    We even leap-frogged St Mary's! They're at 30...

    So if they're a guarantee (as per previous posters), we should be now too...can't imagine even if we lose to a #9 (though #17 in kenpom) on a neutral court we'd drop much further, if at all

    But I still want to kick those kitties to the curb!

    They are a guarantee because they won their conference tournament.

    What's a little distressing, or perhaps its comforting, is Since Mike White's Tenure began Florida's Luck has been abysmal. Per Ken Pom they've been 306th his first year, 286th the year of the Elite Eight, 310th last year and 324th this year.

    Just heard Jerry Palm say UF's win over Arky helps very little. UF is out unless it beats Corn Dog U. tomorrow. Said teams with fewer than 4 more wins than loses almost never get in.

    Don't understand how Creighton makes his field. He's one of the few national guys that has them in the field.

    They were in 46 of the 114 brackets on bracket matrix this morning. We were on 78. This was before they lost. Not sure they make the field. Especially not over us.

    That seems like a worthless metric this year given the bubble teams. What bubble teams behind us in Lunardi even for that category? Almost everyone has us in at the moment.

    Jerry is by nature going to seed UF as a glass half empty, or below the average. A few days ago UF was in if UF beat Ark. Now, UF has to beat LSU, Of course, if UF beats LSU, you know what he's going to say? "still some work to do" lol

    I would hope KU wins, but this is not your fathers KU team, they are highly beatable this year.

    Does palm have Texas in?! Can’t, if he’s using the loss metric.

    Palm might be poisoned by Seth Davis’s opinion of the Gators. He chronically *hates* the gators on an annual basis.

    Nah, Texas isn't anywhere near his bracket. Not even in the first four out.

    If they lose tonight they are at 0.500 on the season.

    I don't see how they keep Shaka. But they might. I'm hoping KU rolls.

    Palm is dumb. Bubble is extremely weak this year. That 4 win metric won’t matter. Also, I don’t believe that’s real or else everyone would schedule a sh*t SOS.

    We learned the hard way a few years back what playing a weak OOC schedule can do to you when you're borderline getting in The Dance.
