No way we land it honestly...but ill be happy with a reg sec title, sec tourney title, and a two seed! No number 1 besides Indiana is worrisome if we are healthy...well duke with Kelly maybe.
I agree with this about winning the SEC and hopefully the SEC tourney. 1 or 2 seed is fine and just hope if we are 2 seed, we don't draw Indiana. I disagree that we can't land a 1 seed, though. Would have to win out and other lose, but it could happen. Every team has lost when you thought they would win.
Yep, and you can guarantee someone like Indiana will lose in their tournament. Especially Miami or Duke though, because they are in the same conference.

In a word, yes. That being said should be a #2 if we make it through the SEC tourney. Maybe a argument for the top line if this happens based on the results eleswhere. lets face it we've not been media darlings and thats not changing any time soon. But I don't think it's necessary for us to make a deep run.
What is being ignored here is that if UF can beat Vandy and with at UK and Yeguete can contribute in those games, the NCAA selection committee has the option of discounting the losses at UAr, at UMo and at UTn when Yeguete was out. That makes the questions of where UF is in the number 1 seed sweepstakes a bit tougher to handicap.
They will for Duke with Ryan Kelly. Even Miami gets a pass for there horrid losses earlier in the season... Gets blamed on injurys and then swept under the rug. Maybe it's an ACC thing. It's obviously something to be considered and I hope that's what will take place. Who knows though...? Maybe the committee won't look at UF the same way the media/polls do. I think we end up a very good seeding. RPI and BPI mean alot.

Give me schools that will even play 15 (HALF THE FRIGGIN SCHEDULE) total games on road and neutral sites. I find Florida, Louisville, Miami, and Gonzaga. Gonzaga and Louisville will have fewer losses (1 and 4). Miami will have the same number of losses. Gonzaga and Louisville both lost home games though.
Road struggles? Away from home we're 9-5. Kentucky could be 10-5 if we can get it done. Nobody adds those two neutral games against Middle Tennessee and Air Force (top 100 opponents).
There are also very few high major schools that went on the road 4 times out of conference (committee takes notice because you choose your non conference schedule)
Is our road record fantastic? No, but when you play that many games, it's not always going to work out so well.

So much for the case for IN being a #1 seed. Took a hit at home last night from OSU. At least the Gators win at home. IN lost to Wisky at home as well.
If FL can close with 5 consecutive wins, maybe they get a #1 seed if all the guys are 100% healthy. If not, no big deal. #2 or #3 seed isn't bad either. As most veteran coaches say every year, once you get past the 1st round in a tourney, there are no more easy games!
Road losses are worse than home or neutral court losses? I don't get it. Should we trade a couple road losses for home losses. I guess that would help. You are supposed to win at home (We are undefeated there). You are more vulnerable on the road (We have lost to all top 75 teams there).
I know they aren't great wins but we have beaten Texas A&M (Beat UK, Missouri), FSU (Beat Maryland twice, BYU), LSU (Beat Missouri, Bama), UGA (Beat USCw, UT twice, LSU, T A&M twice), Mississippi State (Beat Ole Miss, UGA), Auburn (Beat Bama, LSU, FSU, and Yale (7-4 at home not counting the UF loss)) on the road. 6 of those 7 teams are teams from major conferences. It's not like we are Arkansas-like on the road as opposed to home.

It's the road losses combined with the lack of a meaningful win in more than 2 months that will cost us a #1 seed.
A 2 seed is fine w/ me. No teams really jump out to me this year in the tourney as a guaranteed winner. No losses on neutral courts and at home this season w/ a halfway healthy roster...this team will be dangerous come tourney time.
