from Franz's TOTD

Getting eight teams in the NCAA Tournament is just the latest muscle flex for the Southeastern Conference. Sport by sport, the league continues to grow and assert its dominance, the latest evidence eight teams in the NCAA Tournament. It’s not an accident or an aberration, simply the result of every school in the league not named Kentucky or Florida electing to upgrade schedules, facilities, etc. Commissioner Greg Sankey should be given a lot of credit for his insistence that the days of scheduling 8-10 teams with an RPI of less than 100 have to end.

The combination of better facilities and better competition has paid off handsomely on the recruiting trail. If you check the 247Sports rankings, you’ll find four SEC teams in the top 10 for the recruiting class of 2018 (#4 LSU; #6 Kentucky; #7 Vanderbilt; #9 Mississippi State) and a fifth (#17 Florida) in the top 20. Two or three years ago that would have been unheard of.

What the SEC has done this year isn’t a fluke. The league is as good or better top to bottom as any in the entire country and it’s going to stay that way. The formula for long term success is quite simple: Good coaches, good scheduling, good facilities and good recruiting. It’s not rocket science.
helped by some of the trad power conferences having shitty years too. hopefully can get a good record and continue year after year

Dools's "Back Nine"
http://www.gatorsports.com/2018/03/the- ... ournament/

10. People get mad at bracket-makers.
11. All eyes on SEC with 8 teams in. Cal keeps whining.
12. SEC tourney was fine, but Nashville probably better for the next 3 years.
13. Well, it’s time for me to pick my bracket and I know you have been waiting breathlessly for it. I have Florida winning Thursday and losing Saturday. I have the SEC doing well, but not Kentucky. I have a Final Four of Arizona, Xavier, Duke and Arkansas. Yes, Arkansas. America is about to find out that the SEC was no a fluke this season and the SEC teams are going to be thrilled to get away from playing conference teams.
14. Great past sports weekend for Florida even with men's b-ball shitting the bed on Friday.
15. Is Tiger Woods back?
16. Spring practice beginning!
17. Big 12 and SEC could ban Kansas and Kentucky and they'd still find a way to win the league tourney.
18. Dools got work done at the gym and listened to songs.

Be you.
