NIT vs. NCAA

The lawsuit of the National Invitational Tournament against the NCAA begins.
In a civil case projected to feature testimony from college presidents, coaches, athletic directors and economists, the NIT - the older of the two tournaments - is asking a jury to find that the NCAA violated federal antitrust laws.
As a fan of a school which is not likely to get a whiff of the NCAA tournament for some time, my inclinations are toward the NIT. But, the libertarian in me says "the schools sign a contract with the NCAA, they need to live with it."
