NCAA Men’s Final Four Basketball

So it’s time for the storied Final Four to begin at 6:07 tonight when Ohio State University takes on Georgetown. Later at 8:47, we get to catch last year’s champ Florida take on UCLA, who played each other in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game just one year ago! March Madness ends with a bang as these two games should be awesome!

Yet, I picked none of these teams to win the whole thing. Ohio was the only current crop of Final Four teams that I have, though I had them losing to UNC who was supposed to win the whole Dance. Alas, with all my teams out I can enjoy the games for the sheer spirit of college basketball– a spirit so lost in the NBA. I’d like to see Georgetown win it all, since the Big East is my favorite conference, but a Florida v. Ohio State match-up would be great since they both met in the BCS Finals for football in January for that national championship!

I must say that I was sad to see Georgetown lose…they have, in my mind, been long forgiven for Allen Iverson. With names like Thompson and Ewing on that team, they are returning the Hoyas to notoeriety their fathers helped bring to the hilltop and are on their way to the greatness.

The Championship game does look to be great, I am rooting for Florida and also predict that they will beat ‘The’ Ohio State University.

I have to admit that I am kind of “meh” about this final tomorrow night. Florida has the tools and stamina to beat Ohio, setting into motion a huge rivalry. But like the Sox and Yankees, having the other side win once in a while really helps a rivalry! In that case, go Ohio!
