    I think UF's v. UK's bottom end of the schedule. By RPI:

    UF beat: 257 Gardner-Webb, 291 James Madison, 302 New Hampshire, 348 Incarnate Word

    UK beat: 194 IPFW, 203 Monmouth, 223 Troy, 249 Illinos-Chicago

    These are the kinds of silly things that drive RPI.

    Now if they look at the win tiers, like they say they will this year UF may be helped alot. The tiers are:

    Tier 1: Home RPI 1-30, Neutral RPI 1-50, Road RPI 1-75
    Tier 2: Home RPI 31-75 Neutral RPI 51-100, Road RPI 76-135
    Tier 3: Home RPI 76-160 Neutral RPI101-200 Road RPI 136-240
    Tier 4: Home RPI 160+ Neutral RPI 201+ Road 241+

    By this:

    UF has 5 Tier 1 wins by RPI today, Cincy, at aTm, at UK, at Missouri, Zags,

    UK has 2 Tier 1 wins by RPI today, aTm, at UWVa.

    Past committees including the top 16 teams released over the weekend have tended to focus more on who you beat and where than on losses you had. That would bode well for UF.

      CBS does an abysmal job on their bracket projections. Lunardi is second to none when it comes to that stuff.

        The ball is in our court. :confused: The warying thing is = we can't be like we've been, if we want a run after we get in ... White can't coach his average way. The time is at hand. Go Gators.

          Yeah, bizarre...isn't it? That's all under the assumption that we finish second in the conference and the SEC gets 9 to the dance. Not sure we'll finish there (I think probably at least two losses before the SEC tourney), but we should get to 20 wins. Auburn and Tennessee will give us problems (particularly with UT at Neyland), and even though we won at Rupp you can never discount Kentucky. Let's just hope there's no letdowns against UGA, Vandy, and Bama. Taking two out of the three tough matchups would really give us momentum going into tourney play.

          We absolutely, positively have to win the next two games. After that, I’d take a split or better for the last four games.

            It's pretty likely we split the remaining six games down the stretch. The road trip to Vandy is always a difficult one, and probably the most likely W for the road games. Especially with Fisher-Davis out. I actually think winning at UT won't be as difficult as Bama, but will be difficult nonetheless. I'd take a 4-2 finish and run with it quite honestly. That would put us likely in as a 6 seed regardless of the SEC tournament with a possibility of a 5.

              Hopefully, we're staying serious about playing aggressive D. These SEC teams have gotten stronger progressing through the season and we have not progressed. All that we need is 1 3-pt shooter to get hot in each game, while the rest help work close in & mid-range, all while executing our new stifling D.
              Grow Gators, the time is now.

                Bama scares me as much as anyone; good defense, FT's improved from last year, overall offense seems to be real and they are on the upswing.

                  After at SoCar, I sort of like UF at UAL as the best opportunity of the remaining road games. Then again I fear these guys may like themselves in that game and of course then they wont play well.

                  I do agree a 4-2 last 6 would be godd. Beating UGa is really important in my view and it too is a revenge game. Then splitting the next two road game would be good in my view as Vandy has not folded after Fisher-Davis' injury. Then AU at home is a really big game and I would like to think UF could get that one. The it is at UAL and then UK at home. I would hope UF can take UF at home.
