Drug testing for NCAA committee?

Let me get this straight. LSU wins the SEC regular season championship -- outright -- and is seeded fourth in its regional. Florida wins the SEC Tournament title and is seeded third. Tennessee, winner of only an Eastern Division title and a first-round SEC Tournament knockout, is seed SECOND.

In the immortal words of Mr. Hand from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, "Are you kids (on the NCAA selection committee) on dope?''

Seriously, I know Tennessee's win over Texas back in December was impressive. But what about the way the Vols ended the season.

I have no problem with the seeding of Florida or LSU. But Tennessee as a No. 2? You've got to be kidding.

You're crazy, the Vols clearly deserved a number 2 seed.

Plus, Memphis got a 1 seed, and Tennessee played them within 5 in Memphis. Home court is good for 6-7 points, which means we really won the game. Why aren't we a 1 seed, that's the real travesty.

If anything, they're underrated. Tennessee played Memphis within 6 at Memphis, and everyone knows home court in college basketball is worth 15-20 points. That's as good as a blowout win for Bruce Pearl. The real travesty here is that the Vols didn't get a 1 seed.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, sir.

I've got to wonder if Dave has been dipping into that Tennessee moonshine. Even Bruce Pearl said he was surprised his team got a No. 2 seed.
