    – Notre Dame players – keep praising Kentucky and don’t anger the beast. Just keep showing your excitement to face such an elite team, and, maybe, you’re not going to get the Daxter Miles treatment.

    – Notre Dame will hang and keep it close using its outside shooting, but Kentucky is too deep for a team that only brings in two guys off the bench. The Irish are good, but there won’t be any shame in losing in the regional final against THIS team.

    – I’m hoping for the upset simply because I REALLY DO NOT want Kentucky to break my ’76 Hooisers’ record. I just can’t bet against this team. I can’t. Sorry Notre Dame.

    – Take your pick: Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker or Arizona’s T.J. McConnell. There might be other stars on their respective teams, but both of these guys have been the go-to men in the tourney. They’ve elevated the play just when they needed to.

    – Do you think Will Ferrell will show up to one of these games? I mean show Frank the Tank some love? You played for ten major league baseball teams in one day, and you’re appearing on every show and every media opportunity possible. Try saving your movie with an appearance on the big stage.

    – I’m taking Sean Miller and Arizona. It’s time, and, shhhhhhh, the talent is there to maybe, just maybe, win the national title.

    – Bo Ryan has a whopping seven players who averaged double figure minutes in last year’s NCAA tournament run. He has the experience, but Arizona has more talent at each position. It’s going to be a fantastic game, but again … it’s Arizona.

    – Anyone else forgetting what day of the week it is? These games have me all out of whack. See ya in Indy Arizona and Kentucky … when is that again?
