I believe it was Gary Parrish who said recently that the Mountain West would have 4 teams in the tourney, which would be more than (among others) the SEC. Really? Florida is going to be in. The bubble would have to shrink drastically for that not to happen, and there isn't a lot of bubble left to shrink that far.
Let's do the math, shall we? the SEC has three locks: UK, Vandy, and Tennessee. Florida, in my opinion (as well as a few pundits' opinions), is in as well. That makes 4. Mississippi State, with a win over Vandy today, would certainly play their way in.
Let the rebuttals begin!
