    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I get that.

    It seems to me that recently everyone wants to be entitled to their own facts.

    They were leadin with a minute or so left @ Kansas and lost by 3 two games ago. They're not as bad as their record.

    Michigan St lost by 10 at home to a mediocre Michigan team not too long ago. Will they not be considered a top rated seed?

    After watching Texas at PK80 I want no part of them in the tourny. I see them making the sweet 16.

    On paper, Georgia and South Carolina are very similar

    Well since we beat the crap out of Baylor and fell 3 spots in the latest AP poll, I would say the SC loss was a really bad loss. If you don't think so, look at Oklahoma, who is still #12, despite losing 3 of the last 4 games. Also, Kentucky is ranked ahead of us now after falling out of the Top 25 and so is Tennessee.

    Hayes made the comment they looked to be very physical on defense.

    But you have to take the big 12 into consideration as the reason Texas Tech is ranked so high is because they played in a conference that is not nearly as good as most thought it would be. In other words several gimmes. In the SEC they would be middle of the road.

    I'd surely call it a bad loss as we dropped three spots. Surely now it is easy to see "good" wins and "bad" losses matter.

    It was a loss. It was in no way a good loss. It was not a horrible loss. When you lose you drop in the polls.

    Go ahead and claim victory.

    That Oklahoma ranking is insane. All because the media wants more Trae Young stories.

    Thank you.
    Again, speaks to an overrated conference. The SEC just showed America that.
    Kansas=very good

    Rest of conference........
    Oklahoma- good but overrated with a great player in Young.

    Texas Tech-good but in SEC or ACC they would not be ranked due to 2-3 more losses.

    Texas-Solid but Bamba can't carry.

    That's it and teams 2,3, and 4 are a little above average at best in the SEC or ACC.

    Can I have some of what you are smoking?

    Tech went into Allen Field House and slapped Kansas. And Kansas is really good this year.

    So who are these 2 to 3 better SEC teams that could go to Auburn and beat them easily? These would be the teams that would beat Texas Tech, right?
