    In general though CBS predicts Florida 2 seeds worse than they are. Could change in final guesses, but majority of the year we could be undefeated and #1 overall and CBS will have us a 3 seed. They suck imo lol

    Overall it changes year to year cause the committee changes their criteria it seems lol

    Certainly this issue of only looking at the final bracket means CBS or ESPN can use the ones before the final one to hype up teams or games they will be airing.

    BTW, I collected the data on CBS and ESPN and not you, as my guess is they make up the two brackets the most people follow.

      Definitely. I only did a complete one last year. I'm hoping I keep doing better than them lol. Using the new system, the selection committee has created a bunch what the heck is going to happen resumes

        Lee deserves a pat on his back.

          Who is the favorite to win the Tourney? UVA looks like it with their D unless a team has a hot shooting night vs them

          UVA always scares me. They can beat everyone if they score enough but i think good offensive teams can take them out...maybe early

          I’d be willing to be some serious money (Ox bucks) that UVA doesn’t even sniff the Final Four. They’re not good on offense, and defense will only carry you so far in the tourney.

          I hope they are the 1 seed in our bracket.

              I don’t disagree but I’d much rather play a team with poor offense and great defense than a great offense and poor defense.

              Even if we are off with our shooting, we are still likely to be in the game vs a UVA type team

              Thanks for giving us a sign, Lee.

              This, calls for halt all our honkinking that Lee dumps on our (his) Gator team. IMO, sum us give Lee a technical 'cause he gets so fired up at coaching these Gators that he crowds the court too much.?? IMO, Lee's sorta got "don't-do-it-like-that" Tourette's.

              The question is how seedy are you, NV? :grin:

                I am with Jay26 here. UVa does not play good enough offense to win the tourney.

                As I suggested when Leefor3 put them in UF's bracket, I am sure their fans would be greatly disquieted by that. UF has absolutely killed them in the last two times UF has met them in the tourney. Of course UF has been the higher seed the last two times, so they have that to console themselves with.

                  I'll have a more set in stone list after conference tourneys, but as of right now, the list is Duke, Michigan St., or Purdue. Maybe Nova. UVA isn't good enough on offense and it's going to bite them in the ass at least once in six games if they make it that far. Nova's defensive numbers scare me, but man can they put up some points.

                  I think we would be a 6 seed if we beat KY but didn't win any SEC Tourney games. I think those bad home losses will drop us down a spot.

                  I don't think Duke or MSU will win it. Both decent but do have major flaws

                  I'd say anyone in the TOP 7-9 seeds can win it all. Top 4 seeds have a better shot due to playing easier teams but no one is close a favorite imo this year. So much equality among teams

                    BTW, I meant to add here that it is UVa and UCLA fans who feel most snake bitten by UF in the tourney. For someone of my age to see UCLA fans dreading seeing UF in their bracket is nothing short of miraculous.

                    I have my reasons for saying those teams. Historical trends and what not. Like I said, I’ll go more into it after the conference tourneys.
