Are You NIT OR CBI??
.....or if neither, SOL?? Anyway, for years I have called the NIT the "Not Invited Tournament", of course meaning Not Invited (to the NCAA) Tournament. Now the braintrust of all things college basketball has created something called the College Basketball Invitational, or as I am now going to call: "Cannot Be Invited Tournament" If you're not invited to the NCAA or the NIT, is it really worth being invited to anything else? Apparently so; therefore, you cannot be invited to either.
