The SEC's run is almost as long as the National Championship run was... coincidence? Who can say.

Standings to be updated every Monday until kickoff.

The past Fulmer Cup champions are the 2013 Vanderbilt Commodores, 2012 Arkansas Razorbacks, 2011 Auburn Tigers, 2010 Georgia Bulldogs, 2009 South Florida Bulls, 2008 Alabama Crimson Tide, 2007 Illinois Fighting Illini, and the 2006 Marshall Thundering Herd.

Elite 8 And The SEC

29 March 2014 - 11:20 AM

So, with Elite 8 games tipping off later, and with 2 more SEC teams making the Elite 8 again this year, despite the conference only getting 3 bids, I thought I'd provide some recent numbers for everyone to digest.

As usual, the SEC is the Rodney Dangerfield of college basketball; but nobody can say we don't make the most of our few chances.

As a matter of fact, you could say the SEC does more with less virtually every season; as we put far fewer teams in the tourney every year, but regularly see them go farther.

With 6 major conferences (7 this year because of the Big East split), the Elite 8 is a good round to measure conference success because it's the deepest round in which several conferences could conceivably place multiple teams.

Over the last 5 NCAA tournaments the SEC has received 19 bids. Of those 19 teams, 9 of them made the Elite 8 or better.

Compare that to the Big East, who has received by far the most bids and more than twice as many as the SEC, with 40. 7 of that 40 made the Elite 8 or better.

The B1G has received 31 bids and also sent 7 to the Elite 8 or better.

The Big 12 has received 30 bids and sent 5 to the Elite 8 or better.

The ACC has received 25 bids and sent 4 of them to the Elite 8 or better.

The Pac-12 has received the same number of bids as the SEC, with 19; but only sent 2 of them to the Elite 8 or better.

And the AAC (which just started this year after splitting with the BE) had 4 bids this year and sent 1 of them to the Elite 8.

Elite Eight-Bids (%)
SEC - 9-19 (.474)
AAC - 1-4 (.250)
Big 10 - 7-31 (.226)
Big East - 7-40 (.175)
Big 12 - 5-30 (.167)
ACC - 4-25 (.160)
Pac-12 - 2-19 (.105)

So, not only does the SEC have by far the best E8 to bids ratio, they flat had more teams make it that far period.

One might argue that the SEC is top-heavy, and that may be a fair assessment.

But one might also argue that those top SEC teams have the rest of the SEC teams to thank, in part, for making them competitive enough to have such successful NCAAT runs; and the rest of the SEC is obviously good enough to not only play with, but beat those top teams most seasons.

Anyway, we're flying our flag proudly again this year, and best of luck to the last 2 SEC teams for the remainder of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

Republican Senator From Kentucky Is An Idiot

27 March 2014 - 05:08 PM

Dude went to UK for crying out loud, and the perpetual putz couldn't even get his own ad right...

Oops. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell features Duke in campaign ad, violates NCAA rules

Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell's bid to hold on to his Senate seat hit a snafu when 'award-winning filmmaker Lucas Baiano's' film, 'Rebuild,' mistakenly included Duke, of neighboring North Carolina, winning the 2010 NCAA title. The inclusion, as well as a clip from a Kentucky vs. Louisville game, also got the senator in trouble with the NCAA, which has a no-endorsement policy.


   Mitch McConnell's UK Campaign Ad Goes From Bad To Worse To Deleted

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is up for reelection this fall, and yesterday he released a campaign ad to much fanfare. It featured some of the things that make Kentucky great, including what were supposed to be highlights of the state's two basketball teams celebrating championships. It didn't work out that way.

At about 1:09 of the video below, there's a shot of Louisville's 2013 NCAA title, and then...well, they're wearing blue and white at least. As first noticed by LEO Weekly's Joe Sonka, instead of the Kentucky Wildcats and their 2012 championship, it's actually a clip of Duke winning it all in 2010.

Billy Donovan Signs Extension

25 March 2014 - 09:11 AM

Looks like The Kid is going to be at UF for a very long time.

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting the recent signing of his 3-year extension...

Donovan signed to coach Gators through 2019

Billy Donovan signed a three-year contract extension in February expected to keep him coaching the Gators through the 2018-19 season.

Donovan agreed to the contract last June and signed it in February, according to a UF spokesman.

The deal will continue to pay him a salary of roughly $3.5 million annually.

The top-ranked Gators will face UCLA at 9:45 p.m. on Thursday night during the South Regional in Memphis. It marks UF's fourth straight trip to the Sweet 16, the nation's longest current stretch.

The Gators (34-2) are riding a school-record 28-game winning streak and are the oddsmakers favorite to win the school's third national championship.

UF has appeared in the NCAA Tournament 14 times during Donovan's 18 seasons after the school had made the Big Dance just three times prior to his arrival from Marshall for the 1996-97 season.

The Gators have won six SEC regular-season titles, including three of the past four, and four SEC Tournament titles. UF won both this season.

Donovan is 484-188 overall and 449-168 at UF. The 48-year-old Long Island native recently passed LSU's Dale Brown for second all-time in SEC history behind Kentucky icon Adolph Rupp.
