    For Power 6 conference teams, an NIT invitation is a wild card.

    Some teams play hard and try to win. Others (eg. Indiana 2017) treat an invite with the mindset that Hinkle describes. My hope is that the Dawgs would take an NIT bid as an opportunity to avenge a disappointing season. After four straight NCAAT appearances and a 5-4 record there, my fear is that they will feel it is a throw-away consolation prize and play without energy.

    I agree with what you are saying. My point wasn't about winning the NIT, or even winning another game. It was that being in any post season tournament allows more days of organized practices and more time to develop and grow.

    Obviously making the NIT is not the ultimate goal but to me I’d much rather see Butler make the NIT than nothing. You still have to earn your way into the NIT unlike the CBI. Plus, it could be another opportunity to get to Hinkle for more game(s) which is always a good thing to me. Agree with Willis that the team likely needs to go 5-4 the rest of the way to get to 8-10 to secure a bid.

    That would make me even more frustrated with the staff if they can't get kids motivated for the NIT.

    They are not very good anymore... Cartee Gordon already transferred so you can see it's a **** show over there. That'll turn out to be maybe our worst loss

    I think he's safe for now due to recruiting success. Their season was in big trouble when Darius Garland went down for the year. He was a huge piece.
