The road to the Final Four is going to get sweeter. I’m going to step out on a limb here and predict that the Final Four will feature a quad of teams with none ranked #1 in their set. That means that teams like the Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils will be left in the cold. It’s painful for me to dis Duke, since that’s my son’s favorite team, but the attraction of upsets is just too much for me to avoid.
I’m a guy that likes to see the underdog get it’s day and the NCAA Tournament is the perfect vehicle. Emotions and motivations ride high. The big names become almost complacent in their approach, having dominated the college basketball scene all year. But when the time comes, college basketball becomes a game of the heart sometimes and the Final Four is always the four teams in college basketball with the biggest heart.
