Just so you know, I did watch the games this weekend. Like many of you, the collapse of Kentucky on Saturday was the most shocking development of the tournament. How could a team that seemed so dominant for the past three months look so ordinary when it counted most. The Kansas-Arizona game was the best so far, a back-and-forth struggle which could well define this year's champions. Unlike most seasons, there isn't one team in the Final Four that leaves you scratching your head, like Virginia in 1984, Providence in 1987, Cincinnati in 1992, or Wisconsin in 2000. Each school can make a legitimate claim as the hottest team playing right now, and no result would be a surprise.
