It's a tough question and everyone has different opinions about it. Regardless of what you think of the question, I still think we need to win the NIT to keep any pride at all. Penn State is a team with a lot of quality wins and they should pose a real challenge. The key for the Irish will be their defense. If the Irish can rebound and play strong D, then we should advance. However, that is easier said then done since our atrocious defense is the reason we are playing in the NIT in the first place.
