NCAA Bracket 2011: Florida's Route To a National Championship

Despite Joe Lunardi's musings, the Gators were able to snatch up a No. 2 seed in Tampa. This is the road I predict that the Gators will have to take to reach their goal of the 2011 National Championship.

For what it's worth, when Louisville head coach Rick Pitino was asked what team stands out to him as a contender that nobody is talking about, he didn't hesitate to mention the Gators. He of course has a little bias. His son is on Billy Donovan's coaching staff and Billy Donovan is Rick Pitino's former protege.

Let's take a look at each team that's in the way of the Gators and a third National Championship. I've listed each team's Sagarin rating which is a better predictor of tournament success than RPI.

I'm going to put out a prediction on each Gator game day so look out for that.
