The Kentucky Wildcats prevailed over Florida on Saturday and they secured the #2 seed in the SEC Tournament in Nashville Tennessee. As always, a large contingent of Big Blue Nations is expected to follow their beloved Wildcats in order to cheer their team on to victory.

It’s a tradition that the SEC tournament weekend acts as a sabbatical for rabid fans.

This season is a little more important than previous ones as Kentucky is still not 100% NCAA tournament bound. Most feel that Kentucky earned their way into the field with the victory over the Gators, but one more win would seal the deal. An embarrassing loss in their first game would put them firmly back on the bubble. If they win the whole thing, they could vault as high as a 7 or 8 seed.
