While watching some exciting NCAA action this weekend, and watching teams like VCU and Richmond make the sweet 16, it made me wonder, how many teams have made the NCAA tourney at least one of the past two years (a period which the Sooners have watched on TV). The answer? 95 different teams have made the NCAA tourney. Now some of those are conference champions that would never make it, like the SWAC champion.
So, let's take a look at the teams that were invited to the NIT or the CIT (College Insider Tourney). These teams generally don't earn their way, they're invited in. Here's the list of teams:
College of Charleston
East Tennessee State
Long Beach State
William and Mary
When it's all said and done, there are 166 teams that have managed to get a post-season invite to something in the last two years. OU is not one of them. That probably has more to do with Capel being fired than anything else.
