2014 SEC Tournament: Thursday open thread

Marvel at the spectacular incompetence of the rest of the SEC!

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the nightmare of a game between Missouri and Texas A&M is mercifully over — Missouri won, 91-83, in double overtime, and will play Florida at 1 p.m. on Friday on ESPNU — there's only one game left in the set of Thursday featuring a team Florida could see before Sunday's SEC Tournament final, and it's the one between Arkansas and South Carolina.

The winner of that No. 5 vs. No. 13 game will play No. 4 Tennessee in a quarterfinal Friday, and the winner of that Friday game will see the winner of Florida-Missouri in a Saturday semifinal, so it's really not like there's a lot on the line for Florida in the evening's games. And given how poorly-played that game between Missouri and Texas A&M was — as I said to a friend, "(SEC games this year) haven't all been this good, but they've all been this bad" — I would totally understand you not wanting to watch these games, much less leave a permanent record of having watched them on the Internet.

On the other hand, there is a lot of reason to point and laugh. So, y'know, do with the comments down there what you wish.
