They could also bow out in the first round.
Reminds me a bit of last season's UConn team.
Ya see this is where I differed quite a bit with the General's philosphy. He always maintained that he knew he had teams that would struggle in the NCAA and would be better served playing in the NIT. However, the University would never decline an NCAA bid. Getting beat in the first round can be a valuable learning tool, even better than the NCAA, if those players on the team return. I know both tournaments are differen than what they were 30 years ago but I feel elite programs should be where they got their elitenest(if thats a word) anything less is deemed as a failure amongst the players and the fans.
I really hope UK gets in........it should be a fun ride.
