I don't subscribe to such a notion...to your point, he doesn't want to talk about the Washington win yet turns around and tells us in other threads how much of an accomplishment an NIT APPEARANCE is...

Again, my point wasn't to highlight or stick this in peoples face like SBU fans do every time they take a $%it...At the time of the win some looked at it with skepticism saying, how good can Washington really be? So as the results continue to roll in, the answer is...pretty good.

Re: UA's win @ Washington

NIT appearance is better than any regular season win. I would rather be the best regular season team in the AE than win 1 game against a bcs team. Maybe a top 25 team would be an exception. UVM did beat 14 ranked BC a few years back.

Re: UA's win @ Washington

Vermont fans are still talking about Syracuse, and how long has it been?

A lot of what you said makes sense, but the NIT appearance thing. Nobody plays for NIT spots.

Everybody plays for a national championship every year. With smaller conferences it starts with winning your conference championship. NIT appearance is rewarded for winning the regular season. While it's not your ideal ending it is still an accomplishment because it means you won the regular season.

You also dont play for regular season wins but you certainly will take them.

Fair enough. I thought you were going all Dayton fan on me.

I respect that answer.

I also respect Vermont as a program, partially because they came to St. Louis last year.

Yes, the UA win has turned out to be a great win for the Danes and the league.

Yeah, good post. Both are great accomplishments. I think the NIT bid, while obviously not what you are shooting for, is a good thing for mid major schools.

Re: UA's win @ Washington

In the AE, getting to the NIT is a bitter-sweet thing. You have to lose the tourney after winning the regular season in order to get there. And once you are there, nobody much cares except your fan base. Still, compared to the pointed stick....

The A10 is a different animal. The winner of the regular season for the A10 gets an at large big anyways. I can't see how it would mean anything to any A10 team.

Comes from a Dayton-Xavier pissing match (one of many) where UD thought their winning the NIT was better than Xavier going to the Sweet 16 and losing.

Re: UA's win @ Washington

It's amazing how "relative" things are. For some guys just looking at the SI swimsuit models is sufficient, but for a few only a week in Aruba will do.

I would say better than going 1 and done but sweet 16 is a joke.
