I bet there are some ticked off fans this morning. UK brings so many fans to Atlanta for the Tourney, they call it ‘Catlanta’. I wonder how they feel about this??

Couldn’t they let folks in on a first come first serve, with their Tourney tickets?

I think the SEC decided there was no FAIR way to have fans attend, they worked until 4am on the plan. Plus the NCAA selection chair said since the SEC tournament champion gets the automatic bid, they had to have the game before the brackets were released Sunday night. They’ll provide refunds for the tickets but of course, that won’t pay for hotel and travel expenses for the fans.

It was a freak, natural disaster. People should be glad they’re safe.

Normal thinking people follow your train of thought.

BUT Kentucky fans are involved in this process, so logic and common sense will go out the window. :smile:

Someone will play two games, and the first was an overtime game! That will be tough…

[B]Winning two, a shout out to the Bulldogs! Georgia somehow finds a way to beat Mississippi State, 64-60.[/B]

Georgia only way 3 or 4 conference games all year. They have won 3 in the last 2 days. That is very remarkable that they won two games in one day.

Why do I link these stories? The Georgia Bulldogs deserve some recognition for doing this.

[QUOTE]- The Bulldogs took on teams seeded Nos. 3, 2 and 1 in succession.

  • Two of the Bulldogs’ games took place on the home court of their bitter in-state rival, Georgia Tech. A third will take place today.
  • They had one game postponed by a tornado, then became the first SEC basketball team to play two games in the same day in 54 years.
  • Coming in with the worst record in league, the Bulldogs (16-16) won its third consecutive game by beating Western Division No. 1 seed Mississippi State 64-60.[/QUOTE]
