Card counting makes it interesting. It makes you t...

Before yesterday I believed we needed to finish 5-3 with expected losses to Arky, UF, and Kentucky. We lose serve with the loss to A&M, but we are back "in" with a win at Arky. Arky will be the favorite, but it isn't impossible.

I really think 6-2 is a virtual lock. That would (likely) give us a 3rd place finish in the SEC and if we are on the bubble now (and we are) then 6-2 certainly pushes in the right direction.
I believe 5-3 would be enough if we also finish in the top 4 of the SEC tourney. If we receive a double by...

Maybe, but beating one of those teams would have to come with a trade off of another "bad loss"....

Disagree. I think we are on the bubble right now; probably last 4 out. 5-3 in the regular season should be enough and how we go 5-3 is almost irrelevant.

Must be confusing me with someone else. There is no way I would have ever claimed that. I don't play basketball and have never claimed to be better than any player at any level.
