Tigers NIT appearance is similar to..

football wise appearing in the Belk Bowl, Independence or other lower tier bowl game. Kind of like the ones the coots appear in regularly.

Clemson men's basketball has a lot of similarities to the chicken's football success. That's not a good place to be. We should expect more than that from our basketball coach.

The Belk Bowl may not be a New Year's Bowl, but it isn't a bad place to be (except the years it is 40 and raining). At least we have all the comforts of home in the first round(s) of the NIT.

Yeah, it is just like UVA getting invited to the Belk Bowl. You go, blow out the coots, and get ready for the next season.


you may think it feels that way but it’s

Apples to oranges to me. Roughly 67% of FBS make a bowl game. All you have to have is a .500 record. 28.8% of basketball teams make the NCAA and NIT combined and you typically have to be well above .500 to have a chance of making it.

You mean like all the comforts of home we had in 2017 against Oakland University?

I like you and your posts, but no it is not better than sitting home. It's just more salt in the wounds this year.

but I think we’ll all be right there pulling for our Tigers if they make a run in the NIT.

*I like you and your posts as well.

Many good reasons to. Play in the nit. NO reason not to play in the nit.

Other than it being meaningless and just an exhibition at best. If I were a senior with pro aspirations I wouldn't even risk the injury.

fun to watch. The year we got beat at the buzzer by Cal in the NIT championship. I was on the edge of my seat jumping up and down like it was the final four. I guess if you're a Clemson fan it makes a difference.

it is like getting into state college when your friends' moms all bribed the admissions board to get into the ivy league schools.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.
