The Select Six becomes the Final Four today and then we wait around until Saturday.
Again just two games on the agenda:
11:40 AM PT - #3 Oregon vs #1 Florida in the Midwest Regional in St. Louis - The Ducks are the only team not seeded first or second to make it this far. And the Ducks have been hot lately, winning nine straight. They will unleash their four guard attack with lots of three point attempts against the defending champion Gators. Some people think that Joakim Noah is the most hated man in college basketball. Apparently, people have short memories and have forgotten J.J. Redick. And just think about what Christian Laettner would have had heaped upon him if he played just a few years later?
Remember. An Oregon win makes me take a one-week trip to that state. Travel agents are standing by.
2:05 PM PT - #2 Georgetown vs #1 North Carolina in the East Regional in East Rutherford - I will miss a good chunk of this game. So I will leave you to ponder things like this. Or maybe this. Expect CBS to show lots and lots and lots of highlights of Michael Jordan and James Worthy. And Patrick Ewing. And Patrick Ewing, Jr. And John Thompson III, who something like John Thompson, Jr. Just don't expect Fred Brown to show up and cheer for the Hoyas.
