This will be the 21st season of The Yarnell Invitational (named after Yarnell Ice Cream in Searcy, AR). As always, it'll be a 6 team round-robin tournament that'll occur in weeks 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of the non-conference schedule. Harding University will be the tournament host. The defending champ from the previous year is an automatic qualifier. The remainder of the field is invitation only based on alblack's dynasty rankings. Link to latest and greatest is at:

Seattle [GNAA]
U of the Sciences [CACC]

Next in line:
Belmont-Abbey [CVAC] - would need Longwood to decline.
Northeastern State [Lonestar] - I think he's playing Derby City
Bowie State [CIAA] - I owe him and he's probably next in line should one of the 5 decline.

I have no seasons left right now so I can't send any challenges, but I can accept them. I'm hoping my Whitman team in Naismith makes a good run in the tourney so I can get a 5-season pack for free.

We're moving forward with Indianapolis at slot #5. Welcome to the tournament fungobatboy!

Opening the Yarnell tonight against Longwood.  Their starting 5 may be the best I've ever seen at D2.  Unreal on both ends of the floor.  I really do think Longwood would have a winning record as a D1 team and would stand a chance of making the D1 NT.

this is just to make us complacent right before Coombs puts up 30 and you beat us by 10, right ?

Seriously, though....... thanks........
