Duke is losing games due to Zion being out. The voters think that is something that will be fixed by the tournament.

UT is losing games due to piss poor 3 pt defense and guards shooting ugly 3s instead of feeding the ball the Williams. The voters don’t think this will be corrected this season.

UT only won 1 big game at the end of the season and lost 3. Everyone has a chance to TAKE what they need, UT did not. Still a top 10 team playing under their potential headed into the tournaments means, we have some great games to watch. Everything except the SEC championship is still up for grabs. The seeding and rankings will take care of themselves, just win, you can't back into anything at this point.
Two big games. Ole Miss. bet if we'd lost to Ole Miss your sentence would have said they lost 4 big games at the end of the season.

Kentucky and Michigan St has no business being ranked ahead of us.

Least we didn’t lose to Indiana or Seton Hall.
Heck TT has no business ahead of Tennessee either. TT’s best win was a down Kansas, and they lost 5, 1 being to Baylor. Mich ST hangs their hat on beating Mich..... which is good, but dang they lost twice to Indiana and once to Illinois..... they also have Zero “good” wins out of conference.

Tennessee’s sos I guess is holding them back, but at some point you have to count who you beat, who beat you and where you won and lost (seems like they are using straight sos against Tennessee..... but not others ie.... Gonzaga). Tennessee has 3 road losses to actual q 1 teams, and a N loss to a healthy KU. Tennessee also has marquee wins that other teams don’t have.

I know if Tennessee wins the tournament they will be a 1 seed, but in no way should TT and Mich ST be ahead of Tennessee right now. Seems like they moved Tennessee more spots down for a loss than they did all the other top teams.
