The 2016 NIT might be one of the better NITs in recent memory, given the bumper crop of brand-name teams and slew of Internet darlings participating in it.
Florida won two national championships this century! Ohio State played for one of the ones that Florida won! San Diego State has been an NCAA Tournament mainstay of late, produced budding NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard, and is coached by Steve Fisher, who won a national title with Michigan! Florida State might have two first-rounders on its roster!
And Monmouth is here! You love Monmouth, right?
Kidding aside, a muddle of teams with resumes not quite good enough for the 2016 NCAA Tournament and a rash of upsets in conference tournaments have left us with one heck of a 2016 Postseason NIT bracket, in which Monmouth, St. Bonaventure, South Carolina and Valparaiso are the No. 1 seeds.
And if you, for some reason, need a printable NIT bracket for the purposes of a truly special March Madness pool? Well, we have you covered if you click on those words that are red in the last sentence.
Will you take South Carolina to win it all, adding to the Gamecocks' two Postseason NIT titles this century? Will you set up an Alabama-BYU quarterfinal that would be weird on a football field?
The choice is yours, brave fan. The possibilities are endless.
