    Yes smartassess I know this is only November :)

    Couple Notes:
    1. Love Florida's bracket until the possible elite eight game vs Cuse
    2. NCAA is now going to let teams possibly play each other from the same conference in the early rounds, with the possible Florida LSU game as an example.
    3. Love to know why Ohio State is a 2 seed (Do they even play a rank team in non conference play?
    4. Kentucky fans would sure love their seeding ;)

    UF facing LSU that early is not going to happen.

    Tennessee isn't a tournament team. They're terrible.

    They looked a lot better against Wichita State. Tonight, they took quite a step backwards.

    I see the Gators at 26-6, but adding two wins in the SEC tourney, so a three seed would be about right. If this team avoids injuries, plays to its potential, and if Walker fits in like we all hope he will, they could lose as few as four games and have a chance at a two or maybe even a one seed.

    Barring 3 or 4 bad in-conference losses, if this team wins the SEC Tourney, they should be a 2 even at 26-6. I'm concerned with away games myself (our away games against the SEC West always scare me). But if the cards pay out just right, I don't see that many teams markedly better than us with an equivalent SOS, especially when I think teams are going to be penalized for playing weak OOC schedules (tOSU, I'm looking at you).

    Every year we think they're "terrible", but they turn our games into wrestling matches and often beat us twice. Additionally, they get jacked up when they play UF and UK. We'll be fortunate to split our games with them, but we'll end up finishing a few games ahead of them in the SEC race, regardless of the head to head results.

    as a #3 seed, if we won in round 2 ( round 1=first 4), we would play the winner of the #6/#11 game (in round 3).

    the following week in the sweet 16 could come LSU should they survive UVA and Villanova in the CBS bracketology

    I don't know how good they are, but they have better wins than anyone in the country.

    Good point. Those wins over MSU and L'ville are big resume boosters. :p

    I wouldn't be surprised if they beat us in Knoxville. They always play us tough and do have good talent.

    But in talking about bracketology, I stand by what I said. They're not a tournament team. They really miss Golden. Their guards can't shoot, and their point guard play is inconsistent at best. Barton is terrible, and Thompson is young. Their frontcourt is good, but it's of no use when their guards struggle to get the ball down to Stokes and Maymon.

    In the SEC, I think UF, UK, and LSU are definitely tournament teams. Missouri has played well against a pretty weak schedule, but they'll probably make it. Arkansas and Ole Miss both have decent chances. Tennessee and Alabama have killed their chances in non-conference play, and both would have to finish near the top of the league to put themselves in discussion for a bid.

    Watching UT in both Wichita State and NC State games, they really live or die based on how well they shoot the three.

    By the time we play them, I think Chris Walker will be a contributor and he will give Stokes fits with his length. DFS will bother McRae.

    If we defend the three and inbound the ball well, we can sweep them.

    UNC is easily a top 10 team by year end with some bad early losses.

    Ft shooting is just killing UNC My daughter is a frosh there and told me after midnight madness that they were just awful from the line. It's caused all 3 of their losses.

    Missing 23 FT last night was just brutal. If they keep that up, they'll be hard pressed to finish in the top 3 in the ACC.
