My guess is that Memphis gets the only invitation from the AAC but it's going to be close. I count at least 14 teams with a better resume than ours but it could come down to whether blue bloods like Duke and Kentucky get invited instead of SMU

Not making the big dance is an annual and utter disappointment. But I'm happy to see our guys play for something.

It's not the NCAA tournament, but in the last 25+ seasons we have only had a better outcome 2 other times with NCAA bids and are tied with 3 other seasons as NIT teams so I guess we should celebrate.

Now that we are playing on Thursday, will everyone be back, and healthy - Yor Anei? Feron Hunt (ankle)?

That's the magic question, i.e., what team will SMU be able to put on the floor against Boise State?

Any post season invitation is a plus for this program. Tough draw having to play Boise 1st and would advance to possibly play Memphis in a rubber match.

Surprised that Cinci didn't get an invite.

Just one more humiliation and this season will be mercifully over. Don't despair, there will be plenty more to come - November is not that far away.

It’s humiliating enough having you as a “fan.”

Thankful for the chance to play at least one more.

He's not a fan. Just an obsessed frog disappointed in their season.

It's exciting to see some forward progress in the program with a postseason bid!

Pods of 2 seats seemed to sell our pretty quickly. Plenty of pods of 4 seats still available. Tickets are only $20

I am sure they are looking at the final score in our game and thinking "that's not fair, it wasn't that close." - a bigger margin of victory in that game like they should have had would have made it a lot harder for the NIT to take us over them.
