As this year's Final Four approaches, I am more intrigued than in years past.
There is no Cinderella team this year, and it feels surprisingly nice.
The level of play at the Final Four should be elite. Last year's games were dull and sloppy. The Butler versus Connecticut championship game was painful to watch.
The matchups this year are like matches made in heaven.
The Ohio State-Kansas matchup will be a thriller. The Buckeyes and Jared Sullinger have felt neglected by the media all year and are looking forward to prove everyone wrong in New Orleans. The Jayhawks have a solid all-around team led by Player of the Year candidate Thomas Robinson.
Then there’s the matchup of the year: Louisville versus Kentucky. The rivalry has already gotten so heated that a Louisville fan punched a Kentucky fan at a dialysis clinic earlier this week. The game will undoubtedly have high intensity throughout, as the Cardinals will look to get the knockout punch on the No. 1 overall seeded Wildcats.
All four programs have elite teams led by elite coaches. New Orleans will be rocking this weekend.
