    If we lose to Tenn and Missouri beats LSU then our we fifth since Mizzou has the tie breaker and we will both be 9-7?

    Actually under that scenario we fall to 6th. LSU would be 10-7, Tenn would be 10-7 so they would each get the double bye. Gators and Missouri would be tied so Gators fall to the 6 seed.

    Only way for the Gators to get the double bye is to beat Tenn.

    If we lose to Tenn and LSU wins the Gators are the 5th seed.

    Lose to Tenn and Missouri beats LSU, then the Gators fall to 6th based on losing the head to head tiebreaker against Missouri.

    Fall to 6 seed and will probably have to play South Carolina which would be a very dangerous game for the Gators and would be at risk of ending the season losing 3 straight. This could possibly put the Gators in the first four or at least have a poor seed. Maybe even send the Gators to bubbleville.

    The 5 seed will play the winner of the A&M-Vandy game. No game for the Gators is easy but Martin really seems to give Mike White trouble regardless of records.

    Well that’s because he’s a better basketball coach than Mike White.

    Does it really matter, honestly ? This team has the potential of winning OR losing against whoever they play. They also seem to have a ceiling of winning no more than two games in a row. So they ‘might’ win enough to be included amongst the 68 teams that ‘dance’, or they might flame out. Who knows ? But that is this teams primary characteristic . So it is what it is.

    He’s really killing it at Mizzu. One trip to the dance (loss in the first round), a couple of losing seasons. Yeah, I’d much rather have him as a coach....

    Go get a guy UT ran off...,strange comment man.

    We won 3 games in a row to start the season: Army, BC, and Stetson. In the next we were leading at FSU when Key went down

    We won 4 in a row which included Tenn who was ranked, UGA, Vandy, and @#11 W. Va

    We also won 3 in a row which included UGA, @Auburn, and @ UK.

    Except for one season, Frank Martin is just not that impressive.

    With Missouri's loss vs LSU, i think tomorrow's game will determine the 4th and 5th seeds

    Winner of Fla-Tenn game tomorrow gets the 4 seed and the double bye. Loser gets the 5 seed and will play the winner of Vandy-Texas A&M 2:00 Thursday. Auburn is banned from post season play so there is no 14 seed in the SEC tournament this year.

    The quarterfinal game of the 4 seed vs the winner of the 5 vs 12/13 seed will be Friday at 2:30. Therefore, there is a good chance Florida and Tenn will play again on Friday if the loser takes care of business on Thursday.

    A loss tomorrow for the Gators would make Thursday's game a must win or will have 3 straight losses and may have to sweat out Selection Sunday. Hope the Gators find a way to pull off the upset tomorrow and end any possible suspense for Selection Sunday.

    Gators are comfortably in no matter what happens, there is absolutely no sweating selection Sunday. Hopefully we can make a decent run and improve seeding.

    If we lose Sunday and on Thursday to the 12/13 seed, I will be sweating out Selection Sunday, especially if Ole Miss springs a few upsets.

    I stand corrected and thank you. But since I did not say three in a row against what truly is (in THIS given season) quality opposition (who’d a ever thought we’d be referencing UK as non quality ?? :eek:) , we won’t talk about the actual quality of those wins. That W Va wins seems to have been the best of the bunch.
    But you are right, they managed it. It just hasn’t felt like it. Losing Key was huge, yet we still have two Mcd’s All American types in Mann and Lewis on team. Should he manage to keep both of them (which I do not expect Mann to stay) AND Key is able to return at full capacity, I would think that three to four game win streaks would be the norm not an exception. Anything less will be a reflection on leadership.
