    You get a trophy for being in the tourney?

    No, but you do get a free snowcone at the concession stand ...

    SI had a column in Inside Basketball a couple weeks ago that said it would ruin the event. Coach K. and other coaches want it because more major conference coaches can save their jobs by making the tournament, which is usually at least necessary for job retention, if not always sufficient.

    Poor CBI tournament. Who will be left to play in that prestigious tourney, Podunk Community College?

    Gee, Coach K, are you scared if a 13-17 team fires its mediocre coach it might hire a good one?

    Let's see. If there's 96 teams in the "Bigger" Dance, still a 32-team NIT field, and we have the CBI tourney ...

    Nope. Iowa still doesn't qualify for postseason play.

    Damn.

    It will still be pretty cool if your team makes the Final 6.
