    I still say the last few weeks is some of Pitino's finest work ever.

    Well, nevermind, then.

    Thad Matta and the tOSU team vaporlocked.

    Really poor coaching. Really poor thought process by every one of those guys.

    Wow.

    That's just nuts.

    That might have been the most horrible ending for tOSU. It's pretty bad when Clark Kellogg, an Ohio State homer, is calling out the team for arguing with the officials instead of fouling and letting the clock run out.

    I was worried about Ohio State, but after watching the game I was hoping they would win. Kansas is the more athletic team and I think Kentucky would have beaten Ohio State.

    The last few possessions were bad, but the story was that they went cold in the 2nd half to where the last two minutes would have been shooting free throws instead of high pressure possessions where you need a bucket. They missed some open shots. Craft challenging the big guy on the penetration several times didn't help either. The final turning point was when Craft had the shot blocked with about 2 minutes left on a possession where they had a chance to go up 5. It all fell apart from there.

    Now for the final, unless Robinson has a historic game, it'll be Kentucky winning going away. I expect a beatdown.

    Well, winning my work bracket pool was fun while it lasted. It's not going to happen now. *sigh*

    Ohio State was headed towards a beatdown, up 13 in the 2nd half. Things didn't go as expected.

    The 13 point leads happened in the 1st half.

    I don't think the OSU-KU game really even mattered. I was disappointed the Bucks lost, but in my opinion UK is going to slaugther Kansas just as they would have done to OSU. They're the best team in college basketball and they have been all year. I don't even think it's close to be honest.

    Agreed. A full strength Syracuse team may have made things interesting but otherwise UK is in a class all by themselves.

    OSU has not been blown out all year, so I figured they would have a nice comfy 10 point loss where they never had a legitimate chance, similar to the 2007 UF loss. But I didn't see them getting overwhelmed. Kansas won ugly last night, they lose by double digits if Ohio State played similar halves.

    I just think it will get ugly as Davis takes away Robinson. Ohio State didn't have the interior D to do that (a weakness I have on record somewhere, prob. the Buckeyes thread). UK does. And Kansas literally has nothing else.

    I just found out that if UK wins tonight I win my bracket challenge with some friends and $440. I stopped checking it after the first weekend assuming I was out of it. Lol. So go Big Blue.

    Can they tip this game already? It should have started an hour ago.

    Who gets this title in 2015? I assume Bill Self and KU won't take it.
