    Palm has us as a first four play in game against Clemson. For the 12 seed. A win vs Arky would be huge.

    "I wrote at length yesterday about the poor quality of the bubble and how several teams are failing to meet even minimum standards of success. Some of those teams are still in the bracket this morning, most notably Florida, which at only 17-14 is the last team in the field."

    Smh, how are we below Clemson? Their 2 best victories are VT and Syracuse both at home. And their non-conference schedule isn't tougher than ours.

    I'd love to get an explanation on that one.

    Interesting . . . I've maintained that 19 is our magic number of wins. If the bubble stays weak, maybe it's 18. I'm not confident that the committee will adhere to the NET ranking.

    I'm don't think one win will get us in. Maybe there will be some continued turmoil at LSU that would help us win that game if we get the chance.

    Clemson is #28 in KenPom versus our #30. Both schools have benefited from the overall quality of their leagues, where both are 6th currently.

    Palm is typically much more accurate with the last handful of teams than Lunardi fwiw

    Right, not saying that we aren't close to one another. But thought we were the higher team according to the NET and have more quad 1-wins than they do, I figured we would be ahead of them. In fact Palm is the only person i've seen with Clemson ahead of us.

    They did pick up a quad 2 victory yesterday, but bracket matrix had them as the top 12 seed and UF as the top 11 seed as of their updates yesterday. Maybe that changed. I dunno.

    Who are our two best victories? LSU, and ........ ?

    Clemson beat UGA worse than we did (and then we lost to UGA). They also beat South Carolina worse than we did. (Actually we lost to South Carolina too). They played FSU twice and averaged out to an 11 point loss, whereas we lost to FSU by 21.

    We did fare better than them vs Mississippi State. That's about all I can come up with.

    In addition, we're 17-14 from the SEC, while Clemson is 19-12 from the ACC. That will get you a bump. They're also on a 2-game winning streak while we've lost our last 3. Finally, they're higher in Pomeroy, Sagarin, and BPI.

    So I can kind of see why they're ahead of us on some brackets.

    I'd say @ LSU and Ole Miss are better than VT and Syracuse. A quad 1 win on the road is better than any victory they have.

    And 19-12 in the ACC looks different when you consider they played 3 games total against UNC, Duke and UVA.

    And again, my only point was this is the first bracket i've seen them ahead of us on. Even when taking the average of brackets, we were an entire seed line higher than them. Out of the 94 brackets tracked by bracket matrix we were in 86, they were in 58.

    Will be rooting for NC State to beat them on Wednesday.

    Have you watched this team? Would it surprise you all that much if they come out and lay an egg against Arky? Me neither.

    I feel like they can only beat us if Gafford goes for 20 and 12 or a high rebound number. We have to double him. But most important.....

    Hudson needs to shoot and Allen has to give us double digits. Get 30 between the both of them and the rest will balance out.

    Hudson and Allen have to combine for 30 shots. If they are active they’ll get to the line.

    Perfect world:
    Hudson 16 5 rbs
    Allen 14
    Hayes 8-7 rbs
    Locke 7
    Johnson 7-6 rbs
    Nembhard 6-7 assists
    Stokes 4-4 rebounds
    Okarau 2
    64-58 victory

    I think Allen or Nembhard will have to have big games getting into the paint and scoring or kicking out for open shots.

    Thank God osu continued their free-fall today. After wiping out a 15 pt deficit with under 4 min to go, they lose to Wisky in OT. The Wesson suspension has killed them. I think we cling on the bubble slightly ahead of them at the moment.

    To the Florida faithful:

    You hate me because I am a Kentucky fan; however, I hope and pray that Florida gets in the SEC and tears up the LSU side of the bracket. UF gives LSU fits this year.

    I hope that UK beats the crap out of Florida in the SECT final, but that will get the Gators into the NCAA.

    Best of luck Gators.

    Not many here hate you, Bert. Maybe only Lurker. :emoji_sunglasses:
    Some are watching, though. . . even the ratings you give.:emoji_spy:
    If you want LSU to lose, it's for selfish reasons and that's fine. Gators can't do anything there, though, until they win against Ark. BTW - got any Blanton's?
