News should be coming soon

Just got off the phone with Mike from the Gazelle Group, who told me the field should be finalized by midnight. As soon as they have a bracket, they'll post it on their web site. 
All Mike knew about Rider was that the Broncs were under consideration. 
It has also been reported that Alabama declined a CBI bid, which opens at least one more spot. 
And it appears the Gazelle Group was unsuccessful in its attempt to persuade any teams to ditch the NIT in favor of the CBI.

If teams such as Alabama are turning down the invitation to the CBI, makes you wonder if it is really worthwhile to have this third tournament.

Add the fact that the Gazelle Group is taking this long to finalize a field of only 16 teams, and one has to seriously wonder whether this tournament will last beyond 2008.
