Florida is in the Sweet Sixteen. Florida was the first team in the Sweet Sixteen, and the biggest winner on Saturday — after defeating the Pittsburgh team that was very good and quite hot coming in by 16, the Gators kept the No. 1 ranking in KenPom coming into today, and sent Pitt plummetting — and got to watch as No. 11 seed Dayton knocked off No. 3 seed Syracuse to make its Final Four road slightly easier.
Now, with Stanford in a tight game with Kansas and Stephen F. Austin off an upset and ready to take a run at UCLA, there are chances for Gators to keep rooting for upsets — which happen to be ones that help Florida, too.
And, no, I don't care that Florida might, eventually, down the road, be slighted for having made a Final Four run against no seed higher than a No. 9. Flags fly forever.
If you want to watch those games and the rest of Sunday's NCAA Tournament action with us over here, we'd be obliged.
