The Gazelle Group Invitational (http://620wdae.com/cc-common/news/sections/sportsarticle.html?feed=104670&article=2932780)

College basketball will have another postseason tournament starting this coming spring, as the Gazelle Group has revealed plans for a 16-team event.

The College Basketball Invitational will feature teams not selected for the NCAA Tournament.

Another tournement for the Huskies, I guess :confused:

Honestly, I'd probably watch it for the novelty the first year, but unless it's really fantastic... I don't watch many NIT games. Why would I watch this thing?

I would almost be for it if there was a chance good, deserving but unlucky mid-majors (like last year's SCU team, for example) would be playing, but more than likely since there is no committee, it'll be a bunch of also-ran BCS teams up against each other - the best way to generate viewers/revenue is to target schools with big fan bases. So, when I'm hankering to see a big-time Iowa St-South Florida matchup this March, I'll know where to turn, I guess...

Post-season creep. Hopefully it ends with this silly experiment.
