    I pick Louisville to beat Xavier in the final. I do not think I will win the contest.

    I dunno. The 'Ville is pretty good.
    Apparantly Akron's defense is pretty good, everyone calls them the zips.

    Akron got jobbed and probably should have been the #1 seed even with one loss. They've were ranked #1 for most of the season, they've pretty much dominated all season, beating a number of the other teams in the bracket and have gone far in the past few tournaments. I'd guess it would probably be Akron and someone like UNC in the final.

    It looks like it's UofL and Akron for the championship. I don't know much about soccer but it is amazing what Ken Lolla has done with the Cards. He has taken a nobody in collegiate soccer to the championship.

    This just gives further credence to the suggestion that Tom Jurich is one of the best, if not the best, ADs in the nation. This will be the third sport that has gone from nothing status to championship level (also women's bball and baseball) under his leadership, to say nothing of the success of other sports, like track, golf, and tennis.

    TJ is the greatest AD in the country. It's a shame his only bad hire had to come in the highest profile of NCAA sports. Maybe Strong can get this thing turned around sooner rather than later. Go Cards!
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Lolla is so good that both teams in the championship game were his. Unfortunately for him, the team he's currently coaching couldn't get it done this year.
