Six games left in regular season -- anyone want to predict?

Vandy -- win
@ Ole Miss -- win
@ Kentucky -- loss
Miss State -- tough win
@ Florida -- tossup
@ South Carolina -- tossup
Alabama -- win

So, that would put us at 10-4 with two tossups. Get them both (a tall order) and we're 12-4 at the end of the regular season. Lose them both, and we're 10-6.

12-4 would, in my opinion, be a pretty good ending conference record. Rather have a few more (the LSU and Auburn losses), but I'd take it.

Thoughts?

thoughts??? no. you did the same thing i did last night after the game and i'm thinking close to the same. i'm counting the tossups as losses. it's gonna be close getting to 20.

i'm saying 10-6

By the way who cares about the ACC? It's not probable we'll play ACC this year. It IS good basketball however!!

Mocs,

With the number of ACC teams that will be in the NCAA, I suspect we will see one in the 2nd round ... IMO. It will indeed be tough to make the round of 16 this year.

Go Vols!

This game did nothing to enhance the SEC's basketball
reputation. Georgia did not bother to show up. The Dawgs
are an embarrassment to their league, their school and their
parents. The A.D. should collect their uniforms and go to
the house! As for Tennessee, I doubt there has ever been a
weaker team tied for first place this late in the season.
Fundamentally, they continue to amaze. Same mistakes over
and over. Discipline? What discipline? Fast-break success
rate is about 20 percent. Bruce has been a major disappointment. He has turned in an AAU-type coaching
performance. Spring football: please hurry!

Not sure who holds the tie breaker, but i think LSU is the best in our league at this moment, Congrats to all the UT fans on a good win and remember a win is a win is a win no matter the opponet

Thanks for the link. MP fired a pretty good shot at Finebaum! W/friends like Finebaum, who needs enemies?

it was a convincing win but even Bert said Ga wasnt playing with any pride or competing much ( didnt say it but suggested they were playing like a team who has given up)

Hate to be neg after a win but against good teams continued boneheaded plays are going to beat us again---twice last nite we foul the 3 point shooter to give him 3 FT attempts?-----JP again was guilty of one and that the the 3 time hes done that in the last 5 games???????-----just continued bad BB IQ so many instances of this basic NONO-----got to wonder if these guys have the IPODs in their ears during the practices where everything BP coaches is blocked out----------such mistake will lose games against good teams in closer games

KFart? Love your enthusiasm there good buddy. I know. I'm not your buddy!
I can think of a lot of weaker teams. However you are probably right about some of it. I still think coach is a great coach...otherwise this team would have fewer wins. They need to kick it in gear against Vandy or it's gonna be another loss at home.

Have to say Memphis looked good against Gonzaga...a lot better than you did against Tennessee. 'Course Zags did help you somewhat 1st half.
Still Memphis was clearly the better team.

A win against a lousy team on our home court. Out rebounded them by only two.

We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there (Smokey and the Bandit). I just aged myself didn't I?

Not necessarily. That flick is always on somewhere.

you beat me too it--------thats some concentrated Koolaid this one is on if he concluded this after beating a Ga team that essentially has given up and with no more fight

OK, gotta give Memphis props on their defense tonight...even though some of you interlopers are trash. Any time you hold any team, including Tulsa, to 37 points...that's impressive. However, when Memphis has more national banners than UT, then you can act like the goat-sucking scum you are and bash everything about us. Until then, we are 7-3 against you head to head in the last 10 and it don't mean JACK SHITE if you don't win it ALL! Remember how your elite team pounded our sorry team by a whopping 2 points? We still own you, Tiger High!

I have been to TBA and there is not a single NC Banner hanging there for the MEN vols either. Got any final fours? no....(Memphis has 3) Got any Elite 8's? no....(Memphis has been that far three years straight) Maybe you will have another banner for the NIT this year!

You don't own anything, even in your own league!

It's almost March and you are fading again. That team you claim to be so superior over is looking at a #2 or #3 seed. Nothing seems to change but your coaches.

I guess it would go to Western Division record. FL would be eliminated in your scenario due to head to heads although they have beaten SC once. Bottom line is that it doesn't matter who would hold the tie breaker now. I do know TN has to go on the road to all 3. SC and FL have games at home against the tiebreaking teams.

In case this is a serious question, the answer is that athletes probably get the flu at least as often--and probably more often--as non-athletes. For one thing, studies have shown that highly-conditioned athletes often have less natural resistance than only moderately fit people. I know it sounds contradictory, but elite athletes actually spend much of their active lives poised on a very fine edge of metabolic functioning, and it is surprisingly easy to fall off of it. For another thing, consider all the travel, odd hours, strange food, exposure to germs in hotels, restaurants, airplanes, buses, and so forth that athletes experience and it is not surprising that many of them get sick fairly often. Of course, it is all too likely that your comment was a cut of some kind against Tyler, in which case this was wasted(;-P)!

10-6 in the conference, if they play well in the SEC tournament, get a 5 or 6 seed.

Thoughts?

I think worse case 10-6 would put us on the bubble, and depends on the SEC tourney. If we can go 12-4, we are in with a mid number seed 7-8.

If we go 12-4 and win the SEC, we could go as high as a 4-5 seed.

Now I'm even more confused. Who gets it? Ithink SC is the better team but that's because I don't like Florida much.
