    I will be pulling for your boys as long as they're not playing UK.
    I already told a friend of mine to watch....a sub 500 record and a low seeding...I see NCAA putting them up against UK.
    Great job by WKU and Harper though !

    I think you've got to say that Ray Harper is the 2nd best coach in the state of Kentucky.

    That's what I think too. A UK/WKU matchup is what CBS looks for in the first weekend. Great job by Harper turning WKU around. Pretty amazing in fact.

    Good coach. Questionable ethics.

    WKU will have to go through Dayton, I'd imagine. I'm sure they won't complain too much. I'll be there, rooting for em.

    Yes, most likely a play-in game for them before they would meet UK.

    And if WKU gets sent to Dayton and UK gets sent to Louisville, there won't be a UK-WKU matchup. They usually don't make the play in teams turn around and play on Thursday.

    I thought there play-in games (1st round) on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Or are the 16 seed games just in Dayton on a Wednesday? I haven't looked how things are set up this year. Oh well if UK doesn't play them it doesn't matter. I wouldn't mind it. Makes for good talk.

    They still don't usually force those teams to travel on Wednesday and play on Thursday.

    I like my TOPS, but would argue that Steve Prohm is the 2nd best coach in Kentucky.

    Is the play-in set by regions? I'm not sure. I know Lunardi has the brackets set as the 16 play-ins as Midwest and South. He does have WKU playing Stony Brook in Kentucky's bracket.

    I'm predicting an 8-9 matchup of Memphis vs UConn/West Virginia. I think the ratings speak for themselves.

    So, anyway. Vandy makes its' first SEC final in 61 years and has to face probably the best SEC team in 61 years. Sweet.

    Something looked a little off for UK today, I can't quite put my finger on it. Something was certainly off yesterday. I'm hoping their lack of depth and playing 3 straight may be the culprit and the boys in black and gold come up with a way to exploit it. You could tell UF was running with a purpose.

    Either way, should be interesting. Maybe even fun.

    Congrats to Vandy on the win, it's obviously a bigger deal for Vandy to win than for UK to lose but still shouldn't take anything away from Das Commodores.

    If there's any concern I'd have on the UK side it's this. Outside of pretty much every Phil Jackson coached team, I've never really seen a team turn on and off effort at will. I'm not sure if Calipari didn't psyche his team out by talking about how little he cared about winning the SEC tournament.

    Of course the good news is that as they proved, the Cats should be able to get their sea legs back in the first two rounds as talent wise, it won't matter whether the 16 seed or 8/9 seed is locked in. Kentucky can play for 10 minutes and beat them.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
