I guess I had higher expectations as I was hoping for a Sweet 16 appearance. Making the tournament was a big deal, but I wanted to make it out if the first weekend and felf we had the chance with Petty back. I knew we'd have the pieces, but thinking of yesteryear knew it wouldn't come easy and was sadly bracing for uncertainty of a bubble team. The season has definitely been a positive experience, and technically more accomplished than even my high hopes to this point. I wasn't expecting an SEC regular season title or even a real good shot at the conference tournament title.

With Bama and UArk being the only two teams with a shot at the regular season title the idea of Bama having to play 18 games and UArk only 17 just doesn't sit right. I get the floated idea that the SEC offices were after as close to a normal season as they could (which normally has 18 games.) But adding UGA? What does it accomplish? The Bulldogs are 10th in the SEC standings (two games below .500,) 14-9 overall with little to no chance of making to the dance without a tournament title.

I could see scheduling the Tide against a bubble team from the conference. This game? It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Yes. Lunardi "updates" his projections following mid-week games. He normally has a new bracket out on Friday's.

Based on what we've seen over the last several weeks it's my opinion we see the B1G with two teams as #1 seeds. I'd say UM, the 'Zags, and Baylor are locks.

Arkansas is playing good ball... I'm convinced instead of getting tough underneath they're playing for the foul.

Michigan is a good team. No doubt. Jalen Rose is _____ ?

I'm amused at his appearance on Sportscenter where he's talking about this years team, their chances of winning the tournament, and he's saying, "I'm finally going to get a ring." I don't recall hearing a former player, in any sport, claiming a ring when they're 20 years removed from the program.

Looking around the conference this morning with only a couple of games left there's a lot of movement that could happen with seeds 4-8 in the SEC tournament.

Right now, according to KenPom, LSU is expected to keep their #4 seeding in the tournament. They're projected to squeak by Missouri (favored by 1.) A Missouri win against LSU would give Tennessee the last double bye.

If things remain the same Bama will get the winner of the UK vs MSU (#8 v #9) Friday morning. Like LSU, Kentucky is a dog playing at Ole Miss. A win by the 'Cats and they jump up a seed going out of Bama's bracket.
