Sixty Four, Minus Sixty Two, Equals Two

I can't believe I didn't have them paired up in the finals. I did four pick sheets with various different methods on how I picked the teams this year. I had Florida winning it all and I had Ohio State winning it all. Not once did I pick Florida and Ohio State to meet in the Championship match up. I was so sure that one of the two would win this tournament, yet I neglected to see the most obvious match up of all. Florida vs Ohio State.

Talk about a dream come true match up for the NCAA selection committee. They hit the home run on this years schedule. You get the number one ranked team in the nation versus last years championship team. Could it get any better than the game on Monday night? I'm psyched! I can't wait.

The odd thing was watching both games unfold. Both teams struggled to get the final four. Coming from behind to win in many of their earlier games. Tonight was not the case. They came to play, they got the lead and never looked back. Ohio State still had the foul trouble with Greg Oden, but they've now won their last three games with him sitting on the bench for the majority of the game. They will need him to stay out of foul trouble on Monday if they expect to win.

Florida was on cruise control. It was hardly a contest this time around with UCLA. Florida looked like they are in top shape to repeat as National Champions two years in a row. A feat that's rare these days in any sport. Five returning starters from a championship team, why shouldn't they win again? When is the last time that has happened?

I'll be adding two new guidelines to follow based on this years tournament on how you can win next years tournament. I'll release them a little later on, but I have mentioned one already.
