    Yea, locked in as at least a 10-seed. Keep on moving up.

    Playing on the road actually works in our favor, these days. But those two wins over the regular season champs sure sounds sweet, in any venue!

    Not that it matters now with the Gators win, but say they had lost … how much stock did everybody put in Lunardi's pre-game analysis that chances of making the tournament dwindled to 27% or 29% (I can't remember which) with a loss? I have felt all along that two wins in the SEC Tournament were needed, but that odds line seemed awfully punitive coming off a substantial win Friday and the quality of the competition today.

    Lunardi, who was every Gator's favorite fortune teller the last two weeks with his continued inclusion of UF in his bracket, sure changed his tune starting yesterday, first bumping the Gators to a play-in game and then today's pre-game calculation.

    That wasn’t lunardi. That was espn’s “BPI” index. Which the commentators pretty much tore apart that 20 something percentage chance with a loss both saying they thought we were in.

    I'd rather be a 10 than an 8. The winner of the 8-9 gets the honor of playing a 1-seed (presumably, unless it's Virginia) in the 2nd round.

    It would be awesome if we could get a 10 seed in Jacksonville. :)

    Be great, but I don't think the committee would let that happen. Could you imagine the whining from the higher seeds in that regional if they had to play the Gators in Jax?

    Lunardi moved us to "Last four byes" according to a graphic just shown as AU/USC went to the half.

    Just sad at this point. Goodness gracious, would love to hear his logic at leaving us in that group. It was a quad-1 win.

    "Last 4 byes" is a good place to be. Usually a 10 seed.

    I would rather play Virginia than any other 1 or 2 seed. Both play great defense and first to 40 may win.

    Could still be an 11 seed too. That's my frustration. Think we've done enough to get off the 11 line for good.

    Be nice to catch someone like Cincy in a 6/11 matchup, then maybe a Texas Tech 3 seed. I like those matchups
