    Will the tickets be available to non-season ticket holders?

  4. theconquistador2 Says:

    We’re actually able to host this tourney in Starkville? It must be operated differently than the last tourney we had to “host” in Birmingham?

  5. bigdraws Says:

    Last tourney we hosted was in Starkville. NIT two years ago.

  6. theconquistador2 Says:

    The NIT is not played on predetermined sites. I believe it’s considered a reward for the season much like hosting baseball regionals.

    Wasn’t it the Coaches vs Cancer tourney a few years ago that the NCAA made us host in Birmingham?

    Oh good lord.
