        What's wrong with Mizzou vs SLU ? Pressure from Mizzou not to play, maybe????

          Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

            I haven't seen the brackets but certainly Mizzou and SLU could be matched up later.

              Only one more embarrassment to endure this year.

                when do they usually announce brackets for the NIT?
                Are you on the list?

                  NIT Brackets

                  Missouri and SLU are on the top and bottom. They cannot meet until the final four at MSG. I am surprised SMS did not make it. Creighton and Wich St the only teams from the MVC.

                  SLU/Iowa plays the winner of Purdue/Notre Dame
                  Mizzou/Michigan plays the winner of LSU/Oklahoma

                    I believed they've at least announced that their tourney produces the 65th (or is it 66th or 67th, with the play-in game?) best team in the nation.

                      Funny you look at the teams there, and their records, Mizzou with a 16-13 almost looks like they don't belong there either.

                        SLU and Iowa--pretty good matchup. SLU gets the home game and on ESPN2 also. "Home" game in the sense that it is actually close to St. Louis--St. Charles Family Arena. I wonder about the security of Alford's job. Also wonder if Frericks can go for SLU. I know Iowa has good guards, but so does SLU. My guess is that Iowa will be a slight favorite.

                        No postseason for SMS--that sucks.

                        Missouri and Michigan--two Coach K proteges (Amaker and Snyder). Interestingly, both teams had a player plead guilty to assault for an incident last year (Clemons and Robinson). Both kept their player on scholarship, but Robinson didn't wreck an ATV at the U or M's President's house. Both also have had some recent experience with NCAA investigations (but I think Michigan's didn't have anything to do with Amaker). Gotta figure Michigan will be favored.
                        I'm always right.

                          I could care less who we play because the NIT sucks, but I'd much rather play Michigan than SLU. I'm sure most Mizzou fans would agree. The Snyder/Amaker story line is much bigger on a national scale than Mizzou/SLU would be.
                          Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                            I can always count on BurnKU for some good stuff when it comes to Missouri basketball.

                            Burn, yes, I agree the melodrama of Michigan v. Mizzou is more compelling than playing an in-state team. State schools with overrated programs from "major" conferences and NCAA violations are always big on a national scale.

                            No way was Missouri going to agree to play SLU. And frankly, I don't really care. That matchup doesn't mean that much to me. But I bet it did to the folks at Missouri.
                            I'm always right.

                              I don't exactly understand why FSU has to travel somewhere to play in the first round.
