Him and I both think it would suck if FL won.

I want Wisconsin to win it all.

I used to think Jam was hot enough to be a cheerleader, but with skills like that, maybe she was a math tutor to the football team!

I would be rooting for Wisconsin even if it wasn't my alma mater. I like an underdog.

They don't get the top recruits, like the other 3 teams, but Bo Ryan puts together a very respectable team every year. Bo Ryan has to do a lot more teaching and coaching than the programs that have top rated players fall in their lap every year ... year after year.

He's won a few nation championships at the division ii level, but had never made it to a final 4 in 12 or 13 years coaching at Madison, although his teams have made the tourney each of those years.

Every year he would go to the final 4 with his dad. And his dad would tell him that next year he'll be coaching in the final 4, because that's been the one knock against him ... great coach with good teams, but no final 4 appearances. It was hard for him to deal with, but his father always comforted him and made the annual disappointment disappear.

His dad died this past August and lo and behold he makes the final 4.

I'm happy for him. He's 68 or 69 and probably won't be coaching too much longer. I'm proud of the team ... I don't think any of the players were recruited by any of the big programs. They play as a team, distribute the ball, and play tough defense. They have to.

They were a number 2 seed which is high, but in many respects they are the David amongst Goliaths.

I don't expect them to win it all, but if they do, it will be unbelievable.
