Comment with your odds for this team making the tournament.
I would say about 40% to 50% right now because this team has lots of issues. The team goes through incredibly prolonged offensive droughts and Maymon is no longer a possibility to give this team a much needed boost. JMO I would love to hear everyone else's thoughts
I would go with around 25 to 30% right now. We can't afford anymore home losses. As weak as the SEC is this year, we can only lose 4 or 5 more games at max to even have a chance.
NIT OR CBI bound less than 5% chance no pure shooters to free up Stokes he will have a rough year
I think 12-6 plus a win in SEC tournament is necessary because based on the way this team plays we are definitely going to fail the infamous "eye test". And because Ole Miss played incredibly weak schedule in non-conference our RPI will take a big hit based on this loss
**** Correction: 12-6 SEC record. Which means we have to beat one of the next two games Alabama and Kentucky at the least and then get hot during the rest of conference play ****

I agree with you on that. and McBee continues to shoot and miss every game. There is no one on the team who is a consistent night to night shooting threat from 15 ft and out
5-10%. We have no offense. And our senior point guard hasn't showed up in the last 4 games.
20%. The SEC is down this year that even KY is vulnerable (they will make the tournament but are definitely beatable in SEC play). If teams wise up and play zone against us 100% of the time then my odds change to 0%.
Not having someone who can score consistently from the outside is mind-boggling. McBee is shooting under .300 in 3 pt % which is terrible given that's his role on the team and most of his shots are wide open. I appreciate his hustle and hate that he suffered the elbow injury but if he can't hit 1/3 of those type of shots then his playing time needs to be significantly reduced.
This team is NIT bound. 0% for me right now. I don't see a way this team finishes above .500 in SEC play....

Really we had to go here tonight. Damn....
20% and that is optomistic
There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction. - Winston Churchill
NIT or CBI, unfortunately.
Looks like I'm the most optimistic poster so far. I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing
IF this team doesn't change something drastically it is zero, none, zilch, doughnut, cubs chances of winning the world series, not happening, nada, no way Jose
I'll say 10% only because I never say never but this team has too many issues on offense.
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Less than 10%, we would have to dominate the SEC and I think we saw last night that is just not going to happen
We need to bring in a couple of pure shooters to help this team. They struggle from 3 and yet still jack up the first look they get from behind the arc. I had to quit watching the game last night. They can't score, they don't move the ball around, the first half way decent look they get they jack up a shot. It's just so frustrating to watch this team play. I hope they start playing better ball but I'm not sure this team has it in them.
10% unfortunately. I don't think we beat Mizzou and I definitely don't think Coach Zo stays perfect against the Gaytors.
100% chance we find out who the real supporters of this team are, though. Anyone who clamors for Coach Zo's job this season should be struck down by the basketball gods.
While this season may not live up to it's hype, can you imagine us next season with Hubbs, Stokes, Maymon, and the 3-some of Reese, McRae, and Richardson? Oh my...
No chance at all.
A open student try out might be what's needed to find a pure shooter who can be brought in just to stretch defenses
