re: Vlad's NIT Analysis for LSU

Southern Miss is probably in the NIT ahead of us, but it would be best if Memphis wins tourney

Montana won which is good for us but Weber St.'s probably in the NIT anyway. At least they're not another autobid.

Go for NMSU now. If they lose, they don't get auto bid (thanks Tech) but have a good rpi and many project them ahead of LSU. They win, it mitigates damage done from the WAC (thanks Tech).

re: Vlad's NIT Analysis for LSU
I hear Tech is going to decline the NIT invitation and wait for the NCAA tourney to call...


Anyway, I count 15 autobids -- 8 NCAA autobids and 7 NIT autobids -- going to schools with less than a 100 RPI. 100 is a magic number because you add 68 NCAA teams plus 32 NIT teams and you get 100, right?

So anyway, with 15 getting in with sub-100 RPIs (as of Saturday night), that means the cutoff to get an at-large into the NIT would be an RPI, of, roughly, 85.

According to real-time RPI, LSU is at 83, for what that's worth.

As for the schools with below 100 RPI with auto bids, according to RealTime:
NCAA
Albany (143)
James Madison (181)
Liberty (288)
Long Island (175)
North Carolina A&T (224)
Pacific (105)
Southern (184)
Western Kentucky (152)

And in the NIT:
Mercer (136)
Northeastern (159)
Robert Morris (124)
Charleston Southern (190)
Niagra (127)
Norfolk State (177)
Long Beach State (113)

So one would think LSU is sitting pretty right now as a 6 seed, roughly the No. 23 team in the 32-team NIT field.

re: Vlad's NIT Analysis for LSU
There are 10 NIT autobids. Could have been worse. I think we're in good shape, but just my opinion, man.
