Thank you my man. I wasn't dialed in to the Tech 2020 lineup and you were very aware.

Re: NIT

Even playing a couple of NIT games would keep UTAH STATE in the sports headlines and regular office banter so no quarrel there. Agreed that a game or even two in the BIG DANCE would be a double boost to our AGGIES both financially and with a national profile.
