Well my final 4 is still alive! Even though I do have Florida winning their spot in the Final Four, like I wrote a few blogs ago my heart is pulling for UNLV. I think I was one of the few not surprised that Vegas beat Wisconsin. I almost looked like a real expert when I predicted Xavier would beat Ohio State, and they would have if it weren’t for a missed free throw and a miracle 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to O.T. When Xavier missed the free throw and Ohio State was dribbling down court why didn’t they foul? I was screaming FOUL HIM!!! They must have not heard me through my T.V.!
How about Butler? That’s a great story and it could become greater with a victory over Florida. It will be tough, but they have beaten Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Maryland. And don’t forget about USC. Not really known as a Basketball School, they are turning heads with a victory over Kevin Durant. (oops I mean Texas!) That’s not really a slap at Texas, but if they didn’t have Durant, oh boy! That guy is awesome! And give USC Head Coach Tim Floyd some credit here. The guy who took a job nobody could win at, (The Chicago Bulls head spot right after the M.J., Phil Jackson years) deserves his credit. He’s doing a great job at USC.
