Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Yes, every so often Georgia loses a game that it really should win. And yes, the SEC is confusing this year. But losing to Florida? Trailing by double digits at halftime?

That's pretty weird, even in Gainesville. Coach Landers diagnosed poor rebounding: "You foul defensively when you don't have position," he said. "We put them on the free throw line way too much."

"To say this is a tremendous win is an understatement," said UF's coach Butler. Apparently the Gator seniors shone. But Florida still have very little chance for an at-large NCAA bid: they've lost to High Point, and to Florida A&M.

Should we expect more surprises in the conference tournament? I have no idea: I do note no other surprises down South today, and I see that for all the talk about a down year in Knoxville, Tennessee are still 24-2, and way ahead in SEC play. Is it possible for Pat Summitt to fly under the radar?
