    Any word on what time they'll announce the 16-team CBI field so we'll know who's playing for the right to say "We're No. 98"

    Why don't you put it together?

    Because I'm not in a position to do that. Just waiting to see if one of my teams that missed the NIT makes it or not.

    The first round starts Tuesday, so I imagine they will announce tonight -- assuming they can get 16 teams to play. I read somewhere that teams have to pay like $60K to host.

    Wait, are we talking about the real one or the SportsJournalists.com one?

    now who the fuck would want to do THAT?

    Hey! We're in the Las Vegas Bowl of college basketball tournaments! Let's pay $60K to host a single game!

    PS: Clever, the real one. Now apologize to EStreet.

    I think he's talking about the real one. Perhaps we should do a CBI. Hmm. ...

    Not apologizing. I'm on desk tonight. One of my teams was on the NIT bubble and missed. Now I'm waiting for our writer to file a story that will either be a year-ender or them making the tournament. First deadline is rapidly approaching and the writer can't file until he knows which way to go with the story.

    no no no I'm not saying you need to apologize. I'm saying clever needs to apologize for telling you to do it yourself (he thought it was the SJ CBI).

    I'm a dick, but not that much of a dick.

    I was thrown by the thread's placement on the Anything Goes board.

    My bad. I should have put it on the Sports & News board or the Journalism Topics board.
