Small Pleasures

Baylor, somehow, is heading to the finals of the NIT (yeah, I know, the sparest of spare tournaments) by beating San Diego State tonight. But it's a little hard to believe. Take a look at how horribly the regular season ended only to have some type of divine intervention alter the team once post-season play began. Now if New York City, where the tournament is being played, doesn't corrupt those good Baptist boys before the final on Thursday night, we'll be alright.

So, if they win the NIT, will you chant "We're number 66!"?

It is a fine accomplishment to win the NIT. Think of it this way: basically, only 2 of the best 100 or so D1 college basketball teams end the year with a win. EVERY ONE ELSE LOSES THEIR LAST GAME. Actually it could be only 2 out of all D1 teams, but there may be a conference that does not yet have a year-end tournament, and some conferences may not automatically include every team in a year end tournament...so there could be other teams that end their year with a regular season win.

So does the NIT champion get a trophy that says 66th place?

At least it won't be 666th place.

At least the caption is correct.
