    Don't know how many of you noticed this, but since the Gators Crushed Baylor on Jan 30, the have won 4 successive games: Home - Iowa State 81-67, Away-Oklahoma State 67-54, Home Kansas 80-64 and now at Texas 74-73.

    If this keeps up, that may end up being a Good Win for the Selection Committee.

    That certainly helps, but let's wait to see how they do in their next 4 (Texas Tech, WVU, Okla, TCU).

    Those are impressive wins, no doubt.

    The win at OK St was probably a tougher win than even beating KU

    The Gators taught them the true meaning of basketball.

    Those last three games were essentially coin flips according to Ken Pomeroy. I guess that Baylor won three coin flips in a row.

    Here's your obligatory "and Tennessee still has the #1 schedule per KenPom" hijack.

    But it's not true! They slid all the way down to...#2. Replaced by Nashville's finest: Vandy now with the #1 schedule in the country.

    A nice win for the Gators looking even better. Though Baylor didn't have a good record when they played Florida if you look at all their games they lost a lot of tight ones that could have gone either way, an indication they were better then their record suggested at the time.

    Not as bad as major college football but...if they win their remaining games I will be quite pleased. Good for us!

    Excellent. We have racked up a LOT of great wins. Gonzaga and Cinci on neutral courts were impressive as hell. If we don't implode these last few weeks we should have a 4 seed, or even better if we close out well and win a couple at the SECT

    On a side note there are currently 9 SEC teams that could conceivably make the NCAAT. IMO we'll have 7. It's the strongest this conference has been in as long as I can remember.

    Exactly, they've lost exactly 2 games, and are destroying Wichita State and Houston in their conference.

    Baylor was dead in the water when we played them but has since leapfrogged a few teams in the Big 12 who are trending in the wrong direction (OSU, TCU, & UT) and who Lunardi had in with his last Bracketology. I expect Baylor to be in on his next Bracketology, perhaps at the expense of other Big 12 teams. But their remaining schedule is daunting, so we've got to keep our fingers crossed that they can keep it up. There are a ton of up&down teams this season. Baylor has been even more Bipolar than us.
