I guess it's cool when you make the All-Time CBI Team, but it's almost like being named to the all-time list of best non-medalists in Olympics history. It does seem kind of sad when you make the team because of how well you played in two different CBI tournaments, like that dude with the eye-chart last name from Siena.
The other night, I was actually watching a little of the Wyoming-Coastal Carolina first game in the best-of-27 series finals the CBI insists on playing when, out of nowhere, they bust out a clip of the '11 final at Oregon when AY got called for an over and back while he was trying to set up a final shot in a tie game. He stared at the ref in disbelief and then looked down at his feet to see if he could find a trace of that phantom ten-second line on that super-gimmicky, ridiculous camo court they had. (If he'd had a flashlight, a magnifying glass and a special Oregon Ten-Second Line map, he still wouldn't have had any luck finding it). And, of course, we lost on the very next possession. I still have a hard time cheering for Oregon because of that (and b/c they've sold their soul--or maybe it's sole--to Phil Knight and Big Gym Shoe and turned themselves into a showroom for Nike's latest products. C'mon, Ducks, pick a uniform and stick with it. At least, for a game or two).
What was sort of funny about that damn clip they showed was that superimposed on the screen was a prominent graphic that clearly said "Creighton Bluejays, 2011 CBI Champions". Nice to see the CBI also has CBI production values.
