Auburn to the NIT

I can't say I'm surprised Auburn didn't make the NCAA tournament. They didn't do quite enough and I don't have a beef that teams like Arizona or Wisconsin got in over Auburn. We were close and it was a great run but it was too little too late. The Tigers get a #1 seed in the loser's bracket (AKA NIT) and can play their first 3 games at Beard-Eaves before going to Madison Square Garden. If they can put the disappoint behind them, I think they can make it there. This will be good practice time and competition for the younger Tigers. I hope they take it seriously and win 'em all (just don't hang an NIT banner in BEMC).

They hang NIT banners already. Not championship, just NIT participation banners...

Of course, if we didn't, the men's side would look pretty lonely against the women
