same feel of IU...entitlement, elitism 

 

GBR!

Unbelievable, with our ranking 2 more wins would of got us in. 

 

I know those Minnesota/Maryland losses... gut feeling on where we end up in the NIT? Really hoping for a two seed and at least one possibly two home games. But thinking we end up a 4/5 seed.

Add the game at Rutgers as games they should have won.
