We were seeded a whole lot lower in 1986 and made it to the Final Four that year, so I have no issues with the seeding at #8.

Quit ya bitchin' and just hope they play lights out. Getting the opportunity to beat UM early is good. It doesnt matter the seating, the deserving will get to the FF.

Who cares? What's behind you is not important. It's always "what's ahead of you and how you handle it" that is.

We lost to Kentucky 3 times in '86, but ruined their already assumed trip to the Final Four courtesy of Ricky Blanton. I'd kinda like to do the same thing to Bama this year.

No way in hell they can justify Tennessee at 5 and Florida 7 and LSU behind them at 8. This all because of the Wade cloud hanging over their head.

So Florida is a 7 and Tennessee is a 5? LSU finished in front of both of these teams in the SEC! Someone explain this please! I’m gone pecan!
