The SEC(albeit only 3 teams) is proving the rest of the NCAA wrong in regards to how good our level of play is.
This should help all SEC schools going forward for NCAA tourny bids in the future. Tennessee should(I know that's a dangerous thing to say) beat Mercer, meaning 3 SEC teams in the sweet 16.
You would think so; but we've been performing well in tourneys for the last several years, and it still hasn't gotten us any respect from the committee.
From what I've seen from some of these supposed powerhouse programs and powerhouse conferences, I know damn well UAr and Mizzou would've beaten the snot out of several of them; hell, the "powerhouses" are losing to mid-majors right and left as it is.
If folks don't actually watch these other conferences play, they'll never be able to reliably compare us to other conferences.
One huge disparity I've seen almost across the board is most of these teams play little or no defense at all; they just run up and down the court launching shots back and forth. Pathetic.
Blew Pitt's mind when they actually faced a team that played defense today.
