Since kevinharbin is starting up his selection for the POY, Ill start the NNNIT selection.

Basically, I dont really care who makes it into this tournament, as long as he/she is a current/active poster. I had a formula to pick last years field, but one half of the criteria has been eliminated from the site.

This is where you all come in.

Help me select a field. Post who you think should be in the NNNIT. The only requirements I have are : 1) Not in the POY tournament. 2) Active poster

Nominate as many or as few people as you want. I'll use your picks over the next few weeks to select my field of 32.

I nominate arn for this quote...

I think ranking #91 puts me on the bubble. If I don't make it again this year I'm sponsoring the NN.N CBI.

It will be a banner year for the ole donkey.

There were NNNIT participants who were ranked #250+. state your case in the proper thread and ill consider it.

I never got my NNNIT Reject Banner last year. I think the only way to compensate me is to award me the #1 overall seed for the entire tournament....and also rig my match-ups so that I win automatically. Go ahead and just give me the trophy.

Even I find that slightly amusing coming from you guys, of course.

Every time I look at Sparty's picture all I can think about is that I need to work out more!

I'll nominate you if you nominate me.
I dream of a day where I ride the LYNX light rail to a football game at The University of Charlotte (the largest and most prestigious school in North Carolina), and tailgate between our medical and law school buildings.


The dream will be realized sooner than we think.

I want to be in the NIT.

What I've brought to the Nation

1)  I've been on boards for 15 years defending the Niners from all foes.  If you back to AOL's Metro board, you'll find a post from me calling Virginia Tech the 65 best team in the country for winning the 1995 NIT.  The Advocate can back me on this.
2)  I've been banned from a Louisville board, a UAB board, a Memphis board and a Fordham board (for ragging on their rough looking cheerleaders)
3)  I ran with 49erpi when I was in college
4) I lobbied for Charles' #45 to be a number of honor given to the player who gave the most effort (kind of a Chucky Mullins thing).  I am OK that this didn't go thru.
5)  I stormed the court twice in college and have looked on approvingly as an alum twice.
6)  I caught two foul balls at the Niner vs. HPU games played in Greensboro a few years ago.  I gave both balls to kids.
7)  I watched us lose to X in the tourney a few years back with HP (shameless namedropping, see #3)
8)  I'm the defending two time "avatar of the year" poster.
9)  I'm a future owner of two FSL's.
10)  I've had over 600 posts and not one has been bad.  Examples: post #413 "I hear ya," post #519 "Zip it, Bait" and post #650 "Word."
11)  I suggested the marking of the 49 yard lines on the football field instead of the 50.

Screw the NIT.  
Kevinharbin, put me in the big dance.  I've played my way in.

Hooner49 gets a nomination from me too.  Does the winner get a free FSL?

I will be sending out invitations via PM tomorrow. It will be up to you whether or not you decide to participate. As far as I know, you can participate in both tournaments, but Ill leave that final decision up to kevinharbin, so choose wisely.

The tournament has a tentative start date of March 16, that way the student participants will be back from spring break.

Make things interesting. Also, that way we dont have both tournaments running at the same time.

I cant do it the same way I did it last year. My formula is ruined, which was what made mine different from KH's. Im still giving a lot of new posters a chance to make a name for themselves. Im also giving people the option of whther or not they want to participate. IF they think theyll make the POY, then fine dont accept. If you think you wont, accept an invite. If you think youll get an invite and the KH will let you participate in his, go for the gold and try to be the first ever double champ.

Im still taking a lot of posters that are "on the bubble" or below, like last year, i just dont have a formula to make selection/seeding easier
