No Minnesota listed, so that confirms it was a single game.  Same with NC State, which we kind of figured.

I don't know if we can really confirm that off a tweet from a writer who's had his head up the cardinal's a$$ for the better part of March and uses about 1% of his professional energy covering the Billikens.

St. B and St Joe's in 2021 MTE's.

What reason does St. Joes keep getting invited to these besides their market size?

This is just an opinion but I feel like they’re a crappy team right now, but they still have national notoriety. So it’s an easy win for most of the teams, but people still know the name.

Dammit, once again foiled in my hopes to see the Bills in this tourney. They always have a great field. Well, I can hope they get in the Myrtle Beach Classic. They usually have a good filed as well. I just don't understand why we can't get an invite. It usually has  SEC, Beast, ACC, A10, and a Big 10 team. I always figured they concentrated on EC teams that would attract tourists to Charleston. Seein Bosie St in there rather than us, really ticks me off. I normally get tickets because of the quality teams they bring in, but I'm gonna boycott it until they bring in the Bills. Good for St. B's. They could really rack up some serious NET points if they win this thing. 7 teams in that field could be top 50 squads.

Assuming we will draw San Diego State in the Mountain West Challenge, they will be formidable next season. 

I don't think it changed.

Keeping my fingers crossed for the Myrtle Beach Classic. C'mon, May and Travis, get 'er done. Up until we got the Orlando bid last year, I thought we might be on some pre season black list. Until then, which of course was cancelled, we were like an afterthought for these tourney committees. The Bahamas would have been a nice one to get into.

I hope you are right, but all I have seen is the following:

The parameters of the Atlantic 10-Mountain West Challenge remain the same with 10 institutions (20 total teams) from each conference facing off in early December, five at A-10 arenas and five at Mountain West venues. The challenge is a two-year agreement with an option to extend.

That doesn't say much to me except yes, 10 A10 teams and 10 MW teams will be in it.  The powers that be may want to reshuffle the deck.   Who knows.

They have announced 3 teams I believe: Alabama, Iona and Kansas. That leaves 5 spots I think. 

It sounds like they are only accepting applications from schools with big name coaches.  Hopefully, Coach Ford's Q rating is high enough for them.

Nate Oats is big name now?

Maybe not a big name, but a 2 seed this year and a top 5ish team next year
