    I believe KU will have an easy time getting to the Final Four...... The really good game tomorrow will be #4 UK vs. #2 UNC.......

    I'll go on record (you can blast me later... :p) predicting UNC will win the championship...... Any opinions??..........

    I would absolutely LOVE Carolina to cut down the nets again....but I'm not sure this will be their year. They are going to have a VERY tough time against Kentucky tomorrow (although I admit I would rather see them playing UK than OSU). I'm hoping UK may have burnt themselves out against OSU, but I have my doubts. They are a very strong team. If Carolina can get some early fouls on their guys, though, that will help.

    UNC has some spectacular talent with good size and tremendous athleticism, but not a lot of experience. Harrison Barnes made two very silly mistakes at the end of the Washington game that could have cost UNC the win.


    I would MUCH rather have Carolina going up against VCU and Butler than UK and UCONN on their path to the championship. UK and the Huskies are both coming off HUGE wins against great teams. I'm not taking anything away from VCU or Butler, but I think Kansas definitely has the easiest road to the Final Four (and most likely) the Championship game this year.

    I think the East/West championship will feature the Wildcats vs the Huskies and the winner will face the Jayhawks for the championship. Both of those games should be down-to-the-wire nail biters and could easily be some of the best games in tournament history. :thumb:

    I don't love upsets (I'm too much a softy, I guess...), but I sure don't complain when it benefits my team! Go UK! :)

    All of these Elite Eight games were great! Hopefully the FInal Four will be just as exciting!

    YES I got so much ribbing when I picked my UK Wildcats (what can I say we bleed blue no matter where we end up when we are from Kentucky) and they are the only ones still in the tournament of the ones picked by my cohorts :)

    This is probably one of Calhoun's best coaching seasons for UCONN. It was supposed to be a down year and they've made it this far. Would love a double championship for men and women but we'll see!

    All of these close games are making me nervous.

    I like this time of year because the principal always lets us wear jeans and our UK blue on game days. We have one Ohio State graduate in our building, so she wore her Ohio stuff on Friday.

    Great game between UK and UNC. Wish my Tarheels would have won, but I was afraid Kentucky was too strong for them this year.

    UK played tremendous defense and absolutely DRAINED their 3-point shots! I give UNC credit for getting back in the game and making it close at the end, but as predicted, UK was just a little too much for them this time. Congrats to all the UK fans.

    And to Miss84 as well. Your VCU Rams are for REAL! Nobody can doubt them anymore. :thumb:

    Can't wait till next weekend. Two underdogs and two perennial powerhouses face off. Both games should be edge-of-your-seat excitement!

    I know! The guys weren't even supposed to be competitive this year. The girls had a tough time yesterday, but now they're both in the Final Four!

    Watching UNC and UK was like watching the McDonalds All American game again. Enough talent for 6 teams. And VCU has no MickeyDs. Where in the world did VCU come from? Had to play in just to be in the NCAAs. SHaka coached with BillyD at UF last year. My gators hit just one more three early and they reach the final four for the fourth time in Donovan's tenure. Butler gets huge props from me. A great relentless team.
    Go UK and bring it home to the SEC

    Hey, we (UK) haven't been to the final four since I was a sophomore in high school. And we pretty much sucked on the road this year. So I think we should qualify as underdogs as well. :p
