Yeah I don't know how you could watch that game and put them in over us.
Unfortunately though we felt the same in 2010 but they still took UGA in over us.
Didn't get to watch, just listened to it on the radio. Would it be weird if I said Chris Stewart worked me up a chubby?! RTR

No doubt. Total team effort. Everyone gave 100%.
And that was after beating UGA twice in the last 2 weeks of the season, IIRC.

This is a little different imo because we had to have a miracle comeback to beat UGA in the SECT. Today we controlled the entire second half and won by 10. We showed we are the better team today.

I gave you a plus one because of your effin name. FANTASTIC. Roll Tide Brother
The Dynasty is Here!
But we also had beaten UGA the week before the SECT too.
I'll never get over that. We beat them twice that year and had equal records.
That's why I said depends on the committee and depends on the year. Today was a pretty solid win, though, and early in the tournament.

It was at home though. On a neutral floor we did not really show we were the better team like we did today.
and lost the league title on the last night of the season. that team got screwed. they probably wouldve advanced in the tournament
I just want to give a shoutout to Nick Jacobs. He played great today and we needed every bit of it. Now he needs to play like again tomorrow because we will need it even more.
It was time 2 months ago!

Great win. Great hustle.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY....clutch free throw shooting. It's amazing how good a team looks when they get 7 or 8 extra free points they usually miss out on.
We were assertive on offense, drew fouls, and made the freebies count.
Also - lulz at Martin staying in man defense the whole game. Releford probably had a chub the entire 2nd Half because of it. So dumb.
I was just about to do the same... Kudos to Jacobs for being FOCUSED this game.
Now he need to pass some of that juice to Lacy..
No kidding! Jacobs played much better for most of the game, finally. He, to me, was still very slow in our zone defense and luckily we weren't hurt by it. Thank you backcourt defense! Whats sick is NJ had 12 rebounds and couldve had a few more if he wasnt so mentally fatigued. But, he played a different role today and he did it good enough to help with one of our BIGGEST weaknesses, rebounding. Congrats on his 4th career double digit rebounding performance. We're gonna need another rebounding effort against FLA. I wanna see more of THAT Nick Jacobs from now on. UT played a bad game, period. But they played bad because of our solid backcourt defense and offense. We only had 5 assists! Why? Because we dribble drove them to death.
Now, on Lacey. I cant for the life of me understand why CAG sees it as a good thing to take the ball away from TR for more than 6-8 game minutes. Everyone knows his game and its not dribbling and creating! Dribbling for 5 seconds above the key (while the shot clock continues to hit 5 secs) and hitting a high arching shot doesnt constitute as dribbling and creating either, just to be clear! Its catching and shooting and good perimeter defense. Thats TL's game. He cant pass, he cant dribble good enough and when he does he dribbles for 15-20 seconds of the shot clock. Retin and TR are our 1 guards, period. I'd rather have Levi bring it up than TL.
Here's to hoping that he implement the back door cut and baselines against FLA. They will pressure us and that will be open all night, as it is normally with a Billy Donovan coached team. This actually requires us to cut TO the basket with a purpose of scoring! I wanna win this tournament so bad, its time we win one of these. RTR
