Terps deserve their NIT snub

March 15, 2011

Players on the Maryland men's basketball team have frequently bad-mouthed the NIT over the years, and I recall one player referring to the NIT as a banishment to hell. This may be a case of most of the team suffering for the bad manners of a few, but there you are and that's life.

I said to my wife and neighbor just yesterday, I would not blame the NIT if they didn't invite Maryland. If someone tells me I live in a lousy neighborhood and why don't I move, they needn't expect an invitation to my house. Nice to know that the NIT feels the same way. Good for them!
