    What are our odds of making the tourney if we lose? Is this a must win game?

    I hope we have enough motivation (plus LSU apathy) to take revenge and secure a tourney berth.

    Name and town if you wish to opine.

    I think it would be a sure thing if the Gators win tomorrow, lose and it could go either way depending on how other bubble teams do this weekend.

    I don't know how where were projected atm but it feels must win to me. I think we will win. They got alot of distractions going on.

    Alabama just beat Ole Miss, St. John's is getting absolutely destroyed by Marquette, Texas plays Kansas tonight, Indiana lost to OSU, TCU lost to KSU, ASU plays UCLA tonight, Clemson is already out of the ACCT, Creighton and Belmont both lost, NCSU got whacked by UVA, and Temple beat ranked UCF.

    All that to say a lot of bubble teams are done playing while we got another W today. I think we're fine no matter what happens tomorrow, but it's obviously a lock if we beat LSU.

      Given the mediocrity of so many bubble teams, I think we are in. Not b/c we beat ARKY, who is horrendous, but against other major conference average teams, our numbers are better, regardless of what teams look like on the court. With that said, am I the only one who thinks LSU chances to advance deep into the tourney are enhanced by having Wade not there? I know they had a good year, but they have a lot of talent. I am not impressed with Wade's game coaching skills. I have no idea about their acting head coach, but I doubt he is any worse than Wade IMO.

      My new 'straw-grasp' : Hoping KJ yesterday became one of those players that hates to lose & go home?

        Its going to be close whether we get an 11 or 12 seed if we don't beat LSU. Lunardi has us as a play-in game right now and the computer says we have a 44% chance to get in the tournament as of right now. Jerry Palm has us as one of the last 3 teams getting a spot now but says that spot is shaky depending on what else happens.

        My game-state today =
        1) Nervous : need to win because we should be on the skin of the bubble. A loss is a negative.
        2) Excited for us to play well = KJ near 18, Hayes near 16, Allen near 14, etc.
        3) Want no individual player flops.
        **4) Want White to assert a balanced attack & to continually shout reminders from the sidelines.
        5) Have 5 more dunks today than usual.
        6) Answer every LSU bucket with our score -- not falling in a gap.
        7) Gators dribble low & fast, pass too fast for D to keep up, & constantly threaten to take it inward & do.
        8) Get Reid to foul out earlier.

        Florida takes on LSU today at 1 PM EST on the SECN. This is basicially another must win. Lose and we are basicially hoping for the play in game. We have to beat LSU to feel confident on Sunday. Fight, fight, fight

        GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!

            LSU is running and rebounding and dunking...we are playing passive slow ball and missing contested shots
