That actually sounds more realistic to me. I knew there was a reason I took anything from wikipedia with a grain of salt.

As far as the financial aspect, it's a huge part of the decision process, but I think they should be looking long-term as well. If they truly think it will help the program move forward more quickly, then they should do it.

Ultimately, I wouldn't mind seeing the guys play some more this season, but it's not something that's going to upset me if it doesn't happen.

Sometimes the payoff is for the future - more practice and more games = more experience for next season and more ticket sales next year and maybe an NCAA bid. It's not like we're hurting for money.

We should get a CBI invite. Beat Va Tech and our Gamecock brothers although that's not saying much this year but our Gamecocks did finish strong.

We have as many wins against power conferences as Wichita State and scheduled twice as many games against power conferences than did Wichita State did....

I know you're in no way shape or form comparing upstate to an undefeated 1 seed in the NCAA tourny.

Wichita State just became the Boise State of college hoops, Tennessee is their best win this season. Their body of work doesn't warrant a 1 seed, all I am saying at least Upstate will go schedule power conferences more so than 1 who will schedule a cupcake OOC. Hopefull WSU gets the boot early.

WSU made the Final 4 last year and from what I gathered brought back most of their team. Why people don't think they are legit is beyond me. Now, that bracket they got is brutal, but they are a darn good basketball team.

^I'm not saying they wouldn't smoke us I am just saying we actually scheduled a tougher OOC than them. Last years performance in the Dance has no bearing on what happened this season, using that mentality FGCU should be in the Dance this year because they danced their way to the Sweet 16 last year. WSU to me going on the resume they do not warrant a 1 seed, a bona fide 2 yes, a

For the team, yeah, I agree with you. I've been on record stating that I would like them to play more games. The more I think about it though, I don't want to get a bid if it's to the detriment of the athletic department as a whole. If Tanner can justify taking a hit for the tournament, then by all means let's go if they offer us a bid.

Having a strong MBB program is good for the department as a whole, even if we'd lose a little bit of money by playing in the CBI. Getting this young team more playing and practice time would be awesome, and who knows, we might win the darn thing.

I'm sorry guys, any sub .500 team does not belong in any post season tournament. It was a good finish and gives something for them to build on, but a 20 loss team need not play any more this year.

Go tell that to Brenton. Why do they not belong to a tournament that is designed for sub .500 teams? More games can only help this team build for the future.

Oh well, season is over. A&M is in there though, so apparently no unwritten rule about SEC teams.

I guess the extra play would be good for a young team, but I honestly feel like we should just call it a season and focus efforts on some recruiting.

Not sure if dragging out the season would truly be a benefit, but that's why Tanner and the coaching staff are paid for these type of decisions and not us.
