Neither seeds nor stadium size nor psychology will matter here.

FGCU already proved the first item doesnít matter, continues running through challenges like the second item without a blink and has one of the most gifted young coaches in the game flawlessly overseeing the third item.

But Florida has something FGCU doesnít: across-the-board physical superiority that neither Georgetown nor San Diego State had to an appreciable, if any, degree.

The Gators have been maddeningly inconsistent all year, but Billy Donovan didnít win two national titles without being able to get his guysí minds right more often than not. The Sweet 16 should bring out that "more often" side of things.
