    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    And what's the general consensus as to the 4 #1's? I think Ohio State, Kansas and Duke have 3 of the 4 clinched....but I have no idea who gets that last one.

    Pitt has to be a lock at this point and will probably be in front of Duke unless Duke wins the ACC. Their last two losses are to the two teams in the Big East championship game, both of which are likely 3 seeds. It's hard to hold those against them. They're resume says they're deserving but the biggest reason is there is no one else.

    UNC is, IMO, the fourth.

    Wow....I have to respectfully disagree with you guys....I don't see any way Duke is not a #1. If a gun was placed to my head and I was told I had to make a prediction, I would say Pitt gets the last #1....but I would not be confident about it. And Joseph, UF has a little work to do to get that last #2....but again, I would rather be a high 3 in Tampa than a low 2 elsewhere.

    We beat Vandy again today and I think the committee will treat us well.

    As of this very minute, I say Duke, Kansas, Ohio State and Pitt are the #1's, with OSU getting the nod as the top overall seed.

    The #2's are Notre Dame, SDSU, Florida/Kentucky and North Carolina. I think the committee is going to view the SEC-T as a tie-breaker for Florida and Kentucky. Whichever team is more impressive gets the more favorable draw.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    Well, ladies, we have a date tomorrow...

    Soooo proud of my team....they really have come together and they're playing their best ball at the right time. But I know tomorrow will be a daunting task for them....they've gotten into this habit of sleepwalking through the first half and then turning it on in the 2nd....won't work tomorrow....no way....will take a complete effort from start to finish.

    At stake? Well, the obvious....the SEC Tourney crown...the automatic bid matters little to either squad. I think the winner of tomorrow's tilt is almost promised a 2....but I think both teams have earned 3 seeds at this point.

    Here's interesting discussion....Tennessee....in or out? Alabama....in or out? Georgia....in or out?

    Don't think Kentucky gets a "2" no matter what. They might move up to a "3"-- if the beat the Gators.

    FWIW.....I think

    Tennessee = in

    Georgia = in

    Alabama = despite their nice conference record, I think they're out, unfortunately. Had they earned a share of the SEC title, I can't imagine them getting left out.....but they have a low RPI, not many good wins and a few bad losses.

    And I was thinking about it a bit...I am pretty sure today's winner gets that #2 seed....We have, at this point, quite a few teams fighting for those top 8 seeds - Kansas, Ohio State, Duke, Notre Dame, Pitt, North Carolina, BYU, SDSU, UK and Florida. BYU probably lost any chance with yesterday's defeat. That leaves us with 9 teams battling for those 8 top seeds....to me, it just makes sense that the winner of today's game gets the "lowest" 2 and the loser probably gets the "highest" 3. We'll see....fun to talk about, if nothing else...the committee makes decisions every year that really surprise me, so I could be way off.

    Good luck today....should be a fun game to watch.

    Ok....I am going to post this stat....infer from it what you will.

    In the first half of this game, Kentucky went to the free throw line 14 times. Fourteen. Florida? Zero (0).

    Florida needs to attack the basket more. Settling for jumpers too much.

    Well, if all 3 of Bama, Georgia and Tennessee are out, no way eithr Florida or UK have a prayer for a 2, regardless of the outcome of this game, because it would therefore be clear that the committee had no respect for the conference. If that's the case, UF can hope for no better than a 3 and UK likely a 4.

    You never hear Billy Donovan complaining about the officiating, but he did at halftime...and it's just gotten worse in the 2nd half...that blocking foul on Vernon Macklin was a complete joke....and that call, just now on Scottie Wilbekin was just unbelievable....

    Kentucky is good enough to win games without the sides being 5-8.....looks like you're going to "win" this game....just a shame we'll never know if UK would have in an evenly officiated game. This is criminal.
