On the Vine – Mar. 15, 2017

Joining hosts Peter Andrews and Mike Tony for a special Ivy League Tournament recap and NCAA Tournament preview edition of On the Vine are special guest Bobby Norell of One Foot Down (SB Nation’s Notre Dame site), and IHO writers Rob Browne and George Clark.

(Here’s Norell’s Princeton-Notre Dame preview for One Foot Down.)

The panel gets a detailed breakdown of Notre Dame’s team, season and program from Norell and then reflects extensively on the ups and downs of the inaugural Ivy League Tournament and the future of the tourney.

  1. No Ivy team selected for NIT or CollegeInsider tournaments (unless I missed something). In my opinion, both Yale and Harvard deserved invitations. Would appreciate any thoughts on this insult to the quality of Ivy League basketball.

    • It’s disappoing that that’s how it shook out. Per KenPom, Harvard was good enough this season to merit a No. 8 seed in the NIT, and in the future, I think we’ll see an Ivy in the NIT every year – or at least we should. The Ivy could very feasibly have four teams that play in nonconference postseason tournaments next season, which should yield a better overall top conference tier than this season.
