We all went through this last year. NCAA Tourney or bust, blah blah blah. So, no surprise, this language is coming out AGAIN! Remember, making the tourney from the Big Ten could mean finishing as low as 6th or 7th, nothing to brag about, but still an accomplishment, especially for this team/program/university.
So, when John Shurna said this again, I commended him for making it CRYSTAL clear to the fans, that anything but the NCAA tourney is a failure. So for all the Carmody fans out there who keep telling me that 3 straight NIT's is a huge accomplishment, I will point to this. ttp://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/colleges/post/_/id/3217/healthy-shurna-focused-on-nus-goal
