1) Seeding

2) Automatic bid to the NIT to the regular season champ.

If people don't think that's enough reward, they should say so. But phrasing the question as if no reward exists strikes me as disingenuous.

It's not disingenous in the least.

It looks like a big deal to you because Dartmouth has never sniffed the tournament in modern memory and any post-season play would be a thrill.

(Holtsledge, why am I drawn into this crap?)

Sparman (unlike others) actually adds substantive discussion to the board.

The auto-bid to the NIT speaks for itself. Princeton's season was going to continue no matter what the results were this weekend. The others-- probably not.

As for seeding, in theory, the #1 seed should have an easier time with the #4 seed than the #2 & #3 seeds have with each other. Indeed, I don't think Princeton played particularly welly today. Harvard or Yale might have knocked them off. But they played a weak Penn team and survived to fight another day.

I'm sure Henderson told his team afterwards that they got to do a lot better if they hope to win another game. We will find out whether the Tigers got the message.

So please--let's end the talk that there's "no reward" for winning the regular season. Saying that the regular season champ needs more reward is another story...

NCAA is not equal to NIT. At least, not for Princeton, and probably for Penn, Harvard and Yale.

I'm out.

That there's not ENOUGH reward for winning the regular season.

Stop arguing that there's NO reward for winning the regular season.

This is NOT a difficult concept.

Sure, NIT is not NCAA. But NIT is not nothing.
