Yes, you can be the good little doormen of the conference like you already are.

Talk about class.


You're a trash play-in fan. Enjoy the offseason.

Remember, this is a program that hasn't been to the NCAA Tournament in 19 years, one that dedicated this run to SEVEN men who died tragically in a plane crash, including an assistant coach who was like a father to the two players who got dinged with technical fouls. If you can't understand the frustration, then you probably need a reality check.

When you deal with that kind of adversity and likely see the end of your dream come true, frustration will happen. Part of life. Just wondering if some of you have any clue. Have some perspective, like your coaching staff who handled today with pure class.



Amen! The Birds deserve a bid! NIT or NCAA go get em Birds.

If the Valley is going to be mostly a one-bid conference and if WSU is almost always going to get the bid, shouldn't the rest of the Valley wish WSU best of luck and hope for them to leave so the rest of us would at least have a NCAA chance. I love the fact that WSU has aspirations beyond the MVC. Just feel bad that the rest of us don't or more likely can't.

I just want to say that I decidedly do not think Muller is classless, nor do I feel that way about McIntosh. While the Redbirds and Shocker coaching staffs have had cold moments in the past, I wouldn't put that on Muller, other than...he is ultimately responsible for the team. It's easy to point out that several "incidents" have occurred under his watch without public/meaningful punishment, but I have always viewed his public demeanor as one of character. A little work needs to be done to keep his kids in check, but otherwise he's okay.

McIntosh exited poorly. Still all the respect for him. Brown had a bad foul yesterday. He shouldn't have gone there, but...it's great to see some of these young and talented kids want to compete! More players in this conference need to stand up and say that they are tired of losing! I hope his attitude is focused in a more sportsmanlike way.

Not a Hawkins fan.

I don't think that is true. Not all conferences have 2nd place finishers that qualify. The NIT just invites the programs that are deserving that weren't invited to the NCAA Tournament. There is no doubt that the Redbirds are deserving of either an NCAA or NIT bid. We will not receive any other bids to the NIT.

Pretty sure that all Regular Season conference champs that don't make the NCAA tourney automatically get invited to the NIT. Not sure how they treat conferences that have a tie. But technically I believe they should get an automatic invite as they were co-champs

ISU has an automatic bid to the NIT as the regular season champion who got the 1 seed for the conference tournament.

They'd be good enough for an at-large bid to the NIT if they needed it, obviously.

The only regret is that Illinois' run means they won't be a low enough seed to be forced to travel to ISU in the tournament.
