    Is anyone going? Not sure what the SEC was thinking by putting it in St. Louis. I guess they have to throw Mizzou a bone every now and then to make them think they are part of the SEC. I live six hours away....I am debating going.

      I know most of the ticket sales are corporate, etc. but from an optics standpoint, the conference bigwigs better hope KY makes it to the final b/c otherwise that place is going to be empty and silent.

      Having it somewhere other than Nashville or Atlanta is asinine.

        Chicago is 6 hours from St. Louis?
        Pffft!
        Not when I lived in Illinois. Traffic must have gotten worse.

          I had always heard it was 5 hours....and I have made the trip with my wife four times. Her sister lives by St. Charles. We make multiple stops for her....so yea...six hours. I think if I were to do it by myself...five is realistic, depending on when I left and the traffic on the Stevenson getting out of Chicago. If I went, by the looks of things, David Lee and myself would be the only Gators there. LOL

            Terrible decision on host city.
            Something within the footprint of the conference would be helpful.

              Hi folks, just got back from 12 days in the Holy Land. Didnt turn on a TV, hook up to Wifi or pay for overseas roaming. In other words, what happened to our beloved Gators the last 12 days?

                They’d have to bring in the tugboats and barges again to make up for the lack of hotel rooms.

                If you’ve never been to one before, then you should go. I’ve always had a great time when I’ve gone in Atlanta and Nashville. Just be prepared to be outnumbered about 10-1 by the Big Boo Nation.
                By 10-1 I mean 10 Cat fans to every 1 fan of the the other teams...combined.

                  Because it's in Florida and the SEC has a bias towards UF...so they wouldn't want to throw us a bone. BUT, they'd gladly put it in Birmingham.

                    The baseball team looks great, the basketball team is showing signs of life, though we've seen that play before, and Mullen and company are recruiting. They've offered numerous 4 and 5 star kids, but half the board is freaked out because a 3 star LB committed.

                        If he's still ranked 547th in the class on signing day next year and makes it into the class, I'll join you in bellyaching. Until then, I just don't get it. And get it right, he's actually ranked 555th in the class...
