    I didn't see the game but judging by the score they took #7 UVA to the woodshed last night with a 81-60 drubbing. Of course, they would face some strong competition even if they advance far enough in the tourney. #1 Gonzaga and #2 Baylor are currently undefeated with #3 Mich right behind them with a 14-1 record.

    It would be very interesting to see Gonzaga go up against FSU in a #1 vs #2 matchup in a regional final.

    One of these years they will break likely through unfortunately, but not gonna call it until Hamilton finally achieves something when it matters.

    Sad to say the answer is yes. Will they? Who knows but they have the players to do it imho. They have a seasoned coach, recruiting is going well for them and how in the world they keep getting tall athletic good players?

    ACC is very mediocre this season. Sure, if they end up in a region that doesn't include Gonzaga or Baylor. It's a pretty wide open year, unless you think teams like Michigan, ohio state, Villanova, Houston, etc. are world beaters. All I know is I'll take Gonzaga/Baylor and you can have the field this season.

    I would rather cancel the tournament on account of Covid, or asteroid collision, or zombie apocalypse, than have FSU win the title.

    Very few teams have constantly played up to that level, NC contenders. I am not counting FSU as one of them. Scores this year have been all over the place with Gonzaga and Baylor as the exceptions. I expect multiple upsets in the tournament this year.

    Gonzaga and Baylor are head and shoulders above everyone else.

    I would take Loyola Chicago as a dark horse over FSU.

    Interesting, the local paper the day before this game was talking that UVA had returned to their defensive standards. Previous two games, held GaTech and UNC under 50.

    Shoutout to kenpom as it explains. Those teams are #43 and #65 in adjusted offense. FSU? #9.

    Sure why not. Continuing the nightmare scenarios of teams I hate (fsu,osu,bama) winning titles in football since our last title makes sense fsu and bama will now contend for titles in basketball too. Now I get to be miserable as a basketball fan as well!

    It took Mike Martin a while before he won a baseball title with them, I think they have two now. In a similar fashion, they'll get a basketball title eventually as well.

    Go GATORS!

    When you say title, are you referring to fsu having won a NC? Did they ever win a baseball NC?

    Don't hold your breath. They have 7 NCAA tourney appearances in the past 20 years, out in the 2nd round in most of those. One final four appearance... 49 years ago.

    FSU has more College World Series appearances than any team in the history of college baseball without winning a title...they have zero baseball titles. Truly the Buffalo Bills of college baseball!
