Just because college basketball essentially mandates that the 2 teams in the finals end the season ranked 1 and 2, don't go thinking UK was better than UF... we punked y'all's ass 3 times last season in every environment available.
The only team UK beat last year that UF lost to was Wisky, and that early UF loss to Wisky was 6 points and came without Wilbekin and DFS available... hell, we had walk-on forward Jacob Kurtz playing 21 minutes.
On the other hand, the teams UF beat that UK lost to were us obviously (3 times), UAr (who you lost to twice), LSU, and USC (of all teams).
So, you can say we're 2nd place in this conference all-time; but make no mistake, no one gives a damn what UK did either, runner-up is still 1st loser... and UK was 2nd place in this league last year.
The regular season is nothing more than a tool to prepare a team for the tourney.
