    Great, great game. 2 OTs and Vandy had to come from behind after a bad first half. WSU played excellent defense, but couldn't contain Derrick Byars in the 2nd half.

    I listened to the second OT on the radio. Sounded like it was pretty exciting. Though I really can't get into Joe Fisher

    Good luck in the Sweet Sixteen against Big Roy, Jeff Green, TJIII, Dajuan Summers, and the rest of the Hoyas, I just hope they decide to show the game in this area, I haven't been able to watch either of the Hoyas other two games

    50% of the teams in the SEC East are in the Sweet 16. That's pretty impressive.

    60% by my count (Florida, Vandy, and Tennessee left; Arkansas and Kentucky gone) that's a lot better than the ACC, which got seven teams in the tourney and only UNC is left, and three of those six lost to a lower seeded team.

    Agree with your math, but I was just saying out of the 6 teams in the SEC East (TN, FL, Vandy, KY, SC, UGA), 3 of them are in the Sweet 16.

    UT may not beat OSU, but talk about some major disrespect. I was listening to the ESPN podcast about the Sweet 16 and there was almost zero mention of UT. One of the interviewees even said, "Whoever wins the Texas A&M/Memphis game is gonna give Ohio State a heckuva game."

    The only thing said directly about Tennessee was that UT and UVA got easier roads than they should have because their first round opponents were seeded too high. They hypothesized that the reason there are no Cinderella teams this year is not because the committee did a good job of seeding, but because the teams with the potential to be a Cinderella got seeded too low and had to play 1 or 2 seeds in the first round instead of 4 or 5 seeds like UT and UVA.

    I try my hardest, but some days I forget to avoid ESPN completely.

    Ah, SEC as a whole, not of those in the tourney, gotcha

    And I'm not too sure about OSU after their game against Xavier, there's no way they should have needed that missed free throw to be able to send it into overtime, although I was impressed at how well they played without Oden in OT, but of course they should have been doing that the entire game, I think Tennessee has a much better chance at winning that game than anyone will say.

    Considering they beat us at their place with a last second shot, I would say we have a chance.

    The way I look at it is there is ZERO pressure on UT. They can go out and have fun. All the pressure and expectations are on OSU. It will be very tought for us to win, but you never know.......
