Let’s be honest it really doesn’t matter. We want to stay in the top 4 but being number 1 doesn’t mean much other bragging rights. All that goes away at tourney time.
Let's not discount bragging rights. That was a great feeling waking up in 2008 as the #1 ranked team in college basketball (only lasted one week) after beating Memphis. I would love to have that again.

Would like to stay top 2 or 3 until conf tourney. Run the table and be regular season and SEC tourney champs then take the overall #1 seed in the dance.

A number 1 ranking is historic for our program. To stay there for more than 3 days would be an achievement we have never seen. So yes it does matter. It would also benefit us in recruiting. There is a difference in telling a recruit we are #3 and the number 1 team in the land. Go big orange!!!
