    Just booked some hotels for the SEC Tourney in Atlanta in March.

    Can you tell I am excited for basketball season...

    You'll be able to smell the dogwoods if nothing else.

    If we aren't in the SEC tourney... we have serious unforeseen problems!

    I'm an optimist. I booked starting Thursday because I believe we will be good enough to not have to play on Wednesday...

    I would say that is a pretty safe bet now that there are no longer divisions.

    If this year's Gators have to play on Wednesday, I think you can legitimately assume that the sky has fallen.

    It's never too soon to arrange your life around Gator basketball. It's a lifestyle choice.

    Great stuff. Good rooms in Atlanta can go quickly, so it's never too early. How many Alabama fans have already reserved rooms for December?

    I'm probably in the minority, but I never liked that smell. There was a mess of them in the ravine behind my place in Buckhead and the smell made me kind of nauseous.

    The approach, as great as it is, doesn't really jive w/ his username, though.

    Here is a pro tip, assuming you are staying downtown and are smart enough not to drive to the site.

    After leaving the games get on the MARTA, go west one stop, get off, and then get on the eastbound MARTA. You will then have a seat and be on the train. Many in the throngs on the platform won't be able to get on and few that do will have a seat.

    I've got tickets to the Final Four @ Jerry's World. Anyone who went to the Regionals last year have any hotel recommendations?
