Three reasons why - 1. I think it's consensus that to be a lock we've got to get to Sunday. That said, 2. Do you really want to have to knock off Vandy two weeks in a row to do it? I feel much more comfortable playing Florida than Vandy. 3. Miss St (6 seed) or Ole Miss (7 seed) in quarters. Although RPI is just slightly different, I've got to think a W over State would be more visually appealing to the committee that one over Ole Miss. Don't get caught up in the hoopla of finishing second. Think long-term and not short-lived hysteria. edit - I've now edited the original title to clear up any confusion of what I mean in case posters are having general problem understanding the intent of this thread. I am sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
