As expected...no ACC Championship and then out in the first round. FSU can be defined by one meaningless upset victory this year. Let's hear all the chest pounding now 'Noles!!!

Get into the NCAA Tournament is like getting a girls'#, but winning it (ex: Gators) means getting to home base!

Sad for the Noles although I can't say I was too upset to see them or that joke of an athletic program Tennessee lose in the first round. I'll give the Noles their due though, at least they got to the dance. Better luck next time.

Congrats to Wisconsin. Atough defensive game on both sides. Their player made a great play to win it for them.

Great season Noles a (preseaon pick to finish 10th) and especially Toney Douglas who helped a lot of freshman grow this season. Look how far you brought this team.TD is a class act and his impact on those young players will continue to be felt next year..

Don't feel bad Noles, You aren't any different than our "Not quite ready for prime time Orlando Magic" as far as getting eliminated in the first round during the few rare times they ever make it that far. The Magic's motto is: "When the going gets tough, we start planning where we're going on our off season vacations".

An 'early out' gives the staff more time to address the NCAA sanctions...

The Noles made mistakes. They should have never given up the lead. Now they will graduate or leave school, and face this bad economy when looking for a low paying job. No more free lunches, your services have been rendered.

This is FINE with me. FSU is arrogant, over-confident, and flapped their jaws all season. Time for reality to step up.

Nothing has really changed. The season is over for the noles in early March while the Gators keep playing. Except for this 2 year bump when our tournaments have swapped.
Things will be back to normal next year when we're back in the NCAA tourney. It's funny how the Gators are out playing the noles even from the NIT.

What is your obsession with the Gators? I'm no more a Gator fan than a Seminole fan. If you are happy with losing the ACC Championship and getting beat in the first round of the tournament becasue the Gators are not in the tournament than I guess that says a lot about FSU basketball and where it is at.
