Sucks that Cornell had its worst offensive game of the season in the biggest moment -- and credit to Yale for playing a large role in that. Still looking for our first ILT win.

Now waiting to see if the school wants a bid to the CBI or CIT.

Several high majors are turning down their NIT invites. Ironic considering the NCAA is bending over backwards to help them.

I hope Cornell gets an NIT bid and think there's a good chance.

And Cornell got in. Congrats. Happy to see Earl and the best Big Red team since 2010 get to play quality postseason hoops.

Maybe they should thank Pitino for rejecting his.

Looks like St. John's, Pitt, Oklahoma and Memphis turned down invites.

And Cornell has the worst KenPom ranking (103) of anyone in the NIT.

Understood that there are other criteria, including the aforementioned conference record to be eligible, but Cornell should send flowers to Pitino and the others for turning down a bid.

Penn Nation, we can always count on you to harsh on other people's buzz. It must really suck to inhabit the world you do.

I'm actually quite happy for Cornell.

Brown was literally one second away from dancing--and now it gets zippo.

Cornell gets to keep on playing.

PN has been that way for a long time. He/she loves to rain on others’ parade. Might have something to do with suffering for at least for years in Philly.

Actually, I saw two Penn Ivy basketball titles when I was a student there.

Even better, there were zero Princeton titles.

Consider again the following button, after logging in:
