Which would be bubblicious. Ninth among SEC teams.

Wow, 11 SEC teams in Top 68, and Texas, Indiana, and Texas Tech also in bubblicious range.

Well what’s so weird about the ranking. Compare our youth to Kentucky most years and the hype train keeps them in the top with their elite recruiter! Where we fail to get treated the same way.
There’s one fact to all of this play the games and you will earn what you get.

Our class this year is good but it’s not what Squid and Duke get every single year. I don’t look at top 68 because 20 or more bids go to midmajors who aren’t in the top 68. So the bubble tends to be around 45. According to them, we’re there now. We can play ourselves off in either direction.
