Miami v Texas

After all the pomp and circumstance, all the hype and anticipation that comes with the lead up to Selection Sunday and the NCAA Tournament, March Madness has its Final Four.

That’s right. Florida Atlantic, San Diego State, UConn and Miami. The Final Four everybody saw coming, right? Nope, nobody had a clue. (Well, I guess one individual out of the 20 Million+ in ESPN’s Tournament Challenge did, but outside of that, nobody).

That’s the beauty of college basketball this season. The amount of parity and unpredictability in the sport is at an all-time high.

Think you know how this weekend will go?

The easy answer would be UConn. The only name of college basketball royalty left standing and, after the torching of Gonzaga, it’s tough to bet against them.

In my heart, it’s hard not to get behind Cinderella and it’d be amazing (or more specifically, a hoot and a half) to see the Owls of Florida Atlantic climb college basketball’s highest summit. Also, there’s the Hoosier in me pulling for former IU manager and current FAU head coach Dusty May.

Easy to root for Miami as well. 17 years after taking George Mason to the Final Four Coach Jim LarraΓ±aga has the Hurricanes two games away from the promised land. Plus, you have to love the local area tie with Lawrence Central star Nijel Pack helping guide the Canes on this incredible run.

Then there’s San Diego State. A team that plays defense with as much as intensity as a Tuesday night in the Big Ten. It’s not always pretty, but it wins and is on the precipice of immortality.

Regardless of how all this shakes out, we are in for a wildly entertaining spectacle this weekend in Houston. Might as well buckle up and get ready for takeoff.
