Unsurprising an asshat Cal-hater like Goodman would tweet garbage like that, however.
Couldn't agree more.
Even with an expanded NCAA tourney, it isn't as if the winner of the NIT should be considered the 69th best team in the country, as several quality teams will still miss out.
While it may not may not mask the disappointment of this season - not that I'm telling UK fans how to feel (please, don't take it this way) - the opportunity to end the season winning a final game should account for something.
That stated, I agree with WV Red that UK may well qualify for the NCAAs.
