Hofstra runs the table!

Most likely!

I just hope Cincy somehow loses in the opening round to get everyone to shut the living hell up.

The teams that usually do well in the NIT are not the Hofstra (mid-major) or Cincys (big-school snub). It's the big conference schools that fall into one of 3 categories: A) Team that played really well toward the end of the year but was not a snub. Just not good enough overall to get in. B) A solid big con school that isn't great but will really appreciate the opportunity to be in the NIT. C) Good team that will have home court all the way to the MSG. This could be a mid-major though generally a mid-major won't have home court all the way through.

Category A = South Carolina. This is my pick to click in the NIT.
Category B = Rutgers or Penn State. Winner of this game could do some damage.
Category C = Any of your number 1 seeds but Louisville really fits this spot well because they are not a snub like Cincy or Michigan and they ended hot unlike Maryland (those are your other 3 1-seeds.) Like Maryland as well though.
