    In response to BisonRoadWarrior

  • BisonRoadWarrior Said:
On a radio/podcast interview, Notre Dame's Coach Brey said the Bison are coming to South Bend. For Walter Ellis, a prompt home visit/game at his father's alma mater.

Is this a recent comment by Brey, or the one discussed in this thread back in early January?

The reason I ask is that the ND event, although there was little information given, appears to be a multi-team event. And the Diamondhead Invitational in Hawaii is definitely a MTE. NCAA rules appear to restrict a team to one MTE in a season:

"An institution shall limit its total regular-season playing schedule with outside competition in basketball during the playing season to one of the following:

(a) 27 contests (games or scrimmages) and one qualifying regular-season multiple-team event per Bylaw; or
(b) 29 contests (games or scrimmages) during a playing season in which the institution does not participate in a qualifying regular-season multiple- eam event. "

Now it is possible that the ND event is not going to be an official MTE, although I doubt it because one purpose of a MTE is to allow teams to schedule more games. And it is possible that BU is allowed to play in it and not count it as their one MTE, although the rules seem to limit a team to one MTE per season. Another possibility is that BU, when presented with an unexpected last-minute invitation to the Hawaii event, asked ND if they could defer their participation in the ND event until 2019. You will recall that Brey said that he planned to run the ND event for at least two years, so a delay theoretically would be possible. And it might be easier to work out with Ryan Ayers on the ND staff.
