Why We Should Pull For Vandy

This stock model is ‘Vandy Hot.

With Alabama setting up the road to the two seed for Kentucky earlier today by beating Georgia, a couple things changed.  We no longer need to root for Florida to beat Vanderbilt, the winner of that game will have no direct affect on Kentucky.  However, if Vanderbilt does lose the two seed is still in play for Kentucky, but now the two seed would  also be in play for Tennessee. It actually puts the vols in quite an interesting slot, if they lose tomorrow they will get a 5 seed.  But if Florida wins tonight and UT beats UK tomorrow, they go up to a 2 seed.  That’s a huge jump.

The guys from the South Eastern conference posted these explanations on the Cat Scratches blog yesterday, but I’ll excerpt the important ones in case you’re confused.

If Tennessee wins, Kentucky loses, Vanderbilt loses, Tennessee would be the No. 2 seed, Kentucky No. 3, Vanderbilt No. 4, Georgia No. 5

– League records would be: Tennessee 9-7, Kentucky 9-7, Vanderbilt 9-7, Georgia 9-7

If Tennessee wins, Kentucky loses, Vanderbilt wins, Vanderbilt would be No. 2, Kentucky No. 3, Tennessee No. 4, Georgia No. 5

– League records would be: Tennessee 9-7, Kentucky 9-7, Vanderbilt 10-6, Georgia 9-7

If Kentucky wins, Vanderbilt wins, Kentucky would be No. 2, Vanderbilt No. 3, Georgia No. 4, Tennessee No. 5

– League records would be: Kentucky 10-6, Vanderbilt 10-6, Georgia 9-7, Tennessee 8-8

If Kentucky wins, Vanderbilt loses, Kentucky would be No. 2, Vanderbilt No. 3, Georgia No. 4, Tennessee No. 5

– League records would be: Kentucky 10-6, Vanderbilt 9-7, Georgia 9-7, Tennessee 8-8

So there ya go.  There is a wide range for Tennessee regardless, but I would rather them not be playing us for the two seed tomorrow, the less motivating factors they have the better.

Go ‘Dores.

    so bascially root for Vandy tonight, that way if we get a 5 point lead tomorrow, the weak minded Vols will roll over like fido looking for some beggin strips.

    Let me summarize: A Vandy win screws Tennessee for the SEC, helps us pass Florida in the Big Dance seedings, and doesn’t affect our position if we win at rocky top. Add a loss by Louisville and conference tournament losses by Florida and Vandy and at least 7/8 Big East teams in front of us, its a 3 seed if we win out. Take care of business in Knoxville and Catlanta!

    I am just glad BTI didn’t put his infamous obfuscation on this data.

    Tennessee will beat UK and Vandy will beat Florida.

    Therefore Vandy is going to get the #2 seed. I hate to be the bearer of bad titings, but this UK team is 1-6 on the road and that’s not going to change tomorrow.

    It will change tomorrow, they will either be 1-7 or 2-6

    If Vandy wins and we win our overall records will be the same, but they would have a better record against the top teams in contention Florida, GA, and us. So wouldnt they get the 2 seed?

    they would be 4-1 and we would be 3-2

    If Vandy and UK win then a two way tie is decided by division record. UK 7-3, Vandy 6-4

    E$SPN took this shit too far, they notified the Officials that UF hit a 3 instead of a 2 and they changed the score….just stick to calling the game

    If Tennessee losses tommorrow combined with a first round SEC tournament loss, will they qualify for the NCAA tournament? In that senario they will sport an 18-14 overall record and 3-7 in their last ten.

    Goodbye Sweaty Bruce!

    Don’t act like a bitch Will. First we are begging for either AL or Vandy to win and now that AL has won u are asking us all now to root for Florida in case UT beats UK. That is such a weak man’s mentality. I can understand wanting one game to go our way and now that it has it’s time to man up and leave it up to our team. They either win or lose it’s up to them to determine their fate. Stop begging for other games to go our way; you are starting to sound like a Louisville fan not to mention a pretty weak writer.
