Any more free t shirts and lunches to give away? maybe this will work. We did the phones already, how about...........
Bastard better not pick Florida to win it.
Hate to break it to you but he will. It’s the easy pick and requires no thought at all.
Not if you saw how they almost choked against Kentucky today.
Well, at least he is hard at work. /s
you make the assumption that he makes the picks..
He is to lazy for that.
They are made for him and handed to him.
His pick won’t matter. There are a number of teams better than Florida. On any given day the best team can loose.
Florida can win it, but they have flaws, but then again there isn’t a team that doesn’t have flaws.
I do like that when Florida needs a stop they get it. That could be what propels them to the title....But I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a year where a 4 or 5 seed gets hot at the right time and wins it all.
Is anybody else here besides myself sick to death of seeing Obama’s mug show up in EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE? When you think about it, in terms of shear numbers of his images in the media, this guy has a far greater presence than Mao did in China and Stalin and Lennon did in the Soviet Union. I mean, talk about your real life “Big Brother”! I think obama has actually been using “1984” as his blueprint, rather than what to avoid.
He probably will. His amazing insight into what’s supposedly his favorite sport revolves around picking mostly #1 seeds. Truly a visionary and a risk-taker.
I did....I’m a UK fan.
Was it a choke or a UK comeback?
I suppose it was both, but Florida couldn’t hit a FT to save their lives, and that’s what worries me.
That’s right. Florida really deserved to loose, and I thought they were going to until the last second. Not an SEC fan, but us Memphians dislike Calipari so much I would root for Podunk U over KY.
After the game, I felt like they lost. It was definitely more relief than anything.
Never have understood how you can hit a three at a high percentage, but not hit free throws.
One of the perplexities of basketball.
Just looking at the South bracket, Syracuse or Kansas might get them. Soft bracket. One thing that might help Florida is if they make it to win the South region is that they will play in FedEx Forum. Lots and lots of SEC fans, and it is a huge place.
Where’s the “Fast and Furious” Bracket?
I think that you are right
Your pal Cal doesn’t worry about free throws.
I know....bugs the heck out of me also.
Had there been a focus on FTs, UK would have one a couple more games this year.
UK sure hit the free throws against LSU Friday; I was there. Go look at the stats.
UK is getting hot at *exactly* the right time.
yes they did...not against uga though, but then they were hitting the threes.
I was hoping we’d save one or two of those threes for uf today.
you a UK fan?
Kansas State is going to be a tough game....But I will go out on a limb and pick the Wildcats to win.
He’ll pick the Gators. Being number one, it doesn’t require any thought on his part. Kind of like his presidency..
Pretty hard to lose with that pick.
I married into it. Wife is a grad.
GO BIG BLUE!!
The clown keeps using our money to make commercials for his death panels.
UK wasn’t hot today. This was a game that Florida did not need to win.
Florida wanted it to finish perfect in the SEC. I think they went into coast mode when they were up 16, and Kentucky, to their credit, fought back.
Friday was pretty amazing at the GA Dome. I estimate there were 19,000 UK fans present, and ~263 LSU fans. Not exaggerating on either number.
When I got home, I watched a bit of the UGA-Ole Miss game, which of course I could have stayed for, both games were in the same session, one ticket got you both. Even after a lot of the UK fans cleared out, there were more UK fans in the stands than UGA and Ole Miss fans *combined*.
UK fans will travel for a game!
UK fans always dominate the SEC tournament...even when they aren’t that good.
You should lay some serious money down in Vegas on that one.
It’s called Catlanta for a reason.
Also known as the Big Blue Mist.
I love it.
Sure wish they’d pulled it out today. I really have a strong dislike of flurida.
It would have really messed with the NCAA brackets, too, as an added bonus.
Would you buy a Medical Insurance Policy from Insurance Pitchman B. Hussein Obama?
Basic Obama Sales Pitch: Whether or not you like your Policy, I will keep your money, period.
Yet he didn't have time to attend yesterday's National Security meeting held at the White House. Unbelievable where he sets his priorities.
