    12-5, 4-1 in the SEC (#2)

    That was a solid beatdown of the #4 team. Beat them worse than Bama.

    Kenpom had us at #37 before this game. Have to think we're at least top 30 now, if not top 25

    Would be great - but admittedly the most important thing is we're trending upward and playing better each game. Can't overlook the next game too. Need to bring it every night in the SEC, and not rest on past success

    Win the next couple games and we have a chance to break into the top 25.

    Our record is as good as a couple of others in the top 25. I think it may hinge on how the weekend shakes out.

    exactly. They were giving them the benefit of having beat better teams than us, but now we have a signature win (blowout) + a comparable record.

    I hope we aren't ranked until we beat Baylor. Need the guys to go into that game hungry.

    I hope not until March. As soon as we get ranked we lose the next game. Can’t we just be happy winning?

    If we win the next two we will definitely be ranked. Not sure about after this week with the Missouri loss still pretty fresh in people’s minds.

    I do agree on a ranking potentially getting to their heads. LSU is a perfect trap game; win the next 2 and we might be in the top 15-20.

    Most unimportant aspect to this team!!
    They play better when there Not ranked!!

    Not knocking the thread but with NCAA basketball rankings matter Zero

    We'll jump to a 8/9 in every Bracketology now.

    Go Gators

    I hope not. Need to be focused on proving ourselves at LSU, not on our ranking, which this team has a tendency to do.

    I want us to get ranked, and STAY ranked. Whether we are 24 or 26 doesn’t mean anything though. But it would be nice to see this seem go on a good run to head into the NCAAT with a ranking, rather than back in to the bubble.

    I don't know. I think they were shell-shocked and the early ranking was so fleeting that we don't have a large enough sample size to determine how well they play when heralded. I think this kind of young team tends to do well when out-in-front, esp. in game situations. They play better when out in front because it maintains their egos. When the egos of young teams are checked, they often falter. Getting back in the picture just might help to propel this team, though I admit there's much more to it.

    Can't see it being a trap game when they might be ranked as well and currently sit in 1st place. lol

    True, but in between playing #4 and #1 or 2...

    Just need to stay focused and keep this thing going

    If we didn't have that slip against Missouri, we definitely would be ranked.

    While I don't disagree with you the loss at Missouri can be used in a positive manner. Great win today but it(the loss) can show just how bad things can get quickly if you are not prepared to play. There is no doubt the guys came out at Missouri with their collective heads up their butts. I think we will make the postseason and I would remind them that not trying to give 100% all the time can make for a quick exit.
