Don't feel so bad. Carolina is also a #2 seed, and nobody gives a crap about them, either.

I would say FSU belongs in that category too.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Crown Royal in one hand - stogie in the other - body thoroughly used up! Shouting, "Woo Hoo! What a ride!"

TAILGATE ANYONE?

The reason I think Florida has a complaint is that it wasn't too long ago they went back to back championships.

Well, UNC won the whole thing in 2009 and didn't even make the tourney last year. And of course the year after UF won its 2nd one, they didn't make the tourney either.

Kansas is somewhat underappreciated as a #1, and now with Richmond, VCU, and FSU left in their weakened bracket, it will continue.

I like this, all the way to the title......which I could care less, but since I am the only one who has them as champs, it will be ok.

Well just think about this. In the last 10 years Florida has won more games then Kentucky. They've been in the nation championship game 3 times, winning twice. Their coach has more championship wins at his age then John Wooden did at the same age. UF has no big basketball tradition and it is a distant second in the public eye fo their athletic department.

Florida really struggles to realize exactly how incredible of a job is going on in their backyard for hoops.

In fairness, that's because UNC sucks ass.

You are right about Florida, Tmservo. Even living in Florida, I don't hear much about them even though they have had an SEC championship year and will give any team trouble with their good guard play and excellent front line length. Donovan has developed this team very nicely under the radar the last few years and now they only have to get by Butler to get to the Final Four. I guess the lack of a big-time NBA lottery type player might account for the lack of attention.

I have a hard time seeing the Tar Heels as flying under the radar. Over the past month or two I think I've seen more about them than anyone but Ohio State.

It could be interesting as both Florida and FSU may be in the Elite Eight?

OH did I mention that Bama is in the semi-finals in the NIT? ;)
