Happy March, Y’all

March 15, 2011

It’s been a minute since I hopped on a That Whiiite post, and I’m not about to write a full-length feature just yet, but here are my predictions for the Elite 8, Final Four, and Nat’l Championship. It’s too bad DJ Kennedy of St. John’s was lost for the season in the Big East Tourney — I would have enjoyed seeing a Johnnies run in the Big Dance, but a first round exit to the Adam Morrisons is more likely than an Elite Eight appearance for the Queens squad.

The NCAA has great parity this year, so don’t be surprised by an 0-fer by your boy. (But seriously, look for Boston University to be the first ever 16 seed to win a tournament game.)

Elite 8:

— East — Ohio State vs. Syracuse

— West — Duke vs. UConn

— Southwest — Louisville vs. Notre Dame

— Southeast — Kansas St. vs. Florida

Final Four:

— Ohio St. vs. Duke

— Louisville vs. Florida

Nat’l Championship

— Duke 74 vs. 60 Florida

Also, I love the new TV format for the tourney. More Charles Barkeley and Kenny Smith talking basketball is more good. Ufck Billy Packer.

Enjoy the Dance.

*UPDATED Wednesday, March 16, 10:55 AM: News of Kyrie Irving’s return has me hopping off Jared Sullinger and onto the Dukies [pause]. Irving is the consensus #1 pick if he declares, and adding a tourney run/nat’l ‘ship to his resume would be too epic.
