Get your excuses ready, because it's that time.
Tip-off in 2 hours.
Kentucky vs. Eastern Kentucky.
Here's my Sweet 16:
Chicago: Illinois, Boston College, Arizona, Oklahoma St.
Albuquerque: Washington, Louisville, Gonzaga, Wake Forest
Syracuse: North Carolina, New Mexico, Kansas, Connecticut
Austin: Duke, Syracuse, Oklahoma, Kentucky
I know, I know--the only upset pick is New Mexico. I'm probably wrong, but I think the top 4 seeds in each region are pretty solid.
Final Four: Illinois vs. Wake Forest; North Carolina vs. Kentucky
Finals: Illinois vs. North Carolina
Winner: North Carolina
Hard to count on Roy Williams to win the big one. If anyone can lose with the incredible talent at his disposal, it's Roy. Hopefully, he'll throw out some cursing in his inevitable post-loss interview just like 2003.
Incidentally, Roy--focus on your own situation, not Buzz Peterson's. I doubt very seriously you watched much Tennessee basketball this season.
