march madness: final four edition.

i'm completely disinterested in the ncaa tournament now.
i think i'd rather go to san antonio to see the alamo than to see either one of these games.

k maybe thats not true. i'd rather watch the jayhawks get steamrolled by the tarheels.
and memphis/ucla is going to be a pretty incredible matchup: dorsey/love and rose/collison.

however. here are my minimal thoughts on the final four this year. other than that its a total snoozer having all #1 seeds.

predictions:
north carolina 82 - kansas 69.
memphis 77 - ucla 74

i have ucla winning it all - but i dont see that happening.

extremely impressed: memphis.
very impressed: north carolina.
not impressed: ucla.
who cares about kansas?

combined seeds played:
memphis = 16 + 8 + 5 + 2 = 31
unc = 16 + 9 + 4 + 3 = 32
ucla = 16 + 9 + 12 + 3 = 40
kansas = 16 + 8 + 12 + 10 = 46

i'd be interested to see if any team has ever played higher seeds and made it to the final four.
i bet not. lame.

i wouldn't mind seeing memphis win it all.

i also wouldn't mind seeing bill self run off to stillwater after they lose tomorrow.

sports i'm more excited about than ncaa basketball right now: baseball.

-ap.

POSTGAME EDIT:
i've decided that for the first 15 minutes and the last 5 minutes ku was employing magic.
tyler hansbrough was under the imperius curse
and the san antonio spurs (who lost by 26 last night in utah) deviously switched places with the jayhawks by drinking polyjuice potion:

tony parker = mario chalmers
manu ginobili = brandon rush
fabricio oberto = russell robinson
kurt thomas = sasha kaun
michael finley = darnell jackson
and
tim duncan = cole aldrich.

this was all the work of former kansas guard and now san antonio reserve jacque vaughn.
....so that explains it. its like harry potter meets space jam.

i saw roy on the riverwalk tonight. i told him to beat ku. i hate ku. a lot.

also saw oscar robertson and john edwards. not together. that would be odd.

John Buck... tearing it up as ever.

Let's go to a Royals game this summer.

That'd be neat.
