Ok, Readership… here we are. The Final Buffetology before predictions are meaningless, and the actual bracket matters.  With the Ole Miss SEC tournament championship, seems like it is coming down to Middle Tenneseee, La Salle, Kentucky and Tenessee for 2 spots. The Buffet sees it as a Tennessee sweep, we waffled on Kentucky, because, well they are Kentucky and having them in Dayton could mean big ratings for Tru.  But Kentucky lost to Tennessee without Noel by 30, and Kentucky got their best wins without Noel, but those wins are only as good as Tennesse’s best, and then Tenn has the big NC over Wichita St, 2 more road/neutral wins and only 1 more loss overall against a tougher schedule – now KenPom and the BPI like Kentucky better, but that 30 point loss without Noel really sticks with us.  If we’re wrong, we’re guessing that’s where….

Here it comes, and don’t forget to check out http://bracketproject.50webs.com/rankings.html later tonight to see how we stacked up (unless, we did poorly, then don’t check it) under abbrevation: HHD

The ball is tipped
and there you are
you’re running for your life
you’re a shooting star
And all the years
no one knows
just how hard you worked
but now it shows…
(in) ONE SHINING MOMENT, IT’S ALL ON THE LINE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, THERE FROZEN IN TIME

But time is short
and the road is long
in the blinking of an eye
ah that moment’s gone
And when it’s done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew…
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED DEEP INSIDE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE ALIVE

Feel the beat of your heart
feel the wind in your face
it’s more than a contest
it’s more than a race…

And when it’s done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew…
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED FOR THE SKY
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU WERE WILLING TO TRY
ONE SHINING MOMENT….
