Man that Pentagon event would be ideal then. I'm guessing there's a promoter paying all or part of the expense to bring the teams in. So a free (or deeply discounted), neutral-court game against a quality opponent would have been nice.

Yeah, would have been helpful.

Still have the Nassau Championship MTE that has had solid fields unless we fell out of that, too. Really wish they would announce that either way because I think I'd go.

Really good game to get. Don't know what Ohio State did in the portal season but they were ripe for a P5 scalp last year, hopefully it's the same this season

They were a completely different team at the end of last season after they fired Holtman and was one of the teams I was hoping to not face in the NIT.

I expect them to be much improved this year, so this won't be an easy game at all.

Hopefully we put that 90k to good use.

Wasn't it reported a while ago that Bradley/UNI were paying around 60 for Summit/OVC home games?
 
Believe former coach shared that ISU basketball program received 100k from last year's Michigan State game, for context.

Would love to learn that Ohio State is paying the hotel tab.

That's what the 95k is for.
90K is the reported amount. My point is that if the basketball program receives 10k less from last year's Michigan State game payout, that it would be nice to negotiate add-ons, such as Ohio State paying hotel tab. I realize this is unlikely, as other posters explained that ISU likely lacks negotiating leverage with a P5 school.

Does anyone know if there's a lot of negotiation occuring between coaches in order to complete non-conference schedules? Mildly curious

My guess is that P5 schools dictate terms to mid-majors, & there's sometimes more opportunity to negotiate between comparable schools.
